After playing 8 game this season in the French Ligue 1, the Golden Boot Race took a new turn as Paris Saint Germain's Kylian Mbappe got a replacement on top of the log after firing blanks in PSG's Outing against Montpellier.
Nice's Gouiri took the bull by the horn with a wonderful opener in the 15th minute of action in their 3-0 win over St. Etienne. His effort shoot him pass PSG's Striker, Mbappe by a goal as he now top the Golden Boot log with 5 goals in 7 games.
Kylian is 2nd in the queue after his inability to score a goal against Montpellier. He has 4 goals already with 3 assists trailing only Gouiri by a goal and Strasbourg's Ajorque by 1 assist.
Clermont's Rashani is also a major contender as he has pulled 4 goals already this season trailing the leader by just 1. He remain on course to challenge for the Golden Boot especially after overtaking Teammate, Bayo who is currently on 3 goals and 2 assists.
Former Man United Midfielder, Herrera has been a helping hand to Paris Saint Germain this season with 3 goals and 2 assists which makes it a great feat for a Midfielder in just 8 games. He will be looking for more to force great challenge for the top price.
The World is still waiting to see Messi's first PSG goal, although not in action in their last League game but could make a return for their next game. It's been Kylian Mbappe who has dominated the individual award for goals in previous seasons, do you think Nice's Gouiri can surprise us by winning it this season or better still give Messi the benefit of doubt that he can easily join the log and yet win the award. Time will surely guide us. Follow for more Ligue 1 story.
