Bundesliga Duo More Prolific Than Neymar & Mbappe

When it comes to goal returns, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are the most dangerous pair in Europe's top five leagues so far this season, but a Bundesliga duo has been more prolific than the two superstars when it comes to goal involvements per minute.

Click through the mini-gallery to see Neymar, Mbappe and the Bundesliga duo's goal involvements so far this season.

Mbappe scored his ninth Ligue 1 goal – the joint-most in Europe's top five leagues so far in this campaign – on the weekend, while Neymar was rested for his side's 5-0 win over Amiens.

Overall, Mbappe and Neymar have been involved in 23 goals so far, with the former scoring nine and setting up three, while the latter has netted eight times and assisted another three strikes, too.

This equates to a goal involvement of once every 52.3 minutes between the two Paris Saint-Germain superstars. However, Borussia Dortmund pair Paco Alcacer and Jadon Sancho beat that return.

FC Barcelona loanee Alcacer has scored seven goals in just 126 minutes of Bundesliga football, and started his first league game for BVB on the weekend, when he scored in a 4-0 win over VfB Stuttgart.

Sancho, meanwhile, started only the second of his eight Bundesliga games this season in that match, but has already assisted six goals for his teammates, while scoring two himself.

Overall, Alcacer and Sancho have played 430 minutes of Bundesliga football between them in 2018/19, which is about a third of Neymar and Mbappe's tally of 1 206 minutes in Ligue 1.

As a consequence, Alcacer and Sancho have been involved in a goal every 28.6 minutes, as the Bundesliga's official website pointed out.
