39 Goals In Italian Serie A And Still Boring?

Posted by Scot Munroe Thursday, March 18, 2021

Goals, goals, goals was on the agenda in Serie A this past weekend. Is this great play by the attackers or bad by the defence?? who knows. Serie A has been like this during this season, where some weeks there has been hardly any goals and other weeks where there has been goals bonanza. This has been few and far between and this is why Serie A has been stereotyped as a dull league this season and in season past. But i think over the weekend where in the 10 games played over the 3 days the goal average was at 3.9 per game.


One game in question where there was a lot of goals was a game at the Marassi between Genoa and Cagliari. Where the game finished 5-3 to the home side and there was 5 goals in 6 minutes just before half time. It was 1-0 to the away team before the deluge of goals which meant it was 4-2 to Genoa at half time. Genoa have been one of the open attacking teams this season with the attacking 3-4-3 formation and they have been involved in 3 games this season which have had goals involved. A loss at home to Inter which ended 5-0 to Inter, a 4-3 home defeat to Bologna and Sunday afternoon game 5-3 victory. There was a few games which were open games and they were both top vs bottoms teams where both Roma and Juventus were playing Livorno and Siena and both games ended 3-3.


I think this weekend just papers over the cracks really this season. All the Italians teams have failed in Europe this season (exception Inter) and in 3 years it does now look like Italy will lose a champions league birth to the Bundesliga. The Italian league has been in a demise for a few years now with poor stadium attendances and badly run clubs i.e. Roma, Lazio and Parma have been poorly run.


To compare this weekends goal fest to the likes of the Premier and La Liga is a bit far-fetched at the time being. La Liga in my opinion is the best league at the moment for pure technical reasons and hosts the best player of the world in Lionel Messi and you have seen 2 former Serie A Stars in Kaka and Zlatan Ibrahimovic jumped ship to join Real Madrid and Barcelona, Serie A is light years behind La Liga on and off the pitch. Also to compare to the Premiership is also a bit far fetched as Premier League has come into his own in the last couple of years, but has been hampered fiancially badly. Serie A is now playing 3rd and 4th fiddle behind La Liga and Premiership with the Bundesliga and Ligue 1.


Serie A clubs need to buck up their ideas on and off the pitch to make this league one of the best in the future.
