Top 5 Serie A Goals Of Week 26
Top 5 Goals Of Week 26 of Serie A
Just like last week, Serie A has closed another chapter with several impressive goals. In the week that precedes the important friendly game of the Nazionale against Spain, the players' motivations to perform well were at their highest, given their continuous aspirations to convince the boss Cesare Prandelli for a call-up in Azzurro.
The weekend as a whole was not rich with goals in terms of quantity. As a matter of fact, there were a total of 16, 10 less than the previous weekend. Even more, besides the two 0-0 draws in Roma-Inter and Bologna-Verona, one team, Cagliari, was able to score three goals in its victory against Udinese. For the rest, there were all close games with very few goals.
In addition, as far as the standings are concerned, Juventus has practically sealed the deal in the fight for the Scudetto as it has increased its advantage from Roma by 11 points thanks to a convincing victory 2-0 against AC Milan at the Giuseppe Meazza stadium in San Siro.
The Giallorossi, however, despite having tied against the Nerazzurri, were able to maintain their six-point advantage over Napoli as the Partenopei were not able to beat Livorno in their visit to Tuscany. Moreover, having Fiorentina below in the standings by seven points, the race for the Champions League qualification spots should not be a major struggle for both Roma and Napoli.
What has become very interesting is the race for the Europa League, given that the Viola and Inter will have to be competing against the two major revelations of the year, Parma and Verona.
Here are the top five goals of the week. Enjoy.
5. Marco Parolo vs. Sassuolo
Without a doubt, Marco Parolo is one of the most relevant revelations of the year. Not in vain, Italy's manager Cesare Prandelli has praised him again with a very-well deserved call-up for the friendly against Spain.
His goal, which opened the score sheet against Sassuolo, is a simple demonstration of his great qualities when making the vertical runs just like the world's best midfielders.
4. Fernando Llorente vs. AC Milan
Very much like goal scored in PlayStation, Fernando Llorente concluded, with a very simple touch, what can be considered an authentic example of how soccer should be played as a team. Enjoy the great combination between the Bianconeri to open the score sheet against a very unfortunate Milan.
3. Manolo Gabbiadini vs. Torino
The Sampdoria starlet has already stopped being a revelation and instead is an authentic reality of Serie A. On Sunday, he put the ball into the net with another great shot from a free kick.
Without a doubt, he already is one of the best long-distance shooters in the league. The future is all his.
2. Carlos Tevez vs. AC Milan
Every week, the Argentine forward confirms himself as the league's strongest player. On Sunday, Carlos Tevez destroyed any Milan hope by sealing the game with a beautiful long-distance shot during the second half.
Thanks to this goal, he is now the league's only top scorer to the misfortune of Giuseppe Rossi, who will not be able to compete for it due to his injury.
1. Lorik Cana vs. Fiorentina
Just like last week, the best goal of the week comes from a Lazio defender. This time, instead of Stefan Radu, the goal most beautiful goal came from Lorik Cana.
With an unexpected and brilliant bicycle kick, the Albanian gave the surprise of the day as the Biancocelesti were able to beat Fiorentina at the Artemio Franchi three days after the pathetic Europa League elimination.
