Serie A Matchday 33 Roundup: Juventus in line to Lift Serie A title

Juventus made huge strides in their quest for their sixth consecutive Serie A title as they thumped Genoa 4-0 with a superb attacking display complemented by neat defending from the team’s experienced and competent backline.

The game was lost for Genoa when Ezequiel Munos scored an own goal in the 17th-minute before the in-form Paulo Dybala doubled Juventus’ lead one minute later.

The scores remained at a respectable 2-0 up until the 41st-minute when Mario Mandzukic scored to make it 3-0.

Leonardo Bonucci notched the Bianconeri’s fourth goal in the 64th-minute to cap off an impressive defensive display.

Monday night’s fixture saw Roma keep pace with Juventus in a game which ended in a similar manner as their title rivals’ win over Genoa.

Lowly Pescara played host to the giants of Rome who grabbed a 4-1 victory through a particularly great display from Mohammed Salah.

For most of the first half, the scores were goalless, but Kevin Strootman changed the entire proceedings with a goal in the 44th-minute which was then followed by a string of quick passes which led to Radija Nainggolan doubling Roma’s lead in the 45th-minute.

Salah found the back of the net in the 48th-minute before scoring again in the 60th-minute.

Roma’s defence was denied a clean sheet courtesy of Ahmed Benali’s 83rd-minute strike which served as a consolation goal amid Pescara’s average performance.

Despite Roma’s win, Juventus still boast of an eight-point gap thus making the Rome outfit unlikely to stop Massimiliano Allegri’s side from winning the Serie A title.

Goals from Diego Falcinelli and Sammy Nwankwo helped Crotone to a win over Sampdoria who notched the game’s first goal courtesy of Patrik Schick.

Having secured maximum points away at Sampdoria, Crotone now sit just four points behind 17th-placed Empoli, thus giving them a slight chance of staying up should they go on a good run.

Fiorentina and Inter Milan played out a nine-goal thriller which captivated the Serie A in the weekend.

Inter’s loss was a massive blow to their Europa League ambitions.

Khouma Babacar bagged a brace whilst Federico Bernadeschi missed a penalty in the weekend’s highest scoring game.

It all began when Matias Vecino scored in the 23rd-minute only for La Viola to be met with two quick replies from Ivan Perisic and Mauro Icardi.

Davide Astori scored in the 62nd-minute to draw things level before Matias Vecino scored again along with Babacar. Babacar completed his brace nine minutes after his first goal.

Inter threatened to stage a comeback through Icardi as the Argentina international scored two goals in the final two minutes of the 90. His efforts, though, proved futile as Fiorentina walked away with the three points.

Goals from Andrea Conti, Remo Freuler, and Mattia Caldara helped Atalanta to a 3-2 win over Bologna in what turned out to be a tight game. Mattia Destro and Federico Di Francesco scored Bologna’s consolation goals.

Adem Ljajic, Davide Zappacosta and Iago Falque all found the back of the net as Torino beat a Chievo Verona side whose consolation goal was scored by Sergio Pellissier.

Goals from Domenico Berardi and Luca Mazztielli cancelled out the strikes of Dries Mertens and Arkadiusz Milik as Sassuolo and Napoli drew 2-2.

Empoli beat AC Milan thanks to Levan Mchedlidze and Mame Baba Thiam’s goals across both halves. Gianluca Lapadula scored Milan’s lone goal.

Andrea Rispoli bagged a brace as his side, Palermo, were beaten 6-2 by Lazio.

Lazio scored five goals before the half-hour mark with Ciro Immobile (brace) and Balde Keita (hat-trick) being amongst the goals.

Luca Crecco struck home Lazio’s sixth goal of the game in the 90th-minute.
