Serie A Round 19 from A to Z

B for Breakaway, with Napoli (48 points) and Juventus (47) gaining distance from the pursuers.

C for Coda, who gave Benevento their first victory with his goal! Will Benevento now avoid relegation?

D for disallowed goals due to offside, with Roma losing 0-2 to…VAR and referee Marco Orsato!

E for efforts as Crotone players fought with quality and organization against Napoli. Good game, Sharks!

F for frustration at drawing their game. Roma still cannot make it to the Serie A top three clubs!

G for a good point for Milan against Fiorentina. The Rossoneri are looking for continuity.

H for Happy New Year! We wish all our readers a fantastic 2018!

I for impudent, Antonio Candreva spitting at his old supporters! Shame on you!

N for new entries, as Udinese and Sassuolo are now flying thanks to their new coaches Oddo and Iachini. Football Revolution!

O for own goal as the one made by Danilo.

P for poor like the quality of many pitches in Serie A Stadiums: Marassi in Genoa, Enzo Scida in Crotone, the Olimpico in Turin. A good agronomist is wanted and needed!

Q for qualitatively superior, what Juventus proved to be as they smashed Hellas Verona.

R for Round First Leg finished! Next week, the second part of the league starts! Exciting!

S for seven matches in a row with no losses for Fiorentina, but only two victories among them. That’s still as slow paceSlow.

T for transfer market window opening on January 3, 2018.

U for useless title of Campioni d’Inverno (“Winter Champions”), as Napoli’s Maurizio Sarri said that ‘Being the Champions in May is what matter.’

V for Verdi. Will he leave Bologna? Roma and Napoli are on him…

X for Xtra time as Quagliarella finalized twice against SPAL. Three points down for Sampdoria.
