European Golden Shoe: Robert Lewandowski moves ten goals ahead of Lionel Messi


Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski looks poised to for a record-breaking season as he threatens to run clear in the European Golden Shoe race - here are the top 10 scorers this season.

Lewandowski, 31, has arguably developed into the best number 9 in world football as continues his scintillating form in the Bundesliga since their return from the coronavirus enforced suspension.

With Serie A, LaLiga and the Premier League all set to return this month, the Bayern ace has taken his overall tally to 29 goals after his brace against Fortuna Dusseldorf in an emphatic 5-0 thumping.

The Poland international also reached 43 strikes across all competitions, which equals his personal best-ever tally he achieved in the 2016/17 campaign.

Having achieved the 40-goal milestone in five consecutive seasons, Lewandowski is now taking aim at a career first Golden Shoe, a third consecutive Bundesliga top scorer title and the all-time single-season goal record of 40 set by Gerd Muller in 1972.

RB Salzburg's Timo Werner and Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Erling Haaland both failed to find the net over the weekend in the memorable weekend for the Bayern ace.

But with the resumption of Serie A on 20 June, the Premier League on the 17th and LaLiga on the 11th, the likes of Ciro Immobile, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Jamie Vardy will all be within a chance to challenge for the coveted title.

Only Kylian Mbappe and Wissam Ben Yedder will be unable to compete with 2019/20 Ligue 1 season being called off with Paris Saint-Germain declared champions.
