AS ROMA v AC MILAN Stadio Olimpico, Rome Saturday 9th Jan, 2016, 19:45 GMT *** Roma and AC Milan meet on Saturday in Rome, and with the recent results showing no signs of improvement for either clubs, this game could well be decisive for the future of the respective managers Rudi Garcia and Sinisa Mihajlovic. The anger of the fans of both the clubs have reached a boiling point and all these factors make this game a must win for both. Milan president Silvio Berlusconi is reportedly furious with their 1-0 defeat to Bologna at San Siro, and is ready to sack Mihajlovic if things don’t improve quickly. Milan are in seventh place and 10 points off the Champions League after 18 games. Berlusconi is livid because after spending €80m in the summer, the club are still plagued with the same problems they had a year ago. Reports believe that Mihajlovic must turn things around against Roma on Saturday to […]

JUVENTUS v TORINO Juventus Stadium, Turin Saturday 31st Oct, 2015, 20:45 GMT  *** The season went from bad to worse for reigning champions Juventus as they went down 1-0 against Sassuolo on Wednesday evening. Already 11 points behind league leaders Roma, the Bianconeri should realistically give up their goal of a fifth consecutive Scudetto and focus on qualifying for the Champions league next season even though it seems a difficult task already after just 10 games. A team that dominated and controlled games with discipline and efficiency have officially gone missing now. While tactical understanding seems like an impossible dream now, the team is failing to perform simple tasks like stringing two proper passes together, maintaining possession and keeping shots on target. Max Allegri’s team selections have raised a few eyebrows as his decision to rest experienced German international Sami Khedira on Wednesday was surprising to say the least with Claudio Marchisio down with flu. Rotation is no doubt required in […]

INTER MILAN v FIORENTINA Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan Sunday 27th September, 2015, 19:45 GMT *** Serie A leaders Inter aiming to make it six wins on the spin when they host nearest rivals Fiorentina on Sunday. After five victories in five matches, Inter host second-placed Fiorentina in what is already a crucial match in this year’s Serie A calendar. Inter are currently enjoying their best start to a league campaign since 1966, however, on Sunday they will face a rejuvenated Viola squad. It will be the first of many tests for Roberto Mancini’s men. The Nerazzurri have enjoyed a relatively smooth start to the season and they have taken full advantage of the fixtures to date, winning all five games while conceding just one goal. Inter’s early success has not been built on goals scored. Instead, they have relied on a watertight defence that has conceded only once in Serie A so far. Fiorentina, meanwhile, have hardly been leaking goals […]
