Cesena, on the other hand, pulled off a very decent draw against Juventus after being down two goals. Should Lazio fail to gain all three points here, the [...]

This new weekly feature may be titled “Northern Lights”, due to the fact that these Serie A clubs hail from the north of Italy, but based on league form it would be more propos to entitle it “Lower End Teams, So Low That Most of Them Are Fighting Relegation.” Only one of these teams is truly shining. The Contender: Udinese Udinese continue to play sparkling football and have been duly rewarded, reaching the height of fourth place for the first [...]

Little more than a year ago, Fiorentina were playing in the Champions League and rightly earning admiration all across Europe for their exciting play built upon a team of extremely talented young players.

Fiorentina shocked the Rosanero in an open affair to celebrate their first away win of the season. Qasa Alom reports… ‘Meh’ is probably the most fitting interjection for Fiorentina this season…. they sit in 10th place, with a +1 goal difference, 8 wins, 8 draws  and (yup you’ve guessed it) 8 losses to their name.

by guest writer Liam Apicella - Champions League hunting Palermo will be hoping that they have no more early kick offs for the remainder of the season.

It’s been a fabulous week to be a Lecce supporter, a fantastic win in the capital in week 19 against Lazio was backed up with a courageous performance on Sunday evening against league leaders Milan to earn a 1-1 draw and instill some new found belief in their fight for Serie A survival.
