Shots on Goal: Dzeko Chasing the Portuguese Prodigy Ronaldo (Stats)

The Serie A 2018-19 just begun but Juventus are already leading the group at the top of the standings. Dzeko behind Ronaldo for shots on goal. 

Roma are not passing through a great moment. After having collected three points in the first away match of the 2018-19 Serie A season against Torino, the giallorossi drew 3-3 at home against Atalanta and suffered a burning defeat in Milan 2-1.

The poor defensive performances of Eusebio Di Francesco‘s men did not compromise the offensive efficiency of the top Roma  star Edin Dzeko though. The Bosnia international is a great striker able to make a difference as he did last year when he dragged his teammates to the Champions League semifinals.
