Which player has the best goal ratio in the world?
Erling Haaland continued his sensational scoring record for Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday as he found the back of the net in the Champions League.
The Norwegian wonderkid scored Dortmund’s second goal in their 2-1 win at Besiktas on matchday one.
This means that Haaland now has 66 goals in 66 games since joining Borussia Dortmund from Salzburg in January 2020.
Since the start of the 2019-20 campaign, Haaland has 94 goals in 88 games.
So how does Haaland’s goals-to-games ratio compare with some of the world’s other best attackers at their current clubs from the same time period?
Well, Haaland is one of only two players to have a goal-to-game ratio of above 1.
The 21-year-old is averaging a barely believable 1.07 goals a game since the start of 2019-20.
Who has the best goals-to-game ratio in the world since 2019-20?

In third place is Kylian Mbappe, who is averaging 0.84 goals a game having plundered 76 goals in 90 games since 2019-20.
