The Serbian front man, Prijović, has spent 182 more minutes on the pitch in comparison to the Iranian Ansarifard. On the other hand, PAOK’s Prijović has a much more clinical shot to goal ratio having only 45 shots on goal whereas Ansarifard has had 12 more attempts, with a total of 57 shots this season.

Prijović has scored one goal per every 3 shots taken which is a very impressive strike rate. The Olympiacos striker ultimately gets involved much more in the team’s build up play having had 5 assists for the season, whereas Prijović has only provided 3 assists for PAOK.

The league’s top goal scorer for the 2017/18 season will be decided in the final two matches. Olympiacos will host Panetolikos before traveling to play PAS Giannina while PAOK will travel to Athens for a derby matchup against Panathinaikos before hosting relegated Platanias on the final matchday.

Ansarifard (Olympiacos) Games: 22, Goals 15, Home Goals: 9, Away Goals: 6.

Prijović (PAOK) Games: 23, Goals 15, Home Goals 11, Away Goals 4.
