The Top Goalscorers In UCL This Season So Far

The Portuguese scored his side's only goal in their 3-1 home defeat to the Serie A giants, converting a 97th minute penalty to prevent the tie from going to extra-time.

The last-minute goal was Ronaldo's 15th in the competition this season, which means he is only two strikes short of his all-time record for goals scored during a single Champions League campaign.

The former Manchester United star, who has now scored in all 10 of his appearances in the UCL this season, seems destined to lift the competition's golden boot once again, with second-placed Mohamed Salah sitting seven strikes behind him.

The Egyptian currently sits on eight strikes, having equalled Samuel Eto’o's record for the most Champions League goals by an African during a single campaign, and shares second position with his teammate Roberto Firmino as well as Sevilla's Wissam Ben Yedder.

Sadio Mane is the second African in the top 10, and follows in joint fifth place with seven goals, alongside Edinson Cavani and Harry Kane.
