Gabigol adds up staggering numbers when we take the cut of the last five editions of the Brazilian Championship. The striker is, by far, the one who scored the most goals in the competition since 2018, with 75 balls in the net.
And a number that makes Gabriel’s mark even more relevant is the distance to the second place on the list, Gilberto. There are 29 more goals for the Flamengo shirt 9, with 57 fewer matches played.
Gabi’s teammates, Bruno Henrique (43 goals) and Pedro (41 goals) also appear in the top 5. The other to be among the top five is Diego Souza, who is currently playing in Serie B of the Brasileirão with Grêmio.
