http://www.corrieredellosport.it/images/17/C_3_Media_743917_immagine_det.jpg
Even though Italians teams faltered in the Champions League earlier in the week, there were still some things to celebrate.  The best way to celebrate is to score a lot and this weekend there were a ton of goals.  In Siena, Super Pippo Inzaghi scored his 300th goal in Milan’s impressive 5-1 road win vs Siena to maintain their 3rd place standing in the table.

Juventus kept Inter in their sights with a 4-1 victory over Bologna as Juve icon Alessandro Del Piero scored twice to help La Vecchia Signora win its 4th straight game and extend their unbeaten streak to 6 matches.

Inter bounced back from midweek Champions League disappointment with a 2-0 home victory over Fiorentina. Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice to knock  I Viola into 5th place. Fiorentina’s result meant that Genoa would move into 4th as they took advantage of Fiorentina’s loss by winning at Cagliari 1-0. Ruben Olivera’s goal in the 85th minute gave Genoa the big win.

  1. When all things are taken into context Roma’s tie with Sampdoria was the most impressive. With up to 13 players injured,absent and suspended (DeRossi,Totti,Aquilani,Juan) to name a few that single point hard earned maybe the difference come seasons end of being in Europe or settling for a uefa cup spot.

    Forza Roma and Spalletti.
