Champions League 2019/20 Top-Scorers: 5 players who can win the Golden boot in the new season of the UCL which will kick-off on Tuesday night.
Champions League season 2019/20 is upon us, and just like every year best teams in Europe vie against each other to win the glorious trophy.
Moreover, along with team performances, certain individual performances become the highlights of the tournament and are remembered for the years.
There is no doubt that the battle for the top-scorer in this tournament as intense as the main tournament itself, every goal is very crucial over here, since it is a knockout tournament between the biggest clubs in Europe.
Last season, Lionel Messi won the award after scoring 12 goals across all matches. On the other hand, Robert Lewndowski, Kun Aguero and long time rival Cristiano Ronaldo followed him with 8 goals to Polish striker and Aguero and Ronaldo levelling at 6.
Thus, even this time there will be a stiff competition for this award, as in recent past, the Champions League nights have turned into goal-fests.
Moreover, with revelation of the winner of the tournament, there is an anticipation over who will win this award. Adding further, fans of Messi and Ronaldo also base their arguments over this award too.
Hence, just like every year, a new top-scorer is awaited. Although since recent past, it has been dominated by Messi and Ronaldo only.
The Sportsrush will now mention 5 players who can be the Champions League 2019/20 top-scorer, as the first group stage round begins on Tuesday night.
#1 Robert Lewandowski
The Polish striker has a great record in the European competition and have scored 53 goals in the 38 games he have played in the Champions League so far.
Lewandowski even had an impressive Champions League campaign last season after he scored 8 goals in 8 games in the tournament to upgrade his tally, making him second to Lionel Messi in the top-scorer list.
Therefore, the Polish international is a definite contender to contest for the Champions League golden boot. Even though many feel that Lewandowski is past his peak years and have aged to repeat this feat.
However, Lewansowski still seem to have some steam left in him ahead of the start of the new season.
