Top Contenders for the La Liga Golden Boot: March 2019
- We are assessing the top candidates in the race to be crowned the top scorer of La Liga.
#9 Borja Iglesias (Spain, Espanyol)
Goals Scored - 11
The Spaniard just makes the cut among the top ten contenders thanks to a relatively better performance in recent times. Iglesias scored just 1 goal in 4 games in February – against Rayo Vallecano in a 2-1 win at home – to ignite a huge scramble for the last two spots. He scored another goal this weekend against Real Valladolid, helping his club earn a valuable 3-1 win at home.
Iglesias now has 11 goals from 26 games – the same as Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema - but he is ranked lower due to slightly inferior minutes per goal ratio. The Spaniard is averaging a goal every 194 minutes played and has registered 53 shots on goal, 27 of which have been on target.
At the start of March, Borja Iglesias is 9th among the top contenders for the La Liga Golden Boot.
