New Canadian Serie A site

Posted on May 7, 2008. Filed under: serie a | Tags: , |

Just a quick post to highlight a recently launched Canadian soccer site. It focuses on Serie A but also on the upcoming Euro 2008 competition, Toronto FC and the Canadian national side. I’m always glad to see sites that focus on Serie A as it’s my favourite league. There’s some good content already and I’d expect it to grow rapidly!

Check it out at www.serieasoccer.com.

Best of Serie A – Round 28

Posted on March 17, 2008. Filed under: serie a, Video | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Just some quick video highlights of the best action from this round.

I personally found the best match by far this week between Fiorentina and Genoa. Not that Genoa put up much of a fight but the Viola just played so well. It marked the return of Adrian Mutu and he wasted no time picking up where he left off. A brilliant assist for the first goal and an incredible power drive for the second. Enjoy below.

Inter did enough to get back to winning after a terrible champions league exit. They defeated Palermo 2-1 and the first goal saw Vieira and Ibrahimovic combine well and then Jimenez wrapped things up.

Roma came from behind to defeat Milan. Although Kaka’s goal was easy on the eyes, they left themselves open yet again and gave a crucial game away.

For a more in depth wrap of all the action, check out my latest post at footy-boots.

Fiorentina came from behind in the dying minutes to snatch full points of Juventus and defeated them 3-2 in the 3rd vs 4th place battle. Fiorentina are now only one point behind them. See the highlights below.

Roma defeated Parma in style, 4-0. The win sees them just 6 points off league-leaders Inter after the nerazzuri had their 31 game undefeated streak stopped by Napoli, a 1-0 loss on the trot. More quality highlights below.

Inter vs Juventus

Posted on November 3, 2007. Filed under: Inter, serie a | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

The other big match up this weekend (apart from Arsenal vs Manchester United) is the battle between Inter and Juventus! Although Roma is sitting in second spot, one place above Juventus, they are only one point behind. The Inter-Juve games have always been fierce and highly anticipated affairs and this is an especially important match. This is the first time the two teams have faced each other in a league match for almost a couple of years. Juventus is keen to reassert itself as a serie A powerhouse while Inter will want to prove that the last two scudettos were earned through a great team and not by default as many claim.

Both teams are certainly different from the last time they met. Juve has restructured and had to let some players leave while they pulled themselves out of serie B. While Inter has made some important buys over the last couple of years, a couple such as Ibrahimovic and Viera from Juve, allowing them to build a squad with much depth. Look at their line up of strikers for proof of that!

Inter are coming off the back of a 4-1 win over Genoa, a win where Ibrahimovic and Samuel were rested to not risk then picking up yellow cards as that would mean their suspension for the big game. Also Julio Cesar and Toldo were injured and the 3rd keeper had to be fielded. Suazo also scored his first goal for Inter, which will hopefully be the start of many more to come (another Adriano would be hard to take!). So Inter is still unbeaten after 10 games while Juve have lost a couple, drawn a couple and won the rest.

Traveling to Turin means the crowd won’t make it easy on Inter and the Adriano saga might have lowered the moral of the team a bit (He wasn’t happy about being subbed during a previous match and now isn’t even on the squad list for the Champions League group stages). Although that may be getting blown up as much more than it was, apparently he’s been doing really well at training.

Lippi has come out to say that Juve could take the scudetto, even though he admits Inter is the strongest team. He also conceded that it could go either way. Whatever happens, you can bet Juve will continue to fight all the way and this is going to be a tough match for both sides.

Inter vs Napoli

Posted on October 8, 2007. Filed under: Inter, Video | Tags: , |

Inter were able to retain the top spot of serie A after defeating Napoli 2-1.

This time it wasn’t Ibrahimovic grabbing a brace, it was in fact Cruz who put two away. One thanks to Ibrahimovic who did the hard work to allow Cruz a simple tap in on 19 minutes. While the second goal was a well timed pass and run for Cruz to chest down and blast past the keeper under some pressure at the 35 minute mark. Napoli were able to pull one back on the 39th minute in the second half but it wasn’t enough to ensure any points.

Will Inter’s domination of the league continue again or has AC Milan found it’s feat again after drubbing Lazio 5-1? Perhaps Juventus or Roma will still be able to put together a serious challenge for the title. Anyways, enjoy the highlights…
