Sébastien Haller was the early frontrunner after becoming only the second player to register in all six group games after Cristiano Ronaldo in 2017/18. Haller had already become the first player to score four times on his Champions League debut since Marco van Basten during Ajax's 5-1 victory at Sporting CP.

Yet Benzema moved into pole position with a double in the first leg of Real Madrid's semi-final tie at Manchester City, his Panenka penalty moving him to 14 goals for the campaign. The Frenchman pulled two clear of Bayern forward Lewandowski in the second leg with another spot kick.
