Roma v Napoli about to kick off. Can Roma keep the pressure on Juventus?

The title race has become even less interesting but the race for 2nd has heated up. 2-0 to Napoli five minutes into the 2nd half at the Olimpico. Mertens with both goals.

Huge potential for Roma's season to be over with a week. A horrendous performance midweek (with a hard deficit to overcome) and a tough fixture against Lyon upcoming.

The title race has been over for a while and this is merely the last straw to end it. At least for them, Strootman's last minute goal still gives them the head-to-head advantage over Napoli.

Bacca opened the scoring with a shot that the keeper should have done much better with. And he's just had a shot cleared off the line.

Chievo equalise with a penalty and some debate whether it should have been given.

Bacca misses a penalty on stroke of half-time. Blazed it over!

Udinese go ahead agains Juventus. Zapata is just too strong for Chiellini and Bonucci. Think Buffon should be doing better though.

Torino also losing at home against 3rd bottom Palermo.

Torino was losing to Palermo until Belotti decided to strike against his old team and he ripped them apart :D what a beast. I can easily say that he's up to Higuain and Icardi's level right now.

yep, 8 minute hat-trick and he's been banging them in all season for fun.

Won't be long before English teams or someone like Napoli or either Milan club come knocking.

I hate the phrase 'scoring for fun'. Actually I hate most cliche football terms.

I think I said it a while ago back on TFF but Belotti is the kind of player I'd like to see us take a chance on. There's a lack of established top class strikers out there, so we have to look a level below at those who could take that step up, and he's matching the top strikers in Italy so he's worth a shot.

Though I said the same with Ciro Immobile who tore Serie A apart a few seasons ago at the same club and his move out of Italy didn't go well.

Good luck the rumours are swirling up for a Chelsea transfer. I dunno if that is because of the Italian Connection but I wouldn't be surprised if Diego Cunsta is hocked.

He's only recently signed a new long term contract with Torino. It would probably take Higuain-level money to buy him this summer.

The Gareth Bale transfer is really what transcended everything into these levels of $£$£ insanity. Ronaldo's and Kaka's transfers were crazy but at least they were Balon d'Or players and the craziness seemed to be a one off for several years. Belotti will easily go for  £40,000,000+.

Urgh I just care about the relegation fight. I really want Palermo or Crotone to overtake Empoli, but it look like everything is decided.

I hope Milan can snatch some points from Juventus tonight and of course I'm expecting from Roma to emerge victorious in Palermo. This is the only way Serie A can be interesting again.

Why do referees give out penalties out from nowhere these days?

If he gave it and not the assistant like is claimed then it's an absolute joke. There is literally no way he can see it clearly from his position. Even if the assistant right by it gave it, it's an incredibly harsh decision, his hand was close to his body and he was very close when it was kicked.

Probably corruption. The Italian association probably thinks that having Juventus win Serie A is best for business.

Is not only Juve that benefits from these decisions, many clubs do. Coincidentally Milan did in the first league game against them this season, where the ref invalidated Pjanic's fair goal after having validated it when Milan's players protested, that probably costed Juve 3 points, so Milan ended up benefiting the most between the two this season regarding ref's decisions.

I thought Inter v Atalanta would be a close match but Icardi already has a hat trick and we're not even half an hour in.

Inter 5-0 now against Atalanta. Not even 35 mins gone. Dizzy heights of 6th for Atalanta finally getting to them. 

Napoli have scored against Crotone aswell.

Feel bad for Atalanta. Having a monumental season, but I can only see this destroying their morale now. Doubt they'll make Europe.

I have one question.

Why the fucking hell didn't Pioli bring Gabriel Barbosa in?

This is outrageous and it stinks. Our manager puts in Palacio (who is a finished) and leaves Gabrigol (promising talent) on the bench again. What the hell??

Torino v Inter should be a good game today. Not on BT Sport though, so hopefully I'll be able to find a decent stream.
