Robert Lewandowski is currently leading the rankings for UEFA competition goalscorers in 2019/20, but the Bayern striker did not finish the top marksman in Europe's big five domestic leagues after Lazio's Ciro Immobile ended on 36 goals for the season.

Lewandowski finished the Bundesliga campaign with 34 strikes and appeared well placed to be crowned the top scorer in Europe's five big leagues, only for Immobile to draw level in the latter stages of Lazio's campaign.

In European competition, Lewandowski stands clear of the pack with 13 goals and is aiming to become the first player to deny Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi top spot since 2006/07 (the only slight exception being 2014/15, when they shared the podium with Neymar after all three finished with ten goals). This season, Ronaldo scored four before his Juventus side were eliminated in the UEFA Champions League round of 16, while Messi has hit three going into Barcelona's quarter-final against Lewandowski's Bayern.
