Serie A Week 29
Milan fought back and won 2-1 against Roma with Zlatan's two goals and his great effort. The Rossoneri achieved a very important victory and kept the four points gap between Juventus. But the coach Allegri's choises were crucial, as he lost his best defender Silva to injury.
Palermo drew 1-1 Udinese in Sicily undeservedly, as the refrees made decisive errors. Gabriel Torje answered to Fabricio Miccoli's opener and Udinese grabbed a point from Sicily. But if Guidolin did not field a ''wrong lineup'' , which is not extremely defensive, maybe they could have won and keep themselves in UEFA Champions League spots race.
Napoli threw away a 2-0 lead against Montella's impressive Catania. The coach Mazzarri thought the game is already over, as the team is conceded two late goals from set pieces, and they lost a big advantage against Lazio for the first three spots race before the upcoming Juventus game.
Novara and Lecce drew in a six points relegation dog fight game, which is a bad result for the two teams.
Parma, Fiorentina , Siena , Genoa and Cagliari are feeling the relegation danger.
Atalanta achieved a very important win, and the team has climbed to a much safer place at the table, althought they played without their best two strikers.
Lazio expectedly had difficulties of scoring with Klose's absence against Cagliari. Thanks to Diakite's late header which is gave a three points advantage to Lazio for the first three spots against Napoli and Udinese.
Juventus deservedly won the Derby d'Italia, and kept chasing Milan from four points behind, and put the struggling Inter into more troubles.
