Eto'o closing on Montella

FC Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o has cut the gap to Vincenzo Montella in the ESM Golden Shoe standings.
FC Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o is closing on first place in the race to finish top of the ESM Golden Shoe standings.

Henry stalled
The Cameroonian international scored in his side's 4-0 defeat of Sevilla FC on Saturday night to make it 16 league goals for the season, which equates to 32 points. Eto'o is now level with Arsenal FC forward Thierry Henry, who did not have the chance to add to his tally because his team were on FA Cup duty.

Forlán on fire
AS Roma attacker Vincenzo Montella remains on top with 17 goals, or 34 points, but was unable to register in the capital club's 3-2 victory against FC Messina Peloro on Sunday. The biggest mover of the week was Uruguay striker Diego Forlán, whose two goals in Villarreal CF's 4-0 win at Real Sociedad de Fútbol moved him to joint eleventh.

Only the leading five countries (Spain, Italy, Germany, France and England) on the UEFA Ranking have two as their multiplier. This is to emphasise the difference in international performance level between clubs from those countries and those from the other countries.

A player cannot first play in a summer league (eg Norway) and then in a winter league (eg Spain) and combine the points total for each season.
