Cape Town - Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo and Liverpool striker Luis Suarez are joint winners of the European Golden Shoe after both scoring 31 goals for their respective clubs.

Lionel Messi, who won the award last year, had to settle with third spot this season after only scoring 28 goals for Barcelona this campaign. 

Suarez was in danger of missing out on the prestigious individual award as Ronaldo still had one game to add to his tally at the weekend, but the Portuguese forward eventually missed his side's victory over Espanyol due to injury, reports Goal.com.

Both Messi and fourth-placed Diego Costa failed to find the net in Barca's 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid, while Torino star Ciro Immobile did not score either in his side's 2-2 draw against Fiorentina.

Manchester City's Yaya Toure is the only midfielder on the list after scoring an impressive 20 goals for the English Premiership champions.
