Although the latest season has finally come to a close, the calendar year goalscoring race offers us plenty to look forward to when the 2021/22 campaign begins in August!
While the likes of Messi, Ronaldo and Kylian Mbappe will be hoping to score goals at the Copa America and UEFA European Championship, respectively, it is their club records in 2021 that we are focused on.
It has been a remarkable year for Messi individually, with the 33-year-old Argentine having struck on 28 occasions across all competitions since the beginning of January. While he did get his hands on the Copa del Rey title, Barcelona's LaLiga run-in was deemed a miserable one, but their captain's form did not falter.
Messi has scored an incredible seven league braces since the calendar year began, and also hit the back of the net twice in his team's 4-0 Copa del Rey triumph over Athletic Bilbao in April.
The Blaugrana captain is currently ahead of Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski by two goals, although the Poland international has played nine fewer club matches in 2021 due to an injury that kept him sidelined for a few weeks.
Erling Haaland has scored 24 times so far this year, while Gerard Moreno has been in great touch for Villarreal, but where do Ronaldo and Mbappe rank at the halfway mark? Find out in the gallery above!
