European Golden Shoe 2020/21: Ronaldo, Suarez, and Silva gain ground on Lewandowski
Bayern won 1-0 versus Hertha at the weekend with the only goal of the game being scored by Kingsley Coman.Robert Lewandowski actually missed a penalty in that one and so failed to take the opportunity to add to his goalscoring tally for the season, which currently stands at 24.Even though he still holds a commanding lead, others were able to close the gap slightly, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Andre Silva, and Luis Suarez all getting on the scoresheet for their respective sides.Silva has now scored 17 for Eintracht Frankfurt this campaign, and currently represents the biggest threat to Lewandowski as the leader, even if the Portuguese forward is seven goals adrift.Genk’s Paul Onuachu still finds himself high in the standings despite the disadvantage of the competition weighting.Ronaldo, Suarez, and Kylian Mbappe have all scored 16 goals so far this season and are on 32 points.There is a talented group on 28 points which includes Erling Haaland, Romelu Lukaku, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ciro Immobile, and Wout Weghorst.Mohamed Salah scored Liverpool’s only goal of the game in the defeat versus Man City, and moves on to 15 strikes for the season.2020/21 EUROPEAN GOLDEN SHOE STANDINGS 2020/21 European Golden ShoeAt this stage of the season, the leagues that run on the calendar year – ie 2020 – inevitably get a head start but these days with the league weightings, very few are still there by the end of the traditional 2020/21 campaign. A reminder: The five elite leagues – Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1 – all carry a weighting of 2, meaning that a player will be awarded two points for every goal they score in these competitions. For the leagues ranked sixth to 30 in Uefa’s coefficients rankings goals scored are given a weighting of 1.5, and goals scored in a league outwith the top 30, goals are given a weighting of 1. Ciro Immobile won the 2019/20 European Golden Shoe, scoring 36 goals for Lazio in a tremendous Serie A season. 2020/21 EUROPEAN GOLDEN SHOE (Summer Leagues) 2020 European Golden ShoePlayerTeamGoalsPointsKasper JunkerBomo/Glimt2740.5Amahl PellegrinoKristiansund2537.5Philip ZinckernagelBodo/Glimt1928.5Christoffer NymanNorrköping1827Rauno SappinenFlora Tallinn2626Veton BerishaViking1624Jasur YakhshiboevPakhtakor Tashkent1624Astrit SelmaniVerbergs1522.5Mushaga BakengaOdds BK1522.5Moses OgbuMjallby1421Anders ChristiansenMalmo1319.5Leke JamesMolde1219.5Maksim SkavyshBATE Borisov1919This is the 2020/21 European Golden Shoe race.
