Meazza and Altafini next for Totti

After surpassing the tally of Roberto Baggio last night, Francesco Totti is now targeting the 216 Serie A goals of Jose Altafini and Giuseppe Meazza.

Totti's brace at Bari in an enthralling 3-2 win saw him move on to 206 top-flight goals in his career, one more than the mythical Baggio, making him the fifth most prolific Serie A player in history.

The Giallorossi symbol now has only four players ahead of him in the all-time charts, with the duo of Altafini and Meazza just 10 strikes ahead.

While Totti appears to have enough left in his career to leapfrog the pair and possibly Gunnar Nordahl's total of 225, Silvio Piola's 274 will probably be beyond him.
