The race for the Pichichi top scorer in LaLiga has already begun in earnest with three of the top four scorers in Spain – Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann – facing off against each other in the Camp Nou tonight.
In just four match days, the big guns have already deposited handsomely in their accounts and will all want to star in the first big test of the season for either side.
Messi and Suarez already know what it’s like to lift the award for most goals in a season, but Griezmann has the tools to be a genuine contender this season.
Despite being suspended at the start of the campaign, the Frenchman has scored a double in his last two games, bringing him level with Barcelona’s hit men.
A fourth striker also shares the podium at this stage, Real Betis’ Ruben Castro.
Today, we will see who from the Argentine, Uruguayan or Frenchman will prevail and emerge as the standalone Pichichi candidate.
