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

Next up for Italian Serie A, Sunday’s Derby della Lanterna. But the real question is… will Genoa C.F.C place the nail in Sampdoria’s coffin? Il Doria sit in 17th place, one point above relegation. The slide into Serie B could well depend on derby results in little over 24 hours time. Has club president Riccardo Garrone made the mistake of a lifetime? Should he have kissed that beautiful but thorny Cassano butt-cheek? And with one star player out the door wasn’t [...]

Maybe Sampdoria don’t want to go down after all For an entire half, Sampdoria-Brescia played out like a classically dour game between two sides so desperate for points, neither wanted to risk conceding. Then the 50th minute game and the game exploded, resulting in six goals before the end of the match. Each side earned a point which does little for either side. Brescia lie in 19th and are likely relegated, five points from safety with only nine left to [...]

Sampdoria came away from Bari on Easter Saturday with a big smile and a much needed 1-0 away win. A Nicola Pozzi penalty relegated Bari to Serie B and gave Sampdoria a massive life line in their race to stay in the league.

Six things that the weekend taught us, including one player’s demise, one team’s redemption, and many giant question marks. Maybe there’s something to the Vucinic rumors… In news that most Romanisti don’t want to hear but surely must be thinking, Mirko Vucinic has looked rather off in recent weeks. ‘Big Game Mirko’ used to be the moniker of the Montenegrin as he scored goals against the likes of Real Madrid, Inter, and Milan with ease, although his record against the [...]
