Joao Pedro most prolific Brazilian in 2020

Cagliari forward Joao Pedro has scored 15 goals for the Rossoblu in 2020 and is the most efficient Brazilian in the five leading European Leagues.

From January this year, there are no Brazilians who have fared better than the Casteddu striker, with four goals down to the next player on the list.

Matheus Cunha from Hertha Berlin is second with 11 goals, whilst Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus completes the podium with 10 goals.

Everton attacker Richarlison has scored nine goals in 2020, with Neymar at fifth with only eight goals at PSG.

Joao Pedro has scored eight goals in 14 Serie A games this term, continuing his great form. Last term, he was pushed forward in the absence of Leonardo Pavoletti, and finished the 2019-20 season with 18 goals in 36 games.

The 28-year-old has scored 65 goals in total for the Rossoblu and has appeared 208 times since his move to Sardinia from Estoril Praia for €1.3m in September 2014.
