CR7 is ahead of the likes of Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski as the player with most goals in Europe’s top five leagues this year.

35 might be the age of steep decline for most players, but Cristiano Ronaldo is not like most footballers.

Despite having entered the twilight years of his career, the Portugal international remains lethal as ever in front of goal which is quite evident from his tally of six goals in five matches for Juventus so far this season.

The Juventus attacker has dominated goalscoring charts in Europe for the better part of the last decade and it seems he is determined to keep up that trend in this decade too.

Ronaldo leads the list of players with most goals in Europe’s top five leagues in 2020.

He has 27 strikes so far in this calendar year with a remarkable average of a goal every 73 minutes on the pitch. Only Robert Lewandowski, who is second with 26 goals, has a better average. His long-term nemesis Lionel Messi is far behind him on that list, ranked tenth with 15 goals.
