A dramatic change in La Liga’s top scorers dashes Bellingham’s dreams

The penultimate round of La Liga witnessed a dramatic change in the rankings of the competition’s top scorers, with the biggest loser being Jude Bellingham.

Alexander Sorloth, Villarreal striker, scored 4 goals in a way that no one expected against Real Madrid, in the match that ended in a 4-4 draw.

In this way, the Norwegian striker became the top scorer in La Liga, with a relatively comfortable margin over the closest pursuers, one round before the end of the competition.

Sorloth reached goal number 23, while Bellingham scored only 19 goals, which makes him need to score 4 goals to equal him, and 5 goals to achieve the top scorer title, when Real Madrid faces Real Betis next week.

Below we review together the ranking of the Spanish League’s top scorers, one round before the end of the competition.
