While European powerhouses are busy in a hot battle as they chase glory in the coveted tournament, there is also an intense competition for the Champions League Golden Shoe among elite attackers from various divisions across the continent, including the La Liga.
The Spanish top flight produced some of the finest finishers the competition witnessed during the past few years, with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar Junior, David Villa, Gonzalo Higuain, and Alexis Sanchez all making names for themselves in Europe while representing Spanish clubs during the past decade.
Although these superstars have left the LaLiga in search of green pasture elsewhere, the division still possesses other amazing attackers who are capable of competing for the Champions League Golden Shoe during the term. Below, we take a look at 4 of them.

With such an explosive start, the Welshman has put himself among the few attackers who could put up a fight for the coveted Champions League Golden Shoe during the term.
