Bayern Munich star player Thomas Müller has beaten Mario Gomez to be named as the top scorer for the German side in the Champions League.
Thomas Müller remain tied with his former teammate Mario Gomez with 23 goals for almost two months. The 23rd goal was scored against AS Roma in a Champions League 7 – 1 win at Stadio Olimpico.
The 25-year-old attacker scored his 24th goal from the penalty spot against Russian side CSKA Moscow yesterday. The German giants who had already secured the place in the knockout stages ended their Champions League group stages with a victory that took them to 15 points.
Muller is only 25-year-old and there are many years waiting for him. If he continues the same performance in the future then he might easily get a half century.
Since he made his first appearance for Bayern in 2008, he knew how to put the ball in the goal whether from foot, head, back or skin.
Below are the top five goal scorers for Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Thomas Müller (24), Mario Gomez (23), Giovane Elber (22), Arjen Robben/Claudio Pizarro (18), Roy Makaay (17), Franck Ribery (16).
Muller is likely to maintain his record as there is no one who can easily beat him in the near future.
