Serie A highlights: Napoli's Mertens scores mind-boggling goal from near sideline
This was some hit from the brilliant Belgian
Napoli star Dries Mertens is a goal-scoring machine. The Belgian is not known as a true striker but scored 34 goals last season and is on pace for about 40 goals this season. He can do it in a variety of ways, but his brilliant form usually comes from using his speed and quickness to get separation and fire on frame. But the former PSV man can produce some beauties from range, just like he did on Wednesday in Napoli's 3-1 win over Lazio.
Mertens scored from the left side of the box after the goalkeeper came out to grab the ball, finishing from a really tricky angle. Here's that magical goal:
That is something. He puts the right amount of loft on it, and the accuracy was as good as it gets. A golazo for Mertens, but it seems like this guy just produces fine strikes week in and week out.
