The leadership remain the same with AC Milan being the sole leader of the Serie A after defeating Cagliari at the Sardegna Arena.  AC Milan reaching 43 points followed by Inter in the 2nd position with 40 points.   The hero for Milan is forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring the two goals for the Rossoneri taking the team by the hand towards the Scudetto.

The awaited Derby d’Italia between Inter and Juventus at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium is won by Inter!. The duel Romelu Lukaku vs Cristiano Ronaldo did not exists. The goals for Inter were scored by the ex-Juventus player Arturo Vidal in the 13th minute and Nicolò Barella in the 52nd minute. Certainly, this is a super victory for Inter Coach Antonio Conte reaching 40 points.  Juventus went down from the 4th to the 5th position.  The last time Inter defeated Juventus in Serie A with a 2-0 was in April 2010.

Lazio with a sprint race to climb the Serie A Standing defeating AS Roma in the Serie A Week 18 game “Derby della Capitale” on Friday 15 January at the Olimpico di Roma Stadium in Rome.  Lazio shortening the distance reaching 31 points to be -3 points below Roma. It is an important home victory for Lazio because they claimed the full bragging rights to rule in Rome! What a slap for Roma not even being able to score an honor goal. This is the first time that the Derby is being played on a Friday.

Torino failing big time to win the Serie A Week 18 against Spezia game on Saturday 16 January at the Olimpico Torino Stadium in Turin. This goalless draw might be considered a lost for Torino considering they were playing against a 10-men squad since the 8th minute when Referee Fabbri sent off Luca Vignali upgrading his yellow card to a red card. Clearly, Torino are just desperately crying out for help as they remain in the relegation zone and not showing a convincing performance this season.  Torino, despite having 66% ball possession, failed to score a goal. Spezia with 34% and with 10 players resisted.  Simply put, Spezia, promoted from the Serie B, are doing a better job.

Udinese with a step back after taking the lead against Sampdoria in the 57th minute with Rodrigo de Paul.  Sampdoria making a comeback to claim the victory with a 2-1.   Antonio Candreva equalizing for the 1-1 after converting a penalty in the 67th minute.  The penalty conceded by Rolando Mandragora after a foul on Candreva.  Surely, a positive debut by forward Ernesto Torregrossa scoring the winner goal for the 2-1 in the 81st minute.   The Udinese crisis is alarming seeing them without a win in seven games!

Bologna claiming a home victory at the Renato dall’Ara Stadium defeating Hellas Verona.  Bologna win with a 1-0.  The goal scored by Ricardo Orsolini converting a penalty with a left footed shot in the bottom right corner.  The penalty was conceded by Marco Silvestri after a foul on Roberto Soriano.  Surely, the victory is a boost for the morale of the team and Coach Siniša Mihajlović.

Oh my gosh!  A thunder, an earthquake, a giant collapse for Fiorentina!!!!  Yep, Napoli just crushed Fiorentina humiliating them with a mega goleada 6-0 at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium!!  Napoli who were heavily criticized for the Covid-19 rumors among players, silenced the critics on the pitch!  It’s a super victory not only for the team, but for Coach Gennaro Gattuso and the City.  The victory helping Napoli climbed above AS Roma reaching 34 points and having better goal difference into third place, Fiorentina are 14th with 18 points. Goals by Lorenzo Insigne with a brace, Diego Demme, Hirving Lozano, Piotr Zielinski and Matteo Politano.  Napoli climbing from the 6th to the 3rd position.  That’s how important this victory is gold!

Atalanta and Genoa ending with a goalless draw at the Gewiss Stadium.  Not a good result for Atalanta having won three consecutive games.   Genoa seeing this away point more like a victory.

The battle of the “Serie B promoted teams” Crotone vs Benevento is won by Crotone! A poker against Benevento with a brace by Simy, Vulic and an own goal from Glik. Surely, an important home victory for Crotone Coach Stroppa and its players defeating Coach Filippo Inzaghi with a 4-1.

Another draw in this round is Sassuolo 1 – 1 Parma.  It is a painful lost for Parma because the 1 point is not enough to rescue them from the relegation zone having only 13 points just like Torino.

Mision accomplished for AC Milan winning the Italian Serie A Week 17 game against Torino on Saturday 9 January at San Siro Stadium.  The victory secures AC Milan the first position reaching 40 points while Torino falling down in the relegation zone in the 18th position with 12 points. Surely, good news for AC Milan archiving their first defeat last week against Juventus ending their 27-game unbeaten record to get back to the winning path.

Benevento suffering a home defeat crushed by Atalanta with a 1-4.    Atalanta gaining momentum to climb towards the top 5 positions.  Atalanta’s hero is Josip Ilicic to be a decisive player increasing their unbeaten league run to seven games reaching 31 points.  Benevento losing precious points and now the task is to return to win to be among the top 10 teams remaining with 21 points.

Genoa with an important home victory defeating Bologna at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium.  It is a boost for the morale of the team with Coach Davide Ballardini.   The victory sees Genoa with 14 points out of the relegation zone in the 17th position.   Bologna in the 12th position with 17 points.

What a slap for Inter.   The big duel with AS Roma ended with a 2-2 draw.  Inter slowing down wasting the chance to keep the -1 point below AC Milan with 40 points in the 1st position.  The draw sees Inter reaching 37 points being now -3 points below!   However, the draw helped Roma with that added punch because with that shared one point they reached 34 points and climbed to the 3rd position.  Roma will play the Derby della Capitale against Lazio next week.

A thriller match was Udinese vs Napoli.  The last minutes intense with Napoli claiming the victory in the 90th minute.  You bet, this away victory is a boost for Napoli grabbing golden 3 points keeping up the race to be among the top 6 teams to be within the European zone.

Parma suffering a home defeat at the Ennio Tardini Stadium defeated by Lazio.  It is a valuable away victory for Lazio claiming the 3 points for the added punch ahead of next week Derby della Capitale on Friday 15 at the Olimpico. Lazio reaching 28 points while Parma remaining with 12 points down in the relegation zone in the 19th position.

Hellas Verona defeating Crotone at the Marc’Antonio Bentegodi Stadium with a 2-1.  The cry for help is loud for Crotone in the last position with only 9 points winning just 2 games this season.  It seems the promotion from the Serie B to Serie A is not working for Crotone.

Fiorentina gaining momentum after defeating Cagliari at the Artemio Franchi Stadium with a 1-0 thanks to the goal by Dusan Vlahovic in the 72nd minute.

Juventus crushing Sassuolo with a 3-1 at the Allianz Stadium.  Sassuolo playing with 10 players since the 45th minute when Pedro Obiang was sent off.  Juventus sealing the victory with forward Cristiano Ronaldo scoring the third goal of the match in the 92nd minute to score his 15th goal this season.  Juventus reaching 33 points being now only -7 points below AC Milan.   Sassuolo went down from the 5th to the 7th position.

The round ending on Monday with the victory of Spezia defeating Sampdoria with a 2-1.  It is a special victory for Spezia because it is the first victory at the home stadium at the Alberto Picco Stadium.  Spezia climbed from the 15th to the 14th position reaching 17 points and being away from the relegation zone.
