SATO Serie A Tuesday Review

I have some bad news for you Serie A fans.  Last weekend might have been the first hint at the beginning of the end to the Serie A season.  Inter has begun their grueling pace of winning matches left and right and the powerhouse squad now has a seven point lead over the rest of the group table.  New boys Livorno would be no match for the squad and Inter would cruise to a 2-0 victory with a Diego Milito (yes he is back ) goal. 

Other powerhouses like Juventus would not have as much luck.  Juve blew a 2-0 lead to Napoli and the result was a frustrating 3-2 loss.  It was especially surprising because Juve allowed more goals then any other Serie A squad last weekend.  Sampdoria could not do much better either.  The squad suffered a draw against Bari’s tough defense.  The final was 0-0. 

AS Roma was able to be on the winning side once again.  The up and down squad handed relegation bound Bologna another loss 2-1.  AC Milan also continued their winning ways with a 2-0 win over Parma.  Milan is now a top four squad and they have nearly erased their terrible start to the year.  Cagliari was able to take advantage of an easy match against Atalanta.  The squad won 3-0 over the fifteenth place team.

As for the rest of the Serie A matches: There were three more draws this weekend.  Chievo Verona and Udinese tied 1-1, Siena and Lazio resulted in a 1-1 match, and Palermo and Genoa could not find the net in a 0-0 final.  The last match of the week Fiorentina was able to handle struggling Catania another loss.  Fiorentina won 3-1 over the nineteenth place squad.
