Some of the most lethal finishers in the world will be lining up and looking for more goals this weekend in the Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and Serie A.

We have identified five famous names to follow across the matches on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The Guinean forward is in the goalscoring form of his life, having hit nine goals in his last 10 appearances for club and country.

Guirassy bagged a brace in Stuttgart's 5-0 romp over Bochum last weekend and, although Leipzig are going to be tougher opposition, he has been given generous odds to keep his run going on Friday night.

Leipzig conceded three goals at Leverkusen last Saturday and may not be anywhere near as strong defensively as they were when Josko Gvardiol patrolled their backline.

Olmo scored again in Leipzig's 3-2 defeat at the BayArena to make it four goals in his last two appearances after bagging a hat-trick in the Super Cup win over Bayern Munich the previous weekend.

The Spaniard is operating with more attacking license this season because of Christopher Nkunku's summer departure and dovetails well with new signing Lois Openda.

He should play a significant part as Leipzig look to bounce back from their early-season Bundesliga setback.

The France international began the campaign in brilliant form with a brace against Clermont before he netted another to round off Monaco's 3-0 home win over Strasbourg last Sunday.

The 33-year-old has hit 21 goals in his last 30 Ligue 1 appearances and should not be ignored when the former champions travel to take on troubled Nantes this Friday.

Les Canaris could be destined for a relegation battle this season after back-to-back defeats in which they have looked no better than pre-season when they were regularly beaten.

The former Liverpool midfielder is not the sort of player that would usually come to mind when nominating a hot goalscoring option, but he could be worth backing against struggling Bochum.

The Undescendables avoided relegation again last season, somehow doing it while conceding a league-high 14 penalties across the campaign.

Can is a perfect six-from-six from the spot in his career and should be back on penalties again after the last-day debacle involving Sebastian Haller that cost Dortmund the title back in May.

Lazio should kickstart their campaign when they entertain Genoa on Sunday, with Immobile already probably licking his lips at the prospect of going up against the Rossoblu backline, who shipped four at home to Fiorentina last Saturday.

The Italy international feasted on a double helping of goals the last time these sides met and he has already had a taste of success this season with the opening strike in Lazio's 2-1 defeat at Lecce last weekend.

Immobile managed only 12 Serie A goals in an injury-hit campaign last term, but his previous seasonal tallies of 36, 20 and 27 reveal a striker who is greedy for more.
