Mauro ICARDI, Federico FAZIO and Rodrigo DE PAUL all scored on the weekend for their clubs.
The Serie A standings are as tight as it can get. The top four teams are all separated by four points. Gabriel BATISTUTA’s former team AS Roma sit fourth at 38 points, Mauro ICARDI’s Inter occupy the third spot on 40 points, reigning Serie A champions Juventus (lead by Gonzalo HIGUAIN and Paulo DYBALA) are sitting in second place on 41 points while Diego MARADONA’s former team lead the league on 42 points.
Inter’s undefeated run finally came to an end on the weekend as they lost at home 1-3 to Udinese. The visitors took the lead in the 14th minute but Mauro ICARDI netted just a minute later to draw level. The decisive goal came from another Argentinian as Rodrigo DE PAUL scored a penalty in the 61st minute before BARAK sealed the victory in the 77th minute.
AS Roma’s Federico FAZIO scored in the 94th minute to give his team a dramatic 1-0 victory against Cagliari. FAZIO’s goal came off a set piece but not off a towering header which you would expect. Instead, Federico in a poacher style, got on to a loose ball in the area to score. One player who must feel releaved is fellow compatriot Diego PEROTTI who had missed a penalty earlier in the match.
