Roma handed Juventus their second consecutive defeat with a 2-1 win. Bosnian internationals Miralem Pjanic and Edin Dzeko got the goals for the Romans while Argentinial newcomer Paulo Dybala replied for the Bianconeri. Roma dminated play for the most part although Juve fought back. Roma just showed what they can do while Juve dont seem as strong, the way Roma dominated was telling. Well only time will tell.

intercarpi

Inter Milan beat a stubborn Carpi team 2-1, the goals for the Neroblue came from super Montenegran international Stevan Jovetivic with both goals. The reply for Carpi came from Italian Antonio De Gaudio. Two wins in row for Roberto Mancini lets hope it continues he is a good coach. Carpi are newcomers and will have to play better at home to keep them from falling back down

????????????????????????????????????

Ac Milan got an important victory of 2-1 over Empoli. The goals for the Rossoneri came from newcomers Brazilian Luiz Adriano and Colombian Carlos Bacca while Italian Riccardo Saponara replied for Empoli. A very close and tough game Empoli contrlled the play while AC where very opportunistic. After a first loss a much needed win for the fragile Milan team, Empoli is still looking for their first points of the season in spite of playing well.

Fiorentina got beat by a very strong Torino team in a score of 3-1. Torinos’ goals came from Italians Emiliano Moretti, Fabio Quagliarella and Daniele Baselli the reply for the Tuscans came from Spanish Marcos Alonso.
Judging from this game Torino will be a force to reckon with this season they exposed Fiorentina’s defence over and over. It will be interesting to watch them. Fiorentina still have a good team they are usually slow starters.

Lazio got a drubbing 4-0 at the hands of surprising Chievo Verona. the goals we’re scored by Riccardo Meggiorini, Alberto Paloschi with two and Valter Birsa with the other one. Chievo is on fire with two lopsided wins in a row against strong teams. While Lazio who are playing in the Champions have two losses in a row. They seem to be going in different directions for sure.

Hello everyone and welcome back to a new edition of the weekly Serie A Review

juvevsudine3

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?

milanwin

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

intervsataInter 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.

napolivssassuolo

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.

carpi2

Sampadoria gave a good indication of their intentions with a 5-2 drubbing of newcomers Carpi

frosinone

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

Serie A Review 2014-15 week 30: Juventus surprised in Parma, Lazio overtake Roma in second place while Napoli tames a strong Fiorentina team.

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

????????????????

Juventus we’re finally defeated to lowly Parma no less with a score of 1-0. The only goal of the affair was scored by Brazilian Jose Mauri. Juve who seem to be like an unstoppable train hit a roadblock in Tuscany. Although they played well enough to win a lot of credit goes to the Tuscan team, whom in trying to put forth a last ditch attempt to avoid relegation played a great game. However notwithstanding a disaster in my view Juve will win their fourth consecutive title. We will see in the Champions League I guess if this more of a reflection on the rest of the league or the Juve team. Nevertheless I must say its uncanny how Juventus remain hungry year after year. I wish I knew their secret I would bottle it and sell it.

laziovsempoli2

Lazio trumped Empoli 4-0 to overtake Roma in second place. Italians Stefano Mauri and super Antonio Candreva, Brazilian Felipe Anderson and German legend Miroslav Klose all scored for the Laziali. Lazio is on a surge overtaking their city rivals and second place. A great story indeed a lot of credit goes to the coaching staff as well as the players. They are fun to watch and also seem to strike a perfect balance with possession and attack not unlike Bayern Munich. They will be hard to ignore for that Champions League automatic spot if they continue to play this way. Although Empoli held their own possession wise they we’re no match when it came to attacking effectiveness nevertheless they must remain positive and focus on their main objective.

