Top 5 Goals from Serie A Round 10: Milinkovic Savic Demoralizes Spezia

Another exciting week in Serie A as Milan maintained their lead at the top of the points table. The Rossoneri did not have Zlatan to lead the lines but came out on top.

The chasing pack of Inter, Lazio, Juventus, and Napoli also registered wins in their league commitments. Sassuolo limped out of the top-four as they were held to a goalless draw by Roma.

With two goalless draws, two 1-1 results, and a match abandoned, the frequency of goals dropped. However, the quality continues to won fans. With 20 goals scored over the weekend, it was at the Orogel Stadium in Cesena – Spezia’s temporary home – where there was the most footballing joy for fans and neutrals.

So, without further ado, here are the top five goals from Round 10.

Achraf Hakimi vs Bologna

The Nerazzurri are the leaders in the goals scored column and are beginning to find their rhythm. Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring for Inter, but Achraf Hakimi took the plaudits for his brace. Any one of the two from the Moroccan could have made our list, but we take his second effort. Cutting in from the right flank, he evaded advances from Bologna defenders before unleashing a shot with no answer from Lukasz Skorupski.

Razvan Marin vs Hellas Verona

It isn’t easy to get past the Hellas Verona defense. The opposition’s woes increase when they have the lead. This is why Razvan Marin’s strike is of importance. The Romanian received the ball from a Leonardo Pavoletti layoff, continuing his run from midfield and into the area. With a slight dip of shoulders, he made the pressure from Verona fall off. When the 24-year-old finally decided to let loose his shot, Marco Silvestri could not stop the ball from going into the bottom right corner.

M’Bala Nzola vs Lazio

The Serie A minnows were down two goals as the game entered its last third. Something had to give, and the Troyes native took it upon himself to force it. Matteo Ricci released him on the right flank, and the French forward galloped his way into the opposition’s third. Nzola would not be stopped. Even when he bodies piled up after he cut in from the channel. He shifted the ball on his preferred left-foot and let it on its way for Spezia’s only goal of the game.

Lorenzo Insigne vs Crotone

Napoli thrashed Roma 4-0 in the soon to be anointed Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. Despite the change of scenery, a similar fate awaited Crotone at Stadio Ezio Scida. Lorenzo Insigne led the Partenopei’s charge. It began with Piotr Zielinski nutmegging a Crotone defender before playing the ball to the Napoli captain. There were three defenders in Insigne’s way by the time he cut in and curled the ball. They would prove to be hapless bystanders as the ball made into the back of the net despite a diving effort from Alex Cordaz.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic vs Spezia

M’Bala Nzola’s strike against Lazio was one to behold, but it was from the boots of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic that the template was set. Lazio had the lead after Ciro Immobile went on a great run, but it paled in comparison to what would come next. Claudio Terzi brought down the Lazio captain and gave the Serbian the opportunity he needed. Sergej would curl the ball into the left side of the net. An absolute gem of a free-kick will be remembered in a game of lost chances and great goals.
