Higuain’s smart finish makes the top five featured goals.
In another action-packed round of Serie A fixtures, Alessandro Diamanti’s free-kick for Bologna leads the way in our top 5 goals of the weekend.
1] Alessandro Diamanti – Bologna vs Udinese
The Italian international is known for his ability to curl in wonderful free-kicks, and he didn’t disappoint on Sunday as his strike gave his side the lead against Udinese.
However, Antonio Di Natale spoiled the party as he scored on his 300th Serie A appearance to ensure the two sides came away with a point each.
2] Mauro Icardi – Inter Milan vs Juventus
The young Argentinian striker is a bright prospect for Inter, and it always helps his popularity with the club’s supporters by scoring against bitter rivals Juventus.
Ricky Alvarez played a huge role in the build-up, but Icardi’s finish against Gianluigi Buffon was assured as he lashed the ball home to give the Nerazzurri the lead..
3] Gonzalo Higuain – Napoli vs Atalanta
Higuain scored his first competitive goal at the San Paolo on Saturday night, sparking frenetic scenes in the stands.
With the responsibility of scoring goals primarily on his shoulders this season, he hasn’t disappointed thus far.
4] Jose Callejon – Napoli vs Atalanta
Similarly to his team-mate, Callejon has begun life in Naples well and continues to score goals for Rafa Benitez.
With some excellent build-up play, the Spaniard’s sweetly controlled finish ensured the Partenopei are top of the table with a 100 per cent record.
5] Alessio Cerci – Torino vs AC Milan
With the Rossoneri pushing forward for an equaliser, Cerci took full advantage of their labouring back-line and slotted home expertly over Christian Abbiati.
Unfortunately for the Italian international, his side were unable to hold on to their two goal advantage, with the visitors sealing a draw with a 95th minute Mario Balotelli penalty.
