Continue reading below to know more about the Golden Boot 2020 La Liga predictions.
Who is Likely to Be Top Scorer of Premier League?
This is a very close competition between the usual candidates, Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has a solid performance of 22 goals, just one behind Leicester’s Jamie Vardy who won the award for the first-time last year. Aubameyang has been performing consistently since arriving the Emirates from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018, scoring ten goals in 13 appearances on the second-half of the season is a good sign that there are more exciting performance to be expect.
Race to Be the Top Scorer of La Liga 2019-2020
At the time the coronavirus pandemic halts the Santander League, 27 dates had been played. During that time, the chart is led by the seven-time Golden Boot holder, Leo Messi with 19 goals who are also one of the highest paid players. Real Madrid's striker Karim Benzema followed him with 14. Then, came several players with a parallel score of 11. Barça player Luis Suárez, Lucas, from Alavés, Gerard, from Villarreal, and Roger, from Levante. We should take note that on the match day 25, with the game against Eibar, Messi scored a fantastic number of 4 goals, putting himself in a safe position in front of Benzema. As a matter of fact, with 11 more games to go, this could be an extremely difficult task to save for the Real Madrid striker Benzema.
If this is the case, the battle to the top scorer of La Liga seems to just focus on two players who are Messi and Benzema. If we do a statistic review of both soccer players on their performance, we will notice that Messi has a score rate of 0.90 goals for every 90 minutes while Benzema only have 0.57 goals for every 90 minutes. With these goal averages, we could estimate the number of goals at the end of the season. Hence, Messi would probably reach a goal number of 29 assuming that he takes no rest and play for all the remaining matches for Barcelona and Benzema will have a goal number around 20.
The Final Battle for The Golden Boot
The league’s few weeks of hiatus will bring some unexpected turns into our projections. Star injured players will return back on the field. One of the examples is Luis Suarez in FC Barcelona, he coming back in the field along with Messi meaning there’s more offensive power and more goals for Messi, or the other way round. Barcelona’s Uruguayan striker could dilute the scoring power of Messi.
After all these projections, we will still need to wait for the 2019-2020 La Liga to resume to see if all these assumptions will come true. Our guess is that Lionel Messi will still remain the top scorer of La Liga and the holder of the Golden Boot.BACK
