It is surprising to know that none of the clubs that won the league title in the major European leagues had the top scorer from their end.
Cristiano Ronaldo missed out on the Pichichi which is the golden boot in Spain, yet his side Real Madrid secured the Spanish La Liga trophy for the first time in five years.
Meanwhile, Lionel Messi who won the top scorer in Spain couldn’t help Barcelona to lay their hands on the La Liga title.
The same scenario happened in five other major European leagues: Italy, Portugal, Germany, England and France.
In England Harry Kane of Tottenham won the goal king award whereas Chelsea were crowned league champions.
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang beat off competition from Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich to win the top scorer in the Bundesliga, but in the end it was Bayern Munich that continued their dominance in the league.
In Italy Eden Dzeko’s goals for AS Roma couldn’t translate into league title, as Juventus added yet another Serie A crown to their trophy cabinet.
Das Bost scored 34 league goals for Sporting Lisbon to win the golden boot, however it was Benfica that won the Portuguese Primeira Liga.
In France Edson Cavani’s goals were not enough to inspire PSG to retain the Ligue 1 title as they surrendered to AS Monaco.
