Hello, my friends. Here are the 2018-2019 Serie A Week 33 Results / Thirty-third Round on Saturday 20 and Monday 22 April 2019.  There are only 5 games after this one to end the season.

Here is the current situation. Juventus won their 8th consecutive Scudetto with 5 games in advance reaching 87 points.  Juventus overturned the result and defeated Fiorentina with a 2-1 claiming not only the victory but also the Scudetto!   Mathematically speaking, Juventus needed just 1 point to be declared as winners of the 2018-2019 Serie A Scudetto.

A blow for Napoli suffering a home defeat at the San Paolo Stadium.  The game ended Napoli 1 – 2 Atalanta.  It’s just a pity for the fans seeing not only this defeat, but the pain to be -20 points below Juventus celebrating their Scudetto. Great news is for Atalanta because this victory helped them climb from the 6th to the 5th position reaching 56 points.

The battle for the third position is still open. One problem is for AC Milan suffering a setback. AC Milan failing to win the away game at the Ennio Tardini Stadium ending with a 1-1 draw. Milan were leading in the 69th minute with the goal by Samu Castillejo. Parma shattered Milan’s dream when defender Bruno Alves scored the equalizer goal to give Parma 1 point.

First Leg: Ajax 1 – 1 Juventus

Sad news for Italian football.   Juventus lost the UEFA Champions League Quarterfinals Second Leg game on Tuesday 16 April 2019 at the Allianz Stadium in Turin, Italy.   It is a  sour defeat because the  aggregate result is Juventus 2 – 3 Ajax and is eliminated.   Ajax qualifying for the Champions League Semifinal and Juvents is out.  Oh m y gosh, it  hurts me even to say it.  I am so sad.

It is Juventus to open the score in the 28th minute following a corner conceded by Daley Blind. The great Cristiano Ronaldo making his way fast to reach the perfect spot for the headed goal defeating Ajax goalkeeper Onana sending the ball in the bottom right corner. The assist is by midfielder Miralem Pjanic. This is the 126th goal in Champions League by Cristiano.

Oh no! Ajax equalizing for the 1-1 in the 34th minute. Donny van de Beek defeating Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny with a right footed shot in the bottom right corner. The assist is by Hakim Ziyech.

Here is JUVENTUS official starting lineup – formation by Coach Massimiliano Allegri:

Juventus (4-3-3): Szczesny; De Sciglio, Bonucci, Rugani, Alex Sandro; Emre Can, Pjanic, Matuidi; Bernardeschi, Dybala, Ronaldo.

Here is AJAX official starting lineup – formation by Coach Ten Hag:

Ajax (4-3-3): Onana; Mazraoui, De Ligt, Blind, Veltman; Van De Beek, Schone, De Jong; Ziyech, Tadic, Neres.

2018-2019 Serie A Week 32 Results / Thirty-second Round on Saturday 13, Sunday 14, and Monday 15 April 2019

Hello, my friends. Here are the 2018-2019 Serie A Week 32 Results / Thirty-second Round on Saturday 13, Sunday 14, and Monday 15 April 2019.

Here is the current situation. Juventus is the sole leader of the Serie A with 84 points and a positive goal difference of +43.  The news is that Juventus lost their second game this season.  Yep, surprise, surprise, surprise….. SPAL making history after defeating Juventus at the Paolo Mazza Stadium.    We might say this is an unexpected result because most were waiting to see Juventus celebrating winning their eighth consecutive Scudetto.  SPAL, are dreaming and you bet this victory could be the most important.    The last time SPAL defeated Juventus was on February 10, 1957!!!!!  BAM!  The hero for SPAL is forward Sergio Floccari scoring the winner goal in the 84th minute for the final 2-1.

Well, mathematically speaking, Juventtus needed just one point  to be declared as winners of the 2018-2019 Serie A Scudetto.  Now, Juventus will have to wait another week to claim the Scudetto.  We might argue that this “Juventus B,” was not enough to represent Italy’s champions.  Allegri opted to rest their key players ahead of the Champions League Quarterfinals Second Leg against Ajax next Tuesday 16 April  at the Allianz Stadium.

Serie A tickets

AC Milan claiming an important home victory at the San Siro Stadium to claim all 3 points.  AC Milan defeating Lazio after Franck Kessié converted a penalty in the 79th minute.  It was a direct duel between Milan and Lazio battling for the 4th position.

Roma defeated Udinese at the Olimpico Stadium.  Forward Edin Dzeko scoring the only goal of the match and enough to secure the victory.  Bottom line, the battle for the 4th position is still open as Roma reached 54 points being just -1 point below AC Milan.

Torino vs Cagliari ended with a 1-1 draw at the Olimpico Stadium.   Torino with 50 points is in the 7th position while Cagliari with 37 points is in the 12th position.  Torino wasted the chance to claim all 3 points and slow down their race towards the top 6 position.

Fiorentina and Bologna sharing the cake ending with a goalless draw 0-0 at the Artemio Franchi Stadium.  Bologna need to gain points to avoid falling down to the relegation zone.

Inter keeping the third position after defeating Frosinone with a 1-3.   This victory sees Inter reaching 60 points having a +5 points lead over AC Milan with 55 points in the 3rd position.  Problem is for Frosinone because the defeat keeps them in the bottom relegation zone.  Frosinone is in the 19th position with 23 points and a negative goal difference of -33.  It means the dream to remain in the Serie A is disappearing.

NO TO RACISM. Moise Kean suffering racial abuse during game against Cagliari.

It’s just incredible that in 2019 we are still seeing racism abuse during a football game. It’s suppose to be a game and celebrate the beauty of a football game. I was so disappointed to see how some Cagliari fans at the Sardegna Arena expressed racial abuse against 19-years old Moise Kean on Tuesday 2 April 2019 during the Serie A Week 30 game Cagliari 0 – 2 Juventus.

Kean is a young footballer, born in Vercelli, Italy to Ivorian parents, and is doing what he likes “playing football.” Kean is a youngster full of dreams and is not right that some fans direct racism abuse including monkey chants just for the color of his skin.  There is no space for racism.

I do agree with Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini that Moise Kean did nothing wrong by celebrating a goal.  Here is what Kean did. He stood next to the post with his arms spread wide, after scoring for Juventus victory 2-0.   My position is “NO TO RACISM, period.”
@MoiseKean.

Bottom line, Kean is a promising Italian footballer who also plays for the Italian National team.  Kean scored his first goal with Italy on March 23, 2019 against Finland in the  UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying match. Italy 2 – 0 Finland.   Amazing, Kean became the youngest player to start a match for Italy since Edoardo Mariani in 1912 and also the youngest to score since 1958.  Surely, NO TO RACISM.   Forza Moise Kean.
