This has been a fantastic season in Serie A where Juventus ended the season unbeaten winning their twenty eighth Scudetto. AC Milan and Udinese will be playing in the Champions League next season while Napoli, Lazio and Inter will be in the Europa. Novara, Cesena and Lecce were sadly relegated from Serie A to Serie B. There have been some magnificent goals in Serie A
Here are the top ten goals from the 2011/2012 Season.

A brilliant individual goal, Ibarbo chased an aimless ball and won it before the defender, ghosted past two more Catania players included the keeper to slot home.

A Football fan for around 18 years since the age of 6 years old. My first love is Swindon town now managed by the mad man that is Paolo Di Canio. I have been a fan of Italian football for around 10-15 years now since the Channel four days back in the Uk with James Richardson. I am a Roma fan as well and i have been following the club since 2003 with the attack minded football with Totti and Cassano.
