The Top 13 Goalscorers In Europe This Season So Far

Cristiano Ronaldo has climbed to third place among Europe's top league goalscorers, while three Africans are in the top 10 – here most dangerous marksmen in Europe in 2018/19 so far.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see the top goalscorers in Europe's top five leagues so far this season.

Ronaldo netted a brace in his side's 3-3 draw with Parma on the weekend, overtaking Fabio Quagliarella in the Capocannoniere race for Serie A's golden boot.

As a consequence, the 34-year-old jumped to third spot among Europe's top goalscorers this season. Only Kylian Mbappe, who drew a blank in Paris Saint-Germain's 2-1 defeat to Olympique Lyon, and Lionel Messi are ahead of Ronaldo.

The Argentine, though, also netted a brace in FC Barcelona's 2-2 draw with Valencia to keep the Portuguese at a distance, while widening his gap on second-placed Mbappe.

Further down the ranking, LOSC Lille striker Nicolas Pepe, who was born in France but represents Ivory Coast at international level, has caught up with Mohamed Salah. The African duo are two of four players with 16 league goals so far this season.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the third African in the top 10, and Arsenal forward is one of three players who have netted 15 times in league football until now.
