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

Internazionale targeting the Champion’s League? Not at this rate. President Massimo Moratti declared: “we have to end the season in the Champion’s League places. That is an absolute must.” This is quite a statement for a team who are eight points below third place Milan and ten behind leaders Juventus. Many headlines have been dedicated to Inter’s recent plight as this is the club’s worst start to a season since the 1940’s. They’ve changed managers, lost key players to injury, [...]

Inter Milan took a toothless Fiorentina side apart on Saturday night to claim three valuable points that see them move up to 11th in Serie A. Missing the likes of Javier Zanetti, Dejan Stankovic, Diego Forlan and Wesley Sneijder through injury and suspension, Claudio Ranieri had to shuffle his pack. Maicon, Yuto Nagatomo and Lucio came into the backline while Philippe Coutinho replaced Ricky Alvarez on the left flank. The Jovetic and Montolivo-less Viola, meanwhile, handed Adem Ljajic a rare [...]

Internazionale take on Genoa tomorrow evening looking to gain a crucial win in their quest for European qualification. The match has been rescheduled, after original tie was cancelled due to severe flooding in the region and the tragic loss of several lives. Ranieri wanted to pay his respects to those who lost their lives; he said: “I think a very important thing, more so than the game, is that people don’t forget. It is necessary that those in charge do [...]

It was a mixed week for Serie A clubs competing in Europe’s top competition. An enthralling encounter with the world’s best side ended in disappointment for AC Milan, while city rivals Inter did just enough to earn qualification into the knockout stages with a draw in Turkey. But for calcio fanatics, the highlight of this week’s Champions League action came from a 2-1 contest at the Stadio San Paolo; at the expense of Manchester City no less. With two more [...]

To say that Inter’s Champions League match Tuesday night against Ligue 1 champions Lille was a “must win” would be a massive understatement.  After a lackluster performance at the weekend that resulted in a loss to Catania, the heat was on and cranked up to the maximum temperature. Yes, one could argue the penalty given against Luca Castellazzi was a soft call and it should never have been given.  The thing is, the Inter squad that took the pitch in [...]

Inter versus Napoli was supposed to be a beautiful night of football.  It was supposed to showcase two top sides in Serie A who had represented Italy proudly in Champions League midweek.  It was supposed to be a battle between two teams potentially challenging for the Scudetto.  It was supposed to be a beautiful night of football. The Nerazzurri were in the midst of finding themselves again under Claudio Ranieri and had come into this match with back to back [...]

Serie A Weekly guest writer Michael Moruzzi with a few words on an Inter turnaround in the making Inter didn’t lend themselves to stability during the past two decades. The dogmatic approach to accumulating silverware – epitomised by Milan and Juventus in the late 1980’s and 90’s – was not for them. They followed their own path and for a long time there were few in Europe that could rival Inter’s spending, but as numerous immensely talented players came and [...]

What a rollercoaster week it has been for the Nerazzurri faithful…yet again. As expected, last Wednesday brought about the official end to Gian Piero Gasperini’s reign as Inter head coach, with the damning 3-1 loss to Novara solidifying his fate. After zero wins in the first five competitive matches, a stop plug was needed to halt any more of Inter’s season running down the drain. The stop plug’s name?  Claudio Ranieri. Many have questioned the hiring of Ranieri and his [...]

One point.  Zero wins.  Three matches. Welcome to the start of Inter’s 2011-12 Serie A season. What should have been an easy win in celebration of Captain Javier Zanetti’s record breaking night in the Nerazzurri shirt, turned into an embarrassing night at the hands of Serie A newcomers, Novara.  Instead of commemorating the astounding 757 times ‘Pupi’ has worn the black and blue to place him as Inter’s all-time appearance leader, the post-match chatter was filled with criticism towards Inter [...]

So the new Serie A season is upon us once more. So far the typical clichés have proven to be incorrect. The age old stereotype of Italian defences being impenetrable was shattered with 37 goals being scored in the opening weekend. Much focus was placed upon Gian Piero Gasperini’s favoured 3-4-3 system and how this would allow Internazionale to regain their Serie A crown, from bitter city rivals AC Milan. A strained pre-season saw the “old-guard” handed new contracts, whilst [...]

The Serie A season is finally underway and with it comes the hopes, expectations, and dreams for all clubs in Italy’s top flight.  Everything seems a little brighter with the promises of what can happen but when everything falls apart after the first match, that light is much dimmer than before. Preseason only garnered more questions than answers in regards to Inter manager Gian Piero Gasperini’s formation and tactics, as he has been very insistent in molding the squad to [...]
