The Leading Scorers In 2019, Messi Still Far Ahead Of CR7

As we are already into the second month of the new season, here are the leading goalscorers across Europe's top five leagues so far in 2019. Despite not playing in FC Barcelona's past three matches, Lionel Messi is still at the top of the ranking with more than double the tally Cristiano Ronaldo has.

Click through the gallery above to see the 10 leading goalscorers across Europe's top five leagues in 2019, according to Transfermarkt.

The Catalan club's captain is yet to feature in this campaign after he sustained an ankle injury upon his return to training in pre-season. However, Messi, 32, still leads the way in terms of goals scored at club level across Europe's top five leagues this year, with 30 strikes in as many matches.

The nearest to the Blaugrana man is Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, who is on 25 goals in this calendar year so far, followed by Manchester City hitman Sergio Aguero.

The Argentine has been in excellent form of late, and has notched up 24 strikes in 2019 until now. Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe has struck as many times as the 31-year-old, but could drop further down the list after his recent injury.

Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema comes in at fifth in the ranking, ahead of some other high-profile scorers, such as Raheem Sterling and Liverpool winger Sadio Mane.
