As we count down the days to the final, let’s take a look at the race for top goalscorers of the tournament.

7 goals (current leader)

  • Bruno Fernandes, Sporting CP and Manchester United

Bruno Fernandes leads the list as he not only has the seven goals that put him up top, but also has four assists between his stints at Sporting and his club since the winter transfer window, Manchester United.

6 goals

  • Diogo Jota, Wolverhampton Wanderers 
  • Daichi Kamada, Eintracht Frankfurt
  • Andraz Sporar, Slovan Bratislava and Sporting CP
  • Alfredo Morelos, Rangers
  • Edin Visca, Istanbul Basaksehir

Of the five who have made this list, only Diego Jota of Wolves has a chance to increase his total for the tournament. Jota’s total is also of note as he reached it in just 362 minutes, less than any of the leading scorers. 

5 goals

  • Munir El Haddadi, Sevilla
  • Mason Greenwood, Manchester United
  • Marko Raguz, LASK
  • Fabian Frei, Basel

Three of the four members of the five-goal club have a chance to increase their totals in the upcoming restart, but Greenwood is the only one of the three that has a recent goal to boast about. The English player scored the fourth goal of United’s five-goal thrashing of LASK in the first leg of their Round of 16 match.

4 goals

  • Raul Jiménez, Wolverhampton Wanderers
  • Kai Havertz, Bayer Leverkusen
  • Umar Sadiq, Partizan
  • Myron Boadu, AZ Alkmaar
  • Romelu Lukaku, Inter Milan
  • Daniel Sinani, F91 Dudelange 
  • Laurent Depoitre, KAA Gent
  • Anthony Martial, Manchester United
  • Claudiu Keseru, Ludogorets
  • Paulinho, Sporting Braga

Don’t look now, but Romelu Lukaku is on a tear and could become a threat to assume top scorer of the tournament if Inter Milan continues to advance. He’s scored in nine consecutive Europa League matches, dating back to his Everton days, which is a record.
