Champions League top scorers 2019/20: Lewandowski leads Haaland

Robert Lewandowski is back ahead of Erling Braut Haaland with 11 goals, a lead of one.

UEFA.com keeps track of the top scorers in the UEFA Champions League this season; if players are level on goals, then the player with the most assists takes precedence.

This article will be updated at the end of every matchnight.

Robert Lewandowski (Bayern München): 11 goals
The Polish international struck on the first five matchdays, and his four against Crvena zvezda came in a competition-record 16 minutes. He then scored again in the round of 16 at Chelsea to go back ahead of Erling Braut Haaland. With 64 goals, he is now level with Karim Benzema in fourth in the competition’s all-time rankings and topped the group-stage table for the second year running.

Erling Braut Haaland (Salzburg/Borussia Dortmund): 10 goals
The 19-year-old had an extraordinary debut group stage with Salzburg, his eight goals (including two penalties) coming in 374 minutes of football, with an assist thrown in. Then made history by becoming the first player to score for two clubs in the same UEFA Champions League season (group stage onward) with his double for Dortmund against Paris.

Watch Haaland’s group stage-debut hat-trick

Serge Gnabry (Bayern München): 6 goals
A definite theme for the former Arsenal man; four goals in London against Tottenham and two more, also in the English capital, against Chelsea. He also has an assist with his goals coming in 467 minutes.

Dries Mertens (Napoli): 6 goals
Mertens converted a penalty in the 4-0 win over Genk that took Napoli through to add to his four previous goals and one assist. He struck again in the last 16 against Barcelona before an injury ended his first leg display; his minute tally is 496.

Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur): 6 goals
Spurs’ campaign has been up and down, but captain Kane has kept scoring in his 450 minutes on the pitch: two from the penalty spot then two from open play against Crvena zvezda and another pair in the comeback versus Olympiacos that clinched progress.

Kylian Mbappé (Paris Saint-Germain): 5 goals
Mbappé also produced three assists and has reached the tally in only 420 minutes.

The now-injured South Korean forward has registered five times in his last three UEFA Champions League outings, and has also produced an assist in his 340 minutes of game time.

Memphis Depay (Lyon): 5 goals
His late equaliser against Leipzig to send Lyon through was his fifth strike of the group stage, from 394 minutes of action.

Mauro Icardi (Paris Saint-Germain): 5 goals
Mbappé isn’t the only Paris player to manage five, though Icardi has not matched him for assists in his 401 minutes.
