Ronaldo, Pedri Still Leading In 2 Separate Categories As Euro 2020 Nears Its Conclusion On Sunday.

Italy and England are the two Euro 2020 finalists that will contest for the title on Sunday.

But before the final, let's look at some players who are currently the leaders in terms of most goals scored or conceded, plus other categories.

Most Saves (Player) - Yann Sommer.

The streets will never forget a 32-year old goalkeeper (Sommer) who almost led Switzerland to the semifinals of the Euros.

With 21 saves made, Sommer ranks top, followed by Kasper Schmeichel (18), and Bushchan (15).

Most Goals (Team) - Spain.

Spain may not have a striker as deadly as Fernando Torres or David Villa, but that hasn't stopped them from finding the back of the net with relative ease.

Spain scored a total of 13 goals which is the highest before their elimination, with Denmark (12), Italy (12), England (10) and Belgium (9) making up the top five.

Least Goals Conceded (Team) - England.

The defensive partnership of Walker, Maguire, Stones and Shaw are clearly paying off, with only one goal conceded by this backline. 

Final opponents Italy has let in 3 goals which is the second least in the tournament.

Most Assists (Player) - Steven Zuber.

Switzerland midfielder Zuber currently tops the list of players with most assists (4), although Luke Shaw who has 3 to his name can leapfrog him, with the English player having one more game to play on Sunday.

Distance Covered (km) - Pedri Gonzalez.

Barça ace Pedri has covered more distance (76.1km) than midfield veteran Jorginho (72.3km) despite being just 18 years old at the moment.

Pedri has even been compared to Andres Iniesta, and Barcelona will be keen to tie him down to a new contract to avoid losing him for free when his current deal expires next summer.

6. Most Goals (Player) - Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo is still the top scorer with 5 goals and one assist while Patrik Schick is second with 5 goals but zero assist.

Harry Kane who scored his 4th goal of the competition yesterday can still surpass Ronaldo if he scores twice against Italy.

Which of these records is most likely to be surpassed?
