The number of strikers in the top four divisions are a familiar one to anyone who has followed English football.
But there is another statistic which has been quietly rising in recent years: the number of teams who have the highest number of goalscorer-to-goalkeepers ratios.
The figure is one of the most striking statistics in football: over the past decade, there have been an average of 6.8 goals for every one goal conceded, according to the Opta stats.
This season, that number has risen to 8.2 goals for per goal conceded.
And this trend is continuing in the other top four leagues: in La Liga, the number is 5.4 goals for for every goal conceded and in Serie A, the ratio is 7.3.
This means that in La and Serie A the two most prolific strikers in Europe have had an average goal-to:goal ratio of 8.7.
This is in a league where goalkeepers are expected to make as many saves as strikers and where goals have an impact on whether a team wins or loses a match.
It means that while teams can score with the highest ratio of goals for goals conceded in the world, they should expect the highest percentage of their goals scored from the most prolific striker.
There is, of course, another factor at play: in Serie B, for example, there is a player called Federico Berardi, who is scoring an average for each goal he scores.
And while he has scored fewer goals than his nearest competitor, he has been more successful than the other two.
In the last two seasons, Berardi has scored 4,051 goals for his club and taken in an average rating of 3.96, the third best in Serie D. This does not take into account the fact that he has played less games, but his total goals for this season is 3,742.
This has led to comparisons to former Serie A goal-scorer Gianluca Vialli, who was also scoring more goals than Berardi but was not the best.
But it is Berardi who is most likely to be compared to Vialli.
Both players scored goals in every Serie B match last season and the statistics clearly indicate that they are the two best strikers in Serie L. In Serie A this season, Berardis has scored 3,962 goals and taken an average score of 3,069.
This compares with 2,996 goals for Vialli and 1,982 goals from the former.
For the most part, this does not make him a good comparison, but it does give some idea of the difference between his numbers and the other great strikers in Italy.
And it is important to remember that goals are not the only things which can influence a team’s performance: the amount of goals scored, the quality of the attacking play, and the quality or quality of possession can also affect a team.
Juventus, for instance, have been extremely successful in scoring goals in Serie C this season: they have scored more than 1,000 goals, which is the most in the division.
The average goal scored in Serie E is 567.
It is a league in which scoring is very important, but scoring in Serie G has been even more important: in the last three seasons, Juventus have scored an average more than 500 goals per season.
For comparison, Inter Milan, who finished last season as runners-up to Juventus, scored just over 50 goals in 2014-15.
This year, they have only scored just under 50 goals, and they have not had a striker scoring more than 25 goals in a season since 2012-13.
It should also be noted that there are two other strikers in a top four league who do not have as high a goal total: former Barcelona and Bayern Munich striker Javier Mascherano.
Mascherana, who has been at Barcelona since 2007, has scored an incredible 5,874 goals for the club: the third highest total in the Champions League era.
And in LaLiga, his goal total has been almost twice as high: in 2013-14, he scored an amazing 3,846 goals, more than the next closest forward, Lionel Messi.
This suggests that the two great strikers of the past, Mascheran and Messi, have not only had a significant impact on their clubs’ success but also have contributed to their team’s success.
In LaLigas last season, Maschano scored an astonishing 6,895 goals, almost double the average goal scorer of the other players.
For those who want to know what happened in Serie F, it is the same story: Mascheranos scoring in this season has been a bit more modest: he has only scored a modest 1,848 goals, the second lowest total in this era.
In fact, his team’s average goal for goals for is just 3,400.
This indicates that he is not an outstanding striker, but the
