Bayern Munich moved 10 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga table with an emphatic 5-0 victory over Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday evening.
It seems nothing will stop the Bavarians from claiming their eight consecutive league title now.
There’s certainly no stopping Robert Lewandowski this season.
The Polish striker bagged another two goals to take his tally to 29 goals in 27 Bundesliga appearances.
But where does that put him in the European Golden Shoe rankings?
The European Golden Shoe does what it says on the tin - a Golden Boot for those playing in Europe. Goals in the top five leagues are worth two points, league six to 21 are worth 1.5 points while goals in the remaining leagues are worth one point.
Let’s take a look at the top 20 as things stand:
20 | Alexander Sörloth | Goals: 19 | Points: 28.5
19 | Danny Ings | Goals: 15 | Points: 30
18 | Josip Ilicic | Goals: 15 | Points: 30
17 | Erik Sorga | Goals: 31 | Points: 31
16 | Moussa Dembélé | Goals: 16 | Points: 32
15 | Mohamed Salah | Goals: 16 | Points: 32
14 | Joao Pedro | Goals: 16 | Points: 32
13 | Sergio Aguero | Goals: 16 | Points: 32
12 | Shon Weissman | Goals: 22 | Points: 33
11 | Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang | Goals: 17 | Points: 34
10 | Romelu Lukaku | Goals: 17 | Points: 34
9 | Wissam Ben Yedder | Goals: 18 | Points: 36
8 | Kylian Mbappe | Goals: 18 | Points: 36
7 | Jamie Vardy | Goals: 19 | Points: 38
6 | Lionel Messi | Goals: 19 | Points: 38
5 | Cristiano Ronaldo | Goals: 21 | Points: 42
4 | Erling Haaland | Goals: 26 | Points: 44
3 | Timo Werner | Goals: 24 | Points: 48
2 | Ciro Immobile | Goals: 27 | Points: 54
1 | Robert Lewandowski | Goals: 29 | Points: 58
So, Lewandowski leads the way with 58 points to his name. Of course, he’s had the advantage of playing a few extra games than his rivals with the Bundesliga returning before other major European leagues.
But who could catch him?
Well, if Immobile hits the ground running when Serie A returns then he can close the two-goal gap. But it seems fellow Bundesliga strikers Werner and Haaland are now too far back to catch Lewandowski.
Then come Ronaldo and Messi. With 12 matches still to play, there’s every chance Cristiano can bag another 20 points or so. Meanwhile, Messi has one fewer match to catch Lewandowski but you certainly wouldn’t bet against the Argentine picking up the award for a fourth consecutive season.
