Who says end of season, says balance sheet. And in the ranking of European top scorers for the 2020/21 financial year, Robert Lewandowski finished first. Top scorer in the Bundesliga with 41 goals, the most recent this weekend against Augsburg (5-2), the Pole of Bayern Munich made history by erasing Gerd Müller’s record, which dated from 1971 / 72.
Behind the native of Warsaw, Paul Onuachu also had a huge season. The Nigerian has thus found the net 33 times in Jupiler Pro League, regular season and play-offs combined. The monster consistency of the Super Eagle (11 caps, 3 goals) may allow it to see a little higher this summer. Lionel Messi, on vacation this weekend, completes the podium with an excellent ratio of 30 goals in 35 matches.
Mbappé lighthouse at night
Remained on the bench against Bologna (1-4), Cristiano Ronaldo fails in fourth place. The Portuguese will console himself with the title of top scorer in Serie A (29 pawns) and a qualification on the wire in the Champions League with Juventus. His compatriot André Silva, very successful with Eintracht Frankfurt (28 achievements), for his part, takes a good 5th place. Special mention to Patson Daka (Salzburg) and Erling Haaland (Dortmund), authors of 27 goals in 28 games in their respective championships.
Kylian Mbappé, best fireworks in Ligue 1 with 27 achievements in the jersey of Paris SG, the most recent Sunday in Brest (0-2), finished in 8th place and the only representative of French football in this top 10. Note the 10th position for Romelu Lukaku, brilliant with Inter all season and author of his 24 goal this weekend against Udinese (5-1). Harry Kane (Tottenham), Gerard Moreno (Villarreal), Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) and Pedro Gonçalves (Sporting CP) finish, with 23 goals, at the gates of this top 10.
