Take a bow to Europe’s deadliest goal poachers!

The spotlight is constantly on these men and their goal scoring abilities to win games. We take a look at the top European goal scorers and see how they have performed thus far into the season and whether they have what it takes to continue their goal scoring exploits till the end of the season.

Cristiano Ronaldo

The man does not need any introductions, its either you love him or hate him. He is last season’s Pichichi and Golden Boot winner, accolades that define him. This season has been slightly challenging for him personally with various dips in form, however since the turn of the year he has managed to find consistency. He currently has 27 La Liga goals and 12 Champions League goals. Not bad in his standards but more is expected when you are Cristiano Ronaldo. With 8 La Liga games to go and a push for the Champions league we are certain to expect more goals from Cristiano as he aims to retain his Golden Boot.

 Robert Lewandowski

One of the pure traditional number 9’s in Europe currently, the Polish hit man has Continued to deliver the goals. Currently he leads the goal scoring charts in the Bundesliga with 25 goals and a return of 8 in the Champions League. He is currently enjoying one of his finer goal scoring seasons.

With the dominance of Bayern in the league and their push for a season treble, there is a lot that is still expected of Lewandowski. We can certainly expect more goals from him.

The way the Gabonese international has burst onto the scene has made the world take notice. His 22 goals in the Bundesliga have broken records already and he has become the focal point of Borussia Dortmund’s attack this season as they aim for the Europa League and an attempt to overtake Bayern.

The style of play by BVB this season is all in favour of his attributes and this has contributed to him thriving. It will come down to whether he is able to stay fit and injury free throughout the season.

Gonzalo Higuain

He might be slightly forgotten but in Italy he certainly is not. He has continued his deadly goal scoring exploits from last season to this season with a return of 29 Serie A goals. Napoli’s Scudetto hunt has largely benefited from his goals.

Higuain is not in unfamiliar territory, when on form he can be devastating, and he can be very frustrating when not. If Napoli can continue playing the way they are playing and Higuain can continue with his current form, we can expect more from him.

Luis Suarez

An iconic figure in the MSM attack, the trio have broken the 150-goal mark in a season with the Uruguay contributing 37 goals, he has certainly become a key figure.

Being part of one of the best teams on the planet as well as being on form throughout the season a lot is still to be seen from Suarez.

Lionel Messi

The best player in the world, the accolades are numerous. The Argentinian is at his devastating best. The last few seasons have seen the shift in what to expect from the Argentinian. We are seeing him become a goal scoring playmaker, and he is excelling on both fronts.

The main thing would be to stay injury free in the season run in, having missed a few weeks earlier in the season; he would not want a repeat of that. We can expect more from the Barca talisman as they fight for another treble.

The Swedish marksman is only getting better with age. Having already wrapped up Ligue 1, and him contributing 27 goals in 24 games, age is truly just a number for the PSG number 9. He has also contributed 5 Champions League goals as well.

With PSG shifting focus on the Champions League and Ligue 1 being a formality, we could see much more from him.

Considered last year as a one-season wonder, the Tottenham marksman is proving those critics wrong once again. He has certainly continued his form into this season. The 21 goals so far have contributed to the title push for Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

The “Hurricane” has managed to stay fit throughout the season and the stability of the Spurs squad all look in his favour and we can expect more from the young English man.
