As in each edition, the main individual award goes to the top scorer in the competition, a title that the Frenchman won last season Karim Benzema con 15 goals. This year, the Frenchman, with physical problems, did not score in the entire first phase and, although he added three goals in the round of 16 against Liverpool and scored again in the first leg against Chelsea, with only 4 targets He is ruled out of the fight.
The leading scorer in this edition of the Champions League is Erling Haaland (Manchester City), who already won this award in 2021 with Borussia Dortmund, with 12 goals, with which he scored in the quarterfinals in the Bayern field. The Norwegian caresses his second award since his greatest pursuers were eliminated in the round of 16: Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), second con 8 as manyy Kylian Mbappe (PSG), third con 7.
