Lol, we beat Juve in a week others drop points and we're miles out of contention (just EL only really achievable if results improve)

Lol, Nainggolan scores the equaliser for Cagliari against his parent club.
Hopefully Roma can share the spoils in the derby now
Be careful what you wish for. Roma should have won comfortably but could only draw and then Juve lose to Napoli to make it only -3 to inter and -5 to Lazio who have a game in hand.

Still a massive leg up for them though with their title rivals dropping points

Perfect weekend to drop a game

On paper atleast that was always going to be our most difficult away trip in the run home.
Inter have the derby coming up in a couple of weeks and then travel to Lazio the following week so a massive fortnight for them.
Inter and Lazio both still have to come to Turin aswell so still plenty to play out

Far from pretty, but a good week for Napoli. First beating Lazio and reaching the Coppa SF's, then defeating Juve this morning.

Manolas playing really well, can't wait to see Koulibaly back and those 2 finally have time to build a good partnership. Demme's been a handy acquisitions too, added much needed steel in the middle of the park.

Good to keep the title race interesting too.

Surely Boga is one of the wingers we bring in to replace Pedro and Willian in the summer. €15m is a no brainer for him.

Lazio and Inter doing enough to keep the pressure up.

If they are still within 6 points when the Champion League starts then there is a real chance that Juve will drop some points.

Juve are playing rather poorly and still picking up wins.

Playing poorly and picking up points had been out style for a while now, I’d be more worried if we were playing well.

Very happy to see Lazio drop points at home to Hellas Verona.
Massive two weeks coming up with the Milan derby this week followed by Inter v Lazio the following week. Hoping that Milan can take points off Inter and then Inter and Lazio share the points whilst we hopefully pick up maximum points to give us some breathing room

Lazio signed not a single player in January. Ridiculous.

Then we hit the post twice but it won't go in.

Anyway, realistically, the scudetto is and was only possible if Juve and Inter dropped points. There was no way that Lazio's squad can compete with those squads:

Hellas fully deserved that win, they were the better side and we are churning out some absolute rubbish ATM. We have left the door open and Inter or Lazio won’t get a better chance to win the scudetto

Hellas Verona in the last week have avoided defeat away to Milan and Lazio and now beaten Juve. Them and Bologna capable of finishing in a european place.
I can see why too, they play a pretty solid style of football and they caused us real problems at times. Wouldn’t be too upset at all to see them grab a Euro spot

If they grab a euro spot it will be well deserved but I’d prefer a team that can go further in Europe grab the spot.
