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

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 good news is that Italy, with a 1-0 victory, have secured qualification to the European Championships in Poland and Ukraine next summer. The bad news - it’s not that bad - is that the they haven’t been living up to the hype recently. Italy have been compared with Barcelona an awful lot during Cesare Prandelli’s tenure in charge of the Azzurri, but any viewers tuning in to see a Catalan imitation tonight will have been left feeling unsatisfied, confused [...]

The Serie A season begins in a little over three weeks, yet the curtain raiser for Italy’s top flight takes place this Saturday.  While Inter have been a constant in the Supercoppa over the last six years, this year’s matchup holds special significance.  Not only is it once again being held in Beijing’s historic Bird’s Nest Stadium, Inter’s opponents are city rivals and last season’s Scudetto holders, AC Milan. Unfortunately for the Nerazzurri, the last seven days leading up to [...]

The 2010 -11 Serie A season has come to an end and it is the time of the year when players pack up their bags and jet off to tropical paradises the world over.  Well, not quite.  The majority of teams are in the process of cleaning out their lockers but for Inter, there is one last hurdle to jump in the hunt for silverware. There is an important match this weekend, and no, it is not happening in London.  [...]

The script may change, but the plot stays the same: Go down a goal, only to come back in the second half and win in dramatic fashion. Yet, the only thing that was similar between last week’s match against Lazio and this past weekend’s away match to Cesena was the 2-1 scoreline in favour of Inter. While a relatively easy match when looked at on paper, the trip to the Dino Manuzzi was always going to be a tricky tie. [...]

Three Goalscorers Though perhaps technically cheating since the first three are all goalscorers associated with the number twelve, this point (these points?) still stand. Giampaolo Pazzini, affectionately known as “Il Pazzo” due to a combination of his last name plus his often crazy antics, looks to feature for Inter this weekend in a massive clash. The Nerazzurri battle for third against Lazio, who are a mere four points below them- a number which, should be noted, is a divisor of [...]

We asked Francesco Pizolla and TB to preview the biggest game in Serie A this season. This Saturday, at 20:45 CET, the most important Milan derby in recent years will take place. This is probably the most important derby since the 2003 Champions League semi-final derby, and Christian Abbiati even stated a few days ago that the atmosphere surrounding the Milan camp at the moment is very similar to how it was in 2003. As much as you read from [...]

The obvious choices for the difference makers of theInter would be Samuel Eto’o and Wesley Sneijder, while for cross-town rivals Milan it is a question of who will step up in place of Zlatan Ibrahimovich. But the two clubs are much more than their respective superstars, it is too easy to just point out how many goals Eto’o has contributed this season or how Sneijder runs the offense.  It may well be a team game but there are always certain [...]
