Serie A Round 20 from A to Z

A for Atalanta: Two victories, against Napoli and Roma, in six days for the Orobici. What a team! Next match is against Napoli again…

B for Brignoli. Benevento’s goalkeeper is a good luck talisman for the Witches!

C for clear hand fouls in the box by Federico Bernarderschi and Dries Mertens. Is VAR losing its religion?

D for distance between Napoli-Juventus and the Inter-Roma-Lazio trio. Looks like the Scudetto is going to be a matter between the Azzurri and the Bianconeri

E for eighty million euro paid by Roma for Patrick Schick, Gregoire Defrel and Cengiz Under. Mohamed Salah, where are you?

F for foul by Marten De Roon on Aleksandar Kolarov, punished with a red card! Seriously?

G for goleada, as Lazio beat SPAL 5-2.

H for holidays, as Serie A will now take a one-week break.

I for idiots, Verona supporters singing racist chants against Napoli, and Cagliari fans booing at Blaise Matuidi. Disgrace!

J for Joya. Paulo Dybala just seemed to be back to his levels, and now an injury will stop him for 30-40 days. Good luck!

K for Kalinic, the softest player for AC Milan? What did you mean by that, Gattuso?

L for leavers, as Simone Verdi, Maxime Gonalons, and Nikola Maksimovic may soon leave their current clubs.

Verdi
Simone Verdi may soon leave Bologna during the next transfer market window…or maybe no?

M for mourning Italian football legend Antonio Valentin Angelillo. Goodbye, Recordman!

N for Nainggolan, and the 100000 euro fine he received for celebrating NewYear’s Eve too heavily…

O for obtaining three more points, and slowly coming back. Second win in a row for Benevento!

P for poker by Ciro Immobile, four goals scored and the right to take the ball home with him. What a season for the Nazionale striker!

Ciro Immobile was literally unstoppable for SPAL defenders, and with four goals retook the lead in the top scorer race

Q for the quality of play shown by Napoli against Verona. Superlative.

R for Radovanovic, whose magic touch put the ball into the top corner of the net for a wonderful goal!

S for surprise, as Leonardo Bonucci’s goal was a kind gift from Alex Cordaz – who forgot for a moment to be a goalkeeper.

T for Tommasi, hopefully the new President of FIGC (The Italian Football Federation).

U for Uefa Europa League, six teams are battling for two spots into its next edition.

V for victims, Miralem Pjanic and TV host Fabio Caressa commenting on the referee not using VAR to check Federico Bernardeschi’s hand foul.

W for Walter Mazzarri and his first match as Torino coach: Three goals and three points! Whoa! Welcome back, Mister!

X for xenophobia and football, always a bitter and sad combination. Let’s stop it now!

Y for youth team, where 17-year-old Moise Kean should still be playing. On the contrary, he already is an important Serie A striker.

Z for Zhang Jindong, Walter Sabatini, and their plan to re-launch Luciano Spalletti’s Inter.
