Only four Bundesliga game days have passed, but Robert Lewandowski has put himself back at the top of the top scorer list with six goals this season. Not surprisingly, Erling Haaland follows in second place. But what could the scorer list look like in the end and will the Lewandowski record of 41 goals be broken again right away? Here is a little prognosis.
Maintaining third place will undoubtedly not be possible for Union striker Taiwo Awoniyi. However, the 24-year-old has improved compared to the previous season and forms a strong offensive duo with Max Kruse. The Berliners are playing a strong season again, from which the fast and determined Awoniyi also benefits. With twelve goals this season it is enough for the attacker for a place in the top 10.
Thomas Müller is considered a dangerous striker and an even better preparer. This season, too, the Munich-based man has made more assists than his own goals. As a central point of the Bayern offensive, however, his goal rate can also be seen absolutely. Müller managed 13 goals this season and thus even two more than in the strong previous season.
Serge Gnabry fell a little below expectations last year despite ten goals this season. The start of the new season was promising and the double against Hertha was good for self-confidence.
The Bayern star is much more enthusiastic about playing and is finding his final strength again. In the end, the German international scored 14 goals this season.
Last year, Patrick Schick was a little surprisingly single-digit with nine hits. Competitor Alario, who scored eleven times, did better. After the grandiose European Championship, Schick is now also making a leap forward in the club and using his versatile qualities. The start of the season was already strong with three goals in four games. A total of 15 goals this season is enough.
It’s actually hard to believe that this kicker is still playing for TSG Hoffenheim. The Croatian is not only a strong scorer, but also a great technician and preparer. The Hoffenheim offensive stands or falls with the variable attacker.
So far Andrej Kramarić has not been able to sort himself into the list of goalscorers, but he shone with four assists. The gates will follow sooner or later. After 20 goals this season in the previous year, this time it’s enough for 16 hits.
Alassane Pléa actually has everything a top striker needs. The Gladbacher is physically robust, fast and has a hard shot. However, the 28-year-old recently had too many weak phases to play at the very front and was injured one time or another.
This year, however, the Frenchman saddled up a few percent and turned out to be a reliable goalscorer. Borussia will need it.
Wolfsburg’s Wout Weghorst has been one of the most accurate strikers for years. Little will change in this this year either. The Dutchman is ice cold, robust and assertive in front of the goal.
Although Nmecha, Waldschmidt and Lukébakio now have more potential strikers in the Wölfe squad, Weghorst is able to keep his quota up. The Dutch center forward snaps again 20 times.
André Silva landed in second place on the top scorer list last year with a sensational 28 goals this season. Despite the fact that the Portuguese now plays in an even better team, he doesn’t quite come close to his Eintracht mark.
Although Silva is an outstanding attacker with his technical skills and his ability to finish with the foot and the head, the 28 hits were a surprise. But things are not going much worse at RB either, because he has strong preparers at his side with Olmo, Forsberg and Nkunku. It is enough for 26 goals.
With his incredible physique, Erling Haaland is a real force of nature and can hardly be stopped by the opposing defense. The Norwegian is a great counterattack with his speed, but can just as well assert himself against deeply defending teams.
Although Jadon Sancho, the best BVB template provider in recent years, is no longer there, Haaland surpasses his mark from the previous season and snaps 33 times.
There can really only be one! If Robert Lewandowski does not fail in the long term, he will almost certainly take the top scorer home with him in the new season. The Pole is the best striker in the league, has the best team-mates at his side and has the opportunity to score many penalty goals. The only question that arises is whether the Pole could even score more than 41 goals.
Forecast: Lewandowski has been on track for a long time, has no weaknesses, but this time it leaves 40 goals.
