Some goalscorers blow hot and cold while others rarely go two games without finding the back of the net and we believe our five choices to get on the scoresheet this weekend are a mix of the two.

Four of them were on the mark during the recent international break and look good to register again while the other, Kylian Mbappe, has helped himself to 153 goals in 179 Ligue 1 games for Paris Saint-Germain.

The former Schalke wonderkid scored in both of Germany's international games this month and appears to be going through a career purple patch.

Sane had registered three times in Bayern Munich's opening three league games of the season on the back of goals in each of his last two preseason appearances.

The 27-year-old has the fourth-highest figure for expected goals (xG) in the Bundesliga with only Harry Kane, who is a fraction of Sane's anytime goalscorer odds here, bettering that from Bayern's star-studded squad.

The French icon has scored five goals in his last three PSG appearances and should be relatively fresh for Friday's clash at the Parc des Princes, having only had 90 minutes of action during the international break.

Mbappe, who has scored in seven of his last eight outings for club and country, grabbed the winner in PSG's 2-1 successs over Nice in last season's corresponding fixture.

The former Valencia winger bagged a brace for Spain in their 6-0 romp against Cyprus this week after coming on as a substitute and should carry that goalscoring form into Barcelona's LaLiga clash with Real Betis.

Torres is on course for his most prolific campaign in Barca colours after a disappointing time last season.

The 23-year-old, who has found the back of the net twice in his first three LaLiga appearances, has renewed confidence after also registering in preseason games against Arsenal, Real Madrid and Tottenham.

The last player Genoa, who have shipped seven goals in their first two home games of the season, want to be facing right now is in-form Napoli striker Osimhen.

The reigning Serie A Capocannoniere has scored 13 goals in his last eight appearances for club and country and will arrive at Stadio Communale Luigi Ferraris fresh from hitting a hat-trick for Nigeria.

Osimhen already has three in three in the league for Napoli as he attempts to match or better his record of 26 strikes in 32 league games last term.

The Real Madrid star has scored in each of his first four LaLiga appearances to make it six goals so far, including one in preseason.

Birmingham's finest, who is the current top scorer in the Spanish top flight, also notched his second senior international goal while on England duty this week.

He will look to keep his scoring run going when Los Merengues host a Real Socieded side that conceded three at home to lowly Granada last time out, although they scored five goals of their own.
