Act. a las 12:20


There are four days left before LaLiga lowers the curtain definitively this season. The League title has already been awarded and dyed with Barça for the 27th time in the history of FC Barcelona. Despite already having secured first place, the squad led by Xavi Hernández still has some challenges ahead. One of them, securing the Pichichi Trophy for Robert Lewandowski.

The Polish striker has 21 goals, a figure that places him at the top of the ranking of top scorers in the domestic competition. He chases you from behind Karim Benzema, with 17 goals; in addition to Joselu (15), Enes Unal (14) o Borja Iglesias, Muriqi, Taty Castellanos, Griezmann y Morata (13). For Real Madrid, once eliminated from the Champions League and with no chance of winning the League, the only incentive ahead is for their French striker to beat ‘Lewy’.

Lewandowski has landed on his feet at the Spotify Camp Nou. In his first season as a blaugrana, he has been one of the pillars of Barça’s league champions, leading a rebuilding team on and off the pitch. If his Pichichi is consumed he will take over from Hans Krankl (1978/79), quini (1980/81), Romário (1993/94) y Ronaldo (1996/97) that They achieved this distinction in their first season as Barça players.

It will also be the 20th time that the Pichichi Trophy has fallen into the hands of a Barça player. He absolute record holds it Leo Messi, with eight awardsfollowed by Enrique Castro ‘Quini’ (2); in addition to mariano martin, Cesar Rodriguez, Cayetano Ré, Carlos Rexach, Hans Krankl, Romário, Ronaldo, Samuel Eto’o y Luis Suarez -all with a Pichichi-.

His spectacular start to the season with Barça bears a large part of the responsibility for the feat he is about to achieve. He saw the goal 13 times during the first 12 league days. Some figures that quickly placed him in the highest rank of this particular classification and leaving him a sufficiently comfortable mattress to continue leading it after the World Cup break, where he has ‘wet’ eight times in the 16 games in which he has dressed in short.

Another one to the collection

Barça’s ‘9’ is more than used to receiving individual distinctions. In fact, it would be Eighth time that he has received an award for the top scorer in a League, achieving it in the previous seven as a Bundesliga player and the last five -which could be six- consecutively.

In it Borussia Dortmund the season 2013/14 (20 goals) and in the Bayern Munich the courses 2015/16 (30), 2017/18 (29), 2018/19 (22), 2019/20 (34), 2020/21 (41) y 2021/22 (35). To them, we must also add the award to top scorer in the Champions League during the 2019/20 campaign, with 15 goalsachieving the third best mark in the history of the competition.

Therefore, four rivals ahead (Real Sociedad, Valladolid, Mallorca and Celta de Vigo) to swell their records this season: 31 goals and seven assists in 41 games.
