Hello my friends. How are you doing?  The Champions League and Europa League games are done. It’s time to get back to the Serie A.   Here is the 2018-2019 Serie A Week 5 Preview for the Fifth Round on Friday 21, Saturday 22, and Sunday 23 September 2018.

The challenge is for the “19 rest of the Serie A teams” to follow Juventus!  Yes, my friends, Juventus is the only team winning all their 4 games having full 12 points.    Motivation is high for Juventus after winning the Champions League match despite Cristiano Ronaldo getting a red card.   The race is on to continue as sole leader of the Serie A and you bet the objective for Juventus is to defeat Frosinone.

A super victory for Sassuolo overturning the result to claim the victory.  Empoli succumbed after the fast goal not even a minute from starting the game.

Amazing, Empoli started the match super charged by scoring the first goal in less than a minute. Yep, it is Francesco Caputo to defeat Sassuolo goalkeeper Andrea Consigli with a right footed shot in the bottom left corner.

Sassuolo equalizing for the 1-1 in the 13th minute. It is Kevin-Prince Boateng to defeat Empoli goalkeeper Pietro Terracciano with a right footed shot in the center. The assist is by Federico Di Francesco.

Sassuolo making a comeback in the 57th minute by taking the lead with a 2-1. It is Gianmarco Ferrari to score with a headed shot in the high center. The headed assist is by Federico Di Francesco following a corner conceded by Domenico Maietta.

The situation is complicating for Empoli because Referee gives a red card to Miha Zajc for a diving…… Empoli remaining with 10 players.

Say no more. Sassuolo taking full control of the match in the 85th minute for the 3-1. It is Federico Di Francesco to rock the party at the Mapei stadium delivering from close range a right footed shot to the bottom left corner. The assist is by Pol Lirola.

Here is SASSUOLO official starting lineup – formation by Coach Roberto De Zerbi:

SASSUOLO (4-3-3): Consigli; Lirola, Marlon, Ferrari, Rogerio; Duncan, Locatelli, Sensi; Berardi, Boateng, Di Francesco

Hello my friends. How are you doing? The Serie A is back after the international break. Here is the 2018-2019 Serie A Week 4 RESULTS for the Fourth Round on Saturday 15, Sunday 16, and Monday 17 September 2018.

Party is on!  Cristiano Ronaldo scoring his first goal in the Serie A with Juventus after transferring from Real Madrid.  Juventus defeated Sassuolo with 2-1.  The two goals by Cristiano and the party at the Allianz Stadium is on with the classic shout SSSSSIIIIIUUUUUUUUUU!    Juventus is the only team winning all four games to collect all 12 points leading the Serie A as the sole leader.   Sassuolo losing the 2nd position and stepping down to the 3rd position.

We have a big flop in this round.   Inter losing the home game at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium against newly promoted from Serie B team “Parma.”  Yes,  it is a tough blow for Inter seeing their objective to be among the Champions League zone getting complicated.  Of course, it is still too early, and Inter might react in the upcoming games.  Will they?

Serie A tickets

One mega goleada is that of Sampdoria crushing Frosinone at the Matusa Stadium with an astonishing 0-5 score!!!!!

Napoli back to the winning path after defeating Fiorentina thanks to the goal of forward Lorenzo Insigne to claim the 3 points.
