Artem Dovbyk and Borja Mayoral put pressure on Bellingham in the fight for the 'Pichichi'


The Ukrainian forward of Girona FC Artem Dovbyk scored a hat-trick against Sevilla FC this Sunday in the 5-1 victory of Míchel's team in Montilivi, goals that help the striker of the Catalan team to place himself at the top of the LaLiga EA Sports scoring table, equaling Real Madrid player Jude Bellingham with 14 goals.

Artem Dovbyk is, in his first season in LaLiga, one of the great revelations of the championship. The 26-year-old striker is Girona's offensive reference, and this weekend he once again showed that, despite not having scored in the previous three days, he has not lost his scoring instinct.

Against Sevilla he scored the second fastest hat-trick in LaLiga this season, three goals in six minutes and 33 seconds, only surpassed by Luis Suárez against Granada (five minutes and 24 seconds).

A stellar performance from Dovbyk that places him at the top of the LaLiga EA Sports 2023-24 top scorers table. After his goals, the Ukrainian now has 14 goals so far in the League, the same as the Englishman Jude Bellingham, with whom he shares scoring figures. Of course, the Ukraine international has participated in more goals for his team thanks to the five assists he has added in the competition.

And the Girona '9' is showing that he can match his high scoring figures in the Ukrainian Dnipro-1 last season, a year in which he scored 24 in 30 games in the Ukrainian League. Furthermore, Dovbyk is the second player who has made the most shots on goal in the League with 44, only behind Real Madrid's Rodrygo (45). Data that makes the Girona striker's effectiveness 32%.


A fight for the 'Pichichi' in which the Englishman Jude Bellingham continues to be at the forefront after the penalty goal he scored against Almería. In total, his scoring figure in the League now stands at 14 goals, which also means continuing to increase his highest scoring record in the five major Leagues.

Furthermore, the Madrid '5' also participated in the third white goal, providing the assist to Dani Carvajal. A goal with which he opens the scoring in 2024, after being immersed in his worst streak of games without scoring since he arrived at Real Madrid with five – all competitions.

Finally, the third placed in the fight for the LaLiga EA Sports top scorer trophy is Borja Mayoral. The Madrid striker, who had not scored in any of the first three games of 2024, scored again against Osasuna. Now there are 13 goals he has accumulated in his personal account, just one less than Bellingham and Dovbyk, so he continues in the fight for the 'Pichichi', also leading the race to be the top national scorer in LaLiga, leading by one goal to Álvaro Morata, from Atlético de Madrid.
