Higuain can match Rossi

Gonzalo Higuain will match Antonio Conte and Paolo Rossi if he scores for Juventus against Bologna on Sunday.

The Argentinian striker has scored 43 goals in 77 games since joining the Bianconeri from Napoli in the summer of 2016, meaning it takes him slightly under two games to score one goal.

His record so far has him 40th in the all-time top-scorer list for the Old Lady, but he can match two club legends this weekend.

Conte, who is currently Chelsea manager, managed 44 goals in 419 games in his role as a combative midfielder, with the feat taking him 13 seasons.

Rossi managed it in less time, with the 1982 World Cup hero getting his 44 in two spells across six seasons and 138 games.

Paulo Dybala is currently 13 goals ahead of his compatriot in terms of goalscorers in the team, with both looking to crack the 100 barrier, something only 13 players have managed for Juve so far.

Alessandro Del Piero is way out in front in terms of goals with 289, 110 more than second-place Giampiero Boniperti.
