European football is gearing towards a return in the coming weeks after the enforced break in the 2019/20 season. Coronavirus led to the abrupt break in football across the world.
Before the present campaign was suspended, several strikers have made their mark this season from experienced Bayern Munich and Polish international striker Robert Lewandowski to Leicester City hitman Jamie Vardy to the new kid on the block Erling Haaland. Young Norwegian international Haaland recently changed clubs from Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg to Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga.

Here are the leading marksmen in Europe this season:
1. Robert Lewandowski – The Bayern Munich player has scored goals for fun this season. He is the leading goalscorer in both the German Bundesliga and the Champions League. Lewandowski has scored 11 goals in just seven matches plus a return of 25 goals in 23 German Bundesliga games. In total, he has 40 goals in 33 matches in all competitions and only young striker Erling Haaland can match his strike rate in the top European leagues this season.
2. Ciro Immobile – The Italian international has had the best scoring season of his career after 27 league goals in 26 games. Roberto Mancini is the Italian national team manager and he would be hoping the player can transform that impressive goal return to national team level. He has scored 30 goals in 32 games in all competitions for Lazio this term.
3. Erling Haaland – He is the golden boy of European football after a stellar season that started at Red Bull Salzburg in Austria. Haaland scored 32 goals for the Austrian Bundesliga giants before signing for Borussia Dortmund in January 2020. He has hit the ground running at Dortmund with nine goals in his first eight league games. Borussia Dortmund have reaped rewards for their perseverance in the face of the threat of other big clubs like Manchester United and Juventus during the chase for the striker at the start of the year.
