11 Stars Mothiba Has Outscored This Season

With Bafana Bafana striker Lebo Mothiba having scored as many league goals as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi thus far this season, here is a list of some of football's biggest superstars the 22-year-old has outscored so far in 2018/19.

Click through the gallery above to see some superstars who have scored less league goals than Mothiba so far this season.

The South African has been writing the headlines for Strasbourg in Ligue 1 since the beginning of the campaign.

He has already netted seven league goals in France's top flight, as many as Messi has scored for FC Barcelona in LaLiga and Ronaldo for Juventus in Serie A.

As a consequence, Mothiba is among the top league goalscorers in Europe, and has struck more often than Liverpool's Mohamed Salah, who finished last year's league campaign with 32 goals and currently sits on six goals in the Premier League this season.

In addition, Mothiba has also outscored last year's top goalscorers in Ligue 1 and Bundesliga: Edinson Cavani, who netted 28 goals in the French top flight last term, currently sits on five league goals for high-flying Paris Saint-Germain, while Robert Lewandowski, who finished the 2017/18 Bundesliga campaign with 29 strikes, has also netted just five times this time around so far.

In addition, Mothiba's seven goals also tops Antoine Griezmann's three strikes and Karim Benzema's four goals in LaLiga up until this point.

Do you think Mothiba can keep his goalscoring form up until the end of the season to rival Europe's top marksmen for the Golden Shoe? Have your say in the comments section below.
