Serie A Week 10 Roundup: Fine Form Continues For Milan

Only eight games were played in Serie A this weekend due to the bad rain in Naples and in Genoa in which two games were called off due to the severity of the rain. Sadly people lost their lives in Italy due to the bad weather. So two big games in Genoa-Inter and Napoli-Juventus were called off and will be played at a later day.

Saturday 5th November
Two games on the Saturday evening with Palermo entertained Bologna and the home side winning in a convincing manner by a score of 3-1. Eran Zahavi goal in the first half and two second half goals from Matias Silvestre and Josip Ilicic gave Palermo the points, Bologna did gate a late consolation goal thanks to Gaston Ramirez.

The night game was played in horrible weather conditions on a artificial pitch as Roma travelled to Novara. Roma won the game 2-0 thanks to late second half strikes from Bojan and Pablo Daniel Osvaldo to give Luis Enrique side a much needed victory.

Sunday 6th November
Only six games were played on Sunday due to the two games being postponed. The lunch time kick off was supposed to be Genoa-Inter but that was called off on Saturday afternoon due to bad weather. Atalanta fine form continues as they picked up a 1-0 win over Cagliari thanks to that man German Denis late goal gave them the three points. Denis has to be an outside tip for top goalscorer. In the bottom of the table clash Cesena lost at home to Lecce 1-0 thanks to a Juan Gillermo Cuadrado deflected effort early in the second half. Chievo heaped more misery on Fiorentina as the flying donkeys dispatched the Viola 1-0 thanks to a second half strike from Luca Rigoni from close range gave Chievo the three points.

The trend of 1-0 continued to the capital as Lazio huffed and puffed and got a late 1-0 win over Parma when Giuseppe Sculli bundled home from one yard out six minutes from time. Udinese won at home again as they beat a resurgent Siena side 2-1. Dusan Basta opened the scoring and then Antonio Di Natale just after the hour doubled the lead. Francesco Bolzoni fantastic goal for Siena fifteen minutes from time was to no avail. AC Milan cruised to home win thanks to a 4-0 home win over Catania. Zlatan Ibrahimovic got the opener from the penalty spot; Robinho doubled the lead halfway through the first half. Then two goals in the second half as Clarence Seedorf got the third and Gianluca Zambrotta got the fourth.

The evening game between Napoli and Juventus was called off on Sunday due to the bad weather which has claimed lives in Italy.
There is a two way tie at the top of the table as both Udinese and Lazio are top of the table on 21 points with AC Milan in third on 20. Serie A takes a break for International football next week and will return on the weekend 19th/20th November.
