    As we count down the days to the restart, let’s take a look at the race for top goalscorers of the tournament.

    6 goals (current leaders)

    • Bruno Fernandes, Sporting CP and Manchester United
    • Daichi Kamada, Eintracht Frankfurt
    • Andraz Sporar, Slovan Bratislava and Sporting CP
    • Alfredo Morelos, Rangers
    • Edin Visca, Istanbul Basaksehir
    • Diogo Jota, Wolverhampton Wanderers

    Of the six who have made this list, only Andraz Sporar does not have a chance to increase his total for the tournament as his new squad, Sporting CP, was eliminated by Istanbul Basaksehir in the Round of 32. Bruno Fernandes leads the list as he not only has the six goals that put him up top, but also has four assists between his stints at Sporting and his club since the winter transfer window, Manchester United. Diogo Jota’s total is also of note as he reached it in just 329 minutes. For context, Fernandes, who reached six goals in the second-fewest minutes, did so in 601 minutes.

    5 goals

    • Munir El Haddadi, Sevilla
    • Mason Greenwood, Manchester United
    • Marko Raguz, LASK

    All three members of the five-goal club have a chance to increase their totals in the upcoming restart, but Greenwood is the only one of the three that has a recent goal to boast about. The English player scored the fourth goal of United’s five-goal thrashing of LASK in the first leg of their Round of 16 match.

    4 goals

    • Myron Boadu, AZ Alkmaar
    • Daniel Sinani, F91 Dudelange 
    • Laurent Depoitre, KAA Gent
    • Fabian Frei, FC Basel
    • Claudiu Keseru, Ludogorets
    • Paulinho, Sporting Braga

    Fabian Frei is the lone member to reach this goal mark at this point of the tournament to still be playing. Per BBC Sport, he’s scored at a pace of one goal for every 196 minutes played, with his most recent score coming in the first leg of Basel’s match with Frankfurt. It was the third and final goal that might very well have sunk the German side’s Europa League campaign.

    3 goals

    • Raúl Jiménez, Wolverhampton Wanderers
    • Josip Brekalo, Wolfsburg
    • Ciprian Deac, CFR Cluj
    • Kai Havertz, Bayer Leverkusen
    • Kevin Bua, FC Basel
    • Gabriel Martinelli, Arsenal
    • Odsonne Edouard, Celtic
