Liverpool’s Luis Suarez and Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa drew level with early season pacesetter Cristiano Ronaldo at the top of the ESM Golden Shoe standings this weekend.

Costa inspired Atletico to a 3-0 victory over Valencia, while Suarez maintained his rich vein of form with a brace in Liverpool’s remarkable 5-0 away win at Tottenham.

Behind the leading trio, comes Europe’s most prolific marksman this season – FK Suduva’s Nerijus Valskis who banged in 27 goals in Lithuania’s already completed A Lyga.

Sergio Aguero, with 13 goals this season, takes fifth spot alongside Sporting’s Fredy Montero and Fiorentina’s Giuseppe Rossi.

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.
