Stats from his entire Inter career (5 seasons 2003-2008).

Serie A

vs Juve
4 goals in 3.6 games = 1.12 goals/game avg.

vs Milan
3 goals in 2.56 games = 1.17 goals/game avg.

Bonus fact:
Coppa Italia vs Juve
3 goals in 2 games = 1.5 goals/game avg.



Note: His stats vs Roma are not as good. Only 4 goals in 6.9 games in total, including Coppa Italia.

I hope this boost thread wont jinx the Jule mans record vs Serie As two worst diseases.

His brace against Juve in 03-04 was the most memorable as far as I'm concerned. We hadn't beaten Juve in Turin for a decade, we had to field Gamarra and Adani in defence and moreover that match was only a few days after the 5-1 drubbing at home to Arsenal. Probably Almeyda's best match in an Inter shirt, and his good games here were rare.

Then there's the equalizer against Milan 11 seconds after he came off the bench in the 2-1 win in the 2nd derby of 06/07. That was special as well, though most of the credit should go to Dida. :D

Nice post, his goal in this seasons first derby with his left foot surrounded by 3 or 4 Milan players is just beautiful.

But absolutely nothing beats his goal away to Roma in Serie A this season making the game score 1-3. It´s one of the best 5 goals which have ever been scored in football. Only Maradonas goal in 86 and such can be compared to this piece of art:

That goal is simply the most perfectly executed goals of all times. What I love about him in general is that he looks just like your average mid-table team forward which came to Inter when he was around 29 years, and developing into this - still being solid quality when he´s soon 34 years old.

What makes the goal extra special in my opinion is the background music.
