Ligue 1 defenders are in for a busy season after Lionel Messi joined Paris Saint-Germain’s galactico-style roster of attacking superstars.

Kylian Mbappe was already causing chaos in the French top flight as he finished 2020/21 with his third straight Golden Boot, netting 27 goals.

The World Cup winner is now joined in attack by six-time Ballon d’Or recipient Messi, so we expect plenty of goals in Paris as Mauricio Pochettino looks to wrestle the Ligue 1 title back off Lille. However, no PSG player can be found in the current top 10 which is led by two players on six goals after nine gameweeks.

So, can the Parisians start dominating the scoring charts anytime soon? Or will another Ligue 1 player come to the fore? Keep track of Ligue 1’s Golden Boot equivalent throughout the season below.
