Scoring Minutes: Roma a Slow Starter but Great Finisher

The giallorossi need time to deep into the match but their tactical acumen pays in the long run.

The season is almost over and the Lupi showed off a very clear scoring trend in the 29 Serie A matches played so far.
It’s interesting to highlight that the average time in which Roma scores the first goal is the 38th minute (34′ at home; 41′ away).

By focussing the attention on the scoring minutes, it is clear that Di Francesco‘s crew start slow but are able to increase their goal proficiency later in the match. According to the stats provided by ‘’, Roma scores most of its goals between 30-45′ min (10), 45-50′ min (10), and 75-90′ min (10). The performances of the giallorossi slightly decrease between 60-75′ min (8 goals scored).

How are Juventus and Napoli doing?

Juventus seems to be always ready to kill the match in the first half. The bianconeri scored 16 goals between 15-30′ min. When their opponents lose hope Allegri‘s men widen the gap (15 goals scored between 60-75’ min).

Napoli‘s performances are, instead, very linear. Sarri‘s men love to keep the possession of the ball. Their Tiki-Taka often brings Mertens, Insigne, and Callejon in favorable positions to stub the goalkeeper. Most of their goals have been scored between 30-45′ min (14) but the Azzurri are also very efficient between 60-75′ min (13).
