Named after the legendary Athletic Bilbao striker Rafael “Pichichi” Moreno, the Trofeo Pichichi or the Pichichi Trophy recognizes the top goalscorer of a La Liga season.

Ex-Real Madrid striker Borja Mayoral was in excellent form until March 2024. He impressed onlookers with his movement, link-up play, and razor-sharp shots, bagging 15 goals in 27 appearances in La Liga. Unfortunately, the Spaniard suffered a Meniscus injury in the 3-3 draw with UD Las Palmas on March 2, which has ruled him out for the remainder of the 2023-24 campaign.

Before his season-ending injury, Mayoral played 31 games for the club in all competitions, scoring 17 times and providing an assist.

#4 Alexander Sorloth (Villarreal CF): 15 Goals
