The 18 Top Scorers in a Single Season in the Champions League

Top Scorers in a Single Season in the Champions League: Manchester City of England won the Champions League 2022/23 by defeating Inter Milan from Italy in the final. The only goal of the match was scored by Rodri from Manchester City in the 68th minute, leading them to a 1-0 victory.

The tournament’s top scorer is Erling Haaland from Norway. He is close to breaking the record set by Lionel Messi, who scored 14 goals in a single season of the Champions League while playing for Barcelona in 2011-2012. However, Haaland couldn’t score in the final, so he couldn’t break the record, but he still became one of the top players with the most goals in a single season.

Haaland’s main goal now is to surpass Cristiano Ronaldo’s record. Ronaldo, who played for Real Madrid, scored 15 goals in the 2017-2018 season, 16 goals in the 2015-2016 season, and an impressive 17 goals in the 2013-2014 season. Ronaldo’s 17 goals in 2014 are actually the highest number of goals scored by a player in a single season in the entire history of the Champions League.
