Lewandowski, Ronaldo, Messi: Who has the best mins-per-goal record in 2021?

Robert Lewandowski, you're ridiculous!

Robert Lewandowski is the best striker on the planet right now.

In the eyes of many, the Bayern Munich man is also the finest player among all those operating in the sport at this current time and deserving of the 2021 Ballon d'Or.

When you look at the stats, it's hard to disagree with that opinion.

So far in 2021, no footballer in Europe has scored more goals than Lewandowski, the Polish icon netting an astonishing 48 across all club competitions this year.

That total really is mind-boggling and what makes it even better is the rate at which the enormous tally of goals has been scored at.

Lewandowski possesses comfortably the best minutes-per-goal ratio among players in Europe's top 10 leagues in 2021.

And if you want to see just how far ahead he is of the rest, check out the top 30 on Transfermarkt in full below.

Remember, goals from league, domestic cup and continental cup action have all been taken into account here.

Lewandowski, we're not worthy!

Rather surprisingly, the Pole's Bayern colleague Choupo-Moting is currently second-best in terms of minutes-per-goal in 2021. Fair play, Eric.

Messi is well clear of eternal rival Ronaldo at the time of writing, while Bale features in the top five thanks to his rather underrated loan spell at Tottenham in the first half of the year.

As for Haaland, well, it's just become normal to see superhuman-like numbers next to the 21-year-old's name to be honest.
