Al Wahda centre forward Sebastian Tagliabue joined an exclusive club this weekend, rocketing in his 100th goal in the Arabian Gulf League.

Here, we compare his record to the leading scorers since the competition turned professional at the start of 2008/09:

ALI MABKHOUT

Club(s): Al Jazira

Games/goals: 164/108

Games per goal: 1.52

Mabkhout has grown from a wasteful prospect into the best indigenous goal scorer in Asia’s major leagues. At just 27, there are many more to come.

ASAMOAH GYAN

Club(s): Al Ain, Al Ahli (loan)

Games/goals: 97/101

Games per goal: 0.96

The African joined in his prime, before injuries took their toll; 95 of his goals came at Al Ain from 2011-15 and just six more followed on loan at Al Ahli in 2016/17.

SEBASTIAN TAGLIABUE

Club(s): Al Wahda

Games/goals: 106/100

Games per goal: 1.06

There is no great grace to the Argentine striker’s game. He’s simply a relentless scorer of goals. Is showing no signs of slowing down at 32-years old.

MAKHETE DIOP

Club(s): Al Dhafra, Shabab Al Ahli Dubai Club

Games/goals: 133/95

Games per goal: 1.4

The giant Senegalese’s tally would be even more impressive if he’d not loyally spent nearly five years at lowly Dhafra.

FABIO DE LIMA

Club(s): Al Wasl

Games/goals: 91/78

Games per goal: 1.17

It is not just the volume which impresses about the brilliant Brazilian, it’s also the variety. Long-range or tap-ins, free-kicks or headers, he does it all.
