Polish Robert Lewandowski strengthened his lead in the Golden Shoe ranking as the best scorer in the European leagues, after scoring a brace during Bayern Munich’s 5-1 victory over Cologne in the German League.
Lewandowski raised his goal tally to 28 and from points to 56 points.
Maxim Skavic, the Belarusian Bati striker, came in second place, with 27 goals (40.5 points), but he could not increase his goal-scoring score after the curtain fell on the Belarusian League.
The Argentine duo, Lionel Messi, Barcelona’s star and top scorer in the Spanish League, and Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus star and top scorer in the Italian league, advanced to third place with Portuguese Andre Silva, Frankfurt striker, and Lewandowski in the German league.
The trio scored a goal for each of them in the weekend’s matches, to raise their tally to 19 goals and 38 points.
French Kylian Mbappe, the star of Paris Saint-Germain and the top scorer in the French League, also advanced to seventh place with the Belgian Romelu Lukaku, the Inter Milan striker, with 36 points from 18 goals.
On the other hand, Egyptian Mohamed Salah, Liverpool striker and top scorer in the English Premier League, retreated to 12th place, after he fasted on scoring during the match in which the “Reds” won against Sheffield United, on Sunday, to freeze the balance of the Egyptian Pharaoh at 17 goals (34 points) .
It is reported that the European Golden Shoe points are calculated as follows:
For the five major leagues (Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Italy), the number of goals is multiplied by 2.
For the leagues ranked from 6 to 22: the number of goals is multiplied by 1.5.
For the rest of the leagues: the number of points equals the number of goals.
It should be noted that Lazio striker, Italian international Ciro Immobile, won the Golden Boot award last season.
