Bundesliga top scorer's race: Harry Kane finishes top of the 2023/24 chart


Harry Kane succeeds Christopher Nkunku and Niclas Füllkrug as Bundesliga top scorer in 2023/24. bundesliga.com runs through the final standings.

Harry Kane
Club: Bayern Munich
Position: Striker
Goals: 36
Appearances: 32

Kane took his Bundesliga tally to an astonishing 32 goals from only 29 games despite Bayern's surprising 3-2 defeat to Heidenheim, meaning the Londoner has scored more goals than any other player in their debut Bundesliga campaign. Kane ended with four hat-tricks and five braces - the latest in a 2-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt on Matchday 31 - among his haul, but injury ended any hopes of beating Robert Lewandowski's single-season record of 41 goals. Still, on an individual level, Kane can be more than proud of his performances this term.

Serhou Guirassy 
Club: VfB Stuttgart
Position: Striker
Goals: 28
Appearances: 28

Guirassy was on a league-leading 14 goals after only seven games, smashing Lewandowski's previous best of 11 at that juncture. He hit five multiples in that time, including two hat-tricks, before missing a couple of games through injury. The Stuttgart No.9 finishes up eight efforts behind Kane, having played several games fewer due to those injuries and Africa Cup of Nations duty. But he's netted 12 times since returning to club action in February, including a brace in 3-2 victory over Wolfsburg on Matchday 24 which started off a scoring run of five straight games.

Loïs Openda
Club: RB Leipzig
Position: Striker
Goals: 24
Appearances: 34

Openda had big shoes to fill at Leipzig following Nkunku's move to Chelsea during the summer transfer window, but he's made it look easy. The Belgium international has gone from strength to strength since scoring on his Bundesliga debut, with back-to-back braces on Matchdays 8 and 9 contributing to an impressive return of 13 goals after 19 games - only one Leipzig player has previously scored more at the same juncture in a season (Timo Werner, 2019/20). He continued his impressive form in 2024 and ends up with 24 efforts - only Kane and German legend Uwe Seeler (30) have managed more in their debut Bundesliga campaign.

Deniz Undav
Club: VfB Stuttgart
Position: Striker
Goals: 18
Appearances: 30

Undav - voted the Bundesliga's November and January Player of the Month - soared further up the scoring charts by netting a hat-trick as Stuttgart claimed a brilliant 5-2 win over Leipzig on Matchday 19. Subsequent strikes against Freiburg, Mainz and Heindenheim took his tally to 14, consolidating his status as the current season's top-scoring German national. His goals this term have led to inclusion in Julian Nagelsmann's squad for UEFA Euro 2024 - just reward for a fantastic term.

Maximilian Beier
Club: Hoffenheim
Position: Striker
Goals: 16
Appearances: 33

After some strong displays at Hannover in Bundesliga 2 last season, Beier was included in Hoffenheim's first-time squad for this term, and it is fair to say he hasn't disappointed. He hit the ground running, netting seven times in his first nine matches as Die Kraichgauer started strongly themselves. An eight-game drought followed, but the 22-year-old bounced back with a goal against Freiburg in a 3-2 defeat on Matchday 18. Beier ended on three braces, and capped off his season with a goal against Bayern Munich on the final day.

Ermedin Demirović
Position: Striker
Goals: 15
Appearances: 31

Demirović is enjoying his most prolific Bundesliga campaign yet with 15 goals, including seven since the turn of the year. The Augsburg captain's previous German top-flight best for single-season goals was eight in 2022/23, while 14 is a new club record for a Bundesliga campaign. The Bosnia and Herzegovina forward also has an outstanding eight assists to his name.

Andrej Kramarić
Club: Hoffenheim
Position: Striker
Goals: 15
Appearances 30

Kramaric continues to lead from the front at Hoffenheim, and finishes with 10 more or goals in a Bundesliga campaign for the seventh successive term. Like Beier, he started well with four strikes in his first six. Goals were not as regular from then on, but he reminded everyone of his class once more during the campaign's business end, netting six in as many games including a hat-trick against Bayern to bring down the curtain on the term in style.
