Italian Serie A News, Results, Analysis and Features on Football Soccer

Italy swung by Haiti to play an international friendly for charity and the result was a 2-2 draw against a poor opponent. Enzo Misuraca breaks down the performance and grades some players. It’s the end of the line for an Italian legend, as Massimo Ambrosini will not have his contract renewed with Milan. A casualty of the club’s attempt to get younger, the captain joined the team in 1995 and has played with them ever since, save one season on […]

Match fixing rears its ugly head again, as 33 people and an entire club (AS Bari) were called before a sports trial after being charged with fixing four game. You can read the details in Sports Illustrated. For me, this is personally saddening as a Bari fan that really began following the team during this time period and admired many of the names on this list. So Juventus fans, how do you feel about the Stevan Jovetic rumors? Well, if […]

Eighth placed Internazionale entertain Lazio, who are one place ahead of them, at the San Siro on Wednesday evening. A mere two points separate the two teams as they both desperately seek three points in order to remain in contention for Europa League qualification. A run of poor form in 2013 has seen both teams slip down the Serie A table. Injuries have severely plagued Andrea Stramaccioni’s Inter side which has contributed to their poor form. The Nerazzurri have now […]

After defeat in the Derby d’Italia, the Nerazzurri were back to winning ways putting Sampdoria to the sword. The victory showcased a solid defensive display but even more so Rodrigo Palacio’s performance caught the eye. His brace gave the Inter faithful something to cheer about that had been sadly missing in the last weeks. Palacio said of the victory that “It was important to get back to winning ways. We played well and the result was the most important thing,” […]

Serie A Weekly welcomes writer Richard Hall A torrid week slipped slowly into catastrophic, as first the Nerazzurri were beaten in the Europa League by Tottenham only to have their 105th Birthday celebrations completely ruined by upstarts Bologna at the weekend. Massimo Moratti is suitably unimpressed and Andrea Stramaccioni should be fearful for his job, “I think my work will be judged at the end of the season and not now, then it will be up to the president to make […]

If you’re a die-hard Inter Milan fan like I am, you must have been disappointed by the team’s season last year. It’s not really hard to understand what happened last season. The club made several mistakes in 2011 and unfortunately paid for most of them. First off the team lost its philosophy, its mental strength and its winning mentality from the Mourinho era.  A (record?) total of four managers in less than one year brought different tactical systems and different […]

Only three games remain and the race for third only continues to get tighter. Last weekends result saw Napoli draw Roma, Udinese take 3 points from Lazio and Inter climb back with another win. Currently Napoli, Udinese, Lazio and Inter are all level with 55 points. As I said last week, this race has been completely unpredictable but with only three games, I believe this race is Napoli’s to lose. Napoli are currently sitting in third. They have a goal […]

Saturday 28th April Roma v Napoli The game of the weekend is between two teams of contrasting fortunes. Roma have lost their last two games, a heavy 4-0 loss to Juventus in Turin and a 2-1 home reverse to Fiorentina. Napoli on the other hand, have beaten strugglers Lecce and Novara to move up to fourth.

Two weeks ago I professed that Roma’s chances at third place were over and that it was Lazio’s to lose with Napoli the best odds at finishing third. I was wrong. Following the last two weeks of results, the race is still open with Lazio still in the driving seat, but not comfortably. With 5 games left, the third spot in the Champions League is still up for grabs. The current table has Lazio in third with 55 points. 3 […]

There was some idiotic scenes in the Genoa, as the home side -losing to Siena at the time -were demanded to take of their jerseys by their own ultras. The reasoning; according to this small minority of fans the players were not fit enough to wear the club’s colours. Marco Rossi, Genoa’s captain, ceded to their demands and went about collecting jerseys from his team-mates.  This left Genoa Giandomenico Mesto in tears on the pitch. To their credit, at least […]

What another whirlwind 24 hours in the land of Pazza Inter. In a move that shocked some but was expected by many, Claudio Ranieri was relieved of his managerial duties late Monday evening.  It was a decision that had been a long time coming and could be argued that the ax should have been dropped sooner.  While Ranieri was able to pull the Nerazzurri out of the relegation places in the first half of the season, the same blistering form […]
