Written by Olaleye Oluwadamilola

Artem Dovbyk’s remarkable debut season in Spanish football reaches new heights as he secures the Pichichi Trophy, awarded to La Liga’s top scorer after playing a pivotal role in securing Girona’s historic Champions League qualification.

More Details

Dovbyk’s hat-trick against Granada on Friday propelled him past Alexander Sorloth in the Pichichi race. Dovbyk now sits at 24 goals, while Sorloth remains at 23. Villarreal’s Sorloth could have regained the lead with a brace against Osasuna on Saturday, but he was unable to find the net.

Adding to his disappointment, Sorloth suffered an injury just 17 minutes into the Osasuna match, dashing his hopes of claiming the Pichichi.

This effectively hands the Pichichi Trophy to Dovbyk. While Jude Bellingham theoretically remains in contention, he would need an improbable six goals for Real Madrid against Real Betis tonight.

Meanwhile…

Barcelona’s summer transfer window is expected to be significantly shaped by the imminent arrival of Hansi Flick as their new manager.

Following Xavi Hernandez’s departure, Flick is reportedly set to be announced as his replacement in the coming days. With a new manager comes a new vision, and Flick is wasting no time in shaping his approach.

A key part of this strategy involves assembling his ideal backroom staff, likely as part of a broader agreement with the club.

Looking ahead to the 2024/25 season, Flick will also be tasked with strengthening the squad. While financial constraints remain, Flick has reportedly identified Bayer Leverkusen winger Exequiel Palacios as a target following his impressive performance in their Bundesliga title win.

Palacios is just one name that could emerge as Barcelona plots its course under a new manager. The coming days and weeks will likely see a flurry of activity as Flick puts his stamp on the Camp Nou team.
