#6 Edinson Cavani (PSG)
League – French Ligue 1 (X2)
16 GOALS (32 POINTS)
Long in the shadow of Zlatan Ibrahimovic as far back as his 2013 entry from Napoli, the Uruguayan worldwide was compelled to play out wide to suit the more settled Zlatan for quite a bit of his initial PSG vocation.
The Swedish record goalscorer’s takeoff in 2016 offered Cavani the opportunity to be the primary striker of the group, and he has prospered from that point forward in his increasingly favored focal job.
In every one of the initial two seasons following Ibrahimovic’s takeoff, Cavani won the Ligue 1 Golden Boot, scoring 35 goals and 28 goals individually.
He has anyway confronted analysis for his non-execution in the Champions League knockout rounds (which is the place PSG have their sights set on), and the entries of Neymar and Mbappe may have looted him off his star status somewhat, however he is as yet conveying the products.
So far this season, he has scored 16 goals in 15 Ligue 1 matches, helping PSG set another French record of winning their initial twelve matches successively, in what is probably going to be a parade to an eighth French league title over the most recent nine years.
