Hello my friends. Here are the 2017-2018 Serie A Week 16 results for the Sixteenth Round on Saturday 9, Sunday 10, and Monday 11 December 2017
Surprisingly, the status quo of the top 3 positions remain the same. Juventus and Napoli failing to win their respective games to take over the first position. The awaited Derby D’Italia between Juventus vs Inter ended with a goalless draw at the Juventus Stadium. Inter reaching 40 points keeping the first position while Juventus also keeping the third position with 38 points.
A flop also for Napoli failing to win the home game against Fiorentina at the San Paolo Stadium ending with a goalless draw. Napoli needed to win the game to claim back the first position, yet, they failed.
Any way, the race for the Scudetto continues with a three way between Inter (40), Napoli (39), and Juventus with 38 points. We can expect a thriller round on Week 17 to see a fierce battle among all three trying to be in the first position. Chances are open.
A good news is for AC Milan Coach Gennaro Gattuso winning his first game after defeating Bologna at the San Siro Stadium.
Amazing, in this round we have 5 draws!! Three games ending with a goalless draw 0-0: Juventus vs Inter, Chievo Verona vs AS Roma, and Napoli vs Fiorentina. The other two draws ending with a 2-2: Cagliari vs Sampdoria and Spa vs Hellas Verona.

Hello my friends. Here are the 2017-2018 Serie A Week 15 results for the Fifteenth Round on Friday 1, Saturday 2, Sunday 3, and Monday 4 December 2017.
Wow, let me start with a mega WOW! Guess what? We have a new leader in the Serie A. Inter with 39 points is the sole leader after demolishing Chievo Verona with a convincing mega victory 5-0!!!!!! An attendance of 53,403 watching Inter vs Chievo witnessing the moment Inter becoming the new leader. Ivan Perisic scoring his first hat-trick.
Incredible so, Napoli losing the first position and stepping down to the second position after being defeated by Juventus at the San Paolo Stadium. A painful defeat for Napoli because not only they lost the leadership, but they lost the game thanks to the goal by the ex-Napoli player Gonzalo Higuain!!!!
The race for the Scudetto continues with a three way between Inter (39), Napoli (38), and Juventus with 37 points. Next week on Round 16, we have a direct clash, the Derby d’Italia between Juventus vs Inter on Saturday 9 December and we might have a new leader…… oh oh…… or will Inter hold the first position causing an upset at the Juventus Stadium? Will Napoli regain the first position? Will Juventus be the leader?
A sour debut for AC Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso who is replacing coach Vincenzo Montella. Gattuso’s main objective is to revive this agonizing Milan “once so glorious.” However, the first mission failing because Milan barely got a 2-2 draw against the last team of the Serie A “Benevento.” On paper, Milan was favorite to win the away game as Benevento had lost all their 14 games. Making matters worst for Milan is that the equalizer goal giving Benevento their first point this season was made by goalkeeper Alberto Brignoli!!!!
Happy face is also for Fiorentina crushing Sassuolo with a 3-0.

A happy day for Inter Coach Luciano Spalletti reaching the first position with 39 points after defeating Chievo at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium: Inter 5 – 0 Chievo Verona. You bet those are 3 important points and at least for this week Inter will be the sole leader of the Serie A.
Here are the declarations of Spalletti after the game courtesy by inter.it:
Spalletti saying, “The team has been able to divide tasks between themselves and because of that, it becomes easier to get results. We’re on the right road, we started the match well and got even better as time went on. Now, we have to consolidate with the path that we’re on because we’ve shown the way and now we have to be consistent.”
“There’s little to say, I have to compliment my guys, it remains that we still have to find the little something that allows to improve further. We’re working in a serious way, behaving comprehensively as professionals. I feel the responsibility and I want to manage it in the correct way. Was that an excellent reaction from the whole squad? My intention is always to pick my own team based on my own decisions and not on dropping players. I never freeze anyone out and today’s match shows that those who’ve been on the peripheries are just as strong and they work very professionally to be ready.”
“We’ve secured a vital three points today, playing against a tough side like Chievo. We played well and did not allow our opponents to find their footing. You need all the ingredients to obtain important results and we’ll now divide the credit between ourselves. Santon? We know him well and we’ve built a squad by taking every aspect into account. Davide has great quality and he knows how to perform well both in attack and defence. When faced with a challenge, he knows how to bring his skills to the fore.””
To conclude, Spalletti unsurprisingly addressed the big match in Turin next Saturday: “It will be a very complicated match for us and we must do well to cement our current position. We’ll get back to it straight away, working on the things that we know already and developing them in a certain manner. It will be a great match.”
🗣 | #Spalletti: “They were three very important points, now we have to prove ourselves.”
