Well played, Robert.

Ronaldo was the only other player in 2020 to score 40 or more goals, with Lukaku’s haul of 35 enough to secure him the bronze medal in terms of finding the back of the net.

Messi and Muller are the two frontrunners in the assist chart, the playmaking geniuses notching 24 of them across all competitions for Barcelona and Bayern last year.

De Bruyne was the only other player to supply 20 or more assists, while Mbappe came agonisingly close to the landmark with 19 to his name.
