Following the fifth round of the 2023–24 Champions League, Brazil is now the team chasing leader Spain the closest. In the country-by-country artillery standings, the Brasucas surpassed France with four goals in a week, matching the Spanish total. Brazil scored 22 goals overall, six fewer than Spain; the French, following a lackluster first round, completed the podium with 20 balls in the net.
Spain presents new top scorers in each round. Of the 18 names, three are now on the list: Sergio Ramos (that one!) scored in Sevilla’s defeat to PSV; Hermoso left his in Atlético de Madrid’s victory over Feyenoord; and Joselu closed the scoring for Real Madrid in the 4-2 victory over Napoli. Álvaro Djaló , in turn, scored his second goal of the tournament for Braga – 1-1 with Union Berlin
The leader expanded the lead for second place by one goal from the previous round with a total of 28 goals.
Brazil, the new vice president, visited the internet four times. Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli, two Brazilian goals, gave Arsenal a 6-0 victory over Lens. With Pepê, a former Grêmio player, Porto seized the lead before to Barcelona’s comeback. In the end, Rodrygo gave Real Madrid a fantastic goal against Napoli.
France only had one goal in the round thanks to Mbappé, which explains why they dropped to third position with 20 goals—two fewer than Brazil. The player scored from the penalty spot as PSG and Newcastle drew 1-1 in the final seconds.
Portugal is ranked fifth, but their six goals merit recognition. João Mário scored three of them during Benfica’s 3–3 draw with Internazionale. Portugal’s João Félix and João Cancelo signed the 2-1 victory for Barcelona over Porto. Bruno Fernandes, who scored a fantastic goal from outside the area, attempted to assist Manchester United but was unable to prevent a 3-3 draw with Galatasaray in Turkey.
