Bundesliga Top Scorers: Matchday 25 – Modeste Flying After Hat-Trick

Matchday 25 in the Bundesliga saw only 15 goals over the nine matches including but there were six eight at the Allianz as Bayern Munich thrashed Hamburg. We take a look at how the results affected the top scorers in the league.

Anthony Modeste moved within one goal of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the top of the Bundesliga scoring chart after scoring a hat-trick against Hertha Berlin.

It came in a 4-2 win for Koln that moved them within three points of their opponents in the European spots.

The Frenchman now has five goals in his last two games following his brace against Ingolstadt last week.

He now has 22 goals for the season, the most for a Koln player since Lukas Podolski’s 24 in 2004/05. Modeste still has nine games to better that.

Borussia Dortmund are pushing for second spot in the table, they’re now just three points below RB Leipzig after a 1-0 win over Ingolstadt.

Aubameyang scored the only goal of the game after 14 minutes, moving him onto 23 goals for the season.

He is the league’s top scorer and is still averaging better than a goal a game (88 mpg), the only player over six goals to do so.

The 27-year-old is now just two goals away from equalling his 25-goal season from last year. Should he beat that he will become the first player to score more than 25 league goals since Manfred Burgsmüller in the 1980/81 season.

Slightly further down the list are Vedad Ibisevic and Sandro Wagner; both players scored at the weekend to move on to 11 goals each.
