Ligue 1 - Paris St Germain v Troyes - Parc des Princes, Paris, France - October 29, 2022 Paris St Germain's Lionel Messi celebrates scoring their second goal.

The 10 players with the most goals & assists in Europe in 2022-23: Messi…

Most attacking players either create goals or score goals – but stars from PSG, Manchester City and Napoli are among those that do both.

We’ve compiled a list of the top 10 players from Ligue 1, the Bundesliga, Premier League, La Liga and Serie A in terms of their combined goals and assist contributions.

We doubt you’ll be too surprised at the identity of number one…

10. Randal Kolo Muani (29)

Randal Kolo Muani has been a lot of fun to watch for Eintracht Frankfurt this season.

The 24-year-old France international has responded brilliantly to missing that chance in the World Cup final. He ended the year with 15 goals and 14 assists in just 32 Bundesliga appearances this season.

Don’t be surprised to see him move this summer.

=7. Antoine Griezmann (30)

Having reinvented himself as a midfielder during the World Cup, Griezmann’s days as an attacking fulcrum seemed numbered.

But the France international has enjoyed a fine season for Atletico Madrid, with 15 goals and 15 assists helping Diego Simeone’s side reach the Champions League once more.


=7. Robert Lewandowski (30)

A force of nature at Bayern Munich, Lewandowski has carried that form to Spain as he helped Barcelona regain the La Liga title.

While their defence received much of the plaudits, the Poland international notched 23 goals and seven assists for his new side. Not bad.

=7. Victor Osimhen (30)

Manchester United are said to be weighing up a move for Osimhen and it’s easy to see why. Napoli have been electric this season and he has been their main source of goals.

The 24-year-old has scored 25 goals as well as provided five assists so far. He helped Napoli wrap up the Scudetto before the spring and was majorly missed in their Champions League exit to AC Milan.


6. Mohamed Salah (31)

Liverpool missed out on Champions League football despite a late-season resurgence putting pressure on Manchester United and Newcastle, but Salah still performed admirably.

With 19 goals and 12 assists, the Egypt international underlined his class – and gave the Anfield faithful hope of a resurgence next season.

=4. Lionel Messi (32)

The obituaries were premature; Messi’s first season at PSG was low-key disappointing with just six goals and 14 assists.

Now a World Cup champion, we’ve seen a vintage Messi this season as the Argentine has chalked up 16 goals and 16 assists for the Ligue 1 champions.

It may also be his final season in European football. It’s a thought that fills us with dread.

=4. Alexandre Lacazette (32)

The surprise renaissance of the season; Lacazette overcame the goal-allergy that marred his final years at Arsenal to record 27 strikes and five assists for Lyon.

Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette celebrates after scoring his side's opening goal during the French League One soccer match between Lyon and Monaco at the Groupama stadium, in Decines, near Lyon, France, Friday, May 19, 2023.

3. Harry Kane (33)

Had it not been for a free-scoring Norwegian robot, we’d all be raving about the season Kane is having right now. The Tottenham forward scored 30 goals already, whilst also providing three assists

The England captain ended up matching his career-best tally of 30 Premier League goals, which he notched back in 2017-18. Surely he’ll be considering his options this summer?

2. Kylian Mbappe (34)

Only two players have scored more goals in Europe’s top five leagues than Mbappe.

The PSG superstar has notched 28 goals in Ligue 1 this season and recently became his club’s all-time top goalscorer in the French top flight. Not bad going at the age of 24.

Mbappe also has a further six assists for good measure.

1. Erling Haaland (44)

We’re already running out of words for Haaland’s jaw-dropping start to life in the Premier League.

Forget the sheer number of goals for a second; it’s the variety of his 36 strikes that have left English defenders quivering with fear. He also chipped in with eight assists in City’s title-winning campaign.

He’s also an underrated comedy genius.
