SATO Serie A Matches of The Week (Oct. 16)

AC Milan-AS Roma

Scheduled as the last game played this weekend, this match against two of the greatest Serie A squads makes the top of our list.  It is a classic battle of one team that is quickly rising and the other is quickly falling.  Leonardo’s squad needs to secure at least a draw to stay within the middle of the Serie A table and Roma looks to keep the win streak alive. 


Injury plagued Juventus will host Fiorentina in a match that will likely showcase two top four squads by year’s end.  Both clubs are currently tied for third place with 14 points and a victory could statistically get the winner of this match into first place if both Inter and Sampdoria lose.  But this match is huge because it could make all the difference at season’s end in the league table.


Inter is still in first place in Serie A for now, but the squad needs to show fans of the most beautiful game that they can consistently stay a top the league table.  Genoa is off to a strong start and currently sit in fifth place just a point back from the squads in the previous match.  If Genoa can achieve a draw then they could become a top five team.  Seal a victory though and they could become a top three team.


Lazio had a hot start, but have been cooling off lately and now sit in the middle of the table.  Sampdoria has been the surprise squad all season long.  Can the brilliant run continue?  Recent trends would say yes they can.
