Lautaro Martinez continues his prolific scoring streak for Inter Milan, solidifying his position at the top of the Serie A Golden Boot race by netting a crucial goal against Juventus.

In the aftermath of Matchday 13 in the 2023-24 season, Sports Brief examines the leading scorers in Italy’s premier league:

1. Lautaro Martinez (Inter Milan, 13 goals)
Martinez consistently delivers during pivotal moments for Inter Milan. The Argentine striker secured an important first-half equalizer against Juventus, salvaging a point for Inter in their high-stakes clash last Sunday, as reported by Eurosport.

This goal propelled Martinez’s Serie A goal count to 13 for the season. He has found the net in eight out of Inter’s 13 games so far, with his standout performance against Salernitana standing out.

Martinez etched his name in Serie A history during that match, becoming the first player to score four goals as a substitute.

2. Olivier Giroud (AC Milan, 7)
Giroud remained static at seven goals following AC Milan’s 1-0 victory over Fiorentina last Saturday. However, the French striker received a two-match Serie A suspension due to a red card in their clash against Lecce. As a result, he now trails Martinez by six goals after Matchday 13.

3. Domenico Berardi (Sassuolo, 7)
Berardi joined the second spot on the scorer’s list by netting twice in Sassuolo’s thrilling 4-3 triumph against Empoli over the weekend. His penalty in the 66th minute gave Sassuolo a 3-2 lead. Despite Matias Vina’s own goal leveling the score at 3-3 in the 86th minute, Berardi’s contributions secured his place among the top scorers.
