Champions League top goal scorers 2023/24: Golden boot rankings

Champions League Top Scorers - Hat-trick, Golden Boot rankings 2023/24, Champions League all-time top scorers.

Welcome to a new era in the Champions League, an era that has dawned in the wake of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi’s departure from Europe. This is a time when new heroes rise, records are shattered, and the beautiful game of football continues to evolve.

One such rising star is Erling Haaland, whose phenomenal debut season at Manchester City has set new standards in the Premier League. With an astounding 36 goals for Pep Guardiola’s side, Haaland not only clinched the Golden Boot in domestic competition but also extended his prowess to European action. His 12 goals in the Champions League earned him another Golden Boot, contributing to City’s historic treble by the end of the campaign.

As we look forward to this season, all eyes are on Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe, who are expected to challenge Haaland’s reign. However, with Karim Benzema joining Ronaldo in Saudi Arabia, only Haaland and Barcelona’s Robert Lewandowski remain as previous Champions League Golden Boot winners.

Stay tuned as we keep you updated on the top scorers’ table throughout the season. Remember, in major European tournaments run by UEFA, assists and minutes played serve as the first and second tiebreakers. So, let’s get ready for another exciting season of football!
