BENZEMA MADE A CHRISTIAN: This was the table of the top scorers in the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League

Like Cristiano Ronaldo in his prime with Real Madrid, Karim Benzema managed to become UEFA Champions League champion by leading the competition in goalscoring.

Despite failing to score in the final against Liverpool, the French legend had already secured his place as top scorer in the current edition of the Champions League since before the duel that was played in Paris. His brutal performances against PSG, Chelsea and Manchester City allowed him to reach 15 goals in the competition and thus surpass the quota of 13 goals achieved by Robert Lewandowski.

By the way, it is the third consecutive season in which the European Cup scoring leader is not between Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi. Karim Benzema joined Lewandowski and Haaland as the only strikers to have been able to earn this individual distinction in the era of the most consistent footballers of all time.


  • Karim Benzema (Real Madrid): 15 goals in 12 games.
  • Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich): 13 goals in 10 games.
  • Sebastien Haller (Ajax): 11 goals in 8 games.
  • Mohamed Salah (Liverpool): 8 goals in 13 games.
  • Christopher Nkunku (RB Leipzig): 7 goals in 6 games.
  • Riyad Mahrez (Manchester City): 7 goals in 12 games.
  • Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United): 6 goals in 7 games.
  • Kylian Mbappé (PSG): 6 goals in 8 games.
  • Darwin Nunez (Benfica): 6 goals in 10 games.
  • Leroy Sané (Bayern Munich): 6 goals in 10 games.
  • Arnaut Danjuma (Villarreal): 6 goals in 11 games.

Undefeated Data. Cristiano Ronaldo (7) and Lionel Messi (6) are the players who have been leaders in scoring the most times in the UEFA Champions League. Eternal Legacy.

Did you know..? Cristiano Ronaldo (140), Lionel Messi (125), Karim Benzema (86) and Robert Lewandowski (86) are the players with the most goals in UEFA Champions League history. The roll of honor in the highest club competition in the world.
