The ranking of European top scorers


By: Manu Tournoux

Eleventh assessment of the season for the ranking of European top scorers. We find the scorers who shook the nets in Germany, England, Austria, Belgium, Scotland, Spain, France, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Switzerland, Turkey and Ukraine. As for several weeks, first place goes to Harry Kane. The English striker, who already has 18 goals in 13 matches, had a complicated Saturday. Swept by Eintracht Frankfurt with his Bayern Munich team (5-1), he remained silent and saw the competition coming back at full speed.

In second position, we find Santiago Gimenez who displays solid statistics with 18 goals in 15 matches. The Feyenoord scorer shone again against Volendam (3-1) by snatching victory at the end of the match. Still in the Netherlands, Vangelis Pavlidis completes the podium. The Greek striker from AZ Alkmaar saw the match against Nijmegen (2-1 defeat) end after its interruption a month and a half ago following Bas Dost’s heart attack. Decisive in this match, he also scored a double this weekend against Almere and is also credited with 18 goals in 15 matches.

Banza and Bellingham advance

At the foot of the podium, Serhou Guirassy is still slipping with his 16 goals in 12 matches. The Guinean this time remained silent against Bayer Leverkusen (1-1) despite a notable contribution for his team. Behind him, we find Kylian Mbappé. Despite Paris Saint-Germain’s 2-1 victory against FC Nantes, the French striker could not find the fault. His record, however, remains solid with 15 goals in 14 matches. It’s a little better than Lautaro Martinez. The Argentinian now has 14 goals in 15 matches following a goal against Udinese with Inter Milan (4-0).

With identical statistics, Erling Haaland is seventh. The Norwegian striker did not play in Manchester City’s 2-1 win over Luton Town. Slightly behind with 14 goals in 16 matches, Mateo Cassiera was decisive against FK Pari NN (1-1) and remains in eighth position. Former face of Ligue 1, Congolese Simon Banza is credited with 13 goals in 13 matches with Braga. Against Vizela (3-1), he also scored a nice double. Finally, Jude Bellingham snatches tenth place. The Real Madrid midfielder has scored 12 goals in 14 matches including a new pawn against Real Betis Balompié (1-1). Mauro Icardi (Galatasaray), Edin Dzeko (Fenerbahçe) and Kevin Denkey (Cercle Brugge) also scored 12 goals but miss out on tenth place, as they have played more matches than the Englishman.

Anders Dreyer (Anderlecht), Mohamed Amoura (Union Saint-Gilloise), Aboubakary Koita (Saint-Trond), Mame Baba Thiam (Kayserispor) and Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) have 11 goals and fail to reach the top 10. Loïs Openda (RB Leipzig), Luuk de Jong (PSV Eindhoven), Heung-min Son (Tottenham) and Kasper Dolberg (Anderlecht) follow with their 10 goals. Jonas Wind (Wolfsburg), Jarrod Bowen (West Ham), Borja Mayoral (Getafe), Sem Steijn (Twente), Antoine Griezmann (Atlético), Viktor Gyökeres (Sporting CP), Jonathan Okita (Zurich), Jean-Pierre Nsamé (Young Boys de Berne), Matt O’Riley (Celtic Glasgow) and Abdallah Sima (Glasgow Rangers) are a little further behind with 9 goals.
