Juventus moved three points clear at the top of the table after Roma suffered a 2-0 loss away at the Stadio San Paolo. Lazio continued their impressive winning run while both the Milan clubs suffered embarrassing defeats. Napoli stun Roma in Derby Del Sole Napoli recorded a comfortable 2-0 win over league leaders AS Roma at the Stadio San Paolo on Saturday afternoon. An early goal in the first half from Gonzalo Higuan set them on their way, before Jose Callejon put the game beyond Romaai??i??s reach in the 84th minute. Napoli had the ball in the back of the net in the first minute when Faouzi Ghoulamai??i??s cross was diverted into his own net by Roma goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis but it was correctly ruled out for offside. But just a minute later Gli Azzurri did take the lead when Gonzalo Higuan got on the end of a deflected Lorenzo Insigne shot to score acrobatically. Constant pressing in the […]

Arsenal v Anderlecht Emirates Stadium, London 4 November 2014, 20:45 GMT *** In group D, Arsenal and Anderlecht gear up for their fourth Champions League game, which will be played in London at the Emirates. Arsenal have been in good form recently, having won the reverse fixture in Belgium and also a 3-0 victory over Burnley at the weekend. Wengerai??i??s men will be aiming for nothing short of a victory as the Gunners will progress to the knockout stages if they win the game. If Arsenal should win, it will be their third consecutive win in the tournament and will help them pile pressure on group leaders Borussia Dortmund. Anderlecht gave Arsenal a tough time when the two teams met in Belgium. Anderlecht were on the verge of victory until late strikes from Kieran Gibbs and Podolski spoiled the party for the Belgian club. The club has been in great form domestically and are at the top of Jupiler League […]

Matchday 10 in the Bundesliga saw last seasonai??i??s top two clash at the Allianz Arena, while second-placed Gladbach took on fourth-placed Hoffenheim. Borussia Dortmund Push Bayern in ai???Der Klassikerai??? Borussia Dortmund are now in 17th place, 17 points behind Bayern Munich, with 18 fewer points than they had at this point last season (when they were only one point behind the champions). Last time they were this far down in the table at this point, they wound up relegated. But the team that lost to Bayern on Saturday put on such a classy performance, particularly in the first half, that those statistics are hard to believe. Klopp got his tactics exactly right, deploying Sebastian Kehl and Sven Bender together in midfield instead of the newly returned Ilkay GA?ndogan. These two, more defensively minded than the passmaster, had silenced Xabi Alonso in the Champions League ties against his former club Real Madrid, and they did so again here. Shinji Kagawa had […]

Manchester City Ai??v Manchester United Etihad Stadium, Manchester Sunday, 1st November 2014; 1330 GMT ***** The first instalment of the Manchester derby takes place at The Etihad on Sunday and it is sure to be a keenly contested affair with both sides yet to get their season beyond the 3rd gear. Manchester City have stuttered off late and there is the familiar arrogant look amongst their players. Not the kind of arrogant which sees you brush aside opponents but the kind where you show up in games and just expect to win them. They were plagued by a similar problem when defending their title in 2012-13 and it remains to be seen whether Manuel Pellegrini can force his players out of their current state of reverie. On the other hand, Manchester United have made their worst start to a Premier League season collecting just 13 points from a possible 27. They have been plagued by defensive frailties all season with […]
