Europe's Golden Shoe frontrunners (1)

Published 2 Comments

It's been another entertaining week of action in Europe's top five divisions, with hat-tricks aplenty and goals galore.

And, it's also shaken things up in the race to be the top scorer on the continent, with one familiar face pulling away at the top of the standings.

With focus on the Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, Serie 'A' and the Bundesliga, a few in-form players have missed out on the list, and deserve an honourable mention at least.

Alfred Finnbogason has 14 goals in 11 games for Heerenveen in the Eredivisie, whilst Artem Dzyuba has gone one better in Russia with 12 goals in 15 games.

But, with respect to those two, the lower leagues rarely have enough to win the coveted top goalscorer award in Europe, because of UEFA's grading system. A goal in either of those leagues is worth 1.5 points, whilst goals in the 'big five' are worth two.

So, now that's over, we'll get straight down to goalscoring business.
