Luca Toni’s strike just before half time allowed Fiorentina to keep up their slim hopes of a Champions League spot this season, but also condemned his former side Palermo, to relegation. The veteran Italian, keen to impress on a rare start, came close in the opening stages as a Juan Cuadrado cross was pushed away from him. However the Sicilian side had chances of their own before the opening goal, with Ezequiel Munoz and Jasmin Kurtic both missing good opportunities. […]

We are heading into my favourite part of the season, the crowning of the Scudetto winner. In Italian Serie A four games remain from season end but odds are leaders Juventus should wrap up the title when they meet relegation candidates Palermo come Sunday. At top of the table Juventus need but a one point from the encounter to secure the back to back Scudetti under coach Antonio Conte. And now the real race begins amongst the bottom end of […]

This weekend the two Sicilian sides face off against the two Rome clubs as Lazio host high flying Catania and Roma travel to struggling Palermo. The rivalry between the two Rome clubs is as fierce as ever and with both teams level on the same amount of points the gap between the sides is also as close as ever. This seemed unlikely not too long ago; however Roma’s resurgence in recent weeks after Zdenek Zeman’s sacking has coincided with a […]

A brace from Mario Balotelli propelled Milan back to winning ways after the disappointing midweek Champions League elimination. A first half penalty and a tap-in during the second period by Balotelli saw off a dogged Palermo outfit. It allowed the Rosseneri to continue their unbeaten run in Serie A to eleven games. For Palermo on the other hand, the prospect of relegation is becoming more and more of a reality. Their defeat to Milan was the fourteenth loss of the […]

With Serie A rolling into the last match-day, we are settling into one more scrape for survival. Fiorentina officially achieved salvation with a 1-0 victory over Lecce  on Saturday. Novara and Cesena have officially been relegated and will see each other again in Serie B. Both Lecce and Genoa lost last week to Fiorentina and Udinese respectively, meaning there is still a three point gap between the two teams in seventeenth and eighteenth place. Lecce need to travel to Verona […]

It’s been three weeks of consistently talking about the third place in Serie A and now only one fixture remains. Before this weekend, it looked certain that Napoli would end up in the Champions League but after a horrendous loss at Bologna it is once again Udinese who are in the driver’s seat. Although Udinese sit in front, the other three teams are still nipping at their heels and one slip up could cause a complete reshuffling of the standings. […]

With only four games left in the season, the teams at the bottom are making sure they are not in the drop zone come a month from now. Thus far only Cesena has been mathematically relegated thanks to their 1-0 defeat to Juventus on Wednesday. Novara will almost assuredly be the next team to be officially relegated, having to face Juventus at home on Sunday. So that leaves us with Lecce, who saw their six game undefeated streak come to […]

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 […]
