The Italian Football FanCast is the podcast for fans of Serie A and Calcio.
This week on the show, host and Editor of Forza Italian Football, Dov Schiavone is joined by Enzo Misuraca, Rajath Kumar and Ryan Ross.
As the battle for the Scudetto reaches its climax, Juventus travelled to Naples to take on Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo. In a tight affair the Bianconeri came away with a 1-1 draw, despite going ahead through Giorgio Chiellini early in the match. The Partenopei fought back and a deflected Gokhan Inler shot levelled the score.
Thus, at the final whistle it was ‘as you were’ with Juve still six points ahead of their rivals. But could Walter Mazzarri’s side have done more to earn the win? Or are they simply not good enough to win a title just yet?
Elsewhere, AC Milan trounced Lazio 3-0 at the San Siro, in a match that was made a whole lot easier after Antonio Candreva was sent off for bringing down Stephan El Shaarawy when he looked through on goal. As a result, Giampaolo Pazzini went on to score a brace, which helped lift Max Allegri’s men into third place in the Serie A table.
Another turbulent week ended for Inter, and this time they came away with a dramatic win. The Nerazzurri travelled to Sicily to face Catania and went two goals down in the first half, but a sublime second half performance from Rodrigo Palacio helped Andrea Stramaccioni’s men turn the game around and earn a 3-2 win.
Finally, there were records broken as Francesco Totti and Antonio Di Natale further cemented their places in Calcio history. Fiorentina defeated Chievo and Sampdoria starlet Mauro Icardi was once more the Blucerchaiti’s hero.
All this and more on the podcast, plus Kevin Tarbuck bring us up to date with all the goings on in Italy’s second tier with his Serie B round-up, and special guest Grant Russell of STV looks ahead to Juventus’ match with Celtic.
