While Lionel Messi drew a blank, Cristiano Ronaldo is making a late push to enter the top 10 goalscorers in Europe ranking. Here are the 10 best marksmen in Europe.

Messi failed to score in FC Barcelona's 4-1 win over Las Palmas, while Edinson Cavani netted a brace for PSG and drew level on 35 goals with the Argentine.

Robert Lewandowski jumped back on to the podium after netting twice in Bayern's tremendous 5-4 victory over Red Bull Leipzig.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Luis Suarez were also in the scoresheet this weekend, while Alexandre Lacazette has moved up the table.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, netted a brace against Sevilla, helping Real keep their La Liga title hopes alive. He took his tally to 22 league goals, and remains three strikes short of making the top 10.

Here are the top 10 goalscorers in Europe's top five leagues:

1) Lionel Messi (Barca) – 35 goals

2) Edinson Cavani (PSG) – 35 goals [+2 goals this weekend]

3) Robert Lewandowski (Bayern) – 30 goals [+2 goals this weekend]

4) Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (BVB) – 29 goals [+1 goal this weekend]

5) Luis Suarez (Barca) – 28 goals [+1 goal this weekend]

6) Edin Dzeko (Roma) – 27 goals

7) Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon) – 26 goals [+2 goals this weekend]

8) Dries Mertens (Napoli) – 25 goals [+1 goal this weekend]

9) Andrea Belotti (Torino) – 25 goals

10) Anthony Modeste (Cologne) – 25 goals

Note: Messi leads the official Golden Shoe ranking with 70 (35x2) points. Due to UEFA's ranking of Europe's top leagues, the goals of Ligue 1's best goalscorer, Cavani, are only multiplied by 1.5, while Messi's strikes – as well as goals by players in the other top ranked leagues – are multiplied by 2.0. As a consequence, Cavani's 35 goals only earn him 52.5 (35x1.5) Golden Shoe points so far.

Who do you think will finish as Europe's top goalscorer at the end of the season? Have your say in the comments section below.
