The five-time Ballon d'Or winner won this season’s Golden Shoe race after finding the back of the net on 36 occasions in Spain's top flight, equating to 72 points in the ESM ranking, while arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo failed to make the top 10.

Despite only winning the LaLiga title with the Blaugrana during the 2018-19 campaign, the Argentine enjoyed another remarkable season in terms of his individual contributions, netting the same amount of goals as Cardiff City and Fulham managed in the entire 2018-19 Premier League season.

In addition to notching up his third consecutive European top-scorer gong and his sixth overall, the 31-year-old also finished as the UEFA Champions League's top marksman for his 12 goals in ten games.
