Good morning, my friends! How are you?   It’s a great day because Italy plays against San Marino today.

Here are the front pages from the Italian newspapers La Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport, and Tutto Sport, Wednesday 31 May 2017.

Italian Serie A transfer market news making the headlines including the mysterious about Kessie on-going medical tests and still not passing them.  I am happy to know that Coach Maurizio Sarri will continue to lead Napoli as he considers his work is not done yet.   Sure, Sarri would like to win at least the Scudetto.  As for the Champions League Final, what do we know…. Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane considers Argentinean forward Paulo Dybala the number one danger, more than Gonzalo Higuain.   Your take?

Crotone battling for salvation to remain in the Serie A until the last match grabbing a miracle.   Yep, their future in Serie A depended on the result of the match Palermo vs Empoli.  If Crotone wanted to remain in the Serie A, they needed to defeat Lazio and hope for Palermo to defeat Empoli.   Precisely, that is what happened!!!!   Before the match, Crotone with 31 points is -1 point below Empoli  with 32 points.  This is why the victory for Crotone is a must and they overtake the 17th position to save themselves while Empoli goes down to the 18th position meaning “relegation to the Serie B next season.”

In this Round 38, we will have a direct duel to see who will become the top scorer of the Serie A.  Currently, AS Roma forward Edin Dzeko leads with 28 goals and Napoli forward Dries Mertens with 27 goals.

It’s also a sad day for Italian football fans, especially for Roma fans.  Legendary Captain Francesco Totti is playing his last game with AS Roma today Sunday 28 May ending his glorious years leading the Roman gladiators.

Juventus win the 2016 – 2017 Serie A Scudetto with 88 points after defeating Crotone in Week 37. A historic moment, this is the 6th Consecutive Scudetto.
