Our Goalscorers to Watch Around Europe This Weekend - 19/02/22

Valencia v Barcelona: Aubameyang

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be looking for his first goal at Barcelona this weekend and given how it is expected to be his first La Liga start following two off-the-bench performances so far, the ex-Arsenal man is getting tipped to do so.

Aubameyang's goals record needs no introduction as he scored 92 times in 163 appearances for Arsenal and 141 in 213 for Borussia Dortmund. Even this season the Gabon star has managed to put in seven goals in 15 appearances in what is classed so far as an underwhelming campaign.

In fact, only Memphis Depay in the Barcelona team has scored more this season (8), with Ansu Fati's four goals the second-best in their colours.

It's time for Aubameyang to prove to Europe he's still one of the very best around, and more importantly, it's time Barcelona got a consistent goalscorer as they've lost both Sergio Aguero and Lionel Messi in the past year.

Salernitana v AC Milan: Giroud

Every game now for AC Milan is about keeping their distance from rivals and champions of Italy, Inter Milan, as Stefano Pioli's men are top of the table in Serie A for the first time in weeks and it seems their title charge of last season has spilled over into this campaign, but with even more venom.

The Milan squad just seems to be getting better each year and with 50 goals scored and 26 conceded and 17 wins from 25 games, the club are in a fantastic position to stay top right now as they meet with one of Europe's worst top flight sides, Salernitana.

It's been a disastrous return to Serie A for them and only Greuther Furth in the Bundesliga have an equally worse record across Europe's top five leagues this season.

Rafael Leão and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have eight goals each as Milan's top scorer this season, but Oliver Giroud has seven and has been carrying Pioli's side recently following a brilliant double in the Milan derby and again in the Coppa Italia against Lazio.

Nantes v PSG: Mbappe and Blas

It hasn't been incredibly easy for Paris Saint-Germain this season despite the extraordinary transfer window they had last summer, but nevertheless, they still sit a comfortable 13 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 and with 52 goals scored from 22 games.

The race for the top scorer award in France is heating up, however, as Kylian Mbappe (12) chases down Wissam Ben Yedder (14), and following the PSG star's stunning goal against Real Madrid, we think he'll make it three in three here against a Nantes side still competing for the European spots.

Ludovic Blas is their star man and following 10 league goals last season, the midfielder has seven goals this campaign and is outscoring most midfielders on the continent with a further four goals in the Coupe de France.

Williem II v Ajax: Haller

Ajax's goals difference record in the Eredivisie this season is utterly insane as they have scored 69 goals and conceded only five from 22 games, and in reality, nobody is doing it better in their own respective league at the moment across Europe's first divisions in this manner.

Sebastien Haller has been a great contributor to this since moving to Amsterdam from West Ham United and the striker has 41 goals in his first 50 games for the club. This includes 16 in 19 league appearances this campaign and a stunning 10 in six in the Champions League.

The former Hammers man scored a hat-trick last weekend as they casually won 5-0 once again, meaning Haller has now scored in his past three games with a record of five in this time as Ajax scored 13 and conceded 0.

He'll likely score again against a Williem II side just two points above relegation.

Bayern Munich v Greuther Furth: Lewandowski and Gnabry

Bayern Munich will be hunting for blood this weekend as they face bottom-placed Greuther Furth on home soil and it's these exact games where they tend to smash teams out the park and leave no stone unturned.

However, following a stunning 4-2 loss to mid-table VfL Bochum and a 1-1 draw with RB Salzburg, the club have failed to win their past two games where they were expected to smash their opponents.

Despite the 4-2 loss, Robert Lewandowski still managed to casually get two goals and he is now on 37 in 31 games this season and is on a similar ratio to this 48 goals in 40 games last campaign right now. Moreover, it's against teams this low down in the table where the Pole tends to do get his work done in a greater capacity.

Serge Gnabry has 10 goals in the league this season too, and with Furth conceding 57 goals and Bayern scoring 70 across their 22 games so far in the Bundesliga, there is surely only one winner here.
