Spanish football top scorers

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

this page details Spanish football top scorers. It is based on official records provided by the organizing body Liga de Fútbol Profesional and differ from the unofficial Pichichi award which is based on subjective criteria by the Spanish newspaper Diario Marca. Since in Spain there have never existed any official recognition of a league top scorer, the data is entirely based on official match reports provided by LFP from their historical database as no works based on that have ever been published. This data should be taken for what it is and is disputed in several instances by statistical works on Spanish football, one of whom is listed under literature.

One example would be the year 1932 when according to official match reports the top scorer that season was Agustín Sauto Arana with 13 goals while independent research by several statistical authors on Spanish football instead show that year the top scorer was Guillermo Gorostiza with 12 goals even though he only scored 9 according to official match reports. The historical ranking further down on this page is compiled from goal scoring records based on the official match reports, as such it is neither 100% accurate nor the definite goal scoring count as for example César Rodríguez Álvarez is considered to have scored 192 goals for FC Barcelona in the Spanish League according to LFP while independent research by the club itself only verify 190 goals.
