Serie A Round 19 from A to Z

A for Away, as in 2017 Napoli remained unbeaten far from their home ground San Paolo – only team in the top five European leagues.

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?

This historical goal by Massimo Coda allowed Benevento to catch their first Serie A win ever, as the Streghe beat Chievo 1-0

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!

J for la Joya is finally back! Two goals and an outstanding performance against Verona for Paulo Dybala.

Paulo Dybala contributed with a brace to Juventus’ 3-1 victory against Hellas Verona

K for karate skills shown by Senna Miangue, which earned him two yellow and one red cards!

L for Lazio president Lotito, allegedly refusing over 60 million euro for Sergej Milinkovic Savic.

M for Montella: The former Milan coach has just been hired as Sevilla’s trainer. Good Luck!

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.

Fabio Quagliarella added two more goals to his fantastic seasonal scoring tally, helping Sampdoria to overcome SPAL in the last minutes of the game

Y for Yaay, Benevento got three points! Finally!

Z for Zenga vs VAR: How does VAR works? Claiming a penalty for a hand foul by Dries Mertens…
