Although the 2021/22 Ligue 1 is only starting, the race for this season's Golden Boot has been in place for quite a while. Here's how things stand at the moment.
Current Golden Boot top 5:
2. Thomas Lehne Olsen (Lillestrom) — 12 goals — 18 points
If we are talking about players which are of specific interest to the PSG fans, Mauro Icardi is our only horse in the race at the moment.
The Argentine has scored two goals in the first two games of the season, meaning that he currently has four points.
Our other forwards are yet to open their accounts. Kylian Mbappe has featured in both league matches but has failed to score.
Leo Messi and Neymar joined training later than the rest of the group and still getting ready for the season.
As for the competitors from the big leagues, Bruno Fernandes has accumulated six points after netting a hat-trick against Leeds United. Erling Haaland and Karim Benzema both recorded braces in their first match of the season and sit with four points, tied with Icardi.
Robert Lewandowski, the winner from the previous year, has scored one goal so far.
