We've now arrived at a new era and some familiar names have completed a brilliant 2023-24 campaign alongside some new names. It's time we take a look at the players with the most goals in the UCL this season.

Harry Kane joined Bayern Munich ahead of the 2023-24 season and started scoring goals for fun. Unfortunately, he had to finish another season without a major trophy but he played his part well by scoring plenty of goals. The England skipper popped up with some crucial goals in the UEFA Champions League 2023-24 season with Bayern which helped the German side reach the Semi-Final. 

The former Tottenham forward scored four times in the group stage and followed that up with a brace against Lazio in the last 16. He also scored an important goal against Arsenal in the Quarter-Final and also against Real Madrid in the first leg of the Semi-Final. However, Real Madrid knocked out Bayern Munich out of the competition.

This was Kylian Mbappe's last season at PSG and he didn't disappoint the fans and his team. The French sensation scored an important goal in the game against Newcastle United in the group stage. Mbappe scored three times in total during the group phase. He haunted Sociedad in the knockout stages, netting once in the first leg and twice in the return fixture to steer PSG through to the quarter-final. Then he scored a match-winning brace against Barcelona in the second leg of the Quarter-Final. However, PSG were knocked out of the competition in the Semi-Final by Borussia Dortmund.

Five of Griezmann's six UCL 2023-24 goals came in the group stage, but he also found the back of the net in a crucial victory over last season's finalists Inter in the last 16. However, Atletico lost to Dortmund in the Quarter-Final and their impressive run came to an end. The French playmaker was in his top form this season and Atletico were looking like one of the favourites to feature in the Final but Dortmund came out of nowhere and shocked everyone including Diego Simeone's side.

Erling Haaland didn't score in either of his first two Champions League games this season, but he was never going to stay quiet for long. He netted twice in each game against Young Boys before striking in the victory over Leipzig to climb up to five goals, but two quiet performances in the quarter-final against Real Madrid saw his side's campaign come to an end. He was not playing his best football this season and the fans and media criticised him a lot this season. He was ghosted in the big games which led Man City to an average season by their standards.

5. Vinicius Jr (Brazil/Real Madrid) - 6 Goals
