Who Will Win the European Golden Boot ?

The European Golden boot is an association football award presented each season to the top scorer from the league matches of the top division of every European national league.

This year Golden boot race has seen some new faces ending the domination of two megastars namely Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Both these superstars have shared this award between them from 2007 season till now.

Ronaldo won it 4 times, one while he was a player for the Red Giants and 3 times for the Galacticos.
Messi has also won this award 4 times with FC Barcelona.
Only Gerd Muller from Bayern Munich has won it twice earlier.

The Possible contenders for this year Golden boot race are the following superstars:

# Mo Salah | Liverpool | 28 Goals (56 Points)
 Salah has emerged as the unstoppable beast right away when he signed for Liverpool at the start of the season. With an incredible pace and excellent dribbling skills, he has torn apart the best defences of the Premier League. Salah is a part of the unstoppable Liverpool Trio with Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

He tops the list of the possible winner this year for this prestigious award ending the dominance of Messi and Ronaldo.

# Leo Messi | FC Barcelona | 25 Goals (50 Points)
Messi scored his 4th award last season and is not far behind Salah to grab his 5th one. The Argentine International is not as prolific as he used to be before mainly due to playing in Midfield areas but still, no one can deny the genius which the little magician produces. He is certainly one of the favourites to grab this award.

# Edison Cavani | PSG | 24 Golas (48 Points)

Uruguayan International has been one the key players for PSG from the last couple of seasons. After the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Cavani got back to his old form and became one of the best strikers of Europe last season. With the arrival of Neymar, Edi didn't lose his form and is scoring goals like a machine.

#Ciro Immobile | Lazio| 24 Goals (48 Points)

Itlay International enjoyed one of his best seasons last year and certainly hasn't lost his feet this year too.
The former Dortmund striker is a key player for Lazio this season and his side wants to break into top 4 of the Seria A.

# Harry Kane | Tottenham hotspurs | 24 Goals (48 Points)
Harry Kane has been the top scorer in Premier League for the past two seasons and the England striker has performed exceptionally well this year too. He has been sidelined for one month due to an Ankle Injury but still is a title contender.

#Robert Lewandowski | FC Bayern Munich | 23 Goals (46 Points)
Regarded as one of the best strikers of Europe, Lewandowski has his it 30 goal tally from last 2 years and is certainly one of the imp. contender for the European Golden boot race this year,.
He will be hoping to carry his formidable run to the World Cup.

#Cristiano Ronaldo | Real Madrid | 22 Goals ( 44 Points)
Started as one of his worst seasons in years, Ronaldo started very slowly and didn't score much except in Champions League. But in 2018, he has grabbed his old form and is scoring in every match till now. He is just second to Leo Messi in La Liga and surely one of the contenders for the Golden boot race this year too.

#Luis Suarez | FC Barcleona| 21 Goals ( 42 Points)
Due to Neymar leaving Barca, Suarez had to play the winger role due to which there was a sudden dip in his for. But he returned with a bang in La Liga and is only third to Messi and Ronald in the top scorer race. He can surely add more goals to his tally this time too.

#Sergio Aguero | Manchester City | 21 Goals | ( 42 Points )
The Argentine International has been one of the best strikers in the Premier League and this year too he has been in a prolific form and has scored 21 goals for his club. Sometimes troubled by injury woes, Aguero is one of the key players for the Pep Guardiola side despite the arrival of Gabriel Jesus.
