Eighth hat-trick of the season takes Portuguese forward to 48 league goals for the season.

Although there is one week to go before the official closing standings of the ESM Golden Shoe are revealed, we can confirm that Cristiano Ronaldo has retained the award after finishing the season on 48 goals.

Last season the Real Madrid forward shared the award with former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, but after scoring his eighth hat-trick of the season in the 7-3 win over Getafe on Saturday, he finishes five goals clear of Lionel Messi.

For Messi this has been another memorable campaign – his total of 43 goals helping Barcelona to the league title.

The final place on the podium in the standings appears destined for Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero, who has scored 26 goals this season.

Elsewhere in the top ten Red Bull Salzburg’s Jonatan Soriano took his tally for the season to 31, while Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game in Spurs’ 1-0 win over Everton to finish the season on 21 goals.

In Italy, Verona striker Luca Toni, who celebrates his 38th birthday today, scored twice in his side’s victory over Parma. That brace took the former international striker above Inter’s Mauro Icardi and Juventus’ Carlos Tevez, with one match of the Serie A season remaining.

Rules

Only the leading five countries – Spain, Italy, Germany, England and Portugal – in the UEFA rankings have two as their multiplier. This is to emphasise the difference in (international) performance level between clubs from those countries and those of other nations.A player cannot play first in a summer league (e.g. Norway) and then in a winter league (e.g. Spain) and combine the points totals for each season.
