1. Juven­tus in sec­ond after 2–1 win over Lazio A fan­tas­tic match between two sides which bat­tled for the win. Juven­tus took the lead in the first min­utes with Chiellini pow­er­ing his way through a weak Lazio defence on a cor­ner, head­ing in a tem­po­rary lead for the bian­coneri. But Lazio fought back, and about fifteen […]

The Serie A con­tin­ues with much of the same; Ben­itez loses his sec­ond game in a row, Kra­sic cuts through defend­ers like a hot knife through but­ter, and Ibrahi­movic pro­vides a fan­tas­tic goal for us all to enjoy. This slate of Serie A games saw many play­ers play bril­liantly, like Menez for Roma, Kra­sic for […]

In this pre­view of the upcom­ing Serie A matches, I’ll be look­ing at the inter­est­ing matches, and the two teams which recently got new coaches, Genoa and Cagliari.

With the inter­na­tional break over, we can now focus back to this inter­est­ing title race in the works called Serie A.

Like most soc­cer fans, I am a soc­cer league polyg­a­mist.  Because I live less than 20 min­utes from an MLS club, I root for and fol­low Major League Soc­cer in the U.S.  How­ever, I am also a pas­sion­ate Arse­nal fan who lives and dies in every match they play through­out the year.  And of course, […]

The sec­ond match­day of Serie A was excit­ing, that’s pretty much the only way to describe it. It was full of upsets, goals, and action. At the top of the table you have Chievo in first place with six points, at the bot­tom you have Udi­nese last with zero points, and Roma sec­ond last with […]
