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!

G for “Gallo” Belotti, who finally went back to his standards! What a great player!

H for Hamsik, 115 goals with Napoli just like Diego Armando Maradona – two legends now share the best scoring tally ever for the Partenopei.

I for Icardi, 17 goals in 17 games for the current Serie A top scorer.

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

K for Kevin Lasagna, five goals scored in his last five matches. How much does he cost? Protagonist!

L for Losers, an almost hopeless Benevento. A desperate team!

M for a monotonous match between Fiorentina and Genoa, which ended in a nil-nil draw.

N for not sure if the VAR system worked well this week…

O for more order in defense needed by Atalanta players.

P for penalties, given by VAR and missed by …

Q for quality and control, as Napoli got back at the top spot of the standing with three goals against Torino.

S for SOS La Joya…Dybala, where are you?

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

Inter’s “lucky charm,” President Erik Thohir picked the wrong day to show up at San Siro as his club conceded their first seasonal match

U for Udinese and their three precious points earned and conquered at Stadio San Siro – aka La Scala del Calcio.

V for former Spanish Football Federation President Villar, who said that Spain in at risk of missing the World Cup…Another spot opens for Italy?

W for What a mess, Milan!

X for an ex-traordinary Serie A, with four teams in four points fighting for the Championship. A close competition at last!

Y for Yes, Sir! Two goals scored by Sergio Floccari, who knocked down Benevento almost by himself.

Z for zen meditation, suggested to Simone Inzaghi and Gennaro Gattuso. Keep it calm, guys!
