Champions League top scorers: 2019/20 standings for the Golden Boot race

Published: 14:30, 24 August 2020

The 2019/20 Champions League has reached its climax with Bayern Munich prevailing as the European champions for a sixth time, and with that, we now know our Golden Boot winner for the season.

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has cantered to the goalscoring podium, chipping in with a whopping 15 goals to fire the Bavarians to European supremacy. He was unable to inflict damage on PSG in the final, but his contributions have been epic nonetheless.

The Polish striker scored in Bayern’s 8-2 quarter-final demolition of Barcelona having already reached double figures in the group stages. That tally was aided by four goals in a 6-0 win over Red Star Belgrade, with the quadruple equating to the fastest in the competition’s history and made the Polish striker just the second player to score four goals in a single Champions League game on two occasions, joining Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.

His bid for the Golden Boot was under serious threat with wonderkid Erling Braut Haaland on 10 goals after his double against PSG in the last-16, but Borussia Dortmund were eliminated by the Parisians.

In the end his closest rival came in the form of teammate Serge Gnabry, but unless the German speedster netted six goals in the final, the Golden Boot was always destined for Lewandowski’s mantlepiece. A truly masterful campaign from one of Europe’s most prolific, penalty-box assassins.

Here are the top-10 Champions League goalscorers as it finished this season.
