Ronaldo suspended, but still well clear.
Neymar and Jackson Martinez make top ten for the first time this season.

With Cristiano Ronaldo serving the first of his two-match suspension, there was a chance for second-placed Lionel Messi to close the gap on his great rival at the head of the ESM Golden Shoe standings.

Messi did net once in Barcelona’s 3-2 victory over Villarreal, but still trails Ronaldo by six goals. Also on target in that game was teammate, Neymar, who climbs into the top ten for the first time this season.

Another new arrival in the top ten is Porto’s Jackson Martinez, who took his tally to the season to 15 when he opened the scoring in his side’s 5-0 rout of Pacos Ferreira.

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.
