Top 5 best scoring teams in Europe


Ahead of the UEFA Champions League play-off games that start on February, 18, and inspired by Manchester City’s new British record of scoring the first 100 goals of the season as early as at the end of January, we looked at the best European domestic championships to find all free-scoring teams.

5. Atletico Madrid
2,54 goals/match

Diego Simeone has made an incredible work on building efficient and solid defence that saw Los Colchoneros concede only 14 goals in Primera by February. But it would be unfair to attribute the ‘catenaccio’ badge to his team’s performances. They also netted 56 goals in 22 matches and the newly nationalized Spaniard Diego Costa is the main hitman with twenty goals. David Villa follows with eleven. Clarence Seedorf should be aware of this as Milan host Atletico on February 19 in Champions League last 16.

4. Barcelona
2,68 goals/match

Alex Sanchez, Pedro, Lionel Messi, Cesc Fabregas, Neymar. These names make the rivals dizzy as all of the five blaugrana players are capable of delivering brilliant assists and clinical finishing. Their goals make Barcelona the fourth best scoring team in Europe.

3. Bayern Munich
2,68 goals/match

Bayern Munich currently boasts the roster that outclassed all opponents in 2012/2013 season both on domestic arena and in Europe and could dominate the world football in the years to come. They have not lost a single game in Bundesliga this term and look equally solid in attack and in front of their own goal. Likewise the Catalan powerhouse, Bayern Munich have five players who inflict constant threat on opposing teams with Mario Mandzukic, Thomas Mueller, Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben, Mario Gotze scoring most of Bayern’s 51 goals this season. A massive test for Arsenal in the Champions League.

2. Real Madrid
2,77 goals/match

If you have Cristiano Ronaldo in the team, you’ve got to disappoint opponents every game. The Player of the year 2013 has already scored 22 goals and made 6 assists in La Liga. However, he was harshly sent off against Athletic Bilbao and will miss several matches. Karim Benzema follows with 11 successful strikes. Gareth Bale is just behind the Frenchman with 8 goals.

1. Manchester City
2,83 goals/match

Despite being held by Chelsea at Etihad, Manchester City remain the top-striking team in Europe. An incredible average close to three goals a game comes as a result of hugely aggressive performance from Manuel Pellegrini’s men. Dominating in midfield courtesy of Yaya Toure and Fernandinho efforts, the Citizens create space and opportunities in all areas. And with plenty of exceptional forward-minded players, the Premier League title contenders score easily both at home and away. Sergio Aguero is the best striker with 15 goals, Yaya Toure has added 12 goals to his midfield work, Negredo and Dzeko come up with 9 and 7 goals respectively. This makes the round of 16 clash against Barcelona incredibly anticipated as two of the best five scoring teams in Europe meet each other.
