8 draws in this round if Udinese-Roma continues to be a draw (after it was postponed due to the incident). Lazio and Lecce didn't get the memo.

Relegation battle is getting intense. Some teams have a chance to escape the zone or at least be more relieved. Will be interesting. I won't be displeased if the current bottom three are down. Shame for Salernitana though, would like them to stay up, send Udinese down, but 0% chance thar happens.

5th CL spot will also be interesting. Will be fun if Roma or Atalanta manage to win the EL and finish 6th or lower. We'll have 6 CL sides.

Has there ever been as many draws as this week in the history of Serie A?

Empoli and Inter are the only Serie A clubs without a red card in league play.

They got a draw due to an own goal lol.

I think Allegri stopped giving a shite tbh, he knows he is history soon.

They had 74% possession and only managed 3 shots on target :D

They're playing out the string. There's no way they mass Milan and also no way they fall out of the UCL spots.

Lucky for Juve Roma and Bologna play each other this weekend so one of them will lose points and cannot close the gap. But it's still very unlikely they fail to reach the CL despite their poor run.

Gobbi are 12 points away from the 6th Lazio so there is no way they will miss CL. I assume that the 5th also qualifies for CL now?

I *think* its guaranteed now. there's a chance we may even get a 6th slot. Juve will definitely be in the CL next year.

6th slot is only for the case Roma finishes 6th and wins EL or Atalanta finishes 6th and wins EL. But yeah, hard to see Juve dropping to 6th place.

I thought I read an article that it was still unclear what happened if we got a 5th place and an EL winner

Yesterday i was reading on TMW that if Roma/Atalanta finishes fifth and wins EL, then the 6th place will also qualify for CL. But if Roma/Atalanta finishes fourth, third or second and wins the EL, there will be no extra italian team so only 5th. Strange rule honestly.


it's also possible that italy will have 9 or 10 teams in Europe, but there need to be too many combinations they said.

Milan's new coach. Lopetegui, Van Bommel, Fonseca, Gaultier

I don't know, all underwhelming. So much pressure on anyone from the get go, they will demand 2nd star too and make it 1 or 2 mistakes at the start , Don Simone will be sprinting away.

They may be better with new coaches but both Juve and Milan have far more problems with squad, defenders for Milan and midfielder for Juve, let’s see who they bring in in summer to change their fortune.

Juve could have an interesting summer financially too with like vlahovic wages and stuff? Gonna be a difficult situation even with the recapitalisation I think. Though they'll probably end up selling a bunch of their loaned dross and it'll help

Don't have one.

Milan have both defense and midfield problems imo despite what it seems on surface as good buys in rlc and reijnders. It's the main reason why they can't deal with high press and why roma and de rossi with copy-paste tactics from inzaghi managed to deal with them easily.
