Benfica's Pizzi came off the bench to score his sixth goal of the campaign as the Portuguese side drew 2-2 away to Standard Liege.
His six strikes have placed him at the top of the scoring charts going into the knockout phase, moving ahead of Yusuf Yazıcı thanks to his two assists.
Just like Pizzi, Yazıcı has scored six for LOSC Lille, who are one of the two French clubs in the last 32.
The two players are closely followed by a pack of five players, all on five, and it promises to be an exciting race for the golden boot going into the next round.
