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