The striker with the best goals per minute ratio in this season’s UEFA Champions League is not Robert Lewandowski or Cristiano Ronaldo.
His name is Sebastien Haller. The Ivorian striker of Ajax. Haller has scored 9 goals in 398 minutes of Champions League football this season giving him a goal in every 44.22 minutes.
Lewandowski has 9 goals in 439 minutes meaning a goal in every 48.78 minutes. Ronaldo has 6 goals in 431 minutes, a goal in every 71.83 minutes played.
This makes the African striker the most effective forward in the Champions League competition this season as he needs fewer minutes to score a goal compared to the others.
The Ivory Coast international whose national team failed to reach the CAF 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification play-off round hit another brace against Besiktas on Wednesday as Ajax won 2-1.
