The best strikers in world football know their way around the penalty area, finding space where there appears to be none and firing in a shot.
Arsenal and Liverpool strikers feature amongst Real Madrid and FC Barcelona superstars in this list of the top shooting players in Europe’s top five leagues.
10. Carlos Tevez (Juventus)
Shots inside penalty area: 67
League goals: 18
Carlos Tevez has been a big success since signing for Juventus in the summer, making an already strong Old Lady even stronger. I probably could have phrased that better.
Tevez began the season up front on his own, but has since developed a productive strike partnership with Fernando Llorente – a sort of evolution of the little and large setup.
Four of the Argentine’s Serie A goals this season have been from outside the area, but his penalty box prowess has proved vital in Juve’s Scudetto pursuit.
