With some huge matches taking place across Europe, our five goalscorers to consider come from games in the Premier League, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and Serie A.

Aston Villa are right in the hunt for a European finish in the Premier League and they will fancy their chances of securing a fourth-straight league win when hosting Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Forest have conceded a massive 52 times in the top flight this season, only Bournemouth (57) have allowed in more, and Villans striker Ollie Watkins will be licking his lips at the prospect of taking on such a fragile defence.

The Englishman has scored eight goals in his last 10 appearances and he looks prime to extend that impressive record on home soil this weekend.

Leicester remain without a permanent manager for Saturday's crucial relegation clash against Bournemouth and the result of this contest could play a huge part in deciding who drops down into the Championship.

Although in the bottom three, the Foxes have actually been a free-scoring side this season, netting 40 times in the league, and Harvey Barnes has been a key attacking figure with 10 goals to his name.

The forward is his club's top scorer and while results may not be going Leicester's way right now, the 25-year-old has managed to score two in his last three outings and he can keep that form going against the division's worst defence.

Union Berlin travel to Borussia Dortmund on Saturday in a huge clash between two sides battling for the title and this could turn out to be a high-scoring affair, as the pair have scored a combined 98 times in the Bundesliga.

For Union, Kevin Behrens has been an integral part of the side and he has netted six times in the league, leaving him just two behind the club's top scorer Sheraldo Becker.

The German forward has scored in each of his last two matches, both ending in victory, and a third consecutive strike is a possibility against a BVB side that favours attack over defence.

Fifth-placed Lille travel to rock-bottom Angers, who have conceded a league-high 64 goals in Ligue 1, on Saturday and this presents visiting striker Jonathan David with a great chance to notch his 20th league goal this season.

The Canadian claimed a hat-trick in the 3-3 home draw against Lyon three games ago, while he also netted in the 1-1 with Lens before that and opportunities should be plentiful at the Raymond Kopa Stadium this weekend.

Fiorentina will be looking to record a sixth-straight Serie A win on Saturday when hosting relegation-threatened Spezia and this looks like a good opportunity for Arthur Cabral to land his seventh league goal of the campaign.

The Brazilian has scored three goals in his last six league assignments, while he also netted in Wednesday's 2-0 Coppa Italia victory at Cremonese.

Cabral can keep this good form going against a Spezia side that has kept just one clean sheet away from home in the top flight this season.
