Ben Yedder bagged his career-best 25 Ligue 1 goals in 37 games in the 2021-22 season. His output dropped a little the following season, but his tally of 19 in 32 games was hardly something to scoff at. He has picked up the pace once again this term and is on course for a 20+ goal campaign. The 33-year-old has played 19 league games so far, scoring 11 times.

Lewandowski, however, has not been as prolific this season, scoring only nine times for the Blaugrana in 21 games. Xavi will need his marksman to pick up the pace if Barca are to put pressure on league leaders Real Madrid in the business end of the campaign.

The 30-year-old has scored a chart-topping 24 times in 20 Bundesliga outings so far, emerging as the European Golden Shoe leader. If he keeps this up, he could very well break Robert Lewandowski’s record of 41 Bundesliga goals in a single campaign.
