Cristiano aims to tie-up the Golden Shoe this Saturday

AS AS 13/05/2014 Carlos Forjanes

Cristiano is looking to win the Golden Shoe outright this Saturday in the final league match of the season, against Espanyol. The Portuguese star knows Luis Súarez can’t move ahead of him, because the two are tied on 31 goals and the Liverpool striker finished his campaign last weekend, but Cristiano is desperate to be the continent's top-scorer on his own. The only possible threat is Messi, but he’s three goals back, on 28.

The muscle fatigue Cristiano was suffering from, and which caused him to come off in the 7th minute of the Valladolid-Real Madrid match, has improved and he plans to play from the off against Aguirre’s side in order to get the goal that will see him take the Golden Shoe outright.

If Cristiano does come up empty-handed and Messi scores a hat-trick then the Golden Shoe would be shared between three players, something that has never happened.

Since the Golden Boot, now Shoe, was created in 1967-68 there has only been a two way tie twice. In 1990 it was shared between Hugo Sánchez and Stoichkov (38 goals) and in 2005 between Henry and Forlán (25).

If Ronaldo wins it this would be his third shoe. He got his first with Manchester United in 2007-08 when he scored 31 and his second with Real Madrid, in 2010-11, with his best ever league tally of 40. Unless Messi goes goal-crazy on the final day against Atleti, Cristiano is guaranteed to be Golden Shoe when he plays in the Champions League final Lisbon, it just remains to be seen whether he’s sharing it with Luis Suárez.
