5. Borussia Dortmund: 84 goals - 2.4 goals/game
Borussia Dortmund have always been famed for playing high energy and expansive football right from the days of Jurgen Klopp and this had the effect of the club being one of the most potent sides in all of Europe.
The Bundesliga side have shown their characteristic unpredictability but while they might have posted some shock results throughout the campaign, there has been no shortage of goals or excitement in matches involving BVB.
They had earlier equalled the German record for most goals in the opening 23 games of a season with 63 goals, while their total of 66 from 24 Bundesliga matches averages at a rather scary 2.75 goals per game.
This total drops significantly when you add goals scored in other competitions but 84 golals from 35 matches in all competitions is still pretty impressive.
Jadon Sancho has continued his impressive trajectory at the Westfalen, while Erling Braut Haaland has taken to his new surroundings like a duck to water and with other young players like Gio Reyna and Achraf Hakimi, the future looks bright for Borussia Dortmund if they can keep hold of their starlets.
