The Leading Scorers In 2019 So Far, CR7 Not In Top 10

With one month having already passed in 2019, here are the leading goalscorers across Europe's five toughest leagues so far this year. While FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi is near the top, Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is not even in the top 10.

Click through the gallery above to see the 10 leading goalscorers this year so far, according to Transfermarkt.

The new year has got off to a fantastic start for many of Europe's most talented attackers, but no one is more in form than Atalanta striker Duvan Zapata – the Colombian has struck eight times in just four matches since the beginning of January.

Second to the 27-year-old is five-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi, who has scored the same number of goals, but has played three more games than Zapata has.

The Argentine, averaging a goal every 71 minutes since the turn of the year, has found the back of the net in every match he has played in so far in 2019.

Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa is next on the list with his seven goals in five matches in the new year so far, an identical record to Paris Saint-Germain's Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguayan's club teammate Kylian Mbappe comes in at fifth in the rankings, having struck on six occasions in five appearances so far in 2019.
