The top 10 scorers in Europe’s big five leagues in 2020: CR7, Haaland, no Messi

Quick Reads

Boruusia Dortmund, Juventus and Lazio frontmen are among Europe’s most prolific goalscorers in 2020.

The football season has been interrupted by the lockdown, but three players have still been able to reach double figures this year.

We’ve looked at the top 10 goalscorers in Europe’s big five leagues since the start of 2020.

10. Fabio Quagliarella

Quagliarella finished the 2018-19 season as Serie A’s top scorer with 26 goals, beating the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Krzysztof Piatek.

The 37-year-old has shown no signs of slowing down in 2020, scoring six goals in seven league appearances at a rate of one every 101 minutes.

9. Sergio Aguero

Manchester City’s all-time record goalscorer continues to show his worth for Pep Guardiola’s team this season.

Aguero scored six goals in his first three Premier League games in 2020 but has failed to find the back of the net in his last four league games.

8. Ante Rebic 

The AC Milan forward failed to score in the first half of the Serie A season but has found his goalscoring boots in 2020.

Rebic has managed six goals in his last eight league appearances, averaging a goal every 80 minutes.

7. Mohamed Salah 

Salah has been a revelation since signing for Liverpool in 2017, winning consecutive Golden Boot awards in his first two years at the club.

The Egyptian has carried that impressive form in 2020, scoring seven goals in 10 league games as Liverpool close in on their first Premier League title.

6. Kylian Mbappe 

Mbappe enjoyed a strong start to 2020 and recorded seven goals in eight games at a rate of one every 100 minutes.

But the 21-year-old will be unable to add to that tally until September 2020 as team sports in France have been banned for the next few months.

5. Robert Lewandowski 

Lewandowski was one of the most prolific goalscorers in the world throughout the 2010s and the striker seems to be getting even better with age.

The 31-year-old netted six times in the first six Bundesliga games of 2020 before the league season was suspended in March.

He then picked up where he left off with another goal against Union Berlin, meaning he has scored 40+ goals in all competitions for a fifth consecutive season.

4. Josip Ilicic 

The Atalanta forward is enjoying his best ever goalscoring season and helped his team reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

Ilicic has scored eight goals in eight Serie A games in 2020 and also has five assists since the turn of the year.

3. Ciro Immobile

Immobile has once again emerged as Lazio’s top marksman this campaign and is already into double figures in 2020.

The striker has scored 10 goals in his last 10 Serie A games, averaging a goal every 89 minutes.

2. Erling Haaland

Haaland’s incredible form for RB Salzburg led to a move to Boruusia Dortmund in January 2020 and the striker is spearheading their title challenge.

The 19-year-old scored a hat-trick on his Bundesliga debut and followed that up with another seven goals in his next eight league appearances.
