UEFA Champions League is back. The final group matches will be played on Tuesday and Wednesday. Manchester United will welcome CSKA Moscow at Old Trafford tonight. The Red Devils need a draw to progress but Atletico Madrid needs a miracle against Chelsea to avoid dropping down to Europa League. Other big matches include; clash of titans between Bayern and PSG among others. Today, we want to look at top scorers in the competition so far.
5. Edinson Cavani- 6 goals (0 assist)
PSG front three is without a doubt the deadliest in Europe at the moment. Neymar, Cavani, and Mbappe have netted 15 goals so far in UEFA Champions League alone. Edinson Cavani has contributed 6 goals in 434 minutes he has played so far. This means he needs a minimum of 72 minutes to score a goal.
Wissam Ben Yedder is ahead of him on the list based on minutes played and time needed to score a goal. Mbappe only netted 3 goals and assisted 3 others in Europe so far. He had a big season with AS Monaco last year and the same is likely this term.
4. Wissam Ben Yedder- 6 goals (0 assists)
Sevilla pulled off a miracle in the last round of UEFA Champions League matches. They were 3-0 down at halftime against Liverpool but they came back to draw 3-3. It was one of those great matches in a European night.
The La Liga side can still top the Group but they must beat Maribor in the final match this week to do so. Wissam Ben Yedder has played a key role in their UEFA Champions League campaign this season. He has netted 6 goals in 412 minutes he has played so far. This means he has scored a goal after every 69 minutes.
3. Harry Kane- 6 goals (2 assists)
The only Premier League based player in the top five is Harry Kane. Tottenham Hotspurs striker scores goals for fun even when the team is losing the match. The London thrashed Real Madrid 3-1 at Wembley Stadium in November to reach the last 16. They also defeated Borussia Dortmund away from home to top the group. The England striker has scored 6 of their goals and assisted 2 others. They are struggling in the League at the moment but a win against APOEL Nicosia this week will help them get back to winning ways.
