The 2017-18 Champions League has come to an end, and the race to see who will finish as the tournament's top goalscorer has produced a familiar winner.

Cristiano Ronaldo was last season's top scorer with 12 goals as Real Madrid clinched their second Champions League title in a row and he narrowly edged out long-time rival Lionel Messi, who scored 11.

The likes of Paris Saint-Germain's Edinson Cavani, Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski and the precocious Kylian Mbappe were also among the contenders last term.

Ronaldo ended the Champions League season with 15 goals in 11 games, despite not scoring as Real Madrid beat Bayern Munich in the semi-finals, and then Liverpool in the final.

Liverpool trio Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane share second place with 10 goals apiece, with the latter having scored his side's goal in the final in Kiev. 

Roma striker Edin Dzeko shares fifth place after his strike in the Stadio Olimpico proved insufficient to pull off a famous comeback against Liverpool in the semi-finals.

Lionel Messi finished the campaign on six. The Barcelona star took his tally to 100 Champions League goals with a double in the last-16 second leg against Chelsea, but he drew a blank as his side were stunned by Roma in the quarter-finals.
