The Cameroonian has stunned viewers of the Saudi Pro League since his arrival in the summer. In a rather disappointing season for Damac, the forward has been a ray of light and has scored 15 important goals for the club in the league. To put it into context, Georges N’Koudou has scored nearly 40% of Damac’s goals this season ranking him 5th in the Saudi Pro League Top Scorers this season.

4.) Anderson Talisca:- 16 Goals (Al Nassr)

Anderson Talisca now into his third season at Al Nassr has been nothing short of impressive for the Riyadh-based club. After scoring 20 goals each in his first two seasons at Al Nassr in the league, Talisca was en route to securing his highest goal tally for the club this campaign. Unfortunately for him, a brutal injury in early March ruled him out for the rest of the season, halting his goal tally at only 16 in the league. 

3.) Abderrazak Hamdallah:- 17 Goals (Al Ittihad)

Many expected to see the 33-year-old striker be demoted to the bench after the arrival of French striker Karim Benzema in the summer. However, Benzema’s season has been marred with injuries and as usual Abderrazak has stood up for the reigning champions yet again. After scoring 21 goals last season in the league to lead Al Ittihad to the league title last season, this campaign he has already scored 17 goals. He is currently in 3rd place in the Saudi Pro League top scorers list.

2.) Aleksandar Mitrovic:- 20 Goals (Al Hilal)

Al Hilal’s savior Mitrovic arrived in the summer and has scored a whopping 20 goals since then. His performances in front of goal in the absence of Neymar Jr. have proved to be more than impressive as Al Hilal leads the league by 12 points!

1.) Cristiano Ronaldo:- 23 Goals (Al Nassr)

Perhaps the least surprising name on the list is the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo. His 23 goals at the age of 39 have served as a testament to his quality yet again and helped him rank 1st in the Saudi Pro League Top Scorers list. He will definitely aim to break Abderrazak’s 34 goals in one season record in the league with 10 more match days to go!
