Week 3 of Serie A

0

Week 3 of the Serie A should be eventful and much more exciting than last week’s fixtures. Week 2 already provided two major upsets: the first, AS Roma’s shocking 2-1 defeat against Cagliari at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome; and Palermo’s 4-3 come-from-behind win at the Renzo Barbera to give Internazionale FC their first defeat of the season.

This week we have three key matches. The first, it will be the battle between 2 of the main Scudetto contenders seeking a first win, AS Roma heads to Milan to battle Internazionale FC. The Giallorossi are up against the Nerazzurri side, who suffered a surprising second consecutive loss of the 2011-2012 season to Trabzonspor (Turkey) in the Champions League.  There is doubt amongst the Inter FC faithful and many are questioning whether Gian Piero Gasperini is the right man for the Nerazzurri.

Italian champions, AC Milan, will travel to the San Paolo to face SSC Napoli. This may prove to be the biggest match of Week 3. The Rossoneri, also searching for their first win of the season, are coming off 2 back-to-back ties against SS Lazio last weekend and against Barcelona FC in the Champions League. The Partenopei disposed of Cesena 3-1 and tied Manchester City 1-1 in midweek action. It will be a difficult matchup for the Milanisti considering the injuries sustained by Zlatan Ibrahimivic, Robinho, Boetang, Massimo Ambrosini, and Phillippe Mexes who are all out of the line up.

The last 2 key games: Udinese v Fiorentina. Both teams are off to a great start in Serie A recording wins in Week 2. Lastly, Siena v Juventus. La Vecchia Signora appointed head coach, Antonio Conte, who will be up against his former team he helped earn their spot in Serie A.
