In a repeat of last season's UEFA Europa League final, where the Spanish side won on penalties, looked to be heading for a draw after another disappointing performance from Ole Gunnar's Manchester United but summer signing Cristiano Ronaldo linked up with Jesse Lingard to spark jubilant scenes at the end of Old Trafford Stadium.
Portuguese skipper Cristiano Ronaldo scored an injury-time winner as Manchester United came from behind to beat Villarreal in an action-packed Champions League Group F contest, their first ever win from the Unai Emery men in the last five encounters. Following his second goal from three games, below is how the UEFA Champions League golden boot table stands;
1. Sebastian Haller - Ajax
2. Robert Lewandowski - Bayern Munich
The Polish is still a force to reckon in the UCL this season scoring incredible 4 goals so far this season.
3. Nkunku - RB Leipzig
The Bundesliga star man is currently joint second place with Lewandowski on 4 goals from 3 games.
4. Mohammed Salah - Liverpool
The Egyptian has scored 3 goals in as many games for the Reds this season.
5. Adeyemi - RB Salzburg
The teenage sensation has 2 goals in the UCL this campaign.
6. Vanaken - Club Brugge
The star player has 2 Champions League goals this season.
7. C. Ronaldo - Man United
The world class star player has so far scored 2 Champions League goals this season.
8. Roberto Firmino - Liverpool
The Brazilian closes the top eight with his 2 strikes of the season
Do you think Ronaldo will extend his tally and snatch the golden boot once again by the end of the 2021/22 UCL campaign?
