How do you determine whether a player is a prominent goal scorer? A straight forward answer would be : “By counting the number of goals he scored”. But how do you check if he is efficient or consistent? Well, this is simple too; we see the number of shots he had and check how many of those shots he converted into goals.
So we’ve had a look at the top most efficient marksmen from the top 5 leagues in Europe : EPL, La Liga, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and Seri A and made a list of strikers. Note that these strikers may or may not be the leading scorers in their respective leagues.
So, Miroslav Klose is the best finisher in Europe – the Lazio hitman has a better shot-to-goal ratio than Messi, Ronaldo & Van Persie.
The Germany legend is the most efficient elite striker from the Continent’s five major leagues this season.
