Serie A will return to our screens this coming weekend to join Premier League, La Liga and Ligue 1 after the winter break. Bundesliga has only 18 teams, this allows them to take few more days off after New Year. Today, the focus is the European Golden Boot race. Lionel Messi lifted the award in 2017/18 season but he might be dethroned this season. Take a look at the five leading contenders so far.
5. Mohamed Salah- 14*2 Goals= 28 Points

Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah continues to score goals for fun in Premier League. Last season he netted 32 times to break the long-standing record of 31. This term so far he has netted 14 goals. This means he has 28 points in the race to lift the European Golden boot if you multiply his tally by factor 2 used for five biggest Leagues. Other stars with 28 points include Tottenham and Barcelona forwards Harry Kane and Luis Suarez. Both have netted 14 times which means 28 points.
4. Cristiano Ronaldo-14*2 Goals= 28 Points

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has netted 14 goals and assisted 5 more in 19 matches for his new team Juventus. The Old Lady are enjoying their best-ever start in Serie A for decades. They are still unbeaten with 17 wins and 2 draws to record a record 53 points so far. It is clear he is the difference. The goals give CR7 28 points in the race for European Golden Boot. He will want to reclaim his crown this year but he is already few goals behind the leader.
3. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang- 14*2 Goals= 28 Points

Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is doing his job up front but unfortunately, the rest are not putting in the same effort. The Gabon attacker has netted 14 goals so far this season in Premier League alone. If you multiply by factor 2 he gets 28 points in the race to lift European Golden Boot. He has been scoring goals for fun but he has never won this one. This might be his season.
