Cavani is out of the first place! I REPEAT: CAVANI. IS OUT. OF THE FIRST PLACE. Get the wives and kids safe, the apocalypse is close. Here's the ten best goalscorers in Europe's top 5 leagues after this weekend!  Note: This ranking only takes the top 5 leagues' - France, England, Italy, Germany and Spain - league games into account.  Goals this week: 2 (vs Real Sociedad)  Total league goals: 29 League games played: 29 Goals/game ratio: 1.00 When Barcelona is in a bad shape, he's always here....

Anthony Modeste (1. FC Köln)

Goals this week: 0 (vs Augsburg) 

Total league goals: 23

League games played: 29

Goals/game ratio: 0.79


Despite not scoring against Augsburg this weekend as Köln lost in Augsburg (2-1), Anthony Modeste remains in this top 10 thanks to his goals per game ratio, with 23 in 29 league games this season. 

Romelu Lukaku (Everton)

Goals this week: 1 (vs Burnley) 

Total league goals: 24

League games played: 32

Goals/game ratio: 0.75


Premier League's best goalscorer was back on the scoresheet this weekend with his third in two games as Everton beat Burnley (3-1). 24th goal of the season for the Belgian, who was recently nominated in the shortlist for PFA Player of the Year. 

Luis Suárez (FC Barcelona)

Goals this week: 0 (vs Real Sociedad) 

Total league goals: 24

League games played: 30

Goals/game ratio: 0.8


Third blank game in a row for the Uruguayan, second in La Liga as Barcelona bounced back from two defeats in a row by beating Real Sociedad (3-2). El Pistolero got an assist though, but unfortunately it's quite irrelevant for this ranking. 

Alexandre Lacazette (Olympique Lyonnais)

Goals this week: 0 (vs Bastia) 

Total league goals: 24

League games played: 27

Goals/game ratio: 0.89


Well, Lacazette didn't really have a chance to shine with Lyon this weekend since the game against Bastia was cancelled at half-time due to the stupidness of some "fans". 

Edin Džeko (AS Roma)

Goals this week: 1 (vs Atalanta) 

Total league goals: 25

League games played: 32

Goals/game ratio: 0.78


Saving his team this weekend with an equalizer against Atalanta (1-1), his fifth goals in his last four games of Serie A, Edin Džeko is in a great form currently with Roma. With 25 in 32 league games, he's put his closest contenders to good distance, with Higuain at 23 and Mertens and Icardi at 21 goals. 

Andrea Belotti (Torino FC)

Goals this week: 1 (vs Crotone) 

Total league goals: 25

League games played: 29

Goals/game ratio: 0.86


Best goalscorer in Serie A only thanks to his goals per game ratio, Andrea Belotti keeps up with Džeko's rhythm and also scored his team's only goal against Crotone (1-1). Torino's goleador scored in his last three league games, scoring his way to a well deserved Serie A golden boot. 

Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)

Goals this week: 0 (suspended) 

Total league goals: 24

League games played: 30

Goals/game ratio: 0.8


Suspended this weekend as Bayern drew to Bayer Leverkusen (0-0), Robert Lewandowski preferred to score twice in the last game to make sure he'll be in this ranking this week. Clever. 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund)

Goals this week: 1 (vs Eintracht Frankfurt) 

Total league goals: 26

League games played: 27

Goals/game ratio: 0.96


Mute last week against Bayern, Borussia Dortmund's big boy PEA got back on the scoresheet as Dortmund got the three points against Eintracht Frankfurt (3-1). With 26 goals in 27 league games, he's just on a crazy rhythm this season. Hello Real Madrid. 

Edinson Cavani (Paris Saint-Germain)

Goals this week: 0 (vs Angers) 

Total league goals: 29

League games played: 30

Goals/game ratio: 0.97


At second place, Lionel Me... Wait, what? What's Cavani doing here?


You can't catch a break when Messi's after you. Failing to score against Angers (0-2), Edinson Cavani let go of his first place and his 1 goal per game ratio. Just score a hat-trick in the next game to make things right Edi, seeing you here is very disturbing. 

Lionel Messi (FC Barcelona)

Goals this week: 2 (vs Real Sociedad) 

Total league goals: 29

League games played: 29

Goals/game ratio: 1.00


When Barcelona is in a bad shape, he's always here. Brillant. Scoring goals as he always does. 


In a very difficult game against Real Sociedad for Barcelona after two consecutive defeats, La Pulga saved the day with a brace to ensure Barça the win (3-2). His third brace in the last four La Liga games. And that, kids, is how you get back in the first place of the European topscorers ranking.
