Final Ranking: The 10 Best Goalscorers In 2020

With 2020 having come to close less than a week ago, here is a recap of who the 10 best goalscorers were in the previous calendar year, a ranking in which Lionel Messi finished far below Cristiano Ronaldo.

Here were the best goalscorers in 2020 across Europe’s top five leagues in all competitions, according to Transfermarkt.

Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski ended 2020 as the top goalscorer across the year for club, with the Poland international finding the back of the net 45 times.

Closest to the Bundesliga superstar was Serie A talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored on 41 occasions in all competitions for Juventus last year.

Former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku bagged 35 goals across the previous calendar year for Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan, a tally that earned him third place and a spot above Lazio’s Ciro Immobile, who struck 34 times.

Following the Italian in fifth was Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Erling Haaland, who enjoyed an incredible first year at the German giants.

Pele Responds To Ronaldo Breaking His Goal Record?

The 20-year-old hit the back of the net on 33 occasions from just 32 matches in 2020, but where did the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Mohamed Salah and Lionel Messi finish?

Alone in the list as the only midfielder was Manchester United’s impressive No. 18 Bruno Fernandes, whose 26 strikes saw him finish the previous calendar in eighth spot.
