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

Hope may be lost for Roma. Another poor result this past weekend and Champions League football now appears to be an impossible dream. Luis Enrique’s men are currently 7 points back of city rivals Lazio for that third Champions League spot, and they have yet gone on a lengthy run of success, which does not bode well for the remaining 7 games. As Roma’s inconsistent season comes to the end, it seems the window for the third spot is now [...]

Ahead of tomorrow night’s mouth-watering Champions League semi-final between Barcelona and Milan, former Rossoneri striker Marco Simone has claimed that, “Milan have 50 per cent chance to win the second leg against Barcelona in my opinion.” Simone would be right were the game to be decided by the flip of a coin. But, this is not how the winner will emerge. Rather, what the teams produce on the pitch is what will determine just who progresses to the semi-finals. And [...]

A young star who had the world at his feet; Alberto Aquilani was viewed as one of the best players to come through the AS Roma academy. He went on to feature for the Giallorossi before injuries curtailed his involvement. English side, Liverpool FC, gambled upon Aquilani’s fitness when they signed him in August 2009. A disappointing season entailed and the Italian was loaned to Juventus. Whilst playing for the Bianconeri, he displayed an ability to dictate a match’s tempo [...]

Then there was one. After the first set of games in the round of 16 it looked like Italy would have at least two, if not three teams in the quarterfinals. After Inter’s dismal showing against Marseille, and Chelsea’s comeback against Napoli, Milan remain the only Italian team in all of Europe. It didn’t get any easier for the peninsula as Milan were handed a big task. To make it to the semi-finals they first have to face Barcelona for [...]

Tuesday night’s Coppa Italia match between Milan and Juventus was a fantastic advert for the Italian game. This season’s two best teams by some distance, eights point to be exact, played out an entertaining draw at Juventus’s new and impressive stadium. There were goals, two splendid ones at that, and the two strongest sets of players in the Serie A on display. Off the field guiding their troops forward were two coaches who represent the best of a new generation [...]

13 wins. 14 draws. Four points behind Milan and 33 left to gain this season. These numbers will be constantly going through the head of all Juventini as they ponder the run home towards the Scudetto. Will it be a first championship since Calciopoli struck, or will Juve sit by the wayside as Milan lifts the trophy for the second successive season? One thing is for certain, the run of six draws from seven matches has made the club nervous [...]

Juventus missed the chance to join Milan at the top of Serie A after being held to a 1-1 draw by Bologna at the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara on Wednesday. Juve went in to this rescheduled clash having drawn the past two matches and Antonio Conte surprisingly started Marco Borriello in a trident attack with Mirko Vucinic and the returning Simone Pepe. However, it was Bologna who took the lead in the 17th minute when Marco Di Vaio beat the offside [...]

Italian football is on a high. After years in the mires, more than partly brought about due to the calciopoli scandal of 2006, there is reason for hope. One aspect of this hope is embodied in the fact that the Serie A, for the first time since the mid-1990’s, has more representatives in the Champions League knockout stages than either England’s Premier League or Spain’s La Liga. For a league that has fallen down the pecking order, evidenced by its [...]

Juventus left Milan with a point on Saturday, but not before a drama-filled 90 minutes that still has fans and the media debating. From phantom goals to offside calls, punches to scuffles, the match kept the moviola busy and threw in some decent football too. Both sides can feel rightly aggrieved over a goal disallowed by linesman Roberto Romagnoli, but the fallout now appears to surround Gianluigi Buffon’s honesty in saying that had he known Sulley Muntari’s header crossed the [...]

It will not decide the fate of the Scudetto; the season is still too young for that. However, this Saturday’s Milan versus Juventus showdown is undoubtedly the game of the season. Milan holds a one point advantage over their adversary. Juve still has a game in hand to make up in March. The Stadio Giuseppe Meazza has been a happy hunting ground for the Bianconeri this campaign, with a League win over Inter and triumph in the Coppa Italia semi-final [...]

It was barely two years ago that Inter, guided by the inextricable genius of Jose Mourinho, were the proud torch bearers of Italian football. As Milan were embarrassingly crushed 4-0 at Manchester United and as Juventus failed to even progress past the group stages, against the odds, the Nerazzurri overcame Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Chelsea as they went on to claim European football’s most coveted prize, the Champions League. As the old cliché goes, a week in football is a [...]
