The Portuguese remained on 31 goals after missing another La Liga game due to a thigh injury, dropping down to fourth place.

He now sits four goals behind Luis Suarez and seems unlikely to defend his European Golden Shoe title, with just two games to spare.

The Uruguayan leads the ranking with 35 strikes, one ahead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, while Gonzalo Higuain surpassed Ronaldo and now sits in third place.

Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang moved up in the ranking after scoring a brace, despite coming off the bench, and has now scored as many goals as Messi this season.

Here are the top 10 goalscorers in Europe's top five leagues:

1) Luis Suarez (Barcelona) – 35 goals [+1 goal]

2) Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Paris Saint-Germain) – 34 goals [+2 goals]

3) Gonzalo Higuain (Napoli) – 32 goals [+2 goals]

4) Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) – 31 goals

5) Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) – 27 goals

6) Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund) – 25 goals [+2 goals]

7) Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) – 25 goals [+1 goal]

8) Lionel Messi (Barcelona) – 25 goals

9) Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) – 23 goals

10) Neymar (Barcelona) – 23 goals
