It was the first time since 1955 that four of Serie A’s biggest clubs, Juventus, Milan, Inter and Roma all lost on the same matchday.
It was an interesting weekend that left none of those clubs in the top four of Serie A and another exciting start to one of Europe’s top five leagues.
The Premier League has been entertaining and unpredictable so far this season and Serie A is no different, with Juve winning just two of their opening seven games, including this weekend’s 1-0 defeat to Monza who are playing in the top flight for the first time in their history.
Allegri has a big job on his hands at Juventus, losing both Champions league games this season so far too.
Current champions Milan were beaten 2-1 by Napoli, who now sit top of the table, unbeaten and on 17 points, along with Atalanta also on 17 points and unbeaten after their 1-0 win over Roma. Mourinho was sent off as frustrations boiled over in his side’s defeat when he felt Roma should have been awarded a penalty against Atalanta, but teenager Giorgio Scalvini’s goal was the only one in the game to leave Atalanta with all three points.
Napoli were impressive against Liverpool in the Champions League so it will be interesting to see how far they can go in the league and in Europe, after passing their big test against AC Milan.
Udinese recorded their fifth straight win against Inter to move into third, despite going a goal behind to Inter after 5 minutes. It means they match their best ever start to a Serie A season with 16 points in seven games, which they also achieved back in 2000.
The way things are going now in Italy is very good because it means there is more pressure and also higher quality needed to win the league when things are unpredictable, even if the bigger clubs turn up towards the end of the season. There is a long way to go but it looks like we’re set for an entertaining season in Italy. #mmlove
