Karim Benzema

Karim Benzema maintained his lead in the Pichichi race on Saturday night with another brace.

This season’s contest for La Liga’s top scorer, to be honest, has been a one-sided affair.

Benzema took an early lead and, despite a recent drought – at least by his standards – the Frenchman has continued to expand his lead.

He scored twice in a single game for the sixth time this season in club football alone on Saturday night.

This type of form has given him a solid bet to win the Pichichi this season, but teammate Vinicius Junior is not taking anything for granted.

The Brazilian also scored twice on Saturday, his fourth brace of the season, propelling him back into second place on the all-time top scorer list.

Here are the top eight.

  • Karim Benzema – 17
  • Vinicius Junior – 12
  • Juanmi – 11
  • Iago Aspas, Joselu – 10
  • Raul de Tomas – 9
  • Gerard Moreno, Memphis Depay – 8
