Hello, my friends. Here are the 2020-2021 Serie A Week 9 RESULTS / Ninth Round on Saturday 28, Sunday 29, and Monday 30 November 2020.

👉 Juventus winner of the 2019-2020 Serie A Scudetto

⚽️ Serie A Top Scorer up to Week 9: (Updated on 29 November)
AC Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic with 10 goals

The sole leader remains AC Milan with a convincing performance.  As established the Lega Serie A, all the Serie A Week 9 games  during the warm-up of the teams, the famous video with Diego Armando Maradona dribbling in the pre-match of a European match against Bayern Munich in 1989 will be broadcast on the big screens of the stadiums, to the music of “Live is life”.  All the players will take the field with a black band on the left arm starting with a minute of silence in memory of  Maradona and stopping in the 10th minute to applaud Maradona.  👉  Diego Armando Maradona Died at 60 years old on November 25, 2020

AC Milan remain the sole leader after winning the Serie A Week 9 against Fiorentina on Sunday 29 November 2020 at the San Siro Stadium in Milan. AC Milan reaching 23 points being +5 points above Inter and Sassuolo with 18 points each. This is an important victory because the Rossoneri boost the morale of the team in the absence of leading force Zlatan Ibrahimovic who was absent due to injury.

Napoli playing an emotional game as they honor the great ex-Napoli player Diego Armando Maradona playing with an Argentina-style shirt as a tribute. Napoli convincingly win the Serie A Week 9 game defeating AS Roma with a poker on Sunday 29 November 2020 at the San Paolo Stadium in Napoli.  The first goal is by Napoli Captain Lorenzo Insigne dedicating the goal to Maradona by running to grab Maradona’s shirt.  Napoli climbing from the 6th to the 5th position while Roma went down from the 5th to the 6th.

Benevento putting a brave front managing to draw the Serie A Week 9 game against Juventus on Saturday 28 November 2020 at the Ciro Vigorito Stadium. It is a draw with a sense of victory for Benevento who were the Serie B Champions facing the giant Juventus current Serie A champions. It seems that Juventus are Cristiano Ronaldo dependent as he stayed home to rest. The positive aspect for Juventus is having Alvaro Morata still scoring in absence of Ronaldo. This was a special game seeing the ex-AC Milan teammates facing each other for the first time as opposite coaches, Filippo Inzaghi for Benevento and Andrea Pirlo for Juventus.

Good news is for Inter climbing from the 5th to the 2nd position after defeating Sassuolo reaching 18 points.  Sassuolo went down from the 2nd to the 3rd position also with 18 points but having lower goal difference than Inter.     Inter making a revival with this convincing victory after their disastrous defeat in the UEFA Champions League at the Meazza Stadium losing 0-2 against Real Madrid. Inter reaching 18 points same like Sassuolo, though, having a better goal difference with +10 compared to Sassuolo +8. Surely, a terrible match for Sassuolo defender Chiriches making an own goal and a much needed victory for Inter. Sassuolo losing their first game this season despite having 65% ball possession.

Atalanta failing to win the Serie A Week 9 against Hellas Verona on Saturday 28 November 2020 at the Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo. Hellas Verona causing the upset by claiming this important away victory to climb the Serie A Standing reaching 15 points being now +1 point above Atalanta remaining with 14 points.

Torino not seeing the way out and ended the home game against Sampdoria with a  1-1 draw.  Torino remain in the relegation zone in the 18th position having only 6 points.  Sampdoria reaching 11 points in the 11th position.

Lazio crumbling at the Olimpio defeated by Udinese with a 1-3.  It’s just chaos for Lazio being out of the top 6 positions.  Lazio with this lost have 11 points and down to the 9th position.  Udinese with this important away victory reaches 10 points climbing to the 13th position.

Serie A Standing BEFORE the game:
Sassuolo, 2nd position with 18 points and a goal difference of +11
Inter, 5th position with 15 points and a positive goal difference of +7

Sassuolo failing to win the Serie A Week 9 home game defeated by Inter on Saturday 28 November 2020 at the Mapei Stadium in Sassuolo, Italy.  Inter making a revival with this convincing victory after their disastrous defeat in the UEFA Champions League at the Meazza Stadium losing 0-2 against Real Madrid. Inter reaching 18 points same like Sassuolo, though, having a better goal difference with +10 compared to Sassuolo +8. Surely, a terrible match for Sassuolo defender Chiriches making an own goal and a much needed victory for Inter.   Sassuolo losing their first game this season despite having 65% ball possession.

The match started paying a tribute to Argentinean Diego Armando Maradona with a minute of silence as indicated by the Lega Serie A.  All the players wearing a black band on the left arm.   👉  Diego Armando Maradona Died at 60 years old on November 25, 2020

Congratulations to Inter midfielder Ivan Perisic playing his 150th game in Serie A.

Inter opening the score in the 4th minute with the South American combo in action! It is Chilean forward Alexis Sánchez to defeat from very close range Sassuolo goalkeeper Andrea Consigli with a right footed shot in the bottom right corner. The assist is by Argentinean forward Lautaro Martínez.

Oopsssss….. Sassuolo conceding an own goal by defender Vlad Chiriches in the 14th minute with Chiriches. What a blow!

Sassuolo is just unrecognizable and unable to react. Inter increasing the score for the 0-3 in the 60th minute. It is Roberto Gagliardini to score with a right footed shot in the bottom left corner. The assist is by Matteo Darmian.

In honor of Argentinean and ex-Napoli player Diego Armando Maradona passing away on Wednesday 25 November 2020, the San Paolo Stadium will be renamed for Maradona.   I think it was just about time for this decision.  Maradona means so much for Napoli as he gave so much joy to the City during his seven years since 1984 when transferring from Barcelona by giving them their first Scudetto and second Scudetto.

Diego Armando Maradona “El Pibe de Oro” died at home on Wednesday 25 November 2020 in Tigre, Buenos Aires, Argentina.   Maradona was born on October 30, 1960 in Lanús, Buenos Aires.  Maradona died from a heart attack less than a month after turning 60 and three weeks after he underwent surgery on a blood clot in his brain. I am so sad, deeply touched by Maradona’s death for what he meant to world football, especially for the City of Napoli when he became a legend conquering 2 Scudetto for Napoli.   My deepest and most sincere condolences to his family.  Thanks Diego, Grazie Diego, Gracias Diego!

Argentina’s President Alberto Fernandez decreed three days of mourning following Maradona’s death.  UEFA announcing there will be a minute’s silence ahead of all the Champions League and Europa League matches this week. Napoli will wear black armbands as they take to the field in the Europa League game against Rijeka at the Stadio San Paolo on Thursday 26 November, the day after Maradona’s death.  The Lega Serie A also will be observing a minute’s silence before every Serie A Week 9 game this weekend November 28-30.
