Ronaldo wins UEFA Champions League Golden Boot

Despite his poor show in Kiev on Saturday, Cristiano Ronaldo has a consolation in the fact that he finished top of the UEFA Champions League scoring charts for the sixth consecutive season, ending the campaign with 15 goals to his name.

Ronaldo has now top-scored in the competition, either jointly or outright, a record seven times. His final tally this term is two short of his record of 17 for a single season.

Sadio Mané’s final goal in Kiev on Saturday night meant he joined Liverpool colleagues Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah in joint second behind Ronaldo on ten strikes each.

A Liverpool player did top the assists charts, though, midfielder James Milner setting a record by laying on nine goals for team-mates. The Reds found the net 47 times altogether, also a new all-time high for any UEFA club competition in a single season.

10: Roberto Firmino (Liverpool)
10: Sadio Mané (Liverpool)
10: Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
