The 19/20 has finally come to an end. Despite COVID-19 threatening to disrupt the football calendar, FAs all around the world rallied and the season was successfully completed. Yesterday’s Champions League final drew the curtain on football activities for the 19/20 campaign. As usual, we had some phenomenal goalscoring campaigns all over Europe and it’s time to look at the top five. Robert Lewandowski is expectedly number one but who joins him on the list?
Werner enjoyed a fantastic campaign in front of goal as he scored 34 goals for RB Leipzig. He helped his side finish third in the league and reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League before moving to Chelsea in early August. If he hits the standard of this season in West London next time out, then Chelsea fans are in for a good time.
Like Werner, Lukaku also scored 34 goals in the just-concluded season including in every single Europa League game that his side played en route the final. However, his season ended anti-climatically as his own goal handed Sevilla the Europa League crown. Nonetheless, it was a very productive campaign for the Belgian.
Even at age 35, Ronaldo is not showing any sign of slowing down. The Portuguese superstar has had another superb season by scoring 37 goals without which Juventus would have surely not been crowned champions of Italy. Despite falling short to Ciro Immobile in the race for the Golden Boot, Ronaldo can look back at the season from a personal standpoint with great pride.
Immobile was the only reason why Ronaldo didn’t win the Serie A Golden Boot and why Lewandowski didn’t win the European Golden Shoe. That alone summarizes the amazing campaign that the Italian striker had where he scored 39 goals. He and teammates were Juve’s nearest challengers for most of the season but they ultimately fell off in the closing stages. If he continues in the same vein next season, then expect his side to be a thorn in the Old Lady’s flesh again once more.
Lewandowski delivered arguably the best season anyone not named Ronaldo or Messi has dropped in the last two decades of football. The Pole was absolutely lethal throughout the season. He scored 55 goals and finished as top scorer in all three competitions that he participated in. He’s the clear favourite for any football award that will hold this year.
