Bookies.com mark the beginning of the Bundesliga campaign by bringing customers the tastiest tips to clinch the top scorer crown
With German football riding a wave of success, the new Bundesliga season could be the most sensational goal fest yet.
Here, we highlight five formidable forwards who could finish the term as leading league marksman…
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (@ 7/1 with bet365)
At just 26, the Gabon goal machine has been steadily improving, striking 16 for an under-par Borussia Dortmund in his previous season. Now, with a fresh start under Thomas Tuchel, this could be impressive Aubameyang’s title to take.
Bas Dost (@25/1 with Ladbrokes)
Wolfsburg’s dangerous Dutchman truly put himself on the map as Die Wolfe won the DFB Pokal and sped to a sensational second place league finish last campaign.
A strong end to the season, with three in four outings to take his tally to 16 in 21, suggests this striker has what it takes to push on with a stable side and a sprinkling of stardust in support.
Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (@10/1 with bet365)
From one Clockwork Orange attacker to another, Schalke hitman Huntelaar was the last to bag 29 Bundesliga goals since legendary Karl-Heinz Rummenigge back in 1981, equalling that terrific tally in 2012.
The striker is yet to be surpassed since, and has struck double figures in three of his five terms spent in the German top tier. So, while Huntelaar may be a slight outsider at 10/1, he has plenty of proven pedigree.
Robert Lewandowski (@ 13/8 with William Hill)
Lethal Lewandowski last took the top scorer title in 2014 with Dortmund, and is a clear favourite to recapture it as he spearheads juggernaut Bayern Munich’s title tilt.
Expected to be much more settled in his second season after changing allegiances, the prolific Polish predator has racked up over 90 goals during five terms in the German top flight. A truly impressive strike rate for anyone not named Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.
Thomas Muller (@ 14/1 with William Hill)
Menacing Muller’s nose for goal is certainly no secret. His terrific timing and unmatchable movement make the Munich goal threat so tough to mark, and there are few that prowl the penalty area so well.
The decorated dangerman has racked up 39 strikes in his last three seasons and amazingly aged only 25 has acres of space left to become even more ruthless and effective.
Bookies.com betting tip: with such a star-studded supporting cast it has to be Lewandowski @ 13/8 with William Hill to be top scorer
