For the past 20 years, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have dominated Europe’s goal-scoring competitions, breaking multiple records and regularly placing first and second in the region. In particular, Messi holds the record with six victories in the European Golden Boot. Messi has been ranked second in Europe’s best scorers ranking for the last ten years, despite his great achievements and his title as the Argentine World Cup winner. Messi has also surpassed Ronaldo in goals scored since Ronaldo moved to Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia.

That distinction goes to Barcelona’s sharpshooter Robert Lewandowski, as neither Messi nor Ronaldo top the list of the last ten years’ top scores in Europe. Ronaldo scored 350 goals in 406 games during his time with Real Madrid, Juventus, and Manchester United, according to a report from Transfermarkt. Messi, for his part, scored 377 goals in 458 games for Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.

Lewandowski has outperformed both legends in terms of goal scoring ability. Despite only joining Bayern Munich in 2014, he won five straight top scorer trophies and scored an astounding 344 goals during his time there. His scoring rampage continued after he moved on a free transfer to Barcelona. Notably, Lewandowski scored 41 league goals in the 2020–21 season, but the award was canceled during the epidemic, depriving Lewandowski of the coveted prize, according to many.

Unfazed, Lewandowski has scored 407 goals in 478 games in Europe’s top divisions over the past ten years, displaying his incredible consistency and deadly finishing. Harry Kane, the captain of England, is currently trailing Lewandowski, Messi, and Ronaldo. Kane replaced Lewandowski at Bayern Munich and scored 309 goals in 453 games for both Tottenham and Bayern. With 271 goals in 352 appearances for PSG and Monaco, Kylian Mbappe of PSG rounds out the top five. Real Madrid transfer speculations are circulating, though.

Notable players like Karim Benzema, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Luis Suarez, Mohamed Salah, and Ciro Immobile are all included in the list of the decade’s top scorers; their goal-scoring exploits have all had a big impact on European football.
