Roma 

Certainly one of the more surprising lists as Edin Dzeko – the Giallorossi’s leading scorer over the past few seasons – ranks third. Il Faraone leads the way as he looks set to have his best scoring record since the 2012/13 season; Serbian defender Aleksandar Kolarov is showing that he still has a lot to offer with that rocket of a left-foot.

Ciro Immobile continues to be in the spotlight for the Biancocelesti 🦅. However, last seasons top scorers are struggling to find the back of the net this season: Lazio have just 32 ⚽️ from 23 matches (AVG of 1.39/match) in the Serie A TIM.

Fabio Quagliarella seems to age like fine wine 🍷 as the striker continues to be more and more prolific in front of goal. The now 36-year-old 🇮🇹 has 62 goals for the Blucerchiati in three years and is a threat to every club he faces.

Fiorentina

Although Marco Benassi leads the scoring from midfield, this Fiorentina attack is one of the brightest in the Serie A TIM. Acquiring Luis Muriel was just another cherry on top of the icing 🍒.
