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

All week we will be unveiling the winners of our Team of the Year voting with a mixture of regular and guest writers. Here’s the first entry, courtesy of the excellent Danny Penza. For much of his career, Christian Abbiati played second fiddle to a number a different goalkeepers. Right or wrong, Abbiati rarely got consistent minutes in goal as a starter.

This season of Calcio has been more fascinating than usual, as teams that usually dominate have struggled (Inter, Roma, Juventus) and some surprise packages have arisen (Napoli, Bologna). Some of the biggest catalysts are well-known and often heralded. The sparkling form of Edinson Cavani; the stellar defense of Andrea Ranocchia; Napoli’s home fortress: all of which have been reported on endlessly. However, there have been some equally impressive facets of Serie A this season that may have gone overlooked. Here’s [...]

Julian De Martinis previews the weekends matches for us Lazio - Cesena. A game that might be tighter than expected. The home side have lost two of their last three and will be reeling from their Derby loss last weekend, as well as the subsequent suspensions of Stefan Radu and Cristian Ledesma.

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.
