Diego Costa’s fine form has seen him compete with top strikers in Europe as the race for the Golden Shoe is beginning to take shape.

Kalev’s Yevgeni Kabayev leads the way on 25 points, but is closely followed by Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Chelsea’s Diego Costa is currently 6th on the table with 20 points.

Points for the Golden Shoe table are calculated by the amount of goals multiplied by a difficulty factor—determined by the strength of the league in which the goals are scored.

Strikes in the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and Serie A are worth two points, which explains why Aubameyang’s haul of 12 goals yields 24 points and why Costa’s goal haul of 10 equates to 20 points.
