The Top Five Centre Forwards In The Champions League This Season by Nobody: 9:54am On Nov 05, 2019
Goals are the aim of the beautiful game and the Champions league is a habitat to some spectacular goals.

However, The Evolution of football means some teams don’t use their central striker as their primary source of goals anymore, but the No.9 remains a key position in world football.

Those able to thrive in this position make a huge difference to their teams.

With the Champions League returning, Dockaysworld takes a look at the top five centre fowards in Europe’s premiere competition.

Note: Wide fowards like Lionel messi(112 ucl goals), Sadio Mane, Eden Hazard, Mohammed Salah, Kylian Mbappe and ofcourse Cristiano Ronaldo(127 Ucl goals) are not included despite their goal scoring records.



5. Sergio Aguero

Manchester city – 68games, 37goals

Sergio Aguero is one of the greatest striker in the champions league history but there is though one major elephant in his room.

He is yet to win the competition.

Blessed with pace, strength and admirable finishing technique the city star stands out as one of the finest No 9. In his generation and will undoubtedly be aiming to fire Manchester city to the Champions league glory this season.

4 Luis Suarez

Barcelona – 51games, 21goals

A Viper who can strike from no where with some of the most vicious shot you will ever see.

Although the Uruguayan has often been vindicated about his abysmal goal scoring record in away matches in Europe, However he still ticks all boxes as a proper centre foward with his impressive vision, eye for a pass and perfect hold up play.

A true Legend!


3 Karim Benzema

Real Madrid – 113 games, 60 goals – Four titles (2014,2016, 2017, 2018)

If this was about charisma, handsomeness and all-around magnificence then Karim Benzema would be No.1 But as it is more about quality, he has to be taken down a few spots.

The Real Madrid man is now a shadow of the player he was two or three seasons ago when he played with Cristiano Ronaldo in Zidane’s narrow 4-4-2 Formation which yielded three consecutive Champions league trophies.

However he remains one of the most Iconic centre fowards to grace Europe elite competition.



2 Robert Lewandoski

Bayern Munich – 81 games, 54 goals

Robert Lewandoski ticks all the boxes for the No 1 spot but taking trophies into consideration, he has to settle for a Runner up position.

Calm In front of goal and a eye for a wondrous combination of movement and athleticism, Lewandoski needs to be appreciated more.

He has also started the season in good form prior to Head Coach Niko Kovac Dismissal.



1 Roberto Firmino

Liverpool – 26 games, 14 goals – One title (2019)

Firmino is simply the glue that joins Liverpool’s fearsome attack together.

A peerless presser who gives opponents no time to settle whilst with the ball at his feet flicking and slipping the ball through defensive gaps to let his team-mates score in abundance.

Firmino provides much more than just goals, however, as his pressing, passing and intelligent movement make him a superb foil for Liverpool’s magnificent wide men.

He is indeed the Modern day centre forward

Robert Lewandoski and Kun Sergio Aguero are really hot and prolific year in year out.

Unfortunately, the duo are yet to win the elite title.
