Race for Pichichi: Real Madrid stars lead the way, Depay & Luiz Suarez play catchup

In the race for Pichichi, Vinicius Junior is catching close to his Real Madrid partner, Karim Benzema.

In the battle to finish as La Liga's top scorer, Benzema jumped out to an early lead, but his form has slowed in recent weeks.

The Frenchman has maintained his excellent form, which has helped Real Madrid climb to the top of the table, but he has only scored one goal in Los Blancos' last five games, with Carlo Ancelotti resting his star man in one of them.

Overall, Benzema has an outstanding 10 goals in 12 league matches, and he remains the top scorer in the league. However, as his scoring pace has slowed, Vinicius has crept up on him, and now, the Brazilian has three goals in three games this season, putting him two goals behind Benzema.

Outside the Bernabeu, there is also pressure, with Memphis Depay, Raul de Tomas, and Luis Suarez all having seven goals.

After matchday 14, Mikel Oyarzabal and Joselu are the next closest with six goals each.
