Hello, my friends. Here are the 2018-2019 Serie A Week 29 Results / Twenty-ninth Round on Friday 29, Saturday 30, and Sunday 31 March 2019.
Here is the current situation. Juventus is still the sole leader of the Serie A with 78 points and a positive goal difference of +41. Juventus defeated Empoli at the Allianz Stadium with a 1-0. Juventus will now prepare for the Champions League Quarterfinals against Ajax. The question is whether forward Cristiano Ronaldo will recover to play in this game or will skip the match for the return game. Truth is that Juventusis under pressure not only to recover Cristiano Ronaldo, but also forward Paulo Dybala who had a thigh injury during the warmup before the match! For the moment, Juventus gaining confidence because young 18-years old Moise Kean is responding with goals. Kean scored the only goal of the match in the 72nd minute.
A blow is for AC Milan suffering the away game against Sampdoria at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium. It’s a step back for AC Milan who are looking to grab at least the third position. Milan remains in the 4th position with 51 points and a positive goal difference of +16.
Inter failing to extend the gap to keep the 3rd position if they defeat Lazio. The Icardi saga continues as Coach Luciano Spalletti did not even included Icardi among the called ups! Inter lost the home game at the Meazza and although they keep the 3rd position with 53 points, they might lose it next week. AC Milan with 51 points is only -2 points below Inter.
Cagliari claiming 3 important points after defeating Chievo Verona at the Marc’Antonio Bentegodi Stadium with a 0-3. Chievo is still in the last position of the Serie A and most likely returning to the Serie B next season. Chievo winning only 1 game, 11 draws, and losing 17 games!
Udinese defeated Genoa at the Friuli Stadium with a 2-0 score.
Another flop in this round is for AS Roma. Yep. Roma losing the home game, practically, humiliated by Napoli with a poker 1-4. Roma not only lost the game, but also lost the 5th position.
Fiorentina failing to win the home game at the Artemio Franchi Stadium. The game ended with a draw Fiorentina 1 – 1 Torino. The gap between Fiorentina and Torino is huge. Torino reaching 45 points in the 9th position while Fiorentina only 38 points in the 10th position. It seems Fiorentina dream to be among the top 6 teams is disappearing.
Good news is for Bologna. There is a light at the end of the tunnel for Bologna after defeating Sassuolo wih a 2-1 at the Renato Dall’Ara Stadium. Bologna finally escaping from the relegation zone jumping from the 18th to the 17th position. The dream for salvation now with a big chance to become a reality.
