Mohamed Salah played the full 90 but Liverpool did not score in a 0-0 draw with Stoke City, which sets the Golden Boot race for a photo finish. Salah is in the lead with 31 goals, but he only has two Premier League games left - against Chelsea and Brighton. Tied for second are Lionel Messi (Barcelona) and Ciro Immobile (Lazio), who both have 29.

Messi has five games left, while Immobile has four. Meanwhile, Robert Lewandwoski has 28 goals but would need at least 3 goals in his last two Bundesliga games to have a chance of winning the trophy. The Polish striker was rested as Bayern Munich won 4-1 against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Barcelona have games against Deportivo, Real Madrid, Villarreal, Levante, and Real Sociedad left on the schedule.
