After an incredible season and 36 match unbeaten run, Lionel Messi is to be rewarded with the European Golden Boot.
Mohammed Salah may have broken the Premier League’s 38-game goal scoring record — but that still wasn’t enough to land him the European Golden Boot.
A goal in Liverpool’s final match of the season against Brighton saw him make it 32 in the league.
However, that still left him two short of Lionel Messi’s tally of 34 — and the Barcelona man has one more match remaining.
The Argentine is the joint-record holder with old rival Cristiano Ronaldo on four, but will become the outright leader unless something incredible happens next week.
With 29, Ciro Immobile is the top goal scorer in Serie A and still has one match remaining as Lazio host Inter Milan next weekend.But he would need six to deny Messi as even five would only see them share the award.
