Champions League top scorers 2022/23: Mohamed Salah pulls level with Kylian Mbappé



Mohamed Salah’s goal against Ajax took him level with Kylian Mbappé on six goals at the top of this season’s UEFA Champions League scoring charts.

Who has scored the most goals in this season’s UEFA Champions League? Who has provided the most assists?

Erling Haaland, Robert Lewandowski and Salah were all tied on five goals after Matchday 4, but Mbappé struck twice in Paris’s 7-2 defeat of Maccabi Haifa on Tuesday before being joined at the summit by Salah on Wednesday.

Haaland’s double against Copenhagen in the third round of games had taken him clear in the race but he then sat out Matchday 4, giving his pursuers a chance to close in. Lewandowski duly struck twice to rescue a crucial point for Barcelona at home to Inter, while Liverpool’s Salah came off the bench at Rangers to score the quickest hat-trick in competition history, timed at just six minutes and 12 seconds.
