Football is almost entirely about scoring goals, isn't it? Goals are the end product that decides the result of matches, which is why goalscorers enjoy the greatest share of fame. Football has seen a number of great goalscorers. Imagine a situation when your team is losing and all of a sudden at the dying minutes of the game, your forward scores a remarkable goal.
Your mood would drastically change from exhausted to energetic. That is what good attackers can do. They can change the momentum of a match at any second, and some of the teams are blessed with great attackers, let's have a look at them.
#5 Karim Benzema - Real Madrid
After the departure of Ronaldo to Juventus, Benzema was the leading man of the Real Madrid attack. He had to change his game from a playmaker to a genuine number 9. All these years with Ronaldo, his job was to create good chances for the Portuguese and also score a few for himself. But now he has to score goals in every game as he is the only in-form attacker in his team.
The reason he is 5th on the list is because of his inconsistent start to the season. In the first few games he scored 4 goals but then it was not just happening for him. He was missing good chances and it looked like something has to be changed. But soon as a world-class player, he managed everything and shut his haters. He is currently in great form and the main goalscorer for Madrid.
Goals scored this season: 11
#4 Luis Suarez - Barcelona
Suarez was said to be on the wane, but the Uruguayan has shown once again why he is considered to be among the best strikers in the world. His hold-up play and ability to make space for Messi is second to none. His finishing ability is the best and he is one of those players who gives everything on the pitch.
The reason he is 4th on this list is only because of his inconsistent form. He has been scoring a lot of goals for Barcelona but has not performed well in a few of their games. Although he stood up when Barcelona needed him, the 32-year-old hasn't been able to provide consistency and at times it looked like he needed a successor soon.
But as we know, he never gives up. He will fight till the last drop of his breathe and win the game for his team. Surely, he is one of the best strikers in the world.
