Champions League top goal scorers 2022/23: Updated golden boot rankings 2022

Champions League top goal scorers 2022/23: It’s already shaping up to be Kylian Mbappe vs. Erling Haaland for the UEFA Champions League Golden Boot.

The two young stars — Mbappe is 23 and Haaland is 22 — both scored twice in their first Champions League group match of 2022/23, leading their respective clubs to victory.

Joining him on the scoring charts is a surprising name: Shakhtar Donetsk’s Marian Shevid. The 25-year-old Ukrainian winger scored twice in Shakhtar’s win at RB Leipzig.

There are eight more matches to be played in the opening round of group matches with another Golden Boot candidate, Robert Lewandowski, starting his campaign in new Barcelona colors against Viktoria Plzen. This home match could be his best chance to score as Bayern Munich and Inter Milan are also in Barcelona’s group.

The table below is updated after each round of matches starting from the group stage. Assists are used as the first tiebreaker, and the second tiebreaker is played in the shortest number of minutes. Both top scorers conform to the tiebreakers implemented by the European governing body UEFA for the European Championship.

Champions League Golden Boot 2021/22

Karim Benzema takes the 2021-22 Champions League scoring crown. He did not score in the final against Liverpool but did enough damage in the previous knockout rounds to score 15 goals, two better than Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, but less than Cristiano Ronaldo’s single-season haul of 17. (2013/14) ).

Benzema, who also won the scoring race in La Liga with 27 goals, had a magical season in the Champions League, leading Real Madrid to the final with his goals. His three goals against Man City in the semi-final were crucial, and in the quarter-final, Benzema silenced Chelsea’s home crowd with his first league hat-trick, and then struck the winner in extra time in the second leg.
