Messi vs Dost: Europe’s Top Scorers Come Face To Face In Lisbon

Dutch international Dost has created a big reputation for himself as a ruthless finisher, hitting 32 goals for Heerenveen in 2011/12, 16 in 21 outings for Wolfsburg in 2014/15, and last season a whopping 34 goals in just 31 games. That record was enough for Dost to claim second in the Golden Boot competition of Europe's major leagues, a title won by Messi and his 37 goals. However those figures do not represent how both forwards ended the campaign with a goals-to-game ratio of 1.1. With the new season now well underway, Messi has launched ahead of his rival by notching nine goals in six outings, leaving Dost behind on a mere four strikes across seven matches.
