Top 5 Goals of Serie A Round 25: Zappacosta’s Brilliance on Show 

In Serie A Round 25, Milan succumbed to a draw while Inter continued their rampant march. There are six-points that separate the two crosstown rivals at the top of the Serie A table. With Juventus managing results against their rivals, the Old Lady can leapfrog the Rossoneri.

The two fixtures that could not be missed involved top-four hopefuls. Sassuolo and Napoli played a 3-3 draw at the Mapei Stadium. Meanwhile, there was no stopping the Atalanta Express as Gasperini’s men made little note of Crotone in a 5-1 thrashing.

Despite the Lazio vs. Torino game being postponed, there were 29 goals scored in the midweek fixtures of Italian top-flight football. Here is our pick of the Top 5 goals from Serie A Round 25.

Leonardo Spinazzola vs. Fiorentina

The first half could not separate Roma and Fiorentina but before the hour mark, the scorers had been called into action twice. It was Leonardo Spinazzola who continued his fine goal contribution run, getting on the scoreboard this time around. The Italy international latched on to a pass from Gianluca Mancini, volleying it spectacularly into the back of the net.

Alexis Sanchez vs. Parma

Another round of Serie A matches and another victory for Inter. As the Nerazzurri put distance between themselves and the chasing pack, the Romelu Lukaku solo run was on show again. The Belgian ran forward, did not get on the scoreboard, and exhibited his unselfish side of the game. After attracting the interest of Parma defenders, he released Alexis Sanchez into space, and the Chilean expertly took his chance to double Inter’s lead.

Federico Chiesa vs. Spezia

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 20th Serie A goal of the 2020-21 campaign, which was also his 600th league outing. But Federico Chiesa managed to steal the headlines against Spezia. After Rodrigo Bentancur had run circles around the Spezia defense, Chiesa took his shot. The former Fiorentina man could not get past Ivan Provedel in first attempt and his second while tumbling down had no answer from the shot-stopper.

Piotr Zielinski vs. Sassuolo

Domenico Berardi sent an enticing free-kick on goal which was turned in by Nikola Maksimovic. Sassuolo had the lead but they would be brought back on level terms by Piotr Zielinski’s magical left foot. Four Napoli players interchanged passes before the Polish attacker received the ball. Zielinski switched to his left foot and targeted the bottom left corner of Andrea Consigli’s goal to equalize.

Davide Zappacosta vs. Sampdoria

Genoa and Sampdoria canceled out each other on the night as their respective winless runs continued. It was Davide Zappacosta who stole the show with his magnificent solo run in the second half. The Chelsea loanee was deployed in an advanced role and proved Davide Ballardini right. He received a lofted pass from Kevin Strootman before taking on the Sampdoria gatekeeper while dribbling at pace. He evaded one defender and then another before trying out his luck. Emil Audero saw a flash past his eyes and then was told to get the ball out of his net.
