Top 5 Goals from Serie A Round 13: Lykos’ Unstoppable Free-Kick

It was just another week in Serie A and another round of goals. But, this time around, the goals led to results rather than points being shared equally.

Cristiano Ronaldo was flying again, Josip Ilicic was tip-toeing around defenders, and Fabio Quagliarella was finding space in the opposition third. The entertainment did not stop here as Milan scored the fastest goal in Serie A history, and it was responded in quality by a Domenico Berardi free-kick.

The week saw Napoli trounced by Ciro Immobile and Lazio, but there were celebrations in the Insigne household as the young Roberto scored in Benevento’s win. Meanwhile, in Bergamo, Edin Dzeko, Luis Muriel, Duvan Zapata, Josip Ilicic, and Robin Gosens get on the scoreboard. The highlights reel was as interesting as the subtler tones of the match.

With 29 goals scored in Serie A Round 13, here are our top-five goal picks.

Rafael Leao vs. Sassuolo

Milan squandered their lead in Serie A and allowed Inter to move within a point of them. The Rossoneri were in no mood to allow their crosstown rivals gaining upon them. Sassuolo were their unfortunate victims, succumbing to the fastest goal in Serie A history. Milan were on the offensive from the get-go, and Rafael Leao put the finishing touches to their attacking play. No Zlatan, no Rebic, no worries, Leao to the rescue.

Cristiano Ronaldo vs. Parma

Juventus’ climb in Serie A leaderboard continued with a 0-4 dismantling of Parma. Cristiano Ronaldo deservedly took the headlines with another sublime performance that included a brace of the highest standards. It was his first of the night that is worthy of our mention. Alvaro Morata sent in an inch-perfect cross, to which the Portuguese made his jump, floated in the air in his trademark fashion and sent the ball past Luigi Sepe.

Domenico Berardi vs. Milan

Sassuolo trailed the Rossoneri for the duration of the game after conceding the fastest goal in Serie A history. Alexis Saelemaekers doubled their misery in the 26th minute. However, they managed to peg one back through Domenico Berardi. The Italy international getting past Gianluigi Donnarumma from a free-kick. The Neroverdi will not be pleased with the 1-2 result, as they slipped out of automatic Europa League qualification slot.

Achraf Hakimi vs. Spezia

Inter registered their sixth successive Serie A win to maintain pressure on Milan. The Nerazzurri secured the 2-1 result against Spezia with the combination play that Antonio Conte is famous for. Romelu Lukaku chested down the ball for the rushing Lautaro Martinez, who released Achraf Hakimi on the left flank. The Morocco international went on a dizzying fast solo run, before sending a fierce shot that crashed the back of the net to get the scoring proceedings underway.

Charalampos Lykogiannis vs. Udinese

After seven draws in Round 12, there were three stalemates this time around. Half an hour separated the scoring efforts from Cagliari and Udinese. However, it was the free-kick from Charalampos Lykogiannis that had a ring of inevitability and penchant to be remembered. The versatile Greek stepped up to try his luck and was rewarded for form and accuracy. The ball went into the top left corner, and there was never any danger of it being stopped despite Juan Musso’s diving effort.
