La Liga: top 10 scorers in the Spanish football league 2019/2020

FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi topped the top scorers list of the Spanish football league 'La Liga' in the 2019/2020 season. With a total of 25 goals, the Argentine won the so called "Pichichi" title. Real Madrid's Karim Benzema won the second position on the list with 21 goals. During the season, the most common result was 1-1, which was registered on 49 occasions.

Top scorers, top earners

Barcelona and Real Madrid not only provided the top scorers, they also topped the global list of best paid players. The Catalan footbal club also led the list of highest salaries per player in La Liga at 13.76 million U.S. dollars in 2017/18. Real Madrid ranked second, with its average player earning approximately 10.64 million U.S. dollars that year.

Top scorers, but not necessarily top attendances

Despite this, the share of the population that went to a football match in Spain’s top football competition has been in decline in the past years. Football attendance experienced a downward trend, peaking in 1996 at nearly 10 percent and reaching its lowest point in 2015 at 3.7 percent. In 2018, 4.2 percent of the Spanish population enjoyed a live football match. Broadcast football games, however, do still show up in the audience rankings.
