Lionel Messi is leading in Europe's top scorers, with Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo not in top 5

Two football greatest players who have dominated football for ten years, have always been known for their yearly quest for Europe's golden boot. But the 2018/2019 season seems to be different from the other years, as Cristiano Ronaldo, who is known by many to be a goal machine, is right now, not among top five highest goal scorers in Europe this season.

The former Real Madrid superstar is having his trade in the Italian league, Series A, this season. Despite his outstanding performance in Juventus, he is far behind some new contenders in the fight for Europe's golden boot. His arch rival, Lionel Messi, is winning the race with 6 goals ahead of the next contender, Kylian Mbappe. He is no doubt, one of the most successful sport athletes and fans hope to see his success manifest in Italy this season.

Lionel Messi, who will be facing Manchester United this evening in Nuo Camp in champions league second leg, seems to be at his peak. The talisman has been breaking some records this season with his out-of-this-world displays. Many fans already see Messi as the next world best winner. But as it stands, it is still open to anyone.
