Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah’s performance has continued to improve, as he is now the second top scorer in Europe, ahead of Lionel Messi, who scored 29 goals, and Robert Lewandowski with 27 goals.
In 32 matches, the Egyptian star has scored 30 goals, the last of which from the home match against Bournemouth on Saturday, leading Liverpool to a 3-0 win.
The 25-year-old player, who figures among the world best footballers, is making new achievements as he is the first African player to exceed 30 goals on the English field.
As for the Golden Ball holder, Cristiano Ronaldo is enduring his worst season in La Liga since joining in 2009, currently ranked 9th in Europe with 23 goals in over 32 matches.
As the most expensive player in history and a Barcelona star for the past 4 seasons, Neymar Junior is currently ranked outside of the top 10 scorers in Europe, ranked 13th with only 20 goals this past season with Paris Saint-Germain. Though the Brazilian attacker has lit up the Ligue 1 with his skills and dribbling, he needs to up his goal count.
However, in the Champions League, Ronaldo remains the irresistible leader; with 15 goals, the Portuguese maintains 7-goal advantage over Wissam ben Yedder, who plays for Sevilla. Mohamed Salah and his teammate Roberto Firmino have also scored 8 goals each.
As for Neymar and Messi, they have both scored 6 goals each, coming in at 9th and 10th respectively.
Despite his dicey season, the Champions League golden shoe is certainly in Ronaldo’s favor, his second consecutive golden shoe and fifth overall.
