Player to watch – Evanilson

Evanilson leads the way in front of goal for Porto this season with nine league goals, two of which have come from the penalty spot.

Porto's main source of goals

Often playing the role of a squad player since joining Porto, Evanilson has made the striking role his own in the 2023/24 season. The Brazilian forward looks set to beat his best-ever total for the Portuguese giants this season (14 in the 2021/22 campaign) having scored nine times in 15 starts so far.
