The Portuguese and the Englishman have each scored 43 goals in 2017, with only Cavani, Lewandowski, and Messi finding the net more.

As the pre-match Champions League anthem fades from the speakers at the Bernabéu on Tuesday evening, two of Europe’s most potent marksmen will go head-to-head. Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane will both take to the turf having scored 43 goals this calendar year.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund) has scored the same amount, Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) and Edinson Cavani (PSG) have scored one more, and Lionel Messi (Barcelona) occupies his own stratosphere 15 goals ahead.

Ronaldo scored first LaLiga goal against Getafe

Despite Messi’s significant lead, Ronaldo and particularly Kane arrive in rich form. The Portugal international scored his first goal of the LaLiga season against Getafe on Saturday, ending an uncharacteristically-long barren streak. But beyond domestic competition, Ronaldo had already scored four goals in two matches in Group H of the Champions League.
