If you were visiting Parma (for cheese undoubtedly) and decided to drive to Bologna (for some delicious meats to go with the cheese), you would take the A1 southeast, driving by smaller Italian cities like Modena. However, if you were to turn off at Via Modena and go away from that city, you would drive to the city of Sassuolo, an Italian city known for its industry and not for its history or food, unlike many other Italian cities. However, [...]

A late Pablo Osvaldo goal finally settled a back-and-forth match and gave Roma a critical three points in the race for Serie A’s final Champions League spot. Fiorentina remains one point behind Milan going into Sunday but i Lupi are themselves four points out of a Champions League place, depending on Sunday’s results.

Despite establishing themselves as a mid-table team for 2012-2013, Cagliari last weekend came to Naples determined to give Napoli a game.

While the commentators on BeIn Sport focused on the more high-profile Edinson Cavani, the winning goal was [...]

In a UEFA Champions League year defined by large scorelines, this blowout may be the most shocking. Barcelona came out looking flat and was blown out by an in-form Bayern Munich 4-0. The big news pre-game was that Barcelona would start the not 100% Lionel Messi, hoping that the creative forward would weave some magic through the slower Bayern backs. The move backfired spectacularly, as Messi looked tentative throughout the game and rarely tried to advance the ball when he [...]
