Here are top 5 teams with best goal scoring form:-
It is not very often that a Seria A club enters the list top goal scoring teams. However, Napoli has enjoyed a goal ratio of 2.29 goals per game. Scoring more than 2 goals per game is an incredible feat achieved by the team, given that their best star striker Higuain had left the club last season. After the departure of Higuain, finding goals was considered a big headache for the team. Napoli has scored 78 goals in 34, outscoring their rivals, the Old Lady in as many games. This shows the form the team has been in. Dries Mertens has been the top scorer for them scoring 22 goals in the league and replacing big boots of Higuain effectively.
#4 Bayern Munich:-
Bayern grab the fourth spot on the list, with a staggering goal ratio of 2.54 per game. To put that in perspective, the average goal scoring ratio this season in Bungesliga was 1.39 goals per game. They are miles ahead of their rivals Dortmund, who have scored at 2.09 goals per game. The dominance shown by them has been exemplary. They have scored 79 goals in 31 matches. Robert Lewandowski tops the chart for them scoring a massive chunk of their goals. He has scored 28 goals for FC Hollywood this season. Ribery is the only other player, who has managed to reach double figures with 11 goals in the season.

Ronaldo has looked little out of touch this season, but tops the charts of highest goal scorer for them with 20 goals in 26 appearances. However, to everyone’s surprise the second player on the list is Morata, who has not got regular chance from Zidane. He has scored 13 goals in 12 appearances.
#2 AS Monaco:-
The team that has won hearts with its performances in the Champions Trophy manages to fall on the second place on the table. They have been a revelation this season, scoring at rate of 2.80 goals per game, while the Ligue 1 average is just 1.30 goals per game.

The Catalonians did not have a good season as per their standards. They were knocked out of the Champions League and did not performance quite well in the League as well.
