Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo moved ahead of Barcelona forward, Lionel Messi, in the ESM Golden Shoe standings after scoring the winner in Saturday’s clasico.

That took the Portuguese striker to 42 for the season, one ahead of his arch-rival.

Elsewhere in the top ten, Wayne Rooney scored twice in Manchester United’s thrilling 4-4 draw with Everton, to take his tally for the season to 26. That’s four more than Sergio Aguero of Premier League rivals Manchester City, who scored the opener in the 2-0 win at Wolves. Meanwhile, in Germany, Schalke’s Klaas-Jan Huntelaar was on target for Schalke, while Serie A’s leading scorer, Zlatan Ibahimovic, secured a point for Scudetto-chasing Milan with a late equaliser against Bologna.

**Rules

Only the leading five countries – Spain, Italy, Germany, France and England – 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.
