Hello everyone and welcome to the Series A Review where the beautiful game is played with style


Juventus got an important win by clobbered Hellas Verona 4-0. Goals for La Grande Signora we’re scored by Carlos Tevez with 2, super Frenchman Paul Pogba and new comer Argentinian Roberto Peryera. A big win for the Bianconeri who dominated play in every category, they now have a 5 point cushion on top of the table.  Carlos Tevez continues his torrid pace I think we can safely say after an inconsistent start of his carrier he has found his game in Torino, Maradona’s prediction is coming to fruit it seems. Andrea Pirlo had a super game once again with over 80 passes, when he plays Juve is very hard to beat. Verona who must not get down after this defeat did not play bad however it’s very difficult to play against Juve when they are playing well. With almost half the season left anything can still happen 5 points can be lost in 2 games.


Roma stumbled in Palermo in a 1-1 draw. Italian Mattia Destro got the goal for the Romans while Argentinian Paulo Dybala got the goal for the Sicilians. A hard fought game Palermo are very impressive at home although Roma played their game to almost perfection once again Bosnian Miralem Pjanic controlled midfield and the ball distributing 86 passes in total. In spite of their losing ground to Juve the Romans can be proud of their performance it’s very promising for the rest of the campaign. Palermo for their part that proved once again that it is very difficult to get points in Sicily.


Napoli got a much needed 3 points by defeating Lazio in Rome 1-0 on a very opportunist goal from Argentinian Gonzalo Higuain. A strange game to say the least Napoli who are rarely dispossessed got a lesson in control of the ball from a very well organized Lazio team yet won the game. A big win for the Partenopei who climb back in 3rd place in a two way tie with Sampadoria. I must note the play of Argentinian Lucas Biglia who continues his impressive play for Lazio with over 80 passes completed he played a big part in the game. Lazio in spite of the loss can take a lot of positives from this game they outplayed one of the better passing team in Europe they must remained focused and look up.


AC Milan lost a bitter game at home 1-0 to Atalanta on a goal from Argentinian Germain Denis. A tough loss for the Rossoneri who completely dominated play and had lots of chances although once again their defensive play let them down. Dutch star Nigel De Jong had a very good game at midfield for the Rossoneri although AC continue to struggle a sew saw season at best. By their standard they are doing poor something is not the same at Milan they must find a new lead in my view someone who bleeds red and black. Maldini where are you? Atalanta got an unexpected 3 points and can take pride in this win that can maybe help them regain some of last season form.


Fiorentina got a big away win defeating Chievo Verona 2-1. Senegalese star Babacar M’Baye Gueye with a late winner (94th minute) and Argentinian Gonzalo Rodrigues got the goals for the Viola. Frenchman Sergio Pellesier replied for Chievo. A big win for Fiorentina who in my view have one of the best passing teams in Europe, 3 big points that sees them inch closer to 3rd place, Spanish Borja Valero had a big game for the Viola as did Babacar. Chievo deserved better they fought like mad men although the Tuscans we’re just too strong in the end.
