How many matches in a row has a football player managed to score in Europe’s Top 5 Leagues?

  • You might want to add a time frame to the question. Also are you looking for consecutive games the player played, or consecutive league games? That makes a difference if a player scores 5 games in a row, is rested due to injury one game, and then scores 5 games in a row again.

  • Using abbreviations in titles, especially those that are uncommon, especially where they are ungrammatical, does not increase quality.

  • Further, the inclusion of tags merely to fill out the limit, when this requires excluding tags which are equally applicable, is not likely to make them more searchable.

  • The question was about the player scoring in the top 5 leagues, So it would make sense to include those leagues in the tags as well? What's your point? Commented Dec 19, 2019 at 5:07
