French Ligue 1 is back to business after a short winter break. The League is playing catch up with several clubs playing more matches than others. This is because teams like PSG cancelled a number of matches due to protests. Today, we want to switch our focus to the league-best attackers by goals scored so far this season.
5. Edinson Cavani- 11 Goals (2 Assists)
Paris Saint-Germain third attacker Edinson Cavani is ranked joint-fifth alongside Florian Thauvin with 11 goals scored so far this season in Ligue 1. However, Marseille winger is leading with 3 assists as compared to 2 goals assisted by Uruguay forward. The race for the Golden Boot is clearly going to be very hot indeed.
4. Neymar- 11 Goals (5 Assists)
Paris Saint-Germain front three are scoring goals for fun in Ligue 1 so far this season. The World most expensive player Neymar has so far netted 11 goals and assisted 5 more. The Brazilian is behind teammate Kylian Mbappe in the goal charts. He reportedly left Barcelona to get out of Lionel Messi shadow but now a younger Mbappe is making life hard for him in Paris.
3. Emiliano Sala- 12 Goals (2 Assists)
Nantes striker Emiliano Sala is travelling to Wales to discuss a move and potential medical with Cardiff.
The Argentinian has scored 12 Ligue 1 goals this season and could make an £18M move to the Premier League club.
