The top scorer midfielder in Europe scores braces as never before


Pizzi plays good, creates, scores, breaks records at Benfica and shines as no other midfielder in the Top 10 Leagues of the Old Continent. 

Pizzi is making a remarkable start at Benfica. The Portuguese midfielder, who already scored ten times in 2019/20 season, is currently the top scorer midfielder in the Top 10 European Leagues.
