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

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 [...]

Italy and Uruguay face off in just a few hours, and, providing the two sides don’t resort to the type of defense necessary in a match termed a “friendly”, this one promises a bit of excitement. Think about it: Mario Balotelli and Luis Suarez on the same pitch, facing off against each other. The possibilities for an epic showdown involving biting, kicking, tantrums and possibly a choreographed dance routine featuring ribbons, darts and balloon is immense. Now, if you’ve come [...]

After consecutive hard fought away victories in the Champions league that have left them topping the group, midweek European encounters have proved to be a welcome break from Internazionale’s disastrous domestic campaign. A 2-1 defeat to bitter rivals Juventus last weekend means that the Serpenti are flirting dangerously with the relegation zone and a massive eleven points from the top of the table already, but a comfortable 2-0 victory against Lille at the San Siro means that the 2010 European [...]

A memorable round for the Italian clubs who took seven points from a possible nine to place themselves in good positions for progression into the knock-out stages.

Inspired performances by Andrea Pirlo and Antonio Cassano lead Italy to a memorable 3-0 victory over an ordinary Northern Ireland side in Pescara. Qasa Alom reports AC Milan’s Antonio Cassano was warned prior to the match that this would be his last chance in the national set-up after offensive comments to a journalist last week – and FantAntonio really didn’t disappoint with a brilliant brace. However it was his striker partner and this years form player Sebastian Giovinco who started [...]

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 [...]
