Amoura has led the line really well for Union SG this season and now that he is back from AFCON 2023, we expect the league leaders to win the league comfortably.

Union SG's goal machine

This is Amoura's first season with UnioN SG after making the move from Swiss side Lugano and the Algerian international could well get a big move this summer after scoring 17 goals in 14 starts for the Champions-elect.
