Serie A Roundup – Week 23

serie-a

The race for European spots tightened up considerably after Week 23 of Calcio Italiano. After this week only 6 points separate 2nd & 6th place.

AS Roma remained unbeaten in 2009 with a crushing 3-0 home win vs. Genoa.  Cicinho scored his 1st of the season in the 26th minute and his Brazilian compatriot Julio Baptista broke out of a 3 game goal-scoring slump to score  late in 2nd half injury time to move into a 5th place tie in points with Genoa.

Cagliari & Napoli took big hits in their quest for European spots.  Cagliari suffered an emotional letdown after last week’s win over Juventus by losing at home 1-0 to Atalanta.  Napoli was leapfrogged in the standings by Palermo after the Sicilians defeated Napoli 2-1.

Juventus moved back into 2nd place on the strength of a 2nd half injury time winner by Christian Poulsen to give Juve a 2-1 road victory versus Catania.  Milan drew at home 1-1 versus Reggina to slide down into 3rd.
