The 21 Players With More Goal Involvements Than Cristiano Ronaldo This Season

The 21 Players With More Goal Involvements Than Cristiano Ronaldo This Season

Cristiano Ronaldo's response to Lionel Messi winning the Ballon d'Or has been nothing short of incredible but there are still 21 players with more goal involvements than the 35-year old this term.

Since December 2, the date where Messi moved ahead of Ronaldo on six Ballon d'Or wins, Ronaldo has displayed his elite mentality but scoring 14 goals in a two-month period.

But because of what was a pretty underwhelming start to the season by CR7's standards, Ronaldo sits in 22nd when it comes to goals and assists for players in Europe's top 15 leagues - and plenty of the players above him might come as a surprise.

Ronaldo has 26 overall goal involvements thanks to his 23 goals and three assists, with 19-year old Norwegian boy-wonder Erling Haaland leading the way with 44 (36 goals and eight assists) for Red Bull Salzburg and Borussia Dortmund.
