Karim Benzema won the Pichichi award last season, but there’s a lot of competition for that award this season.
With a brace against Valladolid, the star striker of Real Madrid has 7 goals in La Liga since the beginning of the season. However, he is still only 4th on the list of goalscorers in Spain’s top league.
La Liga is always filled with elite strikers and the 2022-23 campaign has seen the prolific scoring ability of Polish striker Robert Lewandowski. The star of Barcelona is still leading the scoring race with 13 goals.
There are several other contenders for the Pichichi award, like Antoine Griezmann, Vinicius Junior or lesser-known strikers like Real Betis’ Borja Iglesias, or Mallorca’s Vedat Muqiri.
It should be remembered that Benzema only returned from the injury he suffered when he went to the World Cup. The level of the French striker is undisputed. Accordingly, coach Carlo Ancelotti has reason to praise the 35-year-old player: “I find Benzema very motivated and I think you will see another version of Karim Benzema from 2023.”
