By analyzing the stats relative to the Top 5 Leagues, data reveals that only two football giants are performing better than Di Francesco’s men, I am talking about Real Madrid (18.4 shots pg in 29 games) and Bayern Munich (18.3 shots pg in 27 games).

It’s also possible to analyze how these numbers relate to the goal scored. In this case, the performances of the giallorossi seem to be very disappointing. Roma scored 49 goals in the Italian Serie A while Napoli 63, and Juventus 67.

In this case, a real comparison with the other European leagues cannot be done because of the very different tactical and competitive level between them. Anyway, it’s possible to confirm that Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have a super offensive prolificity having respectively scored 73 and 66 goals in their domestic leagues.
