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

Despite being briefly reopened by a slew of positive results, Palermo proved to be solely committed to only one competition left in the season: the Coppa Italia. Facing a resurgent - albeit not yet saved - Parma side away from home, Delio Rossi’s boys knew that the competition would be fierce.

As the Serie A season draws to a close, there is still almost everything left to fight for (Except for Bari): Champions’ League, the Scudetto, the two relegation spots not filled by Bari (They are so terrible however that were they to occupy two spots, it would seem hardly less than deserving). What can viewers look forward to? Normalcy Should Resume. Last matchday, only four sides in the top half of the table won, as Inter, Udinese, Lazio, and Roma [...]

On February 27th, Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini told the press that only if he saw the Madonna appear to him in a dream would be spared from a sacking after the team’s 7-0 loss at home to Udinese. Unfortunately, there was no vision and the following day Delio was sent home. The fiery patron brought in the famous caretaker and motivator Serse Cosmi to shake up the squad. Yet, after only 36 days at the helm, Cosmi’s reign came to [...]

With most of the peninsula focused on the Milan derby this weekend with the front runners taking on their second place rivals for the Scudetto, it would be easy to forget about another derby taking place that is just as important for the parties involved. The Derby della Sicilia between Palermo and Catania is second to none in terms of rivalry and passion. While most of Serie A may focus on the more glamorous matchup between Milan and Inter, an entire island’s inhabitants [...]

Much changed and much accomplished. Cesare Prandelli continues his brilliant run with the Italian National Team with a two-nil victory over Ukraine. What exactly can Italy fans take away from this? Here are six points worth noting. Cesare Prandelli is the new Tinkerman. A better one. Claudio Ranieri, the old “Tinkerman”, has become somewhat infamous for tinkering in all the wrong ways. For the former Chelsea boss, a set starting eleven is as a spider to an arachnophobe : something [...]

This season of Calcio has been more fascinating than usual, as teams that usually dominate have struggled (Inter, Roma, Juventus) and some surprise packages have arisen (Napoli, Bologna). Some of the biggest catalysts are well-known and often heralded. The sparkling form of Edinson Cavani; the stellar defense of Andrea Ranocchia; Napoli’s home fortress: all of which have been reported on endlessly. However, there have been some equally impressive facets of Serie A this season that may have gone overlooked. Here’s [...]

402. The number represents the amount of minutes that had passed by since Palermo had last experienced the feeling of putting the ball in the back of the net. Beyond ending the scoring drought, the rosanero managed to end another terrible streak, beating league leaders Milan to stop the free-fall at five consecutive defeats. After over a month of turmoil, the Sicilians finally gave their supporters a reason to smile again. Going into only his third game at the helm, [...]

Julian De Martinis previews the weekends matches for us Lazio - Cesena. A game that might be tighter than expected. The home side have lost two of their last three and will be reeling from their Derby loss last weekend, as well as the subsequent suspensions of Stefan Radu and Cristian Ledesma. Cesena, on the other hand, pulled off a very decent draw against Juventus after being down two goals. Should Lazio fail to gain all three points here, the [...]
