An insight into the most prolific divisions – based on player representation – at Euro 2020 has been forthcoming online on Friday.
A wonderful summer of European football is of course set to come to a head this Sunday.
On the back of a 4-week stretch packed with goals, drama, upsets and more, Italy and England will go head to head at Wembley, for the title of the continent’s finest international outfit.
The former are of course in the midst of a frankly staggering stretch of form, having not fallen to defeat in any of their last 33 fixtures across all competitions.
Roberto Mancini’s men also won each and every one of their 10 qualifying fixtures, along with six straight Euro 2020 outings to date.

Upcoming opponents England, though, will also head into the action in two days’ time brimming with confidence.
The Three Lions have too enjoyed a fine summer, with the defensive strength boasted by Gareth Southgate’s side aptly highlighted by the fact that Mikkel Damsgaard’s stunning free-kick on Wednesday marked the first occasion on which Jordan Pickford has been beaten at Euro 2020.
Serie A leads the way
It should therefore come as little surprise to discover that, as things stand, the two leading divisions when it comes to goals scored this summer will be represented by their respective national outfits in this weekend’s tournament showpiece.
What perhaps will come as a surprise, however, is which of the Premier League and Serie A sits top of the goals scored charts.
As things stand, it is the latter who are flying the flag when it comes to finding the net, having rattled off a hefty 36 goals over the last four weeks.
This marks a full seven more than the English top-flight, with the Bundesliga a close 3rd:
