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.

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.
