Who Are the Best Crossers in Football in 2024?

By Eduard Bănulescu

The best football crossers in the world are able to help their team take advantage of tactics as old as time, or at least as old as football. While some managers are obsessed with sophisticated tactics involving possession, pressing, and the most clever passes, others know that crossing the ball to the big man up front still works.

This is why we are celebrating the players who can put the ball in the penalty area for the strikers to use. These are the best crossers of the ball in 2024 across the major leagues.

Best crossers of the ball in 2024?

Who Are the Best Crossers in Football in 2024?

Alfie Doughty (Luton Town)

Alfie Doughty has not given up on Luton Town’s chances of surviving in the Premier League. Sure, when you’re Luton, getting involved in furious counter-attacks and crossing the ball is one of the few ways to score goals. Doughty has provided seven assists so far. He’s crossed the ball 284 times across 32 games, more than any other player in the top 5 domestic leagues. Talk about commitment!

David Raum (RB Leipzig)

David Raum is RB Leipzig’s secret weapon this season. When all else fails, the German club can still rely on players of Die Mannschaft to provide an attacking threat. Most of the time, he does this by crossing the ball in the box. He’s one of the top-rated players in Europe for this. It’s resulted in seven assists across the season.

Kieran Trippier (Newcastle)

Kieran Trippier is a truly special player. He leads in many of the most important stats categories across the Premier League. And it’s no surprise that the wing-back is also one of the best crossers of the ball. This has been one of the most important ways in which he has managed his ten assists this season.

Romain Del Castillo (Brest)

I’ve recently written about the tactics that have made Eric Roy’s Stade Brestois 29 an unlikely Champions League candidate in Ligue 1. Romain Del Castillo‘s influence and ability to interpret those instructions are a big reason for everything that’s gone so well for the club.  Working in tandem with full-back Kenny Lala, Castillo has provided eight goals and eight assists in Ligue 1 this season. UCL next on the list?

Antonio Candreva (Salernitana)

Antonio Candreva has got unfinished business. Why should the 37-year-old hang up his boots when he is playing so well and bringing so much passion to his performances? This season, he has provided six goals and six assists for Salernitana and has registered some of the best statistics in Europe for successful crosses.

Tej Savanier (Montpellier)

Tej Savanier, while not a household name across the world, will certainly be familiar to dedicated FootballCoin fans. Savanier has consistently been one of the best performers across Ligue 1. At the time of writing, he has provided 214 crosses while scoring eight goals and making five assists.

Pascal Gross (Brighton and Hove Albion)

There have been few moments of pure brilliance for Roberto de Zerbi’s Brighton this season. Many of them have come from the highly industrious Pascal Gross. The midfielder is one of the best crossers of the ball in the world. His ten Premier League assists go some way to proving that.

Alex Grimaldo (Bayer Leverkusen)

It’s a season that will go down in German football history. Xavi Alonso‘s Bayer Leverkusen has won the BuLi title and has done it in style. Alex Grimaldo played his part wonderfully. He is the player with the highest level of expected assists across the major leagues and one of the top crossers of the ball. He has also scored nine goals and assisted twelve more.

Antonee Robinson (Fulham)

Fans of U.S. football will be looking toward Antonee Robinson with great hope ahead of Copa America. The midfielder has done well in England. He has registered six assists and has been one of the best crossers of the ball in the world’s most competitive domestic league.

Antonino Gallo (Lecce)

Lecce is fighting for a mid-place finish in the Serie A this season. It’s quite unexpected, but a result of a good strategy. Part of it has involved giving support to young players like 24-year-old Antonino Gallo who has made 26 crosses into the penalty area, getting two assists along the way.
