The Top-Five Set-Piece Takers in Serie A
Set-piece situations have always been a threat to the goal. This is particularly true when the dormant ball is played by set-piece experts. In the history of Serie A, there have been two particularly notable set-piece takers, one stands out due the enormous power of his shots, the other by his excellent technique.
You don’t need to be an expert in Serie A to know that I’m talking about the two legends Sinisa Mihajlovic and Andrea Pirlo. Both top the Series A list of all-time set-piece takers, each having 28 goals to their name, putting them both far ahead of well-known stars like Alessandro del Piero (22), Roberto Baggio and Francesco Totti (21 each).
