Ronaldo reigns as top scorer: Football's 2023 stats unveiled, team and individual statistics across Europe's leagues

Posted : 01 January 2024

At the age of 37, Cristiano Ronaldo has once again demonstrated his goal-scoring prowess, clinching the title of the world's top scorer in 2023. The seasoned striker netted an impressive 54 goals across all competitions, with 44 for Al Nassr and 10 for the Portugal national team.


This achievement marks the fourth time in Ronaldo's illustrious career that he has secured the top scorer position in a calendar year, with previous records of 69 goals in 2013, 61 in 2012, and 61 in 2014. However, Lionel Messi holds the all-time record with a staggering 91 goals in 2012.


In terms of team performances, Manchester City led the top five leagues in points, accumulating 93 during the year. Following closely were Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, both with 88 points, and Inter Milan with 87. On the defensive front, Barcelona stood out by keeping a clean sheet 22 times, the highest among teams in the top five leagues, followed by Inter (21), Juventus (20), Nice, and Real Madrid (19 each).


Individual statistics revealed Joao Palhinha as the leader in yellow cards (17) and tackles (156) across the top five leagues. Erling Haaland, on the other hand, recorded the highest number of missed chances (35), surpassing Robert Lewandowski with 30. Bruno Fernandes topped the charts in creating situations (133) and creating good scoring opportunities (31, two more than Trent Alexander-Arnold).

Mohamed Salah achieved a rare feat by being the only player with at least 15 goals (24) and 15 assists (15) in the top five leagues, reminiscent of Thierry Henry's accomplishment in 2003.


Bayern Munich claimed the team crown in dribbles with a total of 544. Toni Kroos displayed precision in long passes, delivering 230, the highest in the top five leagues, with an 85.8% success rate.
