Luis Suarez has now gone five games without scoring, yet despite that barren run he remains top of the ESM Golden Shoe standings for another week.

His closest contender, Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo completed the final match of his three-game suspension on Saturday, whilst third-placed Diego Costa, failed to get on the scoresheet at the weekend.

Elsewhere in the top 10, there were some significant movers with Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge scoring twice to move up to 4th in the standings. In France, PSG’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic maintained his impressive goalscoring form, scoring a hat-trick in his side’s 4-2 win at Toulouse to move up to 5th in the ESM rankings.

Another player to record a hat-trick was Red Bull Salzburg’s ‘Alan’, who knocked in three at the weekend in his side’s 6-1 win over Admira. That’s 21 for the season for the in-form Brazilian forward.

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.
