Hello everyone welcome to the Serie A review

juvesassuolo

Juventus took another step towards the title by defeating a tough Sassuolo team 1-0 on a goal from super Frenchman Paul Pogba. Sassuolo are always tough to beat and the game was very close till the final whistle although Juves’ class came through at the end. In spite of not seemingly being as good as last season Juve notwithstanding a disaster in the last part of season Juve will win the Scudetto for a fourth consecutive year. Sassuolo for their part have had a great season so far, and it looks like they will stay up if they keep playing like that

Roma drew for the 11th time this season in a 0-0 draw against Chievo Verona. Roma again dominated possession although could not put one behind the net. Seems like a season to forget for the Romans with so many expectations this season it seems like the chocked under pressure. Only with a miracle can they catch Juve, as a matter of fact they might even lose their familiar 2nd spot if they don’t start winning. Chievo have improved from last season although not by much only time will tell if they stay away from relegation.

Napoli and Inter Milan played to a 2-2 draw that seemed to satisfy both coaches. Argentinian star Gonzalo Higuain and Marek Hamsik scored for the Partenopei while Argentinians Mauro Icardi and Rodriguo Palacio replied for Inter. A tale of two halves, Napoli dominating the first half while Inter came back strong in the second half. Napoli must keep focusing on every game if they want to challenge for the Champions League. Inter for their part have improved since Roberto Mancini took remains to be seen if they can climb closer to Europe.

Fiorentilaziofiorentinana met their nemesis Lazio of Rome in a 4-0 defeat. Argentinian Lucas Biglia who has been great for Lazio this season, Italian international Antonio Candreva and German Miroslav Klose with 2 scored for the Laziale. After a string of good results domestically and in Europe the Tuscans hit a wall in Rome however they are still a good team and I would not be surprised to see them in 3rd place before season’s end. Against all expectations Lazio has climbed to third spot just a couple of points shy of second place, a fantastic season for the Laziali no matter what happens from now till the end of the campaign

AC Milan continue their sea-saw season in 2-2 draw with Hellas Verona. Frenchman Jeremy Menez who has been a sensation for AC scored while the other goal was an own goal courtesy of Greek Tachsidis Panogiatis. Italian Luca Toni and Argentinian Nico Lopez replied for Verona. AC have had a tough season so far, a lot was expected with the arrival of Pippo Inzaghi however things seem to have gotten worse. Hellas for their part are also inconsistent and if they are not careful they might be relegated.

Serie A Review 2014-15 week 25: No master between Juventus and Roma Napoli lose ground

Hello everyone welcome to the Serie A, where the game is played with style

juvevsroma2

Juventus held their ground in Rome in a 1-1 draw. Malain Keita Seydou netted for the Romans while Serie A leading score Carlos Tevez replied for the Bianconeri. A well balanced game while the Romans enjoyed most of the possession of the ball Juve had the better chances to score. An important point for the Bianconeri which sees them inch closer to locking in the title. Roma for their part lost an opportunity to make a statement and to gain 6 points. I think this game is very telling, I don’t think Roma has what it takes to win the Scudetto this season.

napolivstorino2

Napoli got stopped cold in a 1-0 defeat against Torino. Polish sensation Glik Kamil scored for the Granada who are very impressive of late. The Partenopei had a tough task ahead with Torino being practically unbeatable at home nevertheless they had control of the game but could not score and what usually happens happened Torino counter attacked and scored. A great win for Il Toro who are on high right now and are climbing closer to the top spots. Napoli have not been able to be consistent this season, it seems that they are satisfied to fight for third spot.

interfiorentina

Fiorentina defeated Inter Milan 1-0 the goal coming from Egyptian sensation Mohamed Salah. A well-played match both teams we’re pushing forward and it made for a good spectacle. The Viola have steadily improved all season long and if we take all matches in all competitions they have one of the best win loss record in Europe. Inter for their part we’re playing well, before this match they had not tasted defeat in 5 games. The way they are playing I believe they will continue to climb the standings

chievomilan

AC Milan drew 0-0 against Chievo Verona. Milan who continue to struggle enjoyed some good moments although they we’re out-chanced by a determined Chievo. Milan don’t have much time left to save their season, it’s really sad to watch one of the most decorated teams in the world struggle the they are. I don’t think Filippo Inzaghi is the man for the job as manager they should look somewhere else however I think they will give him more time. Chievo got a precious point which will keep them away from the danger zone
