Also having 13 goals were Vincenzo Grifo of Freiburg and Marcus Thuram of M’gladbach. However, Grifo has little opportunity to increase his scoring record due to poor performance when he has been empty in the last 6/7 rounds. Moreover, Freiburg is a team that plays heavily on defense, so the Italian striker does not have many opportunities to approach the opponent’s goal.
The French were the real threat to Fullkrug. Thuram is finding form again with 2 goals and 2 assists in the last 5 matches. The striker has a huge physique that has determined to part with M’gladbach at the end of the season because of the end of his contract. This is the time when Thuram has to do her best to find an ideal destination for the next season. However, the schedule did not favor Thuram when M’gladbach still had to meet two strong opponents Dortmund and Leverkusen.
If counted in 2023, Kolo Muani is the most effective goalscorer in the Bundesliga with 8 goals. The Frankfurt striker is at his peak and can penetrate any defence thanks to his pace and mutation. If he maintains his current form, Kolo Muani has a chance to overtake Fullkrug at the last minute.
Fullkrug has just recovered from a thigh injury and needs time to regain his form. Since the beginning of 2023, Bremen’s striker has only had 6 goals in the Bundesliga. In terms of performance, Fullkrug can hardly compare to Kolo Muani.
But with 16 goals, Fullkrug still has many chances to become the first German top scorer since Alexander Meier in the 2014/15 season. Let’s wait and see if two French strikers, Kolo Muani and Marcus Thuram, catch up with Fullkrug in the last 5 rounds.
