With most of domestic seasons coming to an end – and with the UEFA Champions League reaching its final stages – its that time of the year where we acknowledge and award the best players of the season. This time around, we focus on the match winners, the goal-scorers, the ones who bring you edge of the seat and leave you there in limbo just for that millisecond while your mind contemplates what just happened.
The top scorers across Europe are:
|Name of the Striker||League||Number of Goals|
|Cristiano Ronaldo||Liga BBVA||30|
|Gonzalo Higuain||Serie A||30|
|Zlatan Ibrahimovic||Ligue 1||30|
|Luis Suarez||Liga BBVA||26|
|Lionel Messi||Liga BBVA||22|
|Harry Kane||Premier League||22|
|Islam Slimani||Primeira League||22|
