Serie A Striker Club Review – Cagliari

Cagliari struggled with their defence last season, but they were quite decent going forward and scored 55 goals over the course of the season.

It was the 11th best scoring effort in the league – same as the league position in which the club from Sardinia finished their season. It was a remarkable effort from Cagliari, considering the fact that it was their first season in top tier following their relegation to Serie B in 2015.

Veteran striker Marco Borriello led the Cagliari forward line for most of the season, and he also finished the season as the club’s top goal scorer. Besides Borriello, the likes of Diego Farias, Federico Melchiorri and Marco Sau also contributed with valuable goals for Cagliari.

Let’s take a look in detail at how Cagliari strikers fared in EuroFantasyLeague last season:

Borriello, who turned 34 this month, was the leading goalscorer for his side with 16 goals. He had joined Cagliari on a free transfer last summer, and he proved to be one of the key players for the recently-promoted side. The Italian striker, who has played for the likes of Milan, Juventus and Roma during his illustrious career, picked up 36 appearances for his side. He was available for just 3.5m in the market, and his point tally of 60 suggests that he was good value for money. He ended the season with an impressive P/P score of 17.7.

Marco Sau was the most expensive Cagliari striker at 6m. He managed a total of seven goals and four assists in his 34 league appearances. The Italian striker, who has progressed through Cagliari youth ranks, finished far behind Borriello with a total of 31 points. His P/P score read 5.0 at the end of the season.

Brazilian striker Diego Farias could manage only 20 appearances, including 12 starts, but he was a useful player for his side and contributed with seven goals and two assists. He was available for 5m in the market and put together a total of 28 points. His P/P score was slightly better than Sau’s at 6.4.

Federico Melchiorri, who was available for only 3m, could manage only four starts and six substitute appearances over the course of the season. He scored three goals for a point-total of 11. His P/P score was just 1.

Han Kwang-song, an 18-year-old striker from North Korea, made his breakthrough into first-team towards the end of last season. He managed only five substitute appearances and ended the season with a solitary goal. He became the first North Korean player to score in Serie A when he scored in the 3-2 defeat to Torino in April. He was priced at 1m and picked up four points.
