New update on the European top scorers ranking with some changes. Robert Lewandowski maintains his pace while Mohamed Salah makes a remarkable entrance.
The European top scorers ranking returns this Monday for the fifth review of the season. This one concerns the scorers who have been active in Germany, England, Austria, Belgium, Scotland, Spain, France, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Switzerland, Turkey and Ukraine. And in the first place, a small change with the appearance of Arthur Cabral. Author of his 12th goal in 11 matches, the Brazilian striker shone again yesterday. Against Lugano (2-0), he scored and confirmed a little more that he is an exceptional striker. His recent call-up with Brazil is only a reward for his successful performances.
The second place is therefore held by the former Lille player Michael Frey. The Swiss striker was mute in yesterday’s 1-1 clash between Antwerp and Brugge, and his tally remains stuck at 12 goals in 12 games. The podium is completed by a regular of this ranking, namely Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker took part in Bayern’s big victory against Hoffenheim (4-0) and now has 10 goals in 9 Bundesliga matches. A nice dynamic found by the Pole.
Mohamed Salah’s sensational entrance
He also walks on water and connects the goals with Liverpool. Author of a resounding hat-trick against Manchester United (5-0), the Egyptian winger continues his hot start to the season and enters directly in fourth place in the ranking. He has no less than 10 goals in 9 games. He is ahead of the German striker Karim Adeyemi who scored twice against Sturm Graz (4-1) and is now in fifth place with 10 goals in 11 games.
Sixth-placed Russian striker Gamid Agalarov helped Ufa earn a point against Rubin Kazan (1-1). The 21-year-old striker now has 10 goals in 12 games. Erling Braut Haaland, who is out injured for a long time, is still in the ranking this week with a staggering 9 goals in 6 games. Karim Benzema, who did not score in Real Madrid’s 2-1 win over Barcelona, is in eighth place with 9 goals in 9 games.
He is one step ahead of Paul Onuachu of Genk, who did not score in the 3-0 defeat against Gent. Viktor Tsygankov closes the top 10 with his 9 goals in 12 games. The right winger of Dynamo Kiev launched his team during the 2-0 victory against Dnipro-1. Just behind him are Ciro Immobile (Lazio), Jelle Vossen (Zulte Waregem), Assan Ceesay (Zurich), Makhtar Gueye (Ostend), Deniz Undav (Union St. Gallen), Patrik Schick (Bayer), Dante Vanzeir (Union St. Gallen), all of whom have scored 8 goals and are in the hunt.
