Roma’s Javier Pastore conquered our hearts this week with a delicious heel kick shot – precision and execution to give Roma an early lead in the Stadio Olimpico’s goal fest. In our selection of the Top 5 Serie A goals, the Argentinian preceded a lobber by Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic, and a volley by Mirco Antenucci that propelled SPAL to the top of the league!
That’s not the way to go, Inter. The Nerazzurri squandered a double lead built by Ivan Perisic and Stefan De Vrij last night, and threw away a match that they seemed to have won after just 30 minutes. Torino made it even in the second half thanks to Andrea Belotti and Soualiho Meite to snatch an unhoped-for point out of San Siro Stadium.
It’s still summer football, but whoever decided the fixtures of these initial Serie A rounds knows how to capture people’s attention. The second campionato matchday sees Juventus facing a Lazio side shaken by some alleged tension between President Claudio Lotito and coach Simone Inzaghi, while Milan make their seasonal debut at Napoli.
Finally! We just couldn’t wait anymore. For almost two months, we felt lonely, and deprived of the most thrilling pleasure in a Sunday afternoon: Calcio. But now it’s back, in its most exquisite form of the Italian Serie A. And so, directly from the Temple where supporters’ dreams come true, here is our Top 5 of the best goals scored in this opening round of Serie A 2018-19.
The hype surrounding Serie A 2018-2019 has been unprecedented in the recent seasons of the Italian top flight, but not many fans will have the will to celebrate at a goal scored on a football pitch this weekend, as the whole of Italy is still shocked at the tragedy that struck the city of Genova, where last Monday a motorway bridge collapsed taking 41 lives.
Winning at home, in Europe, and in the world, and collect all sort of star players. That was the credo of Silvio Berlusconi’s Milan since 1986 to 2012. However, the Rossoneri have been through quite a few troubled seasons recently, passing in the hands of a somewhat mysterious Chinese management before being taken over by U.S. investment fund Elliot.

Rumor is a Latin word that made it to the English-speaking world, to indicate those speculations or alleged pieces of news with no official confirmation. For Napoli and their supporters, the Summer of 2018 has been characterized by a very insistent and fascinating one: President Aurelio De Laurentiis is allegedly negotiating Edinson Cavani’s come back from PSG.
The role of goalkeeper has always been pretty much on the sideline of football news and stories, especially when it comes to the summer transfer market session. But since the last Champions League Final, and the World Cup in Russia 2018, it looks like things may be about to change, starting with the record transfer deal of Alisson Becker from Roma to Liverpool.
The purchase of Javier Pastore from Paris Saint Germain, and of young prospect Justin Kluivert from Ajax were not enough to put a smile on Roma supporters’ faces, as they were rather disappointed at the sales of some of their top stars like Radja Nainggolan and Alisson Becker, replaced by second-choice or mostly unknown players.
Their roster is still incomplete. This is what their transfer market session is showing, with Inter still looking for at least one defender and one midfielder – Sime Vrsaljko and Arturo Vidal being the top names. But comparing to the last season, the impression is that the Nerazzurri have already reduced their gap versus top Scudetto contenders Juventus and Napoli.
