With Lionel Messi out for the season and his closest challenger, Cristiano Ronaldo, in action in the Spanish Cup final, there was no movement at the very top of the ESM Golden Shoe standings this weekend.

Below the runaway leaders many of the season’s most prolific strikers maintained their good form, with goals for Edinson Cavani, Robin Van Persie, Jackson Martinez, Stefan Kiessling, Philipp Hosiner and Robert Lewandowski.

For much of Europe the season is now over, but we will continue updating the standings until all the major leagues have been completed.

*** 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.

    I like the fact that CR7 is recognised as the 2nd best player in the world
