And Roma sails on. Juve and Napoli give chase to Giallorossi


The Wolves devour Bologna. Juve wins local derby. Tevez (offside) gains Pogba's goal. Napoli beat Genoa and Liverani is fired. Iturbe enchants Verona's fans

And Rome sails on. In Sunday night match, Giallorossi won again. At Olimpico Stadium, after 25 minutes Florenzi, Gervinho and Benatia annihilated Bologna (5-0 the final result). Francesco Totti still celebrates his 37th birthday at the top of the table. Statistics say Rome is an invincible fleet (17 Gf, 1 Ga). 18 points, six wins from six. Rudi Garcia planned a well-balanced team. His system of play remembers Zeman's one, but only on paper. His impure 4-3-3 has an impenetrable defense, a powerful midfield and a crackling attack. Next match, Rome will visit Inter at San Siro Stadium. Exams never end. Dino Viola, A. S. Roma's President of second scudetto (1982-1983), usually said: "In Italy, if you win a Scudetto, supporters are never content. They want to win the following season, too. This is the problem". More or less, the happy problem that Rudi Garcia must face match by match.

This match-day planned the third derby of the season. At Olimpico Stadium of Torino, Pirlo sat on the bench but Juventus beat 1-0 Granata and conquered Derby della Mole. Torino FC protested fiercely, because Tevez was offside when struck the crossbar before Paul Pogba scored the winning goal in the second half. Just four days after controversial victory against Chievo, Bianconeri again in a storm center. Antonio Conte said: "Tevez was offside but in the first half, Immobile had to be sent off. What could happen if Torino played without his forward?". We know technical device between two teams is irretrievable and we know Conte's thought: "Hands off Juventus". If The Old Lady shown again its solidity (in these first matches, five wins and just one draw), the Granata Heart keeps on suffering. Torino FC won its last derby 18 years ago.

Bianconeri share second position with Napoli that forgets the bad draw against Sassuolo, beating 2-0 Genoa at Marassi Stadium on Saturday. Benitez changed again the starting team. The return of Behrami, Albiol, Britos and Zúniga gave again stability to the entire team that won the match without anxiety, notwithstanding Hamšík didn't play and Higuaín replaced only in the second half Zapata, who made his debut without leaving a mark. Insigne played a superb match and Goran Pandev scored a double. Now Benitez must plan the next Champions League match against Arsenal. After home defeat Liverani, Grifone's coach, was fired by Enrico Preziosi, Genoa's President. Gian Piero Gasperini is the new coach of Rossoblu. He was already manager of Genoa between 2006 and 2010. In 2009 he took the team to the fifth place.

Inter drew its second match, is still unbeaten and Mazzarri is optimistic about the future. At Nereo Rocco Stadium of Trieste, Cagliari stopped Nerazzurri (1-1). Icardi (Inter) and Nainggolan (Cagliari) scored the two goals. Agazzi, Cagliari's goalkeeper, was the man of the match. Anyway, Sardinians have an efficient and tested style of play. López's team will make life difficult to entire Serie A.

Milan - without Kaká and Balotelli and in a San Siro partially closed after supporters had chanted racist abuse during their match against Napoli - beat on Saturday a weak Sampdoria with minimum effort (1-0). Valter Birsa scored his first goal with Rossoneri.

Denis scored twice against Udinese and Atalanta saw off Friulani 2-0. For El Tanque and The Goddess, the season can start now.

Sassuolo after drawing with Napoli, gets its second point against Lazio that threw away a two-goal lead. The scorers of the match: Dias and Candreva (Lazio), Schelotto and Floro Flores (Sassuolo). Eusebio Di Francesco is attempting to square the circle.

At Bentegodi Stadium, Verona's supporters can admire the left-footed Iturbe. The young Argentinian winger on loan from Porto scored a wonderful goal. Hellas conquered its third victory beating a combattive Livorno 2-1.

Catania got first win against Chievo thanks to Plašil and Castro.

At the moment, Bologna, Sassuolo and Sampdoria didn't yet win a match.


The sixth match-day will close tonight. Fiorentina will face Parma. Will Giuseppe Rossi score again?
