Roma are still the beautiful (and lucky) queen that are killing Serie A. Without Totti and Gervinho, the Giallorossi won again. They did it suffering against a good Udinese that got back to lose at home after 22 matches. Luis Muriel, Colombian forward, was overwhelming but the Giallorossi did not concede any goal. They played in ten men for the entire second half (red card for Maicon) and achieved the expected result with Michael Bradley, USA midfielder. Supporters crowded Fiumicino Airport. A sanguine Totti wrote on his website: "We have got balls!".
Antonio Conte, Juventus coach, declared: "Giallorossi are obscuring Juve and Napoli too". The Partenopei and the Bianconeri kept on doing their duty beating Torino and Genoa with the same result (2-0) and with controversial refereeing decisions. In San Paolo's match Higuaín scored two penalties. Mertens and Insigne desperately seek a goal, but grow match by match and represent a further surplus value that Benitez will be able to manage brightly. Juve repressed Genoa with Vidal (penalty) and Tévez. The Grifone don't win in Torino against Juve since 1991. Buffon was inactive all along the match. On the other side, Matteo Perin, Genoa goalkeeper, hit the headlines and got a letter of recommendation by Buffon with a great performance.
Fiorentina got the second consecutive victory beating Chievo (1-2). The Viola turned the situation with an uncontrollable Juan Cuadrado, who scored a double. Montella shares the fifth position with Mazzarri's Inter that defeated H. Verona in Saturday night match (4-2).
In the name of Miro. We could not define in another way the fourth victory of Lazio. The Biancocelesti got back to win (2-0 to Cagliari) after one month thanks to Klose, evergreen striker, who, replacing Anderson in the second half, in ten minutes scored with a header and obtained a penalty that Antonio Candreva did not miss. Petkovic and Lazio supporters can smile after a hard period and the poor performance in Europa League against Apollon Nicosia. A healthy Klose, for the Biancocelesti, can be a the best remedy.
A schizophrenic Milan lost at Parma (3-2). Parolo opened the scoring for the Ducali. Cassano doubled the lead. In the second half, Matri and Silvestre equalized. Kakà played a good match but missed the potential 2-3. In 94', again Parolo, with a free-kick, allowed Parma to regain the lead for good.
Other results. Sampdoria won at Marassi after months (1-0 to Atalanta). Bologna and Livorno remember Pier Mario Morosini. The football player who suffered a fatal cardiac arrest on the pitch (2012) during Pescara-Livorno, played for Bologna too. The Rossoblu got the first three points of the season (1-0). Livorno lost its fourth consecutive match. Catania, the worst attack in Serie A, and Sassuolo, the worst defense, equalize 0-0.
We must file rapidly this Sunday. The tenth match-day is coming soon. Tomorrow night, Nerazzurri versus Nerazzurri. Inter will visit Atalanta. The big match, on Wednesday, will see Fiorentina face Napoli at Franchi Stadium. Chievo (4 points until now) will visit the Giallorossi at Olimpico. Supporters don't want to stop dreaming. Rudi Garcia is on the same opinion.
