Without knowing when their respective leagues will be able to resume, up to four Barcelona players currently lead the top scorer ranking in their respective leagues. Leo Messi, Jennifer Hermoso, Adolfo Fernández and Pablo Álvarez have been lethal in front of goal and all are current Pichichi's for their division.
Messi currently has 19 goals in the LaLiga, five more than his main pursuer, Karim Benzema, who is second with 14. The Argentine, who is also the player with the most assists (12), has won a total of six Pichichis (2009/10, 2011/12, 2012/13, 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19) and is, along with Zarra, the player who has the most in history. Were he to win this new edition, he will become the one player with the most Pichichis ever. It should be noted that Luis Suárez, despite being injured since January, is third with 11 goals.
As for Jennifer Hermoso, she has 23 goals in just 19 Iberdrola League games. The Madrid-born forward, who was also Pichichi last year for Atlético Madrid and in the 2015/16 and 2016/17 campaigns with Barça, has an average of more than one goal per game this season. The second top scorer is also a blaugrana: Asisat Oshoala, with 20 goals. A lethal pairing.
Adolfo Fernández is top scorer in LNFS. The Catalan player has a total of 26 goals in 23 games this season in the league, more than any other player. He's closely followed by Chino (Valdepeñas) with 24 and Paradynski (El Pozo Murcia) with 23. Injuries to Ferrao and Esquerdinha has seen Fernández take charge of goalscoring duties, and he could win his first Pichichi at the end of this campaign, breaking Ferrao's hold on the award (he's won it for the last three seasons).
Finally, the other blaugrana who leads the scoring rankings is Pablo Álvarez. Barça's roller hockey player - the highest scorer in the history of the OK League and who reached 500 goals this year - is the league's top scorer with 38 goals in 25 games, four more than Marc Grau of Liceo, who is second. In third position there is a three-way tie: Joao Rodrigues and Pau Bargalló have 32, the same as Alex Rodriguez of Reus. We could end up seeing the fourth Pichichi for the Argentine, who already won it in 2009/10 with Liceo (43 goals), as well as in 2013/14 and 2018/19 with Barça (56 and 48 goals).
Pablo Álvarez podria guanyar el seu quart Pitxitxi, el tercer com a blaugrana i segon consecutiu
With respect to the other professional sports, Mirotic is the fourth top scorer in the ACB with 400 points, Aleix Gómez is the top scorer for Barcelona in the Asobal League with 78 goals and Monchu is the top scorer for Barça B with eight goals.
