Serie A Top Scorer 2022/23 Predictions, Odds, Picks

  • The race to be crowned Serie A top scorer promises to be a dramatic one
  • The Serie A season gets under way on August 13 and will finish on June 4
  • The campaign will take a break in November and December for the World Cup

The Serie A title race looks set to be one of the closest in Europe in 2022/23, and the battle to finish as the Serie A top scorer could be just as fiercely contested. From young hotshots and incoming prospects to proven veterans and established stars, there are numerous contenders to finish at the top of the goal charts.

The Serie A top scorer receives the Capocannoniere award, officially known as the Paolo Rossi Trophy as of 2021. The prize dates all the way back to 1898 and is seen as the pinnacle of the Italian game as far as individual awards are concerned. Who will do it this season? Let’s take a look at some of the candidates.

Serie A Top Scorer Romelu Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku is the joint-favorite to finish as the Serie A top scorer in 2022/23. When the Belgium international moved to Premier League side Chelsea last summer, few anticipated him being back in Serie A so soon. But a failure to fit into Thomas Tuchel’s tactical setup at Stamford Bridge means Lukaku has been loaned back to Inter, for whom he scored 47 league goals between 2019 and 2021.

Dusan Vlahovic of Juventus is level with Lukaku at the top of the betting charts. The Serbia international was the second-highest goalscorer last season, and he should do even better this time around now that he has had a few months to gel with his Juve team-mates.

Victor Osimhen of Napoli and Tammy Abraham of Roma might be good outside bets. Osimhen found the back of the net 14 times in 27 matches in 2021/22, and would have gotten closer to the Capocannoniere had he stayed fit for longer. Abraham scored 17 goals for Jose Mourinho’s side – a very impressive return given it was his first season in Serie A.
