Champions league: After Bayern Munich won the UCL; Check who won the Golden gloves, Golden boot, and Top Assist

Robert Lewandoski has been crowned as this season’s UEFA Champions League golden boot winner after leading Bayern to a historic triumph in which they dropped no point on the road, scoring also in 10 consecutive games before the finals.

The Bavaria star, who has scored 68 Champions League goals in his career, only behind Ronaldo (130), Lionel Messi (115) and Raul Gonzalez (71), hit 15 goals this season as Bayern record their 6th European success.

Second to him was Erling Braut Haaland. The Norwegian scored 10 goals for both Salzburg and Dortmund before they were knocked out by runners up, PSG in the round of 16.

Former Arsenal man, Serge Gnabry scored 9 goals for the European champions, Bayern Munich. Most notably against the Gunners’ London rivals, Chelsea and Tottenham.

Dries Mertens (Napoli), Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City),Harry Kane (Tottenham), Memphis Depay (Lyon) andRaheem Sterling (Manchester City) are all tied at the 4th spot with 6 goals.

Josip Ilicic (Atalanta),Karim Benzema (Real Madrid),Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain),Lautaro Martinez (Inter),Luis Suarez (Barcelona).

Mauro Icardi (Paris Saint-Germain) and Son Heung-Min (Tottenham) finished the season with 5 champions league goals to their names, while it was a rather disappointing campaign for the competitions record scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo who finished with just 4 goals.

A lot of the focus thus far has obviously been drawn to the goalscorers, but those setting them up deserve some praise, too. Angel Di Maria leads the assist kings chart with 6 assists to his name. Finalists, Kylian Mbappe and Robert Lewandowski are both tied at the second spot with 5.

Neymar (PSG), Hakim Ziyech(Ajax), Riyad Mahrez(Manchester City), Lionel Messi and Houssem Aouar(Lyon) completes the list as they are all tied at 4 assists.

The race for the UEFA Champions league 2020 golden glove was a fight to finish, as both Manuel Neuer and Keylor Navas were both tied at 5 clean sheets before the finals, but Kingsley Coman’s lone strike in the finals meant Neuer finished with 6 and topped his counter part to the award.

Jan Oblak(Atletico Madrid) finished the season with 4 cleansheets, while PSG’s second choice goal keeper, Sergio Rico kept 3 clean sheets in all the 3 matches he played this season. Ajax’s Andre Onana also got 3
