Pachuca striker Nicolás Ibáñez will be crowned Apertura 2022 top scorer this Sunday, with 11 goals to his name.

The Argentinian was in the starting line-up for the Tuzos in their visit to the BBVA Stadium to face Rayados and, although he didn’t score, his closest pursuers also failed to score, leaving the way clear to become this season’s top scorer in Liga MX.

Henry Martín, with 10 goals, was Ibañez’s closest rival in the race to be the tournament’s top scorer, but the Yucatecan failed to score on Friday against Puebla.

Ibáñez’s closest challengers in the scoring charts were Martín Barragán (Puebla) and Abel Hernández (San Luis), both on eight goals, but both failed to score this weekend.

Jean Meneses (Toluca) and Lucas Di Yorio (León), both with seven goals, will play their last regular season match on Sunday, but it is almost impossible for them to catch Ibañez, making the Pachuca striker’s goal-scoring title imminent.
