Many of the 'usual' suspects have carried their form over from the previous season while others are steadily rising to the top.

Highest-scoring teams in Europe in 2023/24

Real Madrid - 46

Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid have been flying throughout the season and it is little surprise they are at the top of both their UEFA Champions League group and La Liga.

Midfielder, Jude Bellingham has played a significant role in their success, contributing to 16 goals and providing four assists in 21 games, per data from Whoscored.

Arsenal - 49

Arsenal earns a spot on the list of highest-scoring teams, and this is also hardly surprising given their exceptional form in front of the goal.

This scoring prowess was once again on display during their impressive comeback win against Luton Town. According to Fotmob data, Bukayo Saka - with 22 goal involvements in 25 games - stands out as the team's most lethal marksman.

Manchester City - 51

Pep Guardiola's squad has netted an impressive 51 goals. Despite their overall inconsistency throughout the campaign, goal-scoring has proven to be the least of their concerns.

According to a report from Whoscored, the team's leading scorer, Erling Haaland has been directly involved in 26 goals across 25 appearances as they seek to defend titles on multiple fronts.

Bayern Munich - 55

Ever since acquiring English striker, Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur, the Bundesliga club has been prolific in scoring goals.

According to Fotmob, the 30-year-old forward, who has been in outstanding form for Thomas Tuchel's side, has contributed to 29 goals in 18 appearances thus far.

Bayer Leverkusen - 58

Bayer Leverkusen are the revelation team of the season. The Bundesliga leaders are flying across every competition they have participated in this season.

With an array of young attackers, including Victor Boniface, Patrick Schick, and Florian Wirtz, complemented by highflying full-backs, Jeremie Frimpong and Alex Grimaldo, Xabi Alonso’s team have asserted their dominance throughout the season.

Nigerian star, Boniface has contributed to 19 goals in 20 appearances, according to data from Whoscored.

Bayern announce Neuer deal with weird video

Sports Brief also previously reported on Bayern Munich announcing the contract extension of Manuel Neuer with a particularly strange video on social media.

While many fans are pleased with retaining the veteran goalkeeper, there were mixed reactions to the unconventional manner in which the deal was announced.

The club took to TikTok and posted a video of the 2014 World Cup winner working on an apparent construction project with the second-choice keeper, Sven Ulreich.
