Lewandowski and the ‘cheapest’ pichichi since Diego Tristán

The last day of the league has certified Valladolid’s relegation to the silver division and has closed the European places with Osasuna slipping into seventh place that entitles them to the Conference League. With a Barça champion since matchday 34 and Lewandowski pichichichi in solitary during almost the entire tournament, it was only necessary to know the figures. The blaugrana closed the campaign with 88 points after the defeat against Celta and the Pole finished with 23 goals. The cheapest top scorer since the 2001-02 season, in which Diego Tristán scored 21 goals with Deportivo de la Coruña.

The Pole started the season launched on the scorer’s table and with numbers reminiscent of the days of Cristiano and Messi. In the first 12 days, Lewandowski saw the door 13 times. Since then, the Blaugrana striker’s performance has plummeted and he has scored 10 goals in the last 22 games. 23 goals and seven assists in 34 games, 0’67 goals per game.

Although the beginning of Lewandowski placed him in figures from another era in the positive, his final stretch of the season has confirmed the situation, but in the negative. Since the penultimate top scorer in Spain, Diego Tristán lifted the trophy with 21 goals, such a low figure was never seen in LaLiga. To find the next lowest season after Tristán’s, you have to go back 11 more years. In 1990-91, Emilio Butragueño lifted the trophy with 19 goals. The 2022-23 campaign completes the podium of the cheapest top scorers of the last 32 years.

Even so, the Pole has not had a competitor in the race for the pichichi. The discreet last year of Benzema, 19 goals, and the meritorious performances of Joselu Mato, 16, and Borja Iglesias and Antoine Griezmann have not served to disturb the candidacy of the former Bayern Munich striker.
