A for André Silva? No, thanks! We want only Cutrone! Two goals, and Milan keep running towards Europe! #SPALMilan
B for Brozovic clapping back at his supporter whistling at him. ‘Epic Brozo’ times are far far away. #InterBologna
C for coast to coast, as Belotti got the ball, run for 75 meters and said ‘This is Football!” – What a terrific goal, Sir!
D for Derby della Mole, Torino vs Juventus is coming up next week! Exciting!
E for Ex, Higuain against Napoli, Benatia against Roma, Bernardeschi against Fiorentina: Three lads and nine crucial points, Juventus strategy of getting the best players from direct rivals pays back.
F for Faouzi Ghoulam, Forza Fraté! (“Stay strong, Brother” in Neapolitan slang). A new disgrace for the 2017 best African player, who was almost back from a serious injury at his right knee ligaments. The Algerian player now fractured his right kneecap. Season finished for him? #Napoli
G for “Giak, si gira!” (Italian for “Action!”), but Chievo Verona missed a new chance to get out of their crisis. Even with their new player Emanuele “Giak” Giaccherini, the Clivensi couldn’t win.
H for Hellas Verona, 5th defeat in a row and the relegation nightmare gets closer and closer. #HellasSampdoria
I for Icardi sì, Icardi no, (“Icardi, yes or no?”) and Spaletti found his smile back.
J for Joystick & Playstation: Milan, Napoli and Roma reminded us why we love this game! Football!
K for Karamoh, first Italian goal for him, and Inter finally came back to victory after eight games! The 3rd position is secured! (for the moment) #InterBologna
L for Laxalt, a goal in the 91st minute, and Genoa got home with three important points. In extremis!
M for Mazzarri, who brought a top team momentum to his Torino. With the Tuscanian coach, the Granata seem to have forgotten what it means to lose!
N for nothing really happened in Cagliari-Sassuolo. 0-0 and quite a boring game.
O for overture. Spectacular football proposed by Napoli. The Serie A leading team won 4-1 against a strong Lazio, and promptly answered back to Juventus. Might this be the overture for something seriously important? Let’s wait for May and see! #Scudetto
P for painful football for Benevento. The transfer window gave the Streghe some more structure, but miracles don’t happen every day. Last position and only seven points collected so far.
Q for Quagliarella, who once again made the headlines. 17 goals in 23 games. Incredible season. #HellasSampdoria
R for reacting against racism abuse? A yellow card for Italian striker Mario Balotelli! That’s insane! #FranceNice
S for Semplici or Reja, that is the question. Will SPAL take a chance and change their coach? #SPALMilan 0-4
T for transparency needed. VAR, so much work to do, and so much noise around it. Please, stop it!
U for Uefa Champions League and Europa League. Juventus, Roma, Lazio, Napoli, Atalanta, and Milan – please get ready for the double appointment!
V for vicious foul, and well-deserved red card for Masina. What a risk for Inter’s new player Lisandro Lopez!
W for water polo in Crotone, as the showering rain made the pitch exceptionally heavy. #CrotoneAtalanta
X for X-rated own goal by Wallace, which helped Napoli to run towards their victory.
Y for year over year Sampdoria gained eight more points. Champions League is in the aim!
Z for Zest, as both Roma and Inter finally came back to conquer three points. We were missing you both!
