10 Leading Goalscorers In 2021, Messi Has Big Lead On Ronaldo

With three months of football having already been played in 2021, here are the 10 leading goalscorers in Europe's top five leagues so far in this calendar year, with Lionel Messi having opened up a big gap on Cristiano Ronaldo.

Click through the gallery above to see who the top 10 goalscorers in 2021 so far are, according to Transfermarkt!

FC Barcelona's captain has begun the calendar year in excellent form, having already scored 19 goals across all competitions in the 19 matches he has played for the Spanish giants.

Despite his incredible run, the Argentine still finds himself trailing Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski, who has found the back of the net on 20 occasions in just 16 appearances.

The Polish centre-forward might be desperate to continue hitting the back of the net regularly as that, along with a few trophy wins, could give him the best chance of winning the Ballon d'Or this year, especially after France Football suspended the competition last year.

Many believe the 32-year-old should have been awarded the prestigious individual accolade for his exploits in 2020, having won five trophies, including the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League title.

Juventus superstar Ronaldo has struck 12 times since the turn of the year across all platforms for the Bianconeri, a tally that is only good enough for fifth place, with both Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland above the ex-Real Madrid man.
