The current competition of the top goal scorers of top National Leagues continues successfully. We will remind that according to regulations formally the top scorer of the National Championship of any European country can become the owner of a new Golden Boot.
But in fact, considering special conditions of scoring the points, today the first prize of the European goal-scorer can be won only by the representative of one of five top Leagues - EPL, La Liga, German Bundesliga, the Italian Series A and the French Ligue 1. Only in these championships each scored goal by Lionel Messi, Edinson Cavani or Sergio Aguero is at once multiplied by coefficient 2.00.
According to the results of the third November week-end the top 10 of main challengers for the Golden Boot 2018 is as follows:
1. Edinson Cavani (PSG) - 32 points (16 goals)
2-3. Mauro Icardi (Inter) - 30 (15)
2-3. Ciro Immobile (Lazio) - 30 (15)
4-5. Radamel Falcao (Monaco) - 26 (13)
4-5. Robert Lewandowski (Bayern) - 26 (13)
6-7. Lionel Messi (Barcelona) - 24 (12)
6-7. Paolo Dybala (Juventus) - 24 (12)
8-9. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund) - 22 (11)
8-9. Nabil Fekir (Olympique lyonnais) - 22 (11)
10-12. Mariano (Olympique lyonnais) - 20 (10)
10-12. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) - 20 (10)
10-12. Dries Mertens (Napoli) - 20 (10)
As we see, the Italian Series A is presented by the greatest number of challengers. These are the top goalscorers of Inter, Lazio, Juventus and Napoli, respectively, Mauro Icardi, Ciro Immobile, Paolo Dybala and Dries Mertens.
At the same time we are surprised by a rather low place of the top goal scorer of Liverpool and all English Premier League Mohamed Salah. And the absence in the top list of the main challengers for a new Golden Boot of the captain of Real Madrid Cristiano Ronaldo is absolutely fantastic.
However the fact remains! Today the Portuguese goalscorer can be proud only with two scored goals and the appropriate 67th place at La Liga. Naturally, with such figures Cristiano isn’t included even into TOP 100 of the challengers for a new Golden Boot.