Torino Fc - Roma

Roma we’re held to a 1-1 draw in Torino against a very strong Torino team. Argentinian Maxi Lopez scored for Granata while Italian Alessandro Florenzi replied for the Romans. A very evenly matched game possession was split and so we’re the chances, Torino is confirming their seasons form and surging at the right moment. They will be looking a Europa spot for sure. Roma has slipped to third place and the way they are playing combined with the surges from the teams chasing them they might fall even further. Something is just not right this season in the Eternal City, my feeling is that Rudy Garcia will be let go after this season.

napolivsfiorentina4

Napoli showed what they are capable of with a trouncing of 3-0 against a very strong Fiorentina team. The goals for the Partenopei we’re scored by Belgian sensation Dries Mertens, Croatian international Marek Hamsik and Spanish sensation Jose Callejon. A very important win for Napoli that not only delivers a blow to their direct competitor but also might restore some needed confidence to a very good team. The Partenopei in my view must remain focus and consistent to have any chance for a Champions league spot. Fiorentina for their part must not lose confidence after this game, the same things apply to them if they want any chance for the Champions League.

milanvssampa2intervsverona2

Both Milan teams who are traditionally powerhouses are struggling with consistency this season, nevertheless Inter Milan got a much needed 3-0 win against a struggling Hellas Verona team, while AC Milan had to settle for a 1-1 draw against a very strong Sampadoria team.

In Other Scores

Genoa continue their impressive campaign by defeating Cagliari 2-0. I believe a Europa League spot is within reach for the Genovese

Palermo surprised Udinese in Udine 3-1 a score that reflects the improved play from the Sicilians and the inconsistency from Udinese

Atalanta got a much needed win of 2-1 against an improved Sassuolo team

Lastly Chievo also got some important points by defeating Cesena 1-0

There you have it folks another edition of the Serie A Review with 8 games remaining the race is hitting a peak..stay tuned

Serie A Review 2014-15 29th week: Juventus win again Roma kept pace by defeating Napoli while Fiorentina and Lazio getting close

Hi everyone to the Serie A Review where the beautiful game is played with style!

juvevsempoli2

Juventus defeated Empoli 2-0 and continue their dominance of the league. The goals for La Grande Signora we’re scored by none other than Carlos Tevez who continues his great form this season and another Argentinian who is also doing great since getting a chance to play Roberto Pereyra. Although Empoli played well Juve was just a little too much too handle for the defence on this day. Carlos Tevez had a great game not only scoring but also distributing, I can’t see how Juve can lose the title, they just keep winning at a torrid pace,  bodes well for the Champions League. Empoli have a good season so far, after coming up from Serie B they showed that they can play with best on many occasions including in this game, in spite of the loss.

romavsnapoli3

Roma defeated Napoli 1-0 on a goal from super Slovenian Milan Pjanic. A big win for the Romans that not only helped them keep pace with Juve but also kept surging city rivals Lazio from surpassing them. A beautiful game from Roma although Napoli also played well, Pjanic is just fantastic controlling midfield like a master. An important win for the Romans that will sure give them confidence to attack more I hope. Napoli must regroup having slipped to 6th spot after a string of bad results. Something is just not right for the Partenopei at the moment, time will tell if Rafa Benitez will survive the season.

intervsparma

Fiorentina defeated Sampadoria 2-0 on goals from Italian Alessandro Diamanti who has been playing well since coming back from playing in the China Super League and super Egyptian Mohamed Salah who continues to terrorize the keepers since joining the team from Chelsea. A great win for the Viola that confirms their super team status and also take 4th place one point behind Lazio and two points in front of Sampadoria and Napoli. Sampa must not let this defeat affect their form they are having a great season and must not let up

milanvspalermo2

AC Milan defeated Palermo 2-1 in doing so kept their hopes alive for a place in Europe. The goals for the Rossoneri we’re scored by Italian international Alessandro Cerci and super Frenchman Jeremy Menez while super Argentinian Paulo Dybala replied for the Sicilians. A good game for the Rossoneri historically very difficult to win in Sicily, a sign of things to come?  Palermo for their part are almost assured a spot for next season, the goal they had set after coming back from Serie B and must not let this defeat affect their focus.

intervsparma3

Inter Milan and lowly Parma played to 1-1 draw, a fitting result for two teams who are far from their glory days. Colombian Fredy Guarin who continues his great form got the goal for Neroblue while Albanian Lila Andi replied for the Parmiggiani. A good game for Inter in spite of the result although they won’t climb very high if they don’t find a way to some wins together. The Parmiggiani are destined to drop and it’s very sad, one of the original 7 sisters of Italian soccer who dropped from grace only time will tell if they can somehow come back from this disastrous season.

Serie A Review 2014-15 week 26: Juventus win in Sicily, Roma and Napoli lose more ground.

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

romachievo

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.

napoliinter3

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

milanveronamilanoverona2

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.
