5 best goal-scoring clubs in the Top 5 European Leagues (November 2016)
The 2016/17 season has begun with a bang, with the Bundesliga, English Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1 and Serie A experiencing some hyper-competitive times at the top of the league. Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Real Madrid, OGC Nice and Juventus are top of their respective leagues, but not all of them are the highest scoring clubs in their respective leagues.
European football has seen some amazing goal-scoring feats this season, with a veritable feast of attacking football on display across all the leagues. La Liga has the most goals scored so far with 329 goals, with Serie A surprisingly 2nd with 326 goals scored, albeit with an extra round of games. The Premier League has seen the net bulge 306 times, with Ligue 1 narrowly behind on 302, while the 18-team Bundesliga has had 255 goals scored so far in 10 games.
Here are the 5 best goal-scoring clubs currently, during the November 2016 international break (Stats updated as of November 16, 2016)
#5 Borussia Dortmund – 2.5 GPG
The Schwarzgelben currently sit 5th in the table, but what can be of some comfort to their fans is that Borussia Dortmund is undoubtedly the most exciting team to watch in the Bundesliga. Dortmund have scored a stunning 25 goals in 10 games, or about 2.5 goals every game, although a leaky defence which has conceded 12 goals so far has meant that Borussia only have 18 points from 10 games.
In a run that has seen them with a record of 5 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses, Dortmund have picked up some seriously amazing scorelines, including a 6-0 hammering of SV Darmstadt, a 5-1 win away to Werder Bremen and a 5-2 drubbing of Hamburg in their previous game, which is 60% of their goals in the league so far in just 3 games.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang tops the goal-scoring charts for Dortmund and across Europe, racking up 11 goals in 9 appearances already. Apart from their Gabonese talisman, Thomas Tuchel’s side has spread the goals, with Adrian Ramos, Christian Pulisic, Gonzalo Castro, Ousmane Dembele and even defenders Lukasz Piszczek and Raphael Guerreiro all racking up two goals each.
