Pulisic and Chelsea Back To Champions League
UEFA Champions League will conclude the 2019-20 season with 11 matches in 17 days, including seven in Lisbon, Portugal, as a new champion will be crowned. Each Champions League match the remainder of the way kicks off at 3 p.m. ET and may also be streamed directly on CBS All Access. Matchday coverage begins as early as 8 a.m. ET on CBS Sports HQ.
As we count down the days to the restart, let’s check out the race for top goalscorer of the tournament.
11 goals (current leader)Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich: 11 goals.
It is a disgrace they are not handing out the Ballon d’Or Award this year for the most productive player on this planet. Lewandowski is among the best forwards on this planet and incessantly gets overshadowed by the Lionel Messis and Cristiano Ronaldos of the world. At the start of the tournament, he scored four goals in the space of 15 minutes against Red Star Belgrade, shattering the Champions League record for fastest to four goals in one game. With Erling Haaland and Borussia Dortmund eliminated from the tournament, Lewandowski sits as the clear-cut favorite to win the Golden Boot. It’s going to be tough to see anyone catch him.
10 goalsErling Haaland, Red Bull Salzburg and Borussia Dortmund
Haaland started the tournament in the group stage playing for Red Bull Salzburg out of Austria and finished his 2019-20 crusade in the knockout stage representing Borussia Dortmund. Two of Haaland’s 10 goals came in the first leg of the round of 16 against PSG for his new club. Borussia Dortmund failed to hang on and was once eventually eliminated by the vinaigrette side.
Six goalsHarry Kane, Tottenham Hotspur
Serge Gnabry, Bayern Munich
Dries Mertens, Napoli
Spurs striker Harry Kane is out of contention following a round of 16 elimination to RB Leipzig, in order that leaves us with Serge Gnabry and Dries Mertens as our probable contenders to catch Lewandowski. It’s worth noting that four of Gnabry’s six UCL goals came in a 7-2 win at Spurs back in October right through the group stage. That’s a very long time ago!
