Inter miss the chance to go top, beaten 2-0 by Sassuolo while Atalanta are fuming at their defeat to Fiorentina.

Come on, value for value.  

 

Last night, Inter had the chance to return to the top of the league at home to Sassuolo. But their opponents absolutely bossed the game, Sassuolo running out 2-0 winners after a controlled, energetic display. 

 

After just 6 minutes, two of Sassuolo’s diamond three – Berardi and Raspadori – combined, Raspadori firing past Handanovic who again, should have done much better. 

 

On 26 minutes it was 2-0. Inter’s defensive line collapsed as Scamacca snuck in between De Vrij and Perisic, who stood still with a hopeful arm in the air as the Sassuolo striker headed home Traore’s cross. 

 

Inter tried to get back in the game but also had to deal with constant pressure from Sassuolo. Skriniar did score deep in injury time but it was ruled out for an earlier attacking handball. 

 

Fiorentina continued to shrug off the departure of Dusan Vlahovic with an impressive 1-0 win against Atalanta, another goal from Krystof Piatek separating the sides. Fury on the Atalanta bench as their equaliser was chalked off by VAR for offside of a player who did not touch the ball. Atalanta boss Gasperini was red carded for his protests, as well as imposing a media blackout in protest at recent refereeing decisions that have gone against his club. 

 

Genoa came back from a goal down at Venezia to claim a point but remain in the bottom two and there was a 1-1 draw between Udinese and Lazio. 

 

At the top, Milan, Inter and Napoli are separated by 3 points and the leadership of Serie A could change almost every game day. That’s what makes this the best league in the world! Napoli play Cagliari tonight and have a chance to go top. 

 

The final game in Serie A this weekend is Bologna v Spezia. 

 

That’s all from us today, remember to support us via a donation on the Fountain podcast app! 

 

Until tomorrow, this is Andrew saying “arrivederci, ragazzi, a domani!”
