Serie A 2012/13, match week 6 what is worth to see

Happiness

The next match week, the one which starts tomorrow is the most interesting so far and by far. First of all there is the mother of all the rivalry and of the arguments in the Serie A, the terrific Juventus – AS Roma.

09/29/12
Parma AC Milan 18:00
Juventus Roma 20:45
09/30/12
Inter Milan Fiorentina 20:45
Tomorrow there are two good matches, Parma is a team well-trained by Donadoni and AC Milan is still now in trouble, whatever its management says. The Parma’s manager, I’m sure, will put up a tough match for his former team (as a player), there is the question about the third match in 7 days and how a little club like Parma will face it, but that’s true for every team on the pitch. At 20,45 the big match, between two teams that really hate each other, Zeman during the 90s show at the world of football that Juventus were doping its players (Vialli, Ferrara, Del Piero, etc); that was a shock, later the magistrature found that the Juventus was up to no good, but at that time doping was not a serious crime and the prescription saved its management, still today Juventus is angry for that scandal, and obviously not with the former president, or the doctors, or every one else, no, with Zeman who make the scandal explode…that’s Italy.
Anyway Juventus is the favourite to get the 3 points tomorrow, but Roma is like his manager absolutely unpredictable and tomorrow could really happen anything.
Next day there is only one interesting match, the last one between Inter and Fiorentina, the Tuscany team has made since now a great championship, they’re a real surprise, good players and a good manager, but I think that on Sunday they’ll pay the effort to try to beat Juventus on Wednesday, so in my opinion Inter with a larger number of skilled players is the favourite.

Siena

The 4th match week of the 2012/13 Serie A is starting this afternoon, a week full of events, let’s sum them up shortly, 2 draws in Uefa Champions League, 1 victory and 3 draws in Uefa Europa League, while the result of FC Juventus, SS Napoli and in a certain way SS Lazio are good achievement, the others are definitely not.

Lazio’ supporter had the most from their journey to London by shouting insults at Tottenham’s players, and triggering an investigation by the Uefa for racism, that I really hope will produce serious consequences for their team. But this week the Nobel prize for supporter of the week goes to Napoli ones who assaulted Swedish fans in a Napoli restaurant, unfortunately they are (or were) all supporters of the Italian team travelling to Italy to support their idols. Good job Napoli! Go ahead! Ah, by the way Lazio player Mauri, is under investigation by Swiss and Italian authorities for money laundering and tax fraud; but that’s a no-news in the Italian football. Milan’s manager Allegri has argued in public with the former striker Filippo Inzaghi, the fact that they have to publish a photo to deny it, it’s the definitive evidence. Cagliari a Serie A team still doesn’t have a stadium where play football, this year they moved from the city of Cagliari to the near Is Arenas, but unfortunately the local stadium doesn’t respect the safety rules, so they can play but without audience until the work on the stadium itself will be finished. What a ridiculous club…
This match week we have some interesting matches, my favourite one is Catania-Napoli, it’s a weird choice as “big match”, but both are teams full of talents and with ambitions, so I forecast a good match. Another interesting one is Udinese-Milan but just because it’s always interesting to see to sides in strong difficulties fight to survive, especially AC Milan, perhaps Allegri will argue with someone else…Parma-Fiorentina today and Lazio-Genoa tomorrow should guarantee emotions and hopefully a certain amount of goals. The other matches seem to be nothing special, Juventus plays in Verona against Chievo and, Roma goes to Cagliari. This match could be an interesting one but playing without supporters, in an empty stadium is something ridiculous, and a really sad show, so watch it but only if you’re a fan of one of the teams.

Serie A 2012/13, match week 3 what is worth to see

Old glory

Fortunately is again time for the Serie A, this Saturday we do not have big matches in program:

Palermo-Cagliari is interesting just because we want to see whether Sannino (Palermo manager) will be fired, he has already lost the first two matches and his employer Mr Zamparini has just been listed on The Guinness of Records because it seems that is the man with less patience on the whole planet…

Milan-Atalanta is not exactly a big match, the Rossoneri have a big advantage and even if Atalanta is a good team I do not thing they will manage to get some point.

Tomorrow the most interesting match will be Fiorentina-Catania, Montella (Fiorentina’s manager) will face is former team, both have very skilled players, ambitious management and could play very well, so in my opinion if you have some spare time tomorrow at 3PM (Italian time zone), that’s a good way to spend it.

Less interesting the last match between Torino and Internazionale (20.45), too wide is the difference between the two sides, and the willingness of catching a victory after the defeat against Roma should push the Neroazzurri to the three points.

  • Today:
    Palermo Cagliari 18:00
    AC Milan Atalanta 20:45
