Messi remained at the top of the ranking with 34 goals, equating to 68 points, despite failing to add to his tally after his strike in FC Barcelona's 2-0 win over Getafe was recorded as an own goal by Mauro Arambarri.

However, his closest rival Kylian Mbappe is still suspended and will only be able to feature again in Paris Saint-Germain's final game of the campaign. As a consequence, the French sensation stayed on 30 strikes and 60 points.

Meanwhile, Fabio Quagliarella keeps on scoring in Serie A and has now netted 26 goals in 2018/19. With just two games left to be played in Italy's top flight, it seems that Ronaldo, who is on 21 league goals, will struggle to beat the 36-year-old to the Capocannoniere title, as well as third place in the Golden Shoe race.

After failing to score in Juventus' 2-0 defeat to AS Roma on Sunday, Ronaldo has fallen further down the ranking, with Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who shared the 2018/19 Premier League Golden Boot with Mohamed Salah, jumped a goal ahead of him following their braces on the weekend.

Do you think Ronaldo can still climb up this year's Golden Shoe ranking, with two Serie A games still to be played? Have your say in the comments section below.
