Absolutely happy that Serie A starts this week. It's been forever it seems, however away to Sassuolo is no easy match.

Opening two fixtures for Torino are brutal. First  Roma then Inter.

Fiorentina have officially asked for the Serie A kick-off to be postponed, and at the very least Sampdoria and Genoa won’t play.

Following the bridge collapse in Genoa neither Genovese team wants to play this weekend, but the whole first weekend could also be delayed.

According to the Corriere della Sera it has already been decided that the Sampdoria-Fiorentina and Milan-Genoa games will be postponed, and Fiorentina have officially called for a delay.

“Fiorentina believes that, faced with tragedies like the one in Genoa, everything else takes second place,” a statement on the Viola’s website reads.

“It would be appropriate for even the world of football would stop and reflect at this moment, and respect in silence the mourning that affected dozens of families.

“Football is about passion and fun, but this is a moment of pain and we should all stop and embrace Genoa and its victims.”

Genoa and Sampdoria have already said they won't play, while Blucerchiati President Massimo Ferrero has stated Juventus won't play on the day of the funerals for the victims.

As of right now, it looks like the matches (outside of Genoa and Sampdoria) will be playing there matches today. A number of teams, including Juventus, are requesting a day off during the burial.

No one watching this? Napoli have turned it around, lovely first time finish into the top corner by Insigne made it 2-1.

I watched Juventus' game and pretty much as I expected it wasn't as easy as everyone thought. Good thing for Cristiano is that he realized Serie A is way more difficult than primera. In Serie A it is harder to score, harder to dribble harder to succeed. This is the real challenge in his career.

Inter playing tonight and I'm full of anxiety already. All these new players playing together with the old ones for the first time. The problem is that Peri and Vrsaljko are not ready yet because of the world cup and I heard that Skriniar also won't play because he had a thigh strain during his last training. no need to mention that Nainggolan is still injured after the friendly game against Sion. All these problems against a team that always causes us trouble. I want to crash those motherf@ckers so badly! They've also stolen Barcelona's logo. Has anyone else noticed that?

Should be 1-0 for Torino but Rincon hit the post! Big chance for Torino, it should be a goal.

What a fucking fabulous last minute goal by Dzeko. All the work done by Kluivert but that finish was... astonishing! Fabulous airball goal. Roma wins the game even though Torino was equally good tonight.

Great work by Kluivert on his debut and a lovely volleyed finish by Dzeko to take the points right at the end.

Kluivert looks like the next big thing in Italy and of course that is good for Netherlands as well. Very promising talent. his play reminds me of Robben.

the first 3 games of the season where pretty entertaining but now it's time for Inter.

Injured :/ 

that's a shame. Was looking forward to seeing how he and Vecino will play together. An exciting prospect.

No Vrsaljko as well? Is he on the bench?

Enough talent on this Inter side to get the 3 points today, but it won't be easy against these lads.

Come on Inter. 

I got a feeling will be a late 2-1 win for the Nerazzurri. Let's hope I'm right...:100_pray:
