Erling Braut Haaland has become a name that terrifies the defense of Manchester City competitors, whether at the local or continental level. It may not be terrifying only for the back lines and goalkeepers, but it has become a terrifying name for the attackers who compete with him for the top scorer in the English Premier League, Champions League or competition for the boot. The gold of the European leagues, which, by the way, is not led by the young Norwegian player, but is taken over by another Viking, dear reader.
Yes, there is another Norwegian who is the top scorer in the European leagues, and it may not be a strange name for Arab followers. Amal Pellegrino, striker of the Norwegian club Bodo / Glimt, who wore the Damak shirt last season in the Saudi Professional League.
Pellegrino, who used to play in all front positions, is currently leading the left front of the Norwegian club, and despite his presence on the wing and not as an outright striker, he scored 24 goals between the Norwegian League and the European League, in addition to his 9 assists.
Amhal Pellegrino numbers
The 32-year-old has scored 23 goals in the Norwegian League, one goal in the Europa League, not to mention another 4 goals in the Champions League qualifiers that don’t count, but the end of the season for Pellegrino is imminent with only two rounds remaining before the end of the Norwegian League, which is of course incomparable. With the English Premier League in terms of strength or number of matches, in addition to the possibility of Bodo/Glimt’s farewell to the European League, which means there is no chance to increase his goals in the competition for the Golden Boot.
While Haaland is ranked second in the competition for the Golden Boot this season, with 22 goals, 17 goals in the English Premier League and 5 others in the Champions League.
It does not seem that Haaland will face competition or danger in winning the European Leagues top scorer award this season, in light of the names of Lionel Messi, Paris Saint-Germain and Cristiano Ronaldo, the Manchester United striker, so far, with a significant decline in Liverpool star Mohamed Salah’s scoring record, and Harry Kane, Tottenham striker, and Neymar Kylian Mbappe is the stars of Paris from the picture so far, but who knows what might happen tomorrow.
