Primera División de Paraguay topscorers

The following article contains a year-by-year list and statistics of football topscorers in the Primera División de Paraguay (Paraguayan First Division).

Topscorers by yearEdit

The following list only comprises the professional era and is missing data from 1906 to 1934 (amateur era).[1]

Also, since 2008 the Paraguayan football association (APF) awards two national champions per year; one for the Torneo Apertura and another for the Torneo Clausura. Therefore, the following legends are used from 2008 and on:

  • [A] = Apertura
  • [C] = Clausura
  • [O] = Overall topscorer for that year
