Golden Boot hopeful
Ruud Van Nistelrooy will win the award if he manages 26 goals in La Liga

If our calculations are right, he's just 5 goals off the mark. The Real Madrid striker could win the 2006-07 Golden Boot accolade if he maintains his scoring spell in the 4 remaining matchdays. Rudd Van Nistelrooy has tallied six goals in the last four matches. The Brazilian Afonso Alves, forward for Eredivise side SC Heerenveen, currently sits at the top of the table with 34 goals in the Dutch league, which finished just recently. Alves has a total of 51 points as goals in the less powerful European leagues are worth 1.5 points each versus the 2-point goals of the championships of Spain, Italy, England, and Germany.
