With the European football season entering its final stretch, there is plenty of silverware on the line.

Regardless of how well a team has played over the course of the season, it’s the trophies at the end that their campaigns will be judged by.


For the leading goal-scorers on the continent, the Golden Shoe is what it’s all about.

Luis Suarez won the award last year with 40 goals and 80 points (calculated according to UEFA coefficients) but it’s his Barcelona team-mate leading the way this time around.

Check the above gallery for the top 20 goal-scorers in Europe.

Who do you think will win the Golden Shoe at the end of this season?
