Needless to say the biggest surprise of the week was Juventus’ defeat at the hands of Udinese of 1-0 in Torino to boot. The late goal was scored by Frenchman Thereaux. After losing Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal to NYFC and BayernMunich some questions rose about La Grande Signora. If this game is an indication we are set for a more competitive campaign. For Udinese a great start to the season although dominated for the most part of the game, they were perseverant.
Roma got held to a draw by Hellas Verona of 1-1, with Serbian international Jancovich putting Verona ahead and Italian international Alessandro Florenzi replying for the Romans a few minutes later. The Romans dominated play however could not muster much in terms of shot. Goals we,re hard to come by last season and it was critical. It will interesting indeed to see how Roma fairs this year, will they really challenge Juve?
AC Milan lost 2-0 to a strong Fiorentina team, in a beatiful day in Tuscany. The goals for the Viola we’re scored by Spanish Marcos Alonzo and Slovenian star Josip Llicic. Fiorentina picked up were they left off, starngely enough so did AC. No doubt abot Fiorentinas‘ quality however it remains to be seen if AC have improved, if not heads will roll..quickly
Inter Milan contrary to their cousins got a first win over Atalanta with a score of 1-0, the lone goal was scored by priced newcomer Montenegrin international Stevan Jovetic. A good start for the Neroblue although not very convincing in spite of the win. A lot of signings for Inter however It remains to be seen if Roberto Mancini can actually improve the team.
Lazio started we’re they left off with a 2-1 victory ove newly promoted Bologna while Napoli lost to Sassuolo 2-1 exactely we’re they left off last season..strange indeed.
Sampadoria gave a good indication of their intentions with a 5-2 drubbing of newcomers Carpi
Torino beat newly promoted Frosinone 2-1, By the way Frosinone is a town very close to Rome almost a suburb it will be interesting to watch them.
Palermo beat Genoa 1-0 in a beatiful day in Sicily while Empoli got surpised at home 3-1 by Chievo Verona
