Ghana striker Ebenezer Assifuah continues to flourish in the French Ligue II following his impressive performances.

He leads the chart of top strikers in the French lower division league.

He beats off competition from strike partner Nathael Julan and Cristian Lopez of RC Lens. The LFP published the ranking of Ligue 2 strikers and passers after 3 days.

In the rankings of the scorers, Cristian Lopez climbs to the 6th position after his second goal of the season inscribed at the Bonal stadium.

The Spaniard is ahead of his team-mate Ivan Lendric, author of his first goal against the Sochaux. The podium is made up of Ebenezer Assifuah (Le Havre, 4 goals), Nathaël Julan (Le Havre, 3 goals) and Florian Martin (Sochaux, 3 goals).

Assifuah has played 234 minutes since the start of the season. He scored 6 times out of 10 attempts. His strikes resulted in 4 achievements. It scores every 58.5 minutes.

The rankings take into account, beyond the number of goals or passes, the time of play or the way to score (penalty, etc.).
