The Top 5 Goals of Serie A Round 4: A Carles Perez Stunner

Goals dried up in Serie A Round 3, but the entertainment on and off the pitch did not stop. Round 4 lived up to expectations as Napoli took on Atalanta and Inter hosted crosstown rivals Milan. 

There were 41 goals scored, at an average of 4.1 goals per game, and the average goes up if you take out the 0-0 draw played by Verona and Genoa. Napoli, Sampdoria, Sassuolo, Cagliari, and Udinese were all impressed in their victories. However, it was Roma’s 5-2 win that will be remembered from this weekend’s action. 

Some great chances were missed, and Giacomo Raspadori might still be shaking his head after his 60-yard dash came to nothing. M’Bala Nzola is one-up on Diego Farias after the Brazilian sent his shot wide. 

Some exceptional saves were made, with Gianluigi Donnarumma keeping Milan’s perfect start to the season intact, while Lorenzo Montipò ensured Benevento did not suffer a worse result than they deserved. 

Then there were goals—aplenty of great efforts. Edin Dzeko broke his duck for the season, while Victor Osimhen also managed his debut goal for the Partenopei. Tommaso Augello’s goal rang in the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, while Riccardo Orsolini would have hoped his strike earned the points for Bologna. Important and great goals.

It was a tough task to decide on the Top 5, but we have tried to do our task to the best of our abilities. So, without further ado, here is our list of Top 5 goals from Serie A Round 4.

Alvaro Morata vs Crotone

Andrea Pirlo and Juventus had to send a message that they are not a Cristiano Ronaldo inspired team. They failed to manage that and should not be unhappy with the 1-1 draw. It was new/old boy Alvaro Morata who combined with fellow additions Dejan Kulusevski and Federico Chiesa. The Old Lady’s equalizer had slick football that carved open the Pythagorean’s defense. Morata won the aerial ball and sent it in the path of Kulusevski. The Swedish international released Chiesa on the right flank, who crossed into the way of rushing Morata, who hit the back of the net.   


Domenico Berardi vs Bologna 

Bologna and Sassuolo were involved in a high scoring affair. The Rossoblu took a 3-1 lead but then let it slip to give the Neroverdi all the points on offer. Mattias Svanberg and Riccardo Orsolini sent great strikes to score, but it Domenico Berardi’s effort that stole the show. The Sassuolo attack took shape on the left side of the pitch before the ball fell to Berardi on the right flank. The switch saw the Italy international in acres of space at the edge of the box. Afforded too much time, he calmly sent his shot goal-bound with found its way into the left side netting.

Matteo Politano vs Atalanta

Sam Lammers was on the scoreboard for Atalanta yet again in Round 4. Gian Piero Gasperini would have been happier had his regular goal scorers also turned up for the fixture. La Dea were put to the sword by Napoli, and they thoroughly deserved it. Hirving Lozano scored a brace while Victor Osimhen opened his Partenopei account with a 30-yard effort. However, it was from the boots of Matteo Politano that the best goal of the night arrived. Receiving the ball from Fabian Ruiz, Politano hugged the right-wing before cutting in and unleashing a thunderous drive into the top-right corner for Napoli’s third.

Ignacio Pussetto vs Parma

Hernani Jr had all the time in the world before striking the ball into the net for Parma’s first. Samir Santos would equalize with an equally thunderous header. The game would go from 1-1 to 2-2 thanks to an own goal by Parma’s Simone Iacoponi, and the equalizer would come through Yann Karamoh. The exciting game had an equally exciting end as Ignacio Pussetto scored in the 88th minute. Rodrigo De Paul brought the ball forward before sending it to Stefano Okaka. The towering forward held the ball up and got Ignacio Pussetto involved. The Argentine attacker sent a thirty-yard effort into the left corner for the winner.

Carles Perez vs Benevento

Benevento lost 5-2 to Roma but the scoreline does not show the true image of the Serie A fixture. The Sorcerers were in the game until the second equalizer but lost their way afterward. Pedro Rodriguez scored for the second game running, while Edin Dzeko finished with a brace against his name. However, it was Carlez Perez who stole the show with his blistering run for Roma’s fifth and final of the night. The Barcelona youth academy graduate received the ball ten yards behind the half-way line before going on his marauding run. Perez evaded four Benevento defenders before sending a low shot into the bottom right corner for his first goal of the season. An exceptional goal from an exceptional talent.
