It is another cracking weekend of top-flight football across Europe, and we have picked out five goalscorers to follow in fixtures from the Premier League, the Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and Serie A.

Eberechi Eze's penalty against West Ham last weekend took his tally to four goals in six Premier League games since Roy Hodgson returned to Crystal Palace, and he is worth backing to trouble Tottenham's dodgy defence on Saturday.

Whether playing in midfield or on the left of the front three, Eze has licence to attack under Hodgson, and he racked up five attempts at goal, two of them on target, in Palace's last away game at Wolves.

Bayern Munich have lost three of their last five away matches in the Bundesliga, and the German champions face a lively Werder Bremen attacking unit this weekend.

Niclas Fullkrug, the top goalscorer in the division, is a fitness doubt, but his strike partner Marvin Ducksch has also been in fine form and is a big price to get on the scoresheet against a depleted Bayern defence.

Ducksch has scored eight times in his last nine league appearances, including a hat-trick against Hertha Berlin and another goal against Schalke in his previous two outings. 

Third-placed Lens host second-placed Marseille in a huge game in Ligue 1 on Saturday, and Lens striker Lois Openda may well showcase his finishing skills.

The 23-year-old Belgium international has been one of the players of the season in the French top flight, scoring the winner at Toulouse on Tuesday to take his tally to 18 goals in just 24 starts.

Openda has notched nine times in his last seven games, and one of his rare recent blanks came in the 3-1 defeat at Paris St-Germain, where he had eight shots, three on target, for a Lens side reduced to ten men in the 19th minute.

Napoli have sealed the title in Serie A, but there are some crucial fixtures in the race for Champions League qualification this weekend, and Lautaro Martinez can land a blow for Inter Milan at Roma.

Martinez ended a goal drought with a strike in last month's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Benfica and has kicked on impressively, scoring five times in his previous three Serie A games.

Borussia Dortmund's Bundesliga title bid continues at home to Wolfsburg on Sunday, and Dutch winger Donyell Malen is enjoying his most productive spell of the campaign for BVB.

Malen has forced his way back into the starting line-up thanks to seven goals in his last nine appearances, including one as a substitute against champions Bayern Munich.

He scored twice in Dortmund's previous home game against Eintracht Frankfurt, had four shots in the draw at Bochum last time out, and poses a major threat to the visiting defence.
