International

Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski has been overtaken in the race for the Golden Shoe award, despite scoring a goal every 77 minutes this season.

Lewandowski raced into an early lead for the prestigious honour currently held by Lionel Messi and scored in every league fixture this season before their defeat to Bundesliga leaders Borussia Monchengladbach this weekend.

The Poland striker, who finished eighth in the rankings for 2019 Ballon d'Or has been overtaken by Lazio striker Ciro Immobile, who has netted a staggering 17 goals in just 15 league outings.

Once ridiculed after flopping at Borussia Dortmund as a replacement for Lewandowski, the 29-year-old has scored seven more than his nearest rival in Serie A, Romelu Lukaku and 10 more than Cristiano Ronaldo.

After an injury-hit start to the season for Messi, he enters the top-five for the first time in the 2019/20 season after scoring 12 goals in the last eight LaLiga games.

Real Madrid's Karim Benzema, with 11 goals in the only other representative of the Spanish top-flight.

Leicester City's Jamie Vardy (16), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (11) and Tammy Abraham (11) represent the Premier League - while Wissam Ben Yedder and Timo Werner complete the list.
