Cristiano Ronaldo has emerged as the king of Europe with his killer instincts in front of goals.

Cristiano Ronaldo has averaged a goal in 73 minutes of league football this year though his ratio is lesser than that of Robert Lewandowski who has scored in every 66 minutes of league football on the average.
Lazio striker Ciro Immobile, Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic of AC Milan completes the top five.
Swedish football legend Zlatan has 18 league goals this year. He has made an instant impact on current Serie A leader AC Milan upon his return to the San Siro at the start of this calendar year.
Ciro Immobile and Erling Haaland have scored 22 goals and 19 goals respectively in league football this year.
King of European league football, Cristiano Ronaldo has had a disrupted season due to Covid-19 in the current campaign. Despite this setback, he has still managed a very good return of six goals and one assist in four league matches.
