Five of the best strikers in the Champions League
The UEFA Champions League is one of the most anticipated and prominent league in the world of football. It has seen a number of amazing and remarkable goal scorers throughout its history. Here are the five players who made it to Eastbridge bet broker’s top 5 all-time goal scorers for this season’s Champions League.
1) Cristiano Ronaldo
Football Club (Currently): Juventus
This Portuguese forward is currently the highest goal scorer in Europe’s elite football competition. Not only is he the top goal-scorer in the Champions League, he is also Real Madrid’s all-time top goal scorer with 450 goals before he transferred to Italian club, Juventus. He is also the highest scorer for the Portugal National Team. Apart from these, the Juventus forward holds the record for having the highest number of UEFA Champions League top scorer awards. He is also the only player to win four European Golden Shoes in history.
2) Lionel Messi
Football Club (Currently): Barcelona
This Argentinian ‘Golden Boy,’ is the second highest scorer in the competition. He now outranks Cristiano Ronaldo as the holder of scoring the most hat-trick in the league. As a young boy, he already attracted the interest of several European clubs. Since joining Barcelona, many records have been shattered by this forward which includes 91 goals in one season in 2012. He is La Liga’s all-time top goal scorer. He also holds the record for scoring most goals in one La Liga season.
3) Robert Lewandowski
Football Club (Currently): Bayern Munich
This Polish striker has been unstoppable ever since he transferred to Bayern Munich. He has a record of 106 goals in 126 appearances. This premier marksman’s greatest strength is the ability to find space inside and around the penalty box. He has the rare gift of notching even close-range goals. He is also very swift at sorting out his feet and striking shots away. In February, Lewandowski joined an elite group of players when he scored a brace in the 5-0 victory against Besiktas, making him part of the all-time top ten scorers in the history of UEFA Champions League.
4) Sergio Aguero
Football Club (Currently): Manchester City
Since this Argentine has been signed by Manchester City, he helped the club secure three Premier League titles all the while pushing himself to the top of the club’s goal-scoring records. He is one of the key players for Man City, especially during the club’s quest for glory in the 2017-18 season. Being one of the most impressive forwards in the world of football, he is equally strong with both feet. His technical abilities are dreadful for defenders around the penalty area. Not only is he one of the top goal scorers in the Champions League, he is also City’s all-time leading goal scorer, outranking Eric Brook’s 78-year record.
5) Karim Benzema
Football Club (Currently): Real Madrid
Real Madrid’s French Forward continues to make history at the Spanish club. He holds the record for being the high-scoring Frenchman of all time during the European Cup. He is also included in the list of all-time top goal-scorers in the Champions League era following his strike against Liverpool during last season’s Champions League. With Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus, Real Madrid is left with Karim Benzema as the club’s sharp shooter and leading goal scorer.
