Who finished top in 2019-20?

Robert Lewandowski was the top-scorer in last season’s Champions League, his 15 strikes instrumental in Bayern Munich winning the competition.

The German giants picked up their sixth Champions League trophy after beating Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in the final of the tournament, with Kingsley Coman netting the winning goal early in the second half.

He was followed by Haaland with 10 strikes for both RB Salzburg and Dortmund, and Bayern team-mate Serge Gnabry’s nine strikes placing him third.
