Topps Official 07-08-2020

Ever since UEFA Champions League season was put on hold in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak, fans have been eagerly waiting for the action. 

But the wait is over! With four of the eight rounds of 16 ties concluded the competition is about to return on Friday 7th of August.

The season so far has been nothing but purely awesome! And this season started with a bang! Till now the UEFA Champions League this season has delivered goals 344 in just 108 games.

Bayern's Robert Lewandowski is the top scorer at the moment, he has scored 11 times in this season's competition that's one more than eliminated Dortmund's Erling Braut Haaland and five more than the other most prolific marksmen left in the competition like Napoli's Dries Mertens and Bayern's Serge Gnabry, who have scored six each.

In this season Lewandowski could become the first Polish player to finish as top scorer in Europe's top club competition. The last player to finish as top scorer in the competition while playing for a German club was Werder Bremen's Wynton Rufer in 1993/94, whose eight goals meant he shared first place with Barcelona's Ronald Koeman. The last Bayern player to be the European Cup's top scorer was Dieter Hoeness, with seven goals in 1981/82.
