Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski, Kylian Mbappe and Harry Kane each finished the season with the most goals in their respective leagues, but there were a number of talents that did break onto the scene and made a run at those five elite scorers.
Lewandowski finished atop Europe with 41 goals in 2020/21, breaking Gerd Muller's Bundesliga record in a single season. The Bayern star helped propel his side to their seventh consecutive German title since joining the club from Dortmund.
