Hello my friends. Here are the 2018-2019 Serie A Week 19 Results / Nineteenth Round on Saturday 29 December 2018.

The verdict is here.  Juventus ending the 2018 as the sole leader of the Serie A and will start the 2019 as the “Commander in Chief of the Serie A”.   Here is the situation.  Juventus winning 17 games and 2 draws this season.    Juventus closing 2018 on a high note with a home victory at the Allianz Stadium defeating Sampdoria with a 2-1.   Cristiano scoring the two goals and Quagliarella  for Sampdoria.

Super  2018 celebration  is  high for Juventus because forward Cristiano Ronaldo ended as Top Scorer  with 15 goals and 5 assists.   Second top scorer is Genoa player Krzysztof Piatek with 13 goals and no assists.    The positive note for Sampdoria is seeing forward Fabio Quagliarella as the top 3 scorer with  12 goals and 5 assists which means he is -3 goals below Cristiano Ronaldo.   You bet 2019  race for the Top scorer will be a thriller.   My bet?  Of course, I am rooting for Cristiano Ronaldo.

The business in the relegation zone is quite the same.  Good news is for Chievo Verona seeing the light at the end of the tunnel battling for salvation.  Chievo defeated Frosinone at the Marc’Antonio Bentegodi Stadium with a 1-0.  This is an important victory because it is Chievo’s first win this season.  Yep.  You bet it is an added boost for the morale of the team.

Hello my friends. Here are the 2018-2019 Serie A Week 17 Results / Sixteenth Round on Saturday 22 December 2018.

Juventus will celebrate Christmas being the sole leadership of the Serie A keeping a wide advantage.     Juventus winning 16 games and 1 draw this season.   The duel between Juventus and AS Roma ended in favor of Juventus with a 1 – 0 thanks to the goal by forward Mario Mandzukic.  The cry for help is for Roma down in the 9th position far away from the “European zone.”

A flop is for AC Milan unable to revive to their “glorious past.”   AC Milan losing the home game at the San Siro Stadium against Fiorentina.  It’s a team living in a shadow.   The golden years are gone and only a “miracle” can bring back those golden moments.  Milan going down from the 4th to the 5th position.

Good news is for Lazio jumping from the 5th to the 4th position after defeating Cagliari at the Olimpico di Roma Stadium.   Lazio reaching 28 points while AC Milan is down -1 point below with 27 points.  Cagliari is in the 14th position with 17 points.

Atalanta suffering a painful defeat at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium, Genoa 3 – 1 Atalanta.  This lost sent Atalanta down from the 6th to the 10th position. OUCH.   Atalanta reaching 24 points.

Chievo Verona stopped Inter at the Marc’Antonio Bentegodi Stadium.  The game ending with a 1-1 draw in the last minute ruining Inter’s hope to claim the victory.    Chievo have not won a single game this season!   Inter reaching 33 points in the 4th position and is -8 points below Napoli in the 3rd position with 41 points.

Another draw is Parma 0 – 0 Bologna at the Ennio Tardini Stadium.  Definitely, it’s a tough situation for Bologna finding themselves in the relegation zone down in the 18th position winning only 2 games, 7 draws, and 8 lost this season.

Hello my friends. Here are the 2018-2019 Serie A Week 15 / Fifteenth Round on Friday 7, Saturday 8, and Sunday 9 December 2018.

The king rules in Italy.  Yes, my friends, the famous Derby d’Italia between Juventus and Inter  had a victorious Juventus reaffirming their dominion in the Serie A.   Juventus defeated Inter at the Allianz Stadium and keep the sole leadership of the Serie A with 43 points.   Juventus reaching 14 wins and 1 draw this season.  You bet this is  a major blow for Inter  falling down on their quest to hold at least the second position.

Surely, Napoli  is setting the tone for a two-way race for the Scudetto.  Napoli crushed Frosinone at the San Paolo Stadium with a mega goleada 4-0.    It is a superb victory for Napoli because not only they  won the game, but also kept a wide advantage over Inter.  Napoli remain in the second position with 35 points  being -8 points below Juventus and +6 points above Inter  with 29 points.

An upset is for AS Roma unable to win the away game at the Sardegna Arena.   Cagliari not giving a chance to Roma and the game ended with a 2-2 draw.  It’s a disappointment for Roma still below the  European zone and desperately in need to gain points to climb the Serie A Standing.

Another draw in this round is Lazio 2 – 2 Sampdoria.   It’s an upset for Lazio   because they needed full 3 points to keep up climbing the Standing and not risking to be out of the European zone.  For the moment, Lazio is safe in the 5th position.

The big blow in this round is for Bologna Coach Filippo Inzaghi.  Yep!  Inzaghi defeated by Empoli at the Carlo Castellani Stadium with a 2-1.  It is just a painful defeat because Inzaghi might risk being sacked.  Ironically, the next game is against his ex-team AC Milan at the Renato Dall’Ara Stadium.

Sassuolo and Fiorentina had to archived an unexpected draw.  The match at the Mapei Stadium ended with a 3-3.  It is not a good result for neither.

AC Milan failing to win the home game at the San Siro Stadium ending with a 0-0 draw against Torino.  It’s a disappointment for Milan because they would have just shorten the distance with Inter with all full 3 points and instead they just got 1 point.  Milan is in the 4th position with 26 points and Inter in the 3rd position with 29 points.  Lazio with 25 points is just 1 point below AC Milan.  Let’s see what happens in the next games…..
