Top goalscorers in the 2020/21 UCL

UEFA Champions League

With the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League campaign having drawn to a close, here is a look at the top goalscorers from this season's competition.

Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland walked away with the 2020/21 Champions League Golden Boot award after scoring an incredible 10 goals for the Bundesliga side in just eight appearances in the competition this season.

In doing so, and despite his team falling out of the tournament at the quarter-final stage, the 20-year-old became the youngest-ever recipient of the award, and only the second player from a German club to claim it, after Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski last season.

"Always happy for my achievements but they're never possible without my teammates!" Haaland shared on Twitter after being honoured.

Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe claimed second spot after netting eight times in the competition this season, while the third position was shared by seven different players, all of whom netted six times. 

That group includes Chelsea's title-winning striker Olivier Giroud, whose tally included a remarkable four-goal haul during the Blues' 4-0 win over LaLiga side Sevilla in the group stage in December last year.

The Frenchman features alongside countryman Karim Benzema of Real Madrid, Youssef En-Nesyri of Sevilla, Manchester United's Marcus Rashford, former Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata, Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah and Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar.

Notably, there was no place among the leading goalscorers for perennial contenders Lewandowski, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, with the former duo having netted five times and the latter on four occasions.
