Inter has the worst luck with its substitutes, ranking low in that respect, only followed by SPAL’s position as last in this respect, say Football Italia.
The club’s substitutes have scored just one Serie A goal off the bench this season. Alessandro Bastoni, who replaced Diego Godin at Lecce in January, scored that goal and netted the equaliser in a 1-1 draw.
SPAL, whose substitutes have yet to score during a league match in 2019-20, are the only team to have fared worse.
By contrast, Atalanta is leading the way on 14 goals at the higher end of the spectrum. Atalanta is five points clear of Verona in second place.
Atalanta striker Luis Muriel scored off the bench half of his side goals (7), making him the ultimate super-sub in Serie A.
Andreas Cornelius ranks second with five of Parma’s eight goals (making them third), followed by Felipe Caicedo who is in charge of four of Lazio’s eight off-bench strikes, which lands them in fourth place.
Juventus, table-toppers otherwise, rank fifth with their substitute game.
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.
Total team goals scored by substitutes in Serie A this season, with clubs ranking from best to worst are:
