SERIE A REVIEW 2015-16 WEEK 2: Roma hand Juventus theirsecond loss in as many matches while both AC and Inter Milan win.


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


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.


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.
In other Scores
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.
Napoli had to settle for a 2-2 draw with Sampadoria while Genoa defeated Hellas Verona 2-0. Sassuolo continue to impress with a 1-0 road win against Bologna while Palermo beat Udinese 1-0. Finally Atalanta got their first win of 1-0 over newly promoted Frosinone.

(Europa League second leg 26-02-2015) The Italians send five teams to the round of 16

Hi everyone welcome

The Italians send no less then five teams to the round of 16, great news for the league and telling on the progress made by some teams



Torino became the first Italian club to win at San Mamés in Bilbao Spain defeating Athletico Bilbao 3-2. With their first ever win in Spain Il Toro booked their place in the round of 16 thanks to 5-4 aggregate victory. Italians Fabio Quagliarella, Matteo Darmian and Argentinian Maxi Lopez got the goals for the visitors while Spanish Andoni Iraola and Óscar de Marcos replied for Bilbao. A dramatic and record win for Il Toro that confirms their excellent form.



Napoli booked their third consecutive trip to round of 16 with 1-0 win over Trabzonspor of Turkey thanks to a goal from Dutchman Jonathan De Guzmán. The Partenopei secured their spot with a 5-0 aggregate win. Although coach Rafa Benitez made five changes in the lineup for Napoli the result was never in doubt.


Roma got their first win on the road in all European competitions with a knockout of Feyenoord Rotterdam. Serbian Adem Ljajić and Ivorian Gervinho scored for the Romans while Dutch player Elvis Manu replied for the hosts. The match was halted due to racist actions of some of the fans towards Gervinho and the general aggressive manner of the Rotterdam fans. In spite of the Romans conquered

fiorevstt.fiorevstt2Fiorentina Knocked out Tottenham with a solid 2-0 win and a 3-1 final aggregate. German Mario Gomez and newcomer Egyptian Mohamed Salah got the goals for the hosts. The Viola continue to impress in Europe coach Vincenzo Montella is brilliant in my view, no doubt they will be one of the finalists.


intervsceltic2Inter Milan defeated Celtic 1-0 and in so doing progressed to the final 16 thanks to a 4-3 aggregate score. Colombian Freddy Guarin who continues his good form scored for the visitors. Inter seem to have found a good moment at the right time bodes well for the millions of fans around the world.

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


Juventus got a step close to their 4th consecutive title by defeating Atalanta 2-1. Ageless Andrea Pirlo and Spanish Fernando Llorente scored for La Grande Signora while Italian Giulio Migliacci replied for the Bergamasci. A good performance by Juve and they could have had more goals notwithstanding a few good save from the Atalanta keeper. Pirlo had a fantastic game once again with over 80 passes completed. With Roma failing to keep pace only a small miracle can keep Juve from winning another Scudetto. The Bergamasci for their part must find a way to accumulate points or they will be in danger of going down.


Roma drew again this time 1-1 against struggling Hellas Verona. The ever young Francesco Totti scored for the Romans while Serbian Jankovic Bosko scored for the Veronese. Roma completely dominated the game and could have had at least four goals, Bosnian superstar Miralem Pjanic had a fantastic game as did Malian Keita Seydou. Tough times for Roma who have a total of 9 draws out of 24 games this season, they will never catch Juve at this rate. Hellas is also in a rough time after a couple of good seasons this one seems more difficult they must improve to avoid relegation


Napoli inched closer to the Romans and the automatic Champion League spot with a 2-0 win over much improved Sassuolo. Slovak sensation Marek Hamsik and super sub Colombian Duvan Zapata who always seems to score when he is in the lineup got the Partenopei on the scoreboard. Important win for the Partenopei which sees them just two points behind Roma and the second spot. A very important spot as it guarantees a Champion League spot. Sassuolo are enjoying a good season and are 8 points clear of relegation at the moment. They must not let this defat demoralize them.


Fiorentina had to settle with a 1-1 draw against a strong Torino team. Egyptian Mohamed Salah scored for the Tuscans while Italian Giuseppe Vives replied for Il Toro. A very tough match indeed both teams we’re going for the win and it gave a great spectacle. The Viola are enjoying a great moment and are close to a Champion League spot, they must not let up. Coach Vincenzo Montella is doing a good job in Tuscany.Torino for their part are enjoying a good season in spite of losing both their outstanding strikers from last season Alessandro Cerci and Ciro Immobile.


Inter Milan are climbing towards the top of the standings with a 2-1 win over Cagliari. Argentinian Mauro Icardi and Croatian Phenom Mateo Kovacic scored for Inter while Inter keeper Argentinian Carrizo Juan Pablo had an own goal which made the score closer than the match indicated. A good moment for Inter and their fans with a little luck they just might reach Europe. The Sardinians for their part are struggling at the moment, they must find a way to get points if they don’t want to be relegated

In other scores


AC Milan got an important win of 2-0 over Cesena which keeps them in the hunt for Europe

Lazio climbed to fourth spot with a 2-1 win over much improved Palermo

Empoli continue to impress with a 3-0 win over Chievo Verona

Serie A Review 2014-15 week 22: Juventus tames AC Milan Roma finally get a win

images (7)

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


Juventus continue their march towards the Scudetto with a 3-1 win over their eternal rivals AC Milan. Unstoppable Carlos Tevez, Spanish Alvaro Morata and Italian Leonardo Bonucci scored for the Bianconeri while Luca Antonelli replied for the Rossoneri. Although possession was somewhat split Juve we’re rarely in danger, their dominance at midfield was evident once again. Right now they look like an unstoppable train. AC on the other hand lost an opportunity to get closer to a European spot. The way they are playing I doubt it, after sacking Clarence Seedorf the hope was to improve on last year however seems the opposite has happened, they are stuck in the middle of the standings with no hope in sight


Roma finally got a win after a string of draws, a victory of 2-1 over Cagliari. Serbian Adem Ljajic and Argentinian Leandro Paredes got the goals for Giallorossi while Belgian newcomer Paul-Jose M’Poku replied for the Sardinians. A well-played road game for the Romans who controlled possession and where in total command of the game. Hopefully this game will turn the fortunes around for Roma who must remain focused if they want any chance of catching Juventus. Cagliari for their part we’re coming off a good stretch and must not let this defeat bring them down if they want to remain in Serie A.


Napoli continue their assault on 2nd spot with a decisive 3-1 win over Udinese. Newcomer Manolo Gabbiadini, Belgian sensation Dries Mertens and an own goal by Frenchman Cyril Theroux who in fact also got the goal for his team. Napoli are enjoying a good moment right now and with a little help could find themselves in 2nd spot before the season’s end. Udinese for their part are continuing their sea-saw season, they must improve if they want to progress in the standings, in my view.


Fiorentina climbed to 4th spot with a tough win of 3-2 over Atalanta. Argentinian Jose Maria Basanta and Italians Alesandro Diamanti and Manuel Pasqual scored for the Tuscans. Diamanti who is recently back from China had an instant impact on the team bodes well for the Viola. Ghanaian Boakye Richmond Yiadom and Italian Davide Zappacosta replied for the Bergamasci. An important win for Fiorentina which sees them in 4th place right behind Napoli. In my view with Juve, Roma, Napoli and Fiorentina being 1,2,3,4 in the standings is probably a prelude to the final standings.


Inter Milan snapped their losing streak with a 3-0 trumping of Palermo. Argentinian Mauro Icardi with 2 and Colombian Freddy Guarin got the goals for the Neroblue. Guarin had a fantastic game as did Icardi. After a string of bad results a much needed win for the Neroblue. They have not been able to string together any kind of positive results at best a sea-saw season for the Interisti. Roberto Mancini is a great coach however he will need more time to turn the team around. Palermo for their part are playing well and in spite of the loss are surpassing every expectation this season.



In other results

Torino continue their impressive drive with 3-1 drubbing of Hellas Verona

Genoa continue their impressive form with 1-0 win over Lazio in Rome

Sampadoria and Sassuolo who are both playing beyond expectation this season settled for a 1-1

                                                                                                  Lastly Chievo Verona defeated Seir B bound Parma 1-0
