Serie A Round 17 from A to Z

A for Alessandro Matri, one shot, one goal, and three points for Sassuolo against the Doria. Mighty!

B for Barella, a great talent for Cagliari and for the Italian National Team. Write his name down!

C for Crotone, finally showing again some organized and concrete football. Three well-deserved points!

D for defense, Roma still hold the most efficient defensive phase of Serie A: Ten goals conceded in 16 games. Not bad.

E for extra time, as the Giallorossi found three points only at the 94th minute.

F for Fatal Verona: Once again, Milan got hammered at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi. That’s history repeating itself!

J for Juventus, three goals to Bologna and 2nd place in the league earned. Are the champions back?!

T for Thohir, first time in San Siro this season for Inter’s President, and the Nerazzurri got defeated 1-3 by Udinese!
