La Liga is back, and with it our "Pichichi" top goalscorers section. Usually at this time of year the early leaders are from those clubs who have played in some sort of European competition, but with the league programme starting early this season, those matches are yet to come. However last year's "Pichichi" Messi has already got off the mark with two goals in Barcelona's 5-1 win over Real Sociedad, and he leads our chart together with three other players who scored twice in the opening round of games, San José (Athletic), Molina (Betis) and Hemed (Mallorca). The only side to have played in Europe this summer was Athletic, and their new signing Isma López also features in our chart after netting two of the goals in their aggregate 4-3 win over Slaven Koprivnica.
