The 20/21 Serie A season is over, and the following statistics are among the key analyses to be made of it. This article will look to rank the top Italian players in certain “classifications”: goals, assists, passes completed and saves made. All of these stats are based on data available on Figc.it, a bank of info on teams and individuals in the top league of Italian football – which can be freely read and analysed.
Starting with saves, the Italian keeper with the highest number of stops is Andrea Consigli of Sassuolo, who recorded 131 in 37 matches (3.5 a game). He is followed by Alessio Cragno of Cagliari (with 130 in 34 matches) and Emil Audero (122 in 37 matches).
As regards passes completed, Sassuolo centre-midfielder Manuel Locatelli is the top Italian in the category, with 2,749 in 34 games (80.9 per game). 41 passes behind him is his teammate Gian Marco Ferrari (with 2,708 in 34 matches), while Inter centre-back Alessandro Bastoni sits in third place with 2,243 completed passes in 33 matches.
Federico Chiesa is the Italian with the most assists this year, registering a total of 9, ahead of Antonio Candreva with 8 and the trio of Domenico Berardi, Lorenzo Insigne and Nicolò Barella, who all have 7 each.
Finally, we come to goals scored. Ciro Immobile leads the way in these charts for a second straight season: he scored 20 goals from 35 appearances, which propelled Lazio to Europa League qualification. Second top-scorer from Italy is Lorenzo Insigne, who, with 19 goals in 35 games, has comfortably beaten his previous best goalscoring season in Serie A. In third in this category is Domenico Berardi of Sassuolo, who bagged 17 goals in only 30 games.
