Italian Soccer Serie A

Hello, my friends. Here are the 2019-2020 Serie A Week 21 PREVIEW / Twenty-first Round on Friday 24, Saturday 25, Sunday 26 January 2020.

One thing is for sure.  The leadership will remain the same.  Juventus keeping the 1st position reaching 51 points after defeating Parma with a 2-1 score.  Juventus have  a +4 points lead over Inter with 47 points in the second position after their 1-1 draw with Lecce at the Via del Mare Stadium.  Juventus will face Napoli at the San Paolo Stadium while Inter will face Cagliari at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium.

The Derby della Capitale AS Roma vs Lazio will be a thriller.  Roma and Lazio dueling to claim the bragging rights to rule Rome.  However, the pressure is for Lazio not to slow down their race for the Scudetto having 45 points and a pending game.   We might have a change in the second position in case of Inter losing against Cagliari and Lazio defeating Roma.  In this situation, Lazio would overtake the second position!!!    Lazio in the 3rd position with 45 points and Roma in the 4th position with 38 points.  Win or Lose, Lazio will keep the third position.

👉 Up to Serie A Week 20: There is a three-way race between Juventus (48), Inter (46), and Lazio (45)

⚽️ Serie A Top Scorer up to Week 20:
Lazio forward Ciro Immobile with 23 goals

Italian Soccer Serie A

Hello, my friends. Here is the 2019-2020 Serie A Week 19 PREVIEW / Nineteenth Round on Saturday 11, Sunday 12 and Monday 13 January 2020.

The race for the Scudetto continues neck to neck between Inter and Juventus having both 45 points each.   We might see a change in the leadership or the status quo will remain the same.   Here is the situation.  Inter will keep the first position if they defeat Atalanta at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium.  It will not be an easy task because Atalanta has been conquering points with a superb performance winning the last 2 games with a 5-0 score against Parma and AC Milan.  Atalanta who are also battling in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 will try to cause an upset at the Meazza while Inter is out of the  Champions League.

Juventus might take back the leadership only if Inter is defeated by Atalanta and the combo of Juve defeating AS Roma at the Olimpico Stadium.   Juventus motivated with the leadership of forward Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a hat-trick last week.   Roma were defeated last week by Torino with a 0-2.  The time for redemption is now for the Roman gladiators.

👉 Up to Serie A Week 18: There is a three-way race between Inter (45), Juventus (45), and Lazio (39)

⚽️ Serie A Top Scorer up to Week 18:
Lazio forward Ciro Immobile with 19 goals

Serie A tickets

Cagliari vs AC Milan is one of the most awaited game in this round.  The challenge to see forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic helping AC Milan revive after his transfer from Los Angeles Galaxy.   Ibrahimovic made his debut with Milan last week though failed to score a goal ending the game with a goalless draw against Sampdoria.

Italian Soccer Serie A

Hello, my friends. Here are the 2019-2020 Serie A Week 18 PREVIEW / Eighteenth Round on Sunday 5 and Monday 6 January 2020.   We are back to the Serie A after the break to celebrate Christmas and New Year.   It’s a new decade and all 20 Serie A teams are energized fulled of motivation to change their performance.

The good news is for Lazio returning after the break as winner of the Supercoppa Italiana defeating Juventus in Saudi Arabia on 22 December 2019.   You bet, Juventus will be more than motivated to resume the season after the defeat and focus on their main objective which is to win the UEFA Champions League.

In the meantime, we might have a change in the Serie A leadership.   Inter keeping the first position reaching 42 points and a positive goal difference of +22. Inter crushed Genoa at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium with a 4-0.  Juventus also with 42 points share the same points with Inter. However, Juventus is in the second position because they have a lower goal difference of +14.    Simply put, Inter will keep the first position if they defeat Napoli at the San Paolo Stadium.  In case of Inter losing, Juventus might take back the first position if they defeat Cagliari at the Allianz Stadium.

👉 Up to Serie A Week 17: There is a three-way race between Inter (42), Juventus (42), and Lazio (36)

⚽️ Serie A Top Scorer up to Week 17:
Lazio forward Ciro Immobile with 17 goals

Serie A tickets

AC Milan is highly motivated after signing the great Zlatan Ibrahimovic with the dream to revive AC Milan.   Last game, Atalanta humiliated AC Milan at the Atleti Azzurri D’Italia Stadium with a mega goleada 5-0!!!!  Now, it’s time to archive the bad experience and dream big.

Genoa with new coach Davide Nicola replacing Thiago Motta will look to win his debut game against Sassuolo.   Genoa is in the 20th position and dreaming with salvation must become a reality or face relegation next season.

The status quo in the leadership might change in this round. Inter is in the first position  with 38 points.  The bad news that must be archived is the elimination of Inter out of the UEFA Champions League after losing the game against Barcelona.  Inter will have to put all their energies in the Serie A battling for the Scudetto.  Inter will play the away game against Fiorentina at the Artemio Franchi Stadium  on Sunday 15 December.

Juventus with 36 points in the second position might take the first position only if Inter lose the game against Fiorentina and Juventus defeat Udinese at the Allianz  Stadium.  Juventus with an added boost after qualifying to the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 and looking forward for the Supercoppa Italiana against Lazio in Saudi Arabia on 22 December.

We have the debut of new Napoli Coach Gennaro Gattuso replacing Coach Carlo Ancelottti on 11 December.  Gattuso will make his debut in the home game Napoli vs Parma on Saturday 14 December.   Napoli will have to increase their speed to climb the Serie A Standing being in the 7th position with 21 points compared to Inter with 38 points in the first position.   The good news is that Napoli qualified to the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 while Inter is out of the Champions League.
