All those that thought that the Serie A wasn’t explosive need to look at Week 32 to see that it is.  Let’s begin with the Derby D’Italia.  Juventus and Inter played to a 1-1 draw in Turin that saw the drama intensify in the 2nd half. Mario Balotelli scored to give Inter the lead in the 64th minute and after Juve’s Tiago was sent off in the 76th minute it seemed as though the Nerazzurri would get the 3 points but questionable substitutions by Jose Mourinho and the insertion of Sebastian Giovinco by Juve coach Claudio Rainieri eventually led to Zdenek Grygera’s goal in the 91st minute and a share of the points.

Juve’s draw makes them winless in their last 3 matches and with Milan’s 5-1 destruction of Torino. Il Rossoneri moved into a 2nd place tie with Juventus.  Pippo Inzaghi scored a hat trick to extend Milan’s unbeaten streak to 6.

Roma improved its chances at a Champions League spot with a 3-2 home win versus Lecce.  Francesco Totti scored twice to give Roma the victory.  Roma’s win was good timing as the other Champions League contenders lost.  Genoa lost 1-0 at home to Lazio and Fiorentina lost 3-1 on the road to Udinese.
