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)
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!
P 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.
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.
