Serie A Round 20

1 Feb

We last checked Serie A in round 16, with Parma’s Sebastian Giovinco leading the AOI rankings, whilst Miroslav Klose was leading the goals vs Top 6 opponents. There’s been four more rounds since then, and some big games played – a resurgent Inter vs high flying Lazio and Juventus vs Udinese. But how does that leave the Index?

The big movers in terms of goals are big Zlatan, who now leads the scoring charts, closely pursued by deadly finisher Di Natale. Atalanta’s Denis hasn’t found the net since round 16, so loses top spot. Jovetic continues to catch the eye at Fiorentina, whilst Genoa’s Palacio has 5 goals in his last 3 games.

And it’s Rodrigo Palacio who now leads the way in goals vs Top 6 opponents. And this is for 9th placed Genoa. The speedy Argentinian scored against 3rd placed Udinese, and most recently has grabbed himself a brace in a 3-2 win over a stuttering Napoli.

Giovinco holds on to the big game player badge, though his rating was lowered after his 8th goal of the season vs lowly Siena (16th). Emanuele Calaio as managed to rid himself of the Flat Track Bully tag after 2 goals against 4th placed Lazio, and the opener in the draw with Napoli (6th). The Flat Track Bully label now belongs to Juventus’ free scoring midfielder Marchisio, who has an average opponent per goal of 13.33.

Elsewhere, Claudio Ranieri’s Inter Milan went on a 7 game winning run, which was finally ended this weekend against plucky Lecce. Pazzini scored 4 in this run, after putting a shaky start to his Internazionale career behind him.
