2020 is finally over! The rollercoaster calendar year has come to a wrap, with Thursday, December 31st being the final day of what had been a difficult 12 months.

However, 2020 wasn't a bad year for all footballers. In fact, many reached several milestones, standing head and shoulders above the competition in terms of goalscoring and creativity, just to name a few.

The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Kevin De Bruyne, and Robert Lewadowski enjoyed an incredible year in the stats department. Here's a look at the players with the most goals, assists, and clean sheets across Europe's top five leagues in 2020.

Who scored the most goals in 2020?

That honor goes to Cristiano Ronaldo. Yes, the Portuguese ace continued to outscore everyone in Europe's top five leagues even at the age of 35. However, he took first place by an inch, with his tally of 33 goals over the last 12 months narrowly beating out Lewandowski's tally of 32 strikes.

As for the Premier League, no one outscored Mohamed Salah in 2020, with the Egyptian superstar netting 23 times to help his club lift the 2019/20 EPL crown and finish the calendar year on top of the table. Meanwhile, in Ligue 1, Kylian Mbappe took the crown with his tally of 19 goals.

As for Cristiano's eternal rival Lionel Messi, he only managed 19 goals in what was a difficult year for the Argentine. Nonetheless, that was enough for him to finish 2020 as the top scorer in La Liga.

Who had the most assists in 2020?

This prize goes to Thomas Muller, with the German playing an influential role in Bayern Munich's treble. In the Bundesliga alone, he set up 17 goals. That is just one more than Messi's tally of 16, with Leo coming in second – what he lacked in goals, he made up for in assists.

Kevin De Bruyne comes in third with 15 assists, the most by any player in the Premier League. In the Serie A and Ligue 1 respectively, Hakan Calhanoglu (14) and Angel Di Maria (12) grabbed the top spots while Liverpool's Andrew Robertson (12) is the only defender to make the top 10.

Who had the most clean sheets in 2020?

Jan Oblak is the undisputed king in this department, registering a whopping 18 clean sheets in 2020. However, he narrowly beat Man City's Ederson, the goalkeeper with the most clean sheets this season, with the Brazilian managing 17 shutouts over the last 12 months. Courtois came in third with 16.
