The last season of French Ligue 1 was much more competitive than the current one. This year, names like Falcao, Fekir and Mariano are no longer on the top of the list, rather PSG Trio Cavani, Neymar, and Mbappe are flying high and competing with each other on who is to score the most in Ligue 1.
The best online betting sites in France suggest that the $220 million Neymar is going to be the top goalscorer of PSG and Ligue 1 this season. Yet after 9 games in the domestic league, the French youngster Mbappe shows better stats and maintains better relations with his teammates, which could help him outscore the Brazilian Superstar. Before further reading our predictions, have a look at Bet365 Sportsbook to place a bet on Ligue 1 top scorer.
After 9 games in the domestic league, the French youngster Mbappe shows better stats than Neymar.
PSG Trio Stats
After 9 games in Ligue 1, Neymar scored 11 goals, Mbappe netted 10 times, and Cavani has 6 goals to his name. The race is tight between the French and Brazilian striker, despite Mbappe playing only 404 minutes in comparison to Neymar’s 710 minutes of play. The French youngster has the best conversion rate among the PSG three forwards and that is why he does not need more playing time to score the most goals.
79% of Mbappe’s shots are on target, and he scores a goal every 51 minutes. Neymar comes second with 76% of his shots on target, scoring on average of every 89 minutes. Cavani the top goalscorer in the club’s history is not enjoying a good season so far, with only 38% of his shots are on target and he gets the chance to score one goal every two games.
Mbappe’s New Record
Online sportsbook news in France agree that the 19-year-old French striker is having an impressive season at home. He just scored a new record against Lyon as the youngest player in the past 45 seasons to score four goals in a single French league game. Not to mention, his best young player award at the World Cup in Russia where he was the first teenager to score in a final since Pele in 1958.
However it is not only Mbappe’s individual skills that make him so promising to win you a bet on Ligue 1 top scorer at Bet365 Sportsbook with odds at 2.50, it is also him getting the most assists among PSG trio when scoring goals. He had two assists from Neymar who is taking the position of a midfielder, while the collaboration between Cavani and Neymar remains at its lowest level. Therefore, we do not recommend choosing either one of Neymar and Cavani to be Ligue 1 top scorer although the odds for Neymar are 2.00 and they are 5.50 for Cavani.
