With the La Liga season back in full swing after a long-extended summer due to the global pandemic caused by Covid-19 and also with a whirlwind of transfers and rumours all over the shop, it’s nice to get back to some normality and have football back on our big screens. With the uncertainty in the world currently, we investigate below if this will be the case when it comes to who will be the golden boot winner of La Liga this season.
Of course, when we are talking about goalscoring records and golden boots then there is no one more familiar with them than Lionel Messi, he is currently priced at 5/4 on this list of betting sites. Messi is of course a genius and a legend in the La Liga league and will be wanting to claim this golden boot more than ever. However, with Barcelona’s rocky start with them currently sitting in 12th and without a win in 4 games, including Messi not scoring from open play this year, this year might be the year in which he is challenged for this.
Next on our list is that of Real Madrid number 9 Karim Benzema who is second favourite when it comes to the golden boot priced at 5/1. This might look like a healthy bet for many with the Frenchman already top of the goalscoring league with 5 goals this campaign and with the form that Madrid are displaying in the league it’s hard to look past Benzema.

Just behind Benzema in terms of odds and goals is that of Luis Suarez who left Barcelona this season to join Diego Simeone at Atletico Madrid who is priced at 11/2 and has currently scored 4 goals. Although Atletico are usually known for their defensive football, Suarez might be the perfect fit for them due to the immaculate finishing and aggressive play style that he has and one that could blossom as a relationship in this season.
And finally, and a bit of an outsider when it comes to the golden boot but somewhat a certain for the future is that of Anssumane Fati who at 17-years old might be the bright spark that Barcelona need to get back into the bigtime. Having also scored 4 goals this season and priced at 12/1, if you want an outsider shout then Fati might be the one due to the electric and direct playstyle.
