The striker from Gabon finds the net again versus Galatasaray and now has scored seven goals in 10 matches as a Barça player
Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has hit the ground running at FC Barcelona since joining in the January transfer market. With his winner in the 2-1 win over Galatasaray in Istanbul on Thursday, he now has a total of seven goals in 10 matches in a Barça shirt.
After failing to find the net in his first three matches, Aubameyang opened his account in style with a hat-trick against Valencia in Mestalla. The Gabon international followed that up with goals against Athletic and Osasuna in the league and against Napoli and Galatasaray in Europe, the latter two matches seeing him score decisive strikes in the second legs in Italy and Turkey respectively.
The UEFA Europa League is a favourite competition for Aubameyang and he now has 24 goals in 47 appearances and is joint third on the list of scorers from the group stages and beyond since it was renamed after being formally known as the UEFA Cup. The Gabon striker is level with Munas Dabbur and just two behind Aritz Aduriz on 26 and six behind all time leader Radomel Falcao.
Aubameyang on Sunday will have to chance to feature in his first Clásico against Real Madrid and extend his excellent run of form.
