Liverpool?star?Luis Suarez?and?Real Madrid?attacker?Cristiano Ronaldo?are joint winners of the European Golden Shoe this season after scoring 31 goals each in the Premier League and La Liga respectively.
Last year’s winner Lionel Messi has to settle for third spot this campaign following his 28 goals for Barcelona in 2013-14.
Suarez was in danger of missing out on the prestigious individual award as Ronaldo still had one game to add to his tally at the weekend, but the Portuguese forward eventually missed his side’s victory over Espanyol due to injury.
Both Messi and fourth-placed Diego Costa failed to find the net in Barca’s 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid, while Torino star Ciro Immobile did not score either in his side’s 2-2 draw against Fiorentina.
Red Bull Salzburg forward Jonatan Soriano and Heerenveen striker Alfred Finnbogason are the only players from outside Europe’s top five leagues to make the top 10, while Manchester City’s Yaya Toure is the only midfielder in there after scoring an impressive 20 goals for the Premier League champions.
Players such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Alexis Sanchez, Carlos Tevez and Mario Mandzukic all nearly missed out on a spot among Europe’s 10 best goalscorers.
