Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo is currently the top scorer at Euro 2020 following five goals in four appearances, despite his side’s exit to Belgium in the round of 16 on Sunday night in Seville, having scored braces against both Hungary and France, as well as the opening goal in his side’s 4-2 defeat to Germany on matchday two in Group F.
Meanwhile, Romelu Lukaku looks like the most realistic player to challenge Ronaldo’s five goals as the Inter Milan and Belgium striker currently sits on three, one fewer than France’s Karim Benzema who exited the competition to Switzerland in the round of 16, following a 3-3 draw after extra time. Lukaku managed a brace against Russia in Group B, as well as the second in a 2-0 victory against Finland in matchday three, but, if the 28-year-old wants to challenge Ronaldo, then his side must realistically progress against a strong looking Italy side in the quarter-finals.
If both Ronaldo and Lukaku tie on goals then the first tiebreaker is the number of assists created by each player, of which Portugal’s Ronaldo has one to his name, compared to Lukaku’s zero. If both players are level on goals and assists then the second tiebreaker will be based on which player has played the least minutes in the competition, which would therefore mean Ronaldo would be the winner having exited Euro 2020 at the round of 16.
