While Cristiano Ronaldo’s recent form indicates that football is all about banging goals and scoring hat-tricks with all of them seeming ridiculously easy, teams like Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also trying their level best to come to par with the 10 time European Champions. While Chelsea started their pursuit to the Premier League title with a bang scoring 16 goals in their first 5 matches of the season, un-timely injury to their spearhead Diego Costa have corroded the high scoring blues.

We take a look at 5 teams whose attack has been a nightmare for the opponents so far this season:-
No prizes for guessing as the 10 times Champions League winners were an easy bet to be the top scorer in Europe’s domestic Leagues this season. While Ronaldo have surpassed the 15th goal mark with his penalty against Barcelona, the Portuguese have scored more goals than all but three sides in LA Liga this season. Real Madrid have so far scored 33 goals at a staggering ratio of 3.3 goals per game.
One of the shock teams in this list, Olympique de Marseille side have done really well to beat the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich to climb places up in this ranking.
Having scored 25 goals in their League and putting high spenders like PSG on check, the ten times French Ligue 1 Champions have the luxury of having 9 different goal scorers in their team. Standing on top of them, is the Frenchman Andre Pierre Gignac as he has entered in double figures, in terms of goals already this season.
After scoring 15 goals in the opening 5 games with Diego Costa on top of his game after a disastrous World Cup in summer, the blues have gone relatively quiet in terms of goals as they managed ONLY 9 in the next 4. After being the recipients of Golden glove winners last term, the blues missed a short on the title only due to their ineffective strike force. And importing all three strikers from abroad all of whom have collectively scored more than 15 so far, Chelsea have mitigated the absence of ruthlessness which was missing from their game last term out.
It is impossible to mention any scoring charts without the two Spanish giants in them. While the Real Madrid side are ranked at the top merely due to their goal scoring streak, the Catalan giants have a mixed balance of attack and defense in their season. And they are also one of a few sides that have the best defense and attack in Europe. Barcelona have scored 23 goals in the League with Lionel Messi contributing in 7 of them.
Bayern Munich, PSG and Lyon:
From the current European contenders to the upcoming driving force and the team with an history in this competition, Bayern Munich, Lyon and PSG have all scored 21 goals each this season in their respective Leagues. While Bayern Munich are sitting on the top of Bundesliga League table, PSG and Lyon are ranked 2nd and 3rd in French Ligue one, respectively.
