Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi have topped the Champions League scoring charts for each of the last eight seasons.
OK, the deadly duo shared the accolade with Messi’s team-mate Neymar last year but the Brazilian aside, no one else has topped the chart since Kaka bagged 10 for AC Milan back in 2006-07.
Ronaldo picked up his first gong while at Manchester United in 2007-08 and has also claimed the title in 2012-13, 2013-14, scoring a record 17 goals, and again last year.
Messi, meanwhile, collected his first top scorer record in 2008-09 and held onto the title until 2011-12.
The Argentine has now been Champions League top scorer five times to Ronaldo’s four and after the Real Madrid ace bagged a hat-trick in his side’s 4-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk it appears to be another two horse race.
