The race for the prestigious Pinichi award, while entertaining to follow, has taken on a whole new level of excitement over the past few seasons.
Ever since Real Madrid commenced their second Galacticos era and began a furious arms race with Barcelona for Spanish and European dominance, the level of football exhibited by the two teams has been record breaking and nothing short of amazing.

However, one thing is certain, there will be goals aplenty in La Liga this season, and here's how I see the race for the Pichichi unfolding.
