The national team break is in full swing and the club competitions will be slowly finishing after the break. How will the top scorers in the Top 5 leagues clash?
There is not a single La Liga or Bundesliga representative among the top five scorers. In Spain, Robert Lewandowski of Barcelona is the top scorer, and in Germany, Nicklas Füllkrug of Werder Bremen scored 15 goals.
In the Premier League, however, they would be in fourth place with this number, and in Ligue 1 even in sixth place. In La Liga, Enes Unal of Getafe is second (13), while in the Bundesliga, Grifo of Freiburg, Thuram of Mönchengladbach and Nkunku of Leipzig have the second highest number (12).
5. Ivan Toney – Brentford – 16 goals
A luxurious number of goals considering Brentford are not one of the Premier League’s big teams. Thanks to Toney’s sixteen goals in particular, The Bees are eighth in the table.
4. Folarin Balogun – Reims – 17 goals
Alexandre Lacazette – Lyon – 17 goals
Wissam Ben Yedder – Monaco – 17 goals
Consistently in fourth place we find footballers from Ligue 1. Arsenal’s young talent on loan at Reims Folarin Balogun has 17 goals and his first year out of England is going well.
Long-time striker and most recently captain Alexandre Lacazette has also arrived in Ligue 1 from Arsenal. The 31-year-old has returned to Lyon from where he left for England and picked up where he left off. He scored 17 goals in the current campaign, and netted 28 goals in the 2016/17 campaign, after which he left for Arsenal.
Wissam Ben Yedder has the same number of goals. The experienced 32-year-old striker netted 25 goals last season and is now on course to score the same number. He scores goals regularly, having scored less than 11 league goals only once since 2013.
3. Kylian Mbappé – PSG – 19 goals
Jonathan David – Lille – 19 goals
More footballers share third place and again they come from Ligue 1. Nineteen goals were scored by Kylian Mbappé, who also supported his tally with 4 assists.
The 23-year-old Canadian striker is on the verge of a move to a big club.
2. Harry Kane – Tottenham – 21 goals
Victor Osimhen – Napoli – 21 goals
In second place, we move on to England and Italy. Harry Kane is a fantastically reliable goalscorer who scores like a charm even when the team is not doing well. He already has 21 goals to his name, keeping Spurs in fourth place and guaranteeing the Champions League.
Victor Osimhen, on the other hand, is playing with great euphoria. The Nigerian striker has netted 21 goals, is the top scorer in Serie A and is also the main reason why Napoli are rolling Italy and sovereignly leading the table.
1. Erling Haaland – Manchester City – 28 goals
Erling Haaland is, quite expectedly, in first place. The robot from another world, as he is often nicknamed by fans, has scored an incredible 28 goals in 26 games. By the end of the season, he will probably have no problem keeping the top spot.
