With regards to UEFA's league coefficient over the past five seasons, the La Liga is the most competitive league in Europe. Spain's rich footballing culture in Europe has been prevalent for a long time now, as the country's clubs have produced the most wins in European competitions.
The La Liga was founded in 1929, as clubs from across the nation competed to be crowned Spanish and European champions. Players from around the world flocked to compete in Spain's top clubs, eager to make an impact in a big league.
A number of players have failed to make their mark, while others created lasting memories. We take a look at five of the top active goalscorers in the league who are currently plying their trade in Spain's top flight.
#5 Antonie Griezmann (102 goals in 257 appearances)
French superstar and Atletico Madrid forward, Antoine Griezmann began his professional career in Spain with Real Sociedad in 2009. After five seasons with the club, the Frenchman moved away to Atletico Madrid in 2014, as he began to establish himself as a top quality player, putting in outstanding displays at the highest level of the game.
Around the same time, the flamboyant striker earned his first national team call-up with France in 2014, taking no time to establish himself as a French regular in the starting eleven.
Having made over 250 appearances in the Spanish league for Sociedad and Atletico Madrid, Greizmann has notched a staggering 102 goals. He sits in fifth on the chart of active La Liga goalscorers, with a lot of ground to make if he has to break into the all-time chart.
However, the 26-year-old Frenchman is a tricky customer with great ability and skill capable of performing at greater heights, with all-time records in his sight, for club and country.
