African Players: Most goals in Champions League group stage

Sebastien Haller is looking to rewrite history for African players in the Champions League. 

The Ivory Coast international has scored 6 goals in the competition so far from the opening three games, moving him closer to the top of scoring African greats.

Samuel Eto'o holds the record for the highest number of Champions League goals in the group stage, but Haller could match the numbers if he scores just once in the remaining three group games. 

Mohamed Salah is in also with a shout, having found the back of the net five times this season.

 

Here is the chart of top scoring Africans;

  • Samuel Eto'o - 7 (2010/11)
  • Sebastien Haller - 6 (2021/22)
  • George Weah - 6 (1994/95)
  • Mohamed Salah - 5 (2021/22, 2017/18)
  • Didier Drogba - 5 (2003/4, 2010/11)
  • Seydou Dombia - 5 (2010/11)
  • Moussa Marega - 5 (2017/18)
  • Vincent Aboubakar - 5 (2017/18)
  • Ajax - Next Match
