La Liga returned from the winter break last weekend. Barcelona capitalized on failures by their title rivals to move five points clear at the top of the table. Real Madrid needs a new inspiration because they lost at home against Real Sociedad to remain 10 points behind the Catalans. Atletico Madrid drew 1-1 away against Sevilla to stay second. Today, we want to look at six stars leading the Golden Boot race in Spanish La Liga this season.

6. Borja Iglesias- 9 Goals (2 Assists)

The hottest young striker in Spain right now is no doubt RCD Espanyol attacker, Borja Iglesias. The 25-year-old will be a target for big teams if he continues scoring goals at the current rate. He has so far scored 9 goals and assisted 2 more in only 18 matches. Luis Enrique might need to take him on board and drop Alvaro Morata who is currently firing blanks for club and country.

5. Wissam Ben Yedder- 9 Goals (5 Assists)

Sevilla forward Wissam Ben Yedder was on target on Sunday against Atletico Madrid to take his season tally to 9 goals and 5 assists. The forward is always in the right place to score for his team. He has helped his team remain third on the table with 33 points.

4. Iago Aspas- 10 Goals (2 Assist)

Liverpool flop Iago Aspas continues to carry Celta Vigo on his back in La Liga. This season, he has scored 10 goals and assisted two more in 18 matches. His club form is so good that Luis Enrique could not ignore him anymore. He is now playing regularly for Spain.
