Nominees for the 'Best Striker in the 2013-14 Liga BBVA' Award

Cristiano Ronaldo, Diego Costa and Carlos Vela are the three players shortlisted for this prize, whose winner will be announced at the '2014 LFP Awards Ceremony'.

Football is all about finding the net and three players in particular did that better than anyone else in their respective teams last season, leading their clubs to victory and, in some cases, various titles throughout the year. Cristiano Ronaldo, Diego Costa and Carlos Vela are the three players nominated for 'Best Striker in the 2013-14 Liga BBVA' at the '2014 LFP Awards Ceremony' on 27 October, which will be broadcast on La Sexta (22:30).

Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo was the top goal-scorer last season. His 31 goals in 30 Liga BBVA matches prove that he is the driving force in the Whites’ front line, averaging more than one goal per match (1.03), making him the top goal-scorer in the 2013/14 season. In addition, Ronaldo had more shots on goal than any other player with 216, and he has scored at least 30 goals in the last four seasons.

When it came to goal-scoring, Diego Costa did the job for Atlético Madrid last year. With a game based on determination and pride, the Spain international scored 27 goals in 35 matches in the shirt of the current Liga BBVA champions, averaging 0.77 per match played. His many goals stole the headlines on countless occasions and caught the attention of the football world. A new goal-machine had been discovered in the Liga BBVA.

Real Sociedad's last season in the Liga BBVA is also represented at the '2014 LFP Awards Ceremony' with the nomination of Carlos Vela. The Mexican striker exploded onto the scene last season with the Basque outfit, scoring 16 goals in 37 matches to record his best goal-scoring season since he came to Spanish football. Vela's prodigious pace and electricity make him one of the most dangerous strikers in Spanish football.
