The race for the top scorer in the Champions League this season has gradually identified potential candidates.
Rashford competed against Halland
In addition to the competition for tickets to the knockout round, this year, the best scorer in the Champions League is gradually being formed. Surprisingly, the person leading the race for the top scorer in the Champions League this season is Dortmund striker Erling Halland, not Ronaldo, Messi or Lewandowski – the top three contenders for the title of top scorer.
Halland and Rashford are leading the top scorer in the Champions League this season
Last season, Halland became a phenomenon in the Champions League when he scored 10 goals after only 8 appearances, the performance reached more than 1 goal / match. Entering this season, Halland continues to maintain an impressive performance with 6 goals after the first 4 games.

This is a number that does not fully correspond to the player who is the greatest striker in the history of the Champions League. However, it is somewhat understandable for the Portuguese superstar because he was absent from 2 of the last 4 matches due to an infection with Covid-19.
Messi, meanwhile, has scored three goals in three Champions League appearances this season. Although coach Kuman ranked the highest stone in the attack, the Argentine super-Argentine often retires and plays as a Barça midfielder. Proof that the 36th player had 2 assists for his teammates to score a goal.
An equally notable name is Robert Lewandowski. The top scorer last season had only 2 goals for Bayern Munich despite playing without a minute in the Champions League this season. Constant plowing throughout last season seems to have affected the Polish striker’s result.
Erling Halland continued to show a terrible goal in the Champions League and officially surpassed Messi and Mbape to set …
