Leandro Trossard has caught the eye for Brighton this season

With some mouth-watering matches to come this weekend, we have once again picked out five potential goalscorers to watch across Europe.

Leandro Trossard (12/5 anytime for Brighton at Brentford)

Leandro Trossard looks a generous price to net against Brentford on Friday as the Brighton attacker has been in fantastic form, while the Bees are struggling defensively. 

The hosts have conceded 17 goals in nine league games, including six in their last three home matches, while Brighton have scored in every away game this term, including three at Liverpool and two goals apiece in wins at Manchester United and West Ham. 

Trossard has been central to that success, not just cutting opponents apart to assist others but scoring all three goals at Anfield as well as the second at West Ham. 

He has netted in two of his last three outings for the Seagulls and while he blanked last weekend against an organised Tottenham side, he still got two shots away. 

Against a Brentford team shorn of centre-back captain Pontus Jansson and defensive shield Christian Norgaard, Trossard should find goalscoring opportunities easier to come by. 

Odsonne Edouard (11/5 anytime for Crystal Palace at Leicester)

Crystal Palace’s trip to Leicester looks set to be a goal-laden thriller, with Leicester far better going forward than in defence and the Eagles set up to hit opponents on the break. 

One Palace player who looks in the mood to capitalise from an open encounter is Odsonne Edouard, who has scored in three of his last four starts for the club. 

The French striker is battling to make the position his own under Patrick Vieira and has done his chances no harm with goals against Chelsea, Leeds and Oxford United. 

The only game in which he blanked during that run was away at Manchester City, but he should find Leicester to be altogether more obliging hosts. 

The Foxes have kept just one clean sheet in their last 12 Premier League games and have the worst defensive record in the top flight. 

Phil Foden (2/1 anytime for Manchester City at Liverpool)

Manchester City have rarely looked so far clear of Liverpool in terms of form and ability in recent years as they do currently, and it would be no surprise if they were to avoid defeat at Anfield for a third consecutive season. 

Phil Foden could again be among the goals for the Citizens as he seems to love facing the Reds — the England youngster has featured in four Premier League meetings with Liverpool and has scored in three of those, including on both of only two trips to Anfield. 

Foden is also building an impressive partnership with Erling Haaland, with the City academy graduate having scored in each of his last three Premier League appearances, including a hat-trick in the Manchester derby. 

With seven goals already this term in just 13 City appearances, Foden looks on course to smash his previous best return and he will be licking his lips at the sight of a Liverpool defence that has conceded three goals in each of their last two league outings. 

Jude Bellingham (11/2 anytime for Dortmund at Union Berlin)

Backing a midfielder who has yet to score a league goal this season to net away at the Bundesliga leaders might seem a very leftfield selection. 

However, even at just 19 years old, Jude Bellingham has become the beating heart of this Dortmund side and the Englishman has been stepping up in big moments. 

Despite having yet to score in the league, Bellingham has netted in all five cup and European appearances, including scoring away at Manchester City, in both meetings with Sevilla as well against Copenhagen and 1860 Munich. 

After hitting an important equaliser against Sevilla on Tuesday night, Bellingham will be raring to go against a Union Berlin side whose table-topping position greatly flatters them. 

The capital club have played only twice against teams in the current top eight, losing to Frankfurt and gaining a very fortunate 1-1 draw against Bayern Munich. 

At a chunky price, Bellingham could be worth taking a chance on to bring Union back down to earth. 

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (5/4 anytime for Napoli vs Bologna)

Napoli have been on fire this season, with a series of attacking masterclasses propelling them to the top of Serie A as well as seeing them win four out of four in a Champions League group containing Liverpool, Ajax and Rangers. 

The Italian outfit have scored an incredible 17 goals in just four European outings and are the top scorers in Serie A with 22 goals. 

With first-choice striker Victor Osimhen having missed a chunk of the season through injury, the goals have been spread around the Napoli squad. 

However, it is winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia who has led the charge, scoring seven goals in all competitions as well as two for his national side. 

The Georgian flyer has scored in five of his last six appearances for club and country and is second-choice penalty taker, so he has every chance of again getting on the scoresheet against a Bologna side who have conceded at least twice in all four of their Serie A away games this term.
