Football divinities Lionel Messi & Cristiano Ronaldo both are now standing shoulder to shoulder in the battle of the Golden Shoe.
When Ronaldo was leading the title, Lionel joined him in the fourth spot of the Golden Shoe Table by scoring two goals against Elche from Barcelona.
The eligibility to earn the Gloden Shoe Award is to be the player with the most goals in the league games in the European Top Divisions. The rankings of players in the league will also be taken into the consideration during the assigning of points. Nevertheless, ‘Lazio Star Ciro Immobile’ is the current titleholder.
Both Cristiano & Messi are clashing with 36 points, whereas Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich is at the top of the table with 52 points, followed by Glimt’s Kasper Junker & Amal Pellegrino of Kristiansund Attacker.
Messi has won the European Golden Shoe 6 times, while C. Ronaldo has managed to win only 4 times. The attackers continue to be key players for their respective sides. Ronaldo has made nearly 19 appearances in Series A scoring 18 goals. On the other hand, Messi had made 22 appearances scoring 18 goals as well.
However, both are top goalscorers in their respective fields. Barcelona & Juventus have been inconsistent units this season.
