Since the hey-day of the last 80′s early 90’s, financial resources of Italian Serie A clubs have decreased significantly. The world’s top players are more likely to play in Spain’s primera for clubs like Real [...]

An interesting tie awaits at the Stadio Friuli on Saturday afternoon as Udinese play host to Novara.
