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…..
