On Saturday 13 February, all eyes were focused on Juventus Stadium, as the top two teams in the country battled it out to boost their respective title challenges.
Upon entering the fray in the 58th minute, Simone Zaza’s relentless running had already unsettled Napoli’s backline, forcing a couple of openings, but, with only two minutes remaining, the game looked destined to end goalless.
That is until Zaza decided to take matters into his own hands, charging at the Partenopei rearguard at pace and unleashing with power and precision to get the better of Pepe Reina and send more than three quarters of the stadium into a state of utter delirium.
The moment that enabled the Bianconeri to claim top spot in Serie A for the first time this season is the unanimous winner of February’s goal of the month award, receiving 47.22 per cent of the vote on the club’s English website and 49.85 on the Italian one.
As is fitting for a strike of such calibre and class, supporters can relive the magic via this creative masterpiece, produced by Off-Foot Soccer and Love Science Music, rendering Zaza’s goal well and truly a work of art.
