Top 5 Questions Heading Into Serie A Round 29

And We’re back! Congrats everyone, you survived another boring international break, now let’s get back to the real action. On tomorrow’s super-Saturday, all twenty Serie A teams will be in action. So here are the Top 5 questions heading into Serie A Round 29.

Maintaining Title Hope

Milan will host Sampdoria in the opening match of Round 29, as the Rossoneri will try to save what’s left of their title aspirations, and close the distance on Inter at the top of the Serie A table.

If Stefano Pioli’s men beat the Blucerchiati, then they will temporarily find themselves just three points adrift of the Nerazzurri – although the latter will have two extra matches in hand.

So can Milan reduce the gap on Saturday? and most importantly, will it still matter?

Last Chance Saloon 

We can all agree by now that Crotone already have one foot in Serie B, but Parma are not in a much better situation.

The Crociati will be hosted by Benevento, and who would have thought that the gap between the sides would reach 10 points in favor of the Sorcerers?

So will Parma be able to pull off a victory that would push them towards safety? or will they drown further with another defeat against a relegation rival?

Shifting Focus

Although Lazio aren’t enjoying their best season, Simone Inzaghi’s men had their best run between January and early February – which happened to be the Champions League off-period.

After their European elimination at the hands of the mighty Bayern Munich, the Biancocelesti can once more shift their focus back to Serie A, and they can start another solid run with Round 29 win over Spezia.

So will we finally witness the domestically-strong Lazio side that we saw last season?

Derby Pain in Store

Juventus and Torino both find themselves in unwanted league positions ahead of the Derby della Mole.

The Bianconeri’s title hopes are quickly fading, whilst the Granata are still threatened by relegation despite receiving a boost from Davide Nicola’s appointment.

So which side’s wounds will be further aggravated with a defeat in against its city rival?

Victory Road

As mentioned above, Inter find themselves on the right path towards their first Scudetto triumph in eleven years.

Antonio Conte’s men will travel to meet Bologna in Serie A round 29.

Whilst the match won’t be an easy one against Sinisa Mihajlovic and his men, but a victory would see the Nerazzurri taking a step further towards the title.

Will they grab the opportunity at the Renato Dall’Ara?
