As we enter game week 27, Juventus occupy the top spot in the table with 66 points. The only challenge they currently face for the league title comes from second-placed AS Roma, who are seven points behind the leaders.
In one of the key fixtures this weekend, Roma will host third-placed Napoli on Saturday. A day later, Juventus will travel to Udinese, Inter Milan will travel to Cagliari, and fourth-placed Atlanta will host Fiorentina.
Our striker list bears a similar look to the lists from the recent weeks. Let’s take a look:
1. Gonzalo Higuain – Juventus
The Juventus frontman continues to top our list. Following a run of five goals and two assists in five league games, Higuain failed to add to his tally against Empoli last weekend. However, he still has enough points, 80, to keep the top spot to himself. The Argentinean, who costs 11m in the transfer market, has scored 19 goals and provided two assists in 26 league appearances this season.
P/P score: 7.5
2. Mauro Icardi – Inter Milan
Following a run of three league games without a goal, Icardi returned to goal scoring ways last weekend but couldn’t avoid his side’s 3-1 defeat to AS Roma. He has scored 16 goals and provided eight assists this season and is not too far behind Higuain at 78 points. He is slightly cheaper in the market at 10m.
P/P score: 8.2
3. Edin Dzeko – AS Roma
Dzeko is one of the three strikers who are currently leading the Serie A goalscoring charts with 19 goals. He could only provide an assist in the 3-1 win over Inter last week, but, prior to that, he had scored 11 goals in eight consecutive appearances for Roma. Besides his goals, he has also provided three assists and currently has 75 points in his account. He is available for 9m in the transfer market.
P/P score: 8.6
4. Andrea Belotti – Torino
The young Torino striker has been a revelation in Serie A this season. The 23-year-old, who was an unknown quantity in football not long ago, is currently leading the scoring charts with 19 goals. In his last four league games, he has found the net on five times. He has put together 73 points, and he is available at just 2.5 in the market.
P/P score: 30.8
