Saturday night last game Juventus host Napoli, Scudetto game, both teams are in good form both teams are in an excellent run.
Hosts Napoli with eight straight win against Juve with 14 straight wins, there was only one result someone had to give up their winning run, and that team was the guests Napoli.
The difference was Zaza who replaced who in the 58th minute replaced Morata and 30 minutes later blasted one in to win the game. What makes this special as a win is the fact that Pogba, Dybala and Marchisio were missing, all three under performed. Napoli tried and tried to pin Juventus down they did come close a couple of time but that was that. This win also shows that Juve a really compact team without Chiellini and losing Bonucci in the early part of the second half you’d be forgiven if inform Higuaín put a couple in the net, but Bonucci’s replacement 21 year old Daniele Rugani stepped up to the party and did what he had to do.
After such a dismal start to the season it’s great to see Juventus where they belong, you could have being forgiven if we did not believe in reaching the summit after 9 games Juve were 12 points behind the leaders, but in game 25 Juve lead the way whiles the then leading team is currently 12 points behind wow will they catch up? No they had their chance they are struggling to make that Champions league place.
On Wednesday night Lazio hosted Verona and sent them home with a 5-2 defeat, whiles on Friday night Carpi hosted Roma and the giallorossi returned to Rome with all three points with a 3-1 win.
Sunday opens with Milan v Genoa Milan need to win to keep in touch whiles Genoa need a result to keep away from the bottom, wins are also needed by Palermo and Sampdoria. The big Sunday game is Fiorentina hosting Inter, both clubs need to win to keep in touch with the only other champion’s league spot.
One record on the cards is Juventus are 2 wins away to reach Inter’s record of 17 in season 2006-07, the next game is against Bologna and then none other than Inter yes Inter a win there would equal their record, and this record would be really sweet. Achieving that the record can be re-written with wins against Atalanta and Sassuolo.
