What is the format of the league?

Serie A follows a similar format to other top-flight divisions. There are no knockout stages in this league, but a table-like structure where the top 4 teams qualify for UEFA Champions League. The 5th-placed team plays in the UEFA Europa League group stages, while the 6th-placed team plays in the UEFA Conference League. In the meantime, the teams that finish in La Liga’s last three positions are relegated to the 2nd division.

Top Goal Scorers

It’s fair to say that obtaining goals is the most important factor in football, which is why keeping players who score goals in your Sorare squad makes perfect sense. Serie A has no shortage of such goal machines, here the ones who stood out in the 2021/2022 season.

Ciro Immobile – Lazio: 27 Goals
Lautaro Martinez – Internazionale: 21 Goals
Tammy Abraham – Roma: 17 Goals
Giovanni Simeone– Hellas Verona: 17 Goals
Gianluca Scamacca – Sassuolo: 16 Goals


Top Assists

Without the people who give them the ball, how do the goal scorers score their goals? Typically, they won’t, which is why assistance is as important as the previously discussed net finders. There is no shortage of playmakers in Serie A, so let’s take a look at the top five from the 2020/2021 campaign.

Domenico Berardi – Sassuolo: 14 Assists
Nicolò Barella-Internazionale: 12 Assists
Hakan Çalhanoğlu – Internazionale: 12 Assists
Sergej Milinković-Savić – Lazio: 11 Assists
Luis Alberto – Lazio: 10 Assists
Antonio Candreva – Sampdoria: 10 Assists


Top keeping

Every team’s goalkeeper is the last line of defence, the difference between victory and defeat. It is safe to assume that having someone with more experience between the sticks will improve the chances of success. Here are some of the best goalkeeping statistics from the 21/22 season in Serie A.

Per-game saves

Vid Belec – Salernitana: 4.1 saves per game (Total saves: 88)
Guglielmo Vicario – Empoli: 4.0 saves per game (Total saves: 152)

Lukasz Skorupski – Bologna: 3.5 saves per game (Total saves: 126)
Salvatore Sirigu – Genoa: 3.3 saves per game (Total saves: 123)

Clean sheets

The difference between a clean sheet on Sorare and your team’s overall score can be huge. It’s important to remember that a goalkeeper receives a decisive score if he keeps the ball out of his net (60 points minimum), which, in turn, gives defenders a score boost by 10 points. The goalkeepers on Sorare don’t come cheap, so let’s check out the guys who will give you valuable clean sheets.

Mike Maignan – Milan: 17 Clean Sheets
Rui Patrício – Roma: 15 Clean Sheets
Samir Handanović – Inter: 15 Clean Sheets
David Ospina – Napoli: 13 Clean Sheets
Łukasz Skorupski – Bologna: 12 Clean
