Anna Vyakhireva best goal scorer in Champions League

Even though Vipers Kristiansand missed out on the Final four party, an individual accolade ended up within the Norwegian team. Anna Vyakhireva produced 113 goals from the right back position.

– I am quite surprised that this is happening, that I am the top scorer of the competition, I just want to say that I am extremely proud, not just for myself, but for the team, it has been a tough season and we are sad that we are not in Budapest, she said to

The advantage of the players that travelled to Budapest didn’t play out. Nora Mørk and Henny Reistad both delivered on the final day, but 13 goals each wasn’t enough to catch up with Vyakhireva.

The 29-year-old also had high numbers, eleven goals against Esbjerg away and ten goals versus Debrecen in the play-off round. But the consistency stood out as Vyakhireva won by three goals to Mørk (110) with Reistad and Sarah Bouktit from Metz HB on a shared third spot.
