It had been a long time that the Serie A wasn’t as inter­est­ing as it is now. The vac­uum left by Inter’s down­fall  was filled with a tem­pes­tu­ous AC Milan which is now begin­ning to slow down. Along with AC Milan, Juven­tus have also begun to lose their knack of outscor­ing their oppo­nents, espe­cially notice­able in their 3–0 loss to […]

Serie A is becom­ing more and more inter­est­ing, and with Lazio con­tin­u­ing their win­ning streak, could we see a sur­prise win­ner for the scud­etto? Lazio are cur­rently first in the table with a four point lead on sec­ond placed Inter Milan. While we’re just nine games into the sea­son, maybe Lazio can man­age sec­ond place? […]

AC Milan seemed to have found the right com­bi­na­tion in the Cham­pi­ons League against Aux­erre. A sim­ple 2–0 win with Ibrahi­movic scor­ing both goals sup­pos­edly solved all the prob­lems around the rossoneri. But after the match, Ibrahi­movic decided to insult Milan leg­end Arrigo Sac­chi, and show every­one what a dif­fi­cult char­ac­ter he is to deal […]

The other Sicil­ian club in Serie A last sea­son, the Ele­fanti fin­ished in the bot­tom half of the stand­ings but avoided rel­e­ga­tion by mid-April.  Since their return to Serie A in 2006, this has been a trend for the club — strug­gle at the begin­ning of the year only to secure enough points to avoid relegation […]


Cata­nia has always had to bat­tle rel­e­ga­tion, some years they went down, some they stayed up. When their wonder-coach Wal­ter Zenga left them for Palermo after sav­ing them last sea­son, Cata­nia were left with a large hole to fill. While Atzori tried, his inex­pe­ri­ence led to results that were not good enough, lead­ing to his […]


On the pitch, an offi­cial has the author­ity to add time to a match to make up for injury or ensure that both clubs actu­ally play 45 min­utes in the half.  In the Serie A stand­ings, there is no added time, and for the three clubs at the bot­tom the tick­ing clock is a dooms­day one. […]
