Real Madrid’s defeat to Valencia during midweek has thrown open the title race in La Liga. This game week, with some key fixtures at the top end of the league, has the potential of shaping up the direction of the title race in the weeks to come.
Real Madrid and Barcelona both have tricky away fixtures this week as Barcelona will travel to Atletico Madrid on Saturday while Real Madrid will head to Villarreal a day later.
We have the same suspects from the top two clubs at the top end of our list. Let’s take a look at the top five La Liga strikers for game week 24.
1. Luis Suarez – Barcelona
The Uruguayan striker continues to top our list with 83 points. He has scored 18 goals and provided eight assists in 21 league appearances this season. At 18m, he is slightly cheaper than the next two names on our list. Suarez has consistently been among the points for last five weeks.
P/P ratio: 4.6
2. Lionel Messi – Barcelona
Lionel Messi is not far behind his strike partner at 81 points. However, he is the joint-most expensive player in our fantasy league at 22m. He is currently leading the La Liga Golden Boot race with 19 goals. However, he has only provided four assists this season. The game against Atletico is a must-win from Barcelona and a lot will be riding on the Argentinean.
P/P ratio: 3.9
3. Cristiano Ronaldo – Real Madrid
The Real Madrid star, along with Messi, is the most expensive player at 22m but he lags behind the top two quite a bit in terms of points. In his 18 appearances, this season, he has picked up 65 points. He has 15 goals and three assists to his name this season. Ronaldo was on target in his side’s 2-1 defeat to Valencia during midweek.
P/P ratio: 3.1
4. Kevin Gameiro – Atletico Madrid
The French striker has made his way in to our list on the back of his hat-trick in the 4-1 win against Sporting Gijon last game week. Gameiro has started only 15 league games this season, but he has a decent tally of nine goals and five assists. He is also quite cheap in the transfer market at 6.5m.
P/P ratio: 8.3
5. Iago Aspas – Celta Vigo
The Celta Vigo striker is the cheapest player on our list at 4.5m. He has consistently delivered this season and has 12 goals and three assists to show for his efforts. His point tally of 48 puts him on equal footing with Gameiro.
P/P ratio: 11.6
