LOSC Lille forward Yusuf Yazıcı has joined Benfica midfielder Pizzi at the top of the UEFA Europa League scoring charts with his seventh goal of the campaign – although neither player will be able to add to their totals as both their clubs bowed out in the round of 32.

While Pizzi drew a blank in the 3-2 defeat at Arsenal that ended Benfica's hopes, Yusuf Yazıcı converted a penalty at Ajax, yet it was not enough to prevent a 2-1 loss that confirmed LOSC's exit. Munas Dabbur of Hoffenheim is a goal behind the leading pair, but his side were also knocked out in the last 32, leaving Carlos Vinícius, who struck two in Tottenham's second leg on Wednesday, as the sole player among the current top four who is still involved.
