The Europa League season is done and dusted after the competition came to a nail-biting conclusion. In one of the most-anticipated finals, Italian side Roma and Spanish outfit Sevilla took on each other. There was very little to separate them since the Italians were led by the serial winner Jose Mourinho, while the Spaniards have a rich history in this competition. The end result though was a familiar sight with Sevilla’s love affair with the Europa League continuing for another season.
Although it was not an easy match by any stretch of imagination. Both sides had to dig deep and gave their all in the game. With scoreline reading 1-1 and nothing to separate them, the match headed into extra time and subsequently penalties. In the shootout, Sevilla comfortably won 4-1 to clinch the Europa League trophy. Let us look back at some of the interesting numbers from this action-packed competition, starting with the teams that have scored the maximum number of goals.
Which club scored the most goals in 2022-23 Europa League season?
The team at the top of this list is not one many would have anticipated to be where they are now. Dutch side Feyenoord topped the goal scoring chart with 23 strikes in the competition this season. It is even more astonishing to think that they managed to reach this number in just ten games. They did not go deep in the competition yet Feyenoord scored a good ratio of goals, which was not overtaken or matched by any side till the end of the tournament.
Two clubs occupy the second spot in this table. Losing finalists Roma and Premier League giants Manchester United are tied up on 21 goals. Erik ten Hag’s side were eliminated from the competition in the quarter-final stage to eventual winners Sevilla yet United are still sitting joint second in this list, illustrating the good run they enjoyed in this competition this season. Meanwhile, Roma took 15 games to reach 21 goals. Mourinho’s sides are not known for their attacking brilliance. It is the defensive side of things where they have flourished over the years.

Sevilla though were not part of this competition from the start. They were eliminated from the Champions League after managing only a third-place finish in their respective group.
