UCL Top Scorers In Each Season Since 1992

The 2021/2022 UEFA Champions League season began this week, and to be honest, we were really thrilled by it.

One man who stole the show however was Sabastien Haller. The Ajax striker netted four goals as his side thrashed Sporting Lisbon 5-1. Haller has now become the 16th player in the competition’s history to have scored four goals in a single match.

Haller’s four goals also means that he is the competition’s top scorer at this early stage; and should he continue with his fine form, then he might as well win the Champions League Golden boot.

Well, considering the number of stars in the Champions League, it may seem quite ambitious to think Haller will end up as the top scorer; but then, when you look down the years, you will discover that some of the most unlikeliest players ended up as top scorers in the Champions League. If Ronald Coleman who was a defender won it while playing for Barcelona as a defender in 1994, and Erling Haaland won it last season ahead of the likes of Messi, Ronaldo, Lewandowski and the rest, while won’t Haller go for it?

It is therefore with the above in mind that we shall take a look at the competition’s top scorers in each season since 1992 as revealed by Givemesport.

So without further ado, let’s have a look;

1992/93: Romario | PSV Eindhoven – 7 goals
