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

The last time they finished first and second in Serie A has been cancelled from the record books by the Calciopoli scandal. Prior to that, you have to go back 16 years to find a time when they filled the champions and runners-up spot in the league table. So we should really give a warm welcome to a Juventus versus Milan Scudetto fight - it has certainly been a while. Of course, Udinese might have something to say this season [...]

Lazio welcome Atalanta to the Eternal City hoping that last week’s humiliation at Siena was a freak performance. Down to 10-men after the sending-off of first choice ‘keeper Albano Bizzarri’s , the Biancocelesti were thrashed 4-0 by the relegation-threatened Robur. It was nothing less than they deserved. Recklessness and defensive mistakes cost Lazio dearly and allowed Mattia Destro and Emanuele Calaio to grab two goals each. Andre Dias and Mobido Diakité will be welcomed back with open arms after last [...]

Juventus will be at home for the first time in 2012 on Sunday when they welcome Cagliari to the Juventus Stadium. Starting the New Year off with more of a whimper than a bang, Juve did manage to take home the three points from Lecce even if it was a struggle. As Antonio Conte stated afterwards, they will look to build from that match and improve their performance. Match-winner Alessandro Matri is expected to start after the injury suffered by [...]

This week we saw 31 goals, four red cards and no draws for an exciting return to Serie A action this past weekend. Cagliari and Bologna upset higher-ranked opposition, Inter’s revival continued with a 5-0 hammering of Parma and Milan cruised through surprise package Atalanta, but nothing caught the eye like Siena’s humiliation of Lazio. Despite widescale reshuffling necessitated from missing the likes of Stefano Mauri and Federico Marchetti, Lazio were confident. The Aquile boasted an unbeaten away record and [...]

guest writer - Luca Cetta Looking to build from a start to the season in which they sit second behind Milan only on goal difference and remain the only unbeaten side in Europe’s top leagues, January is shaping up to be an important month on and off the pitch for Juventus. During 2009-2010 Juventus lost three out of four in January, while last season’s disastrous loss against Parma (including Fabio Quagliarella’s season ending injury) was compounded by a thrashing at [...]

As the Serie A season enters the winter break, Lazio sit firmly in fourth position on 30 points after an encouraging start to the season. They have only lost two games in the league (against Juventus and, once high-flying, Genoa) and they have qualified from the Europa League group stages. The additions made to the squad in the summer have been incredibly influential in helping carry the squad forward. From back to front most of the new signings have made [...]

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, [...]
