Top 10 Goalscorers In Europe Update

By David Kappel - Feb 21, 2017 08:00 PM @kappilinho

Lionel Messi has climbed up our top goalscorers in Europe ranking, while Cristiano Ronaldo is struggling to break back into the top 10.

Messi scored both FC Barcelona's goals in their 2-1 win over Leganes and jumped up to third spot, while Ronaldo drew another blank.

The Portuguese experienced his eighth La Liga game without finding the back of the net, and remains outside the top 10 goalscorers in Europe with 14 strikes to his name.

Edinson Cavani, meanwhile, seems the hot favourite to lift this year's European Golden Shoe. The Uruguayan currently leads the race, four goals ahead of Alexandre Lacazette in second place.

Messi, Edin Dzeko and Gonzalo Higuain follow in joint third spot with 19 strikes each, while Luis Suarez sits on 18 goals.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the only African on the list, has dropped down the ranking after failing to score in his past two Bundesliga matches.

Here are the top 10 goalscorers in Europe's top five leagues:

1) Edinson Cavani (PSG) – 25 goals

2) Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon) – 21 goals

3) Lionel Messi (Barcelona) – 19 goals

4) Edin Dzeko (Roma) – 19 goals

5) Gonzalo Higuain (Juventus) – 19 goals

6) Luis Suarez (Barcelona) – 18 goals

7) Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) – 17 goals

8) Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (BVB) – 17 goals

9) Anthony Modeste (Cologne) – 17 goals

10) Andrea Belotti (Torino) – 17 goals
