Robert Lewandowski currently leads the way for the European Golden Shoe after scoring a magnificent 11 goals in seven matches for Bayern so far.

However, over the weekend three players - Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Erling Haaland, and Dominic Calvert-Lewing - all closed the gap on the Polish striker by moving on to ten goals.

For the first time this season, Cristiano Ronaldo makes the list after moving on to eight for the campaign with Juventus.

At this stage of the season, the leagues that run on the calendar year - ie 2020 - inevitably get a head start but these days with the league weightings, very few are still there by the end of the traditional 2020/21 campaign.

A reminder: The five elite leagues - Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1 - all carry a weighting of 2, meaning that a player will be awarded two points for every goal they score in these competitions.

For the leagues ranked sixth to 30 in Uefa's coefficients rankings goals scored are given a weighting of 1.5, and goals scored in a league outwith the top 30, goals are given a weighting of 1.

Ciro Immobile won the 2019/20 European Golden Shoe, scoring 36 goals for Lazio in a tremendous Serie A season.
