Interesting statistics from this month's Calcio Italia magazine...
Over the past three seasons the goal averages of the top European leagues have worked out...
Spain 2.69 per game
Germany 2.66 per game
Italy 2.57 per game
England 2.52 per game
Quite interesting given that the number of people who run Italian football down as defensive 0-0 stuff and put it out that the Premiership is the most exciting goal-ridden thing around. I would always have imagined Spain to be at the top, am a little surprised that Germany is strong on the goals front but I have always said that whilst the "top four" in England may currently be stronger than the "top four" in Italy, the whole of Serie A is more exciting than the Premiership. I have also researched this topic and found its a recurrent theme throughout the years.
