Inter Out of Luck with Substitutes


Inter’s substitutes have scored just one Serie A goal off the bench this season, say Football Italia.

SPAL, whose substitutes have yet to score during a league match in 2019-20, are the only team to have fared worse.

Alessandro Bastoni, who replaced Diego Godin at Lecce in January, scored the only substitute goal for Inter, as he netted the equaliser in a 1-1 draw.

Nevertheless, on that basis, Antonio Conte looks well-placed to improve once the season resumes on June 20, with Christian Eriksen, Stefano Sensi and Alexis Sanchez all fitting in again.

By contrast, Atalanta is leading the way on 14 goals at the other end of the spectrum. Atalanta striker Luis Muriel scored off the bench half of his side goals (7), making him the ultimate super-sub in Serie A.

They are five goals clear of Verona in second place.

Parma is third in line. Andreas Cornelius ranks second in the race for the substitute with the highest score-he has netted five of Parma’s eight goals.

He is followed by Felipe Caicedo, who is in charge of four of Lazio’s eight off-bench strikes. Incidentally, just like their players, Lazio, in fourth position, immediately follow Parma.

Juventus, overall table-toppers, rank only fifth in substitution with eight goals.


Here is a descending list of clubs with the net number of goals scored by substitutes in Serie A this season:
