Serie A Round 25 from A to Z

A for astonishment for Crotone supporters, as their club fell against the weakest team of the season.

B for Business Card Napoli, seven touches in ten seconds to allow Allan finalizing the decisive 1-0 goal. A spot for football!

C for Cutrone, now a first choice player for Milan. When ‘young and Italian’ is cheaper and better than André Silva and Nikola Kalinic.

D for Diabaté, the man of the week, as Sandro and his teammates can still hope for the best. Will Benevento shock the world? #Benevento-Crotone

E for Emanuele Giaccherini show, Roberto Inglese’s goal, Lenonardo Pavoletti’s illusion… So much past, present, and future Napoli in #ChievoCagliari

F for fantasy, dribbling, unpredictability, genius. Happy Birthday “Codino” Roberto Baggio! (who turned 51 on February 18)

Happy Birthday, Roby…Italian football misses you so much…

G for grotesque own-goal Skriniar-Ranocchia, a technical mistake by the Slovakian defender which brought Inter to their knees. Spalletti, didn’t you say your Roma was playing to win the Scudetto? (See letter R) #GenoaInter

H for head-to-head battles in the relegation zone: Bologna-Sassuolo, Chievo-Cagliari, and Benevento-Crotone. Chievo, Bologna and Benevento all took a step forward. Beautiful!

I for Immobile, again and again. Two goals for the wannabe Golden Boot 2018! The Italian player is only one goal away from Edinson Cavani and Harry Kane!

K for kick off, because Chiellini’s “slap” to Belotti called at least for a kick off! However, referee Orsato ruled it “unintentional.” Interpretation?

L for lights up for Eusebio Di Francesco, as his Roma is starting to stack-up points again!  #UdineseRoma

M for minimum efforts for Napoli and Juventus, both winning 1-0. Will the Serie A duel for Scudetto find an outcome only in the last round of the season?

N for No to Monday Football! And we will never stop saying it! #LazioVerona

O for Oro (“Gold”) – Olympics 2018, Michela Moioli and Sofia Goggia, winners of gold medals in snowboard cross and downhill. Sorelle d’Italia! Thank you, Ladies, and Congratulations!

for ping pong between Francesco Totti, who said that ”Spalletti never had a face-to-face with me’, and Inter’s coach, who replied: “With me, Roma was playing for Scudetto.” High-Tension for the third position! #RomaInter

R for Roberto Donadoni winning the Emilia Derby and keeping a 13-point margin over the relegation zone. #BolognaSassuolo

S for sometimes they come back! A magical Cengiz Under pushed Roma towards another victory.  #UdineseRoma

T for Torino-Juve, the show being mostly on the bleachers. Torino and Juventus’ supporters welcomed the Derby della Mole with some beautiful choreography.

…and here’s how city rivals Torino replied (Photo: Lapresse)

U for useless point for Atalanta and Fiorentina, 1-1 and no one happy. The 6th position for the Europa League is still far for both…

V for verità (“Truth”): “When I was playing for Gremio, we had to lose a game. We could not let Internacional win the Championship,” Douglas Costa admitted. Shocking!  #GremioJuventus

W for what did happen? While Lazio defeated a weaker Hellas Verona, Stefan De Vrij and his club brusquely split apart. The Dutch player will not be renewing his contract with Biancocelesti, and will rather move to another team.

Y for yesterday football was played only on Sundays…Today, there’s always a match on, from Monday to Sunday! Confusion and too many games!

Z for zingy moment for AC Milan, who are running to surpass Inter, as Giacomo Bonaventura said.
