We're inching ever closer to the final run-ins around Europe but the excitement is not slowing down.

It was goals galore in Europe this week, with some of the game's biggest names walking away with match balls and boosted stats.

Here are 90min's top ten players across Europe from Gameweek 35.

10. Victor Osimhen

Club: Napoli
Position: Forward

Victor Osimhen came in clutch for Napoli this week with a late penalty to secure a 2-2 draw with Roma.

He was a constant menace to the Roma backline throughout the game and was more than a little unfortunate not to have found the back of the net before his spot-kick arrived.

9. Alexandre Lacazette

Position: Forward

No, you haven't accidentally fallen into a time machine and gone back to 2016. Alexandre Lacazette really is dominating Ligue 1 at the ripe old age of 32.

Doing his best to singlehandedly drag Lyon out of the crisis in which their season began, Lacazette grabbed a goal and an assist in his side's huge win over second-placed Monaco. He's now got 16 goals for the season, 13 of which have come in his last 15 games.

8. Viktor Gyokeres

Club: Sporting CP
Position: Forward

Viktor Gyokeres came off the bench to score in both the 87th and 88th minutes to drag Sporting CP back to a 2-2 draw with Porto.

That's now 40 goals in all competitions for Ruben Amorim's favourite son, whose £86m release clause is looking more and more appealing by the week.

7. Harry Kane

Club: Bayern Munich
Position: Forward

Speaking of players enjoying outrageous goalscoring seasons, Harry Kane now has 42 in 42 this year after his double led Bayern Munich to a 2-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.

In the Bundesliga, he has 35 goals to his name and needs six more in Bayern's final three games to tie Robert Lewandowski's all-time single-season record of 41.

6. Riccardo Sottil

Club: Fiorentina
Position: Winger

Fiorentina winger Riccardo Sottil has hardly had the sort of season that would catch the eye outside of Serie A, but perhaps the greatest performance of his career so far came this weekend.

The 24-year-old scored and bagged two assists in a 5-1 thumping of Sassuolo, standing out in a game which also saw strong showings from Arthur Melo, Antonin Barak and Nicolas Gonzalez.

5. Luuk de Jong

Club: PSV Eindhoven
Position: Forward

Luuk de Jong is in unbelievable form right now. His PSV side have scored no fewer than 19 goals in their last three Eredivisie games, and he's been involved in eight of them.

The 33-year-old walked away from the 8-0 win over Heerenveen with one goal and two assists to his name, effectively ensuring Arne Slot's final year with Feyenoord will not end with another title triumph.

4. Kevin Stoger

Club: Bochum
Position: Midfielder

A late bloomer, 30-year-old Bochum midfielder Kevin Stoger is currently enjoying the best campaign of his career.

Stoger scored twice as relegation-threatened Bochum sealed a huge win over Hoffenheim, including a beauty of a free kick to leave him flirting with double-figures for both goals and assists this year.

3. Malik Tillman

Position: Midfielder

Bayern Munich loanee Malik Tillman has only started 14 Eredivisie games this season but still has nine goals and 11 assists to his name. Efficient.

He joined De Jong in running the show for PSV, bagging two and creating another coming in from the left wing.

2. Alex Baena

Club: Villarreal
Position: Midfielder

Alex Baena made a late push for La Liga's assist award by setting up no fewer than three goals in Villarreal's 3-0 win over Rayo Vallecano.

He celebrated the win by publicly pleading with Xavi to sign him for Barcelona where, if Baena gets his wish, he could play alongside this week's winner.

1. Robert Lewandowski

Club: Barcelona
Position: Forward

Robert Lewandowski heard the criticism about his early-season form and has been playing with a vengeance in 2024.

He thumped three past Valencia at the weekend - his first La Liga hat-trick and only the second of his Barcelona career.
