The UEFA Champions League has also managed to keep the football fans on the edge of their seats this year. While we are hearing news about UEFA’s technical observers trying to analyse the rise of Barcelona to the top as it defeated Porto, it is time to have a look at the top scorers of the 2023/24 tournament, where we have players like Erling Haaland, Álvaro Morata and Rasmus Højlund creating some historical moments, winning the hearts of all their fans worldwide.
With the football fever at its peak for the season, you can find the latest rankings and all insights about the matches along with goalscorers on topscorersfootball.com
So, for those who don’t want to miss any updates about the most celebrated football tournament, you need to add our site to the bookmarks. Now, let’s dive into the latest updates and get to know the top players of the season as of now.
Recently, Erling Haaland joined the top scorers list by climbing to the list of the youngest players to secure 40 goals, which was also the fastest record. Haaland struck his 5th goal of the season against Leipzig, and that became the moment of the day for all of us, and it was the 5th Matchday. Rasmus Højlund and Álvaro Morata are already on the list of top scorers this season, and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the matches unfold.
Unfortunately, the Norwegian was unable to secure any goal throughout the 5 matches. But thankfully, now he has five, and I hope he can stay in his best form in the upcoming matches as well. I was thrilled to see Højlund score twice during the initial half-hour, but the Manchester United fans must have felt disheartened as the team eventually lost to FC Copenhagen with a score of 4-3.
Currently, we have seven players with four goals, and the list includes Lois Openda from Leipzig, who managed to score twice. Another player who became a fan’s favourite was Julián Álvarez, as he happened to be the one who saved the team’s face with a late win. Jude Bellingham has secured four goals in his team’s name, Real Madrid. Gabriel Jesus has also stood up to the expectations of his team and the fans by not failing to find the net in every appearance during the season.
On Matchday 4, I saw Evanilson of Porto scoring his 4rth goal against Antwerp. Don’t forget that he is also the first one to achieve a hat trick in the UEFA 2023/24. Harry Kane has also made it to the list with 4 goals, as he was the one to give Bayern a much-awaited win against Galatasaray.
Then we have 9 players with 3 goals for their respective teams. The names are Rodrygo, Brais Méndez, Ciro Immobile, Sikan, Bukayo Saka, Kylian Mbappé, Danylo, João Félix, João Mário, and Phil Foden. Joao also scored the second hat trick of the year in UEFA.
