Francesco sends a message to Prandelli. Juve and Napoli win again. Milan and Inter ko. Cassano rules Parma to the victory. Iturbe, the ace in the hole of H. Verona
Seven are the hills of Rome. Seven were the kings of the Eternal city. Seven are the deadly sins. And seven are the consecutive victories of Roma in these first seven Serie A matches. Rudi Garcia molded a perfect war machine. The Giallorossi don't want to stop now. They dance like valkiries on the bodies of the opposite teams. Inter of Walter Mazzarri were the last demolished victim. Pjanić, Strootman and De Rossi probably compose the best midfield in Italy. Gervinho and Florenzi seem sons of the wind. De Sanctis is insormountable.
Totti - who scored twice against Inter - grows day by day. He is a young 37 years old that would like to play again a World Cup. Brazil, the land of football, would welcome the best Italian scoring active player in Serie A. Mister Prandelli, what about Francesco? Meanwhile, Rome fans dream of an unprecedented season. In the next match, they want to listen to Symphony N. 8 but will have to deal with Rafa Benitez and his Napoli that won again.
Partenopei beat 4-0 a willing Livorno. Pandev, Inler, Callejón and Hamšík are day's heroes that make supporters smile. Benitez's team demonstrated again strength in a delicate phase. Napoli lost to Arsenal in last Champions League match, Higuaín was still unavailable and in last home match, Napoli drew with Sassuolo. This victory is a cure-all for the city and for the society in view of next match against Giallorossi. The Derby of the Sun smells of Scudetto.
Napoli share second position with Juventus that won against Milan (3-2). Muntari scored twice, for Juventus Pirlo, Giovinco and Chiellini. In a stormy week for Italian government, Antonio Conte spoke as a shaky First Minister. "The enemy wants to destabilize us", he said. Juventus aren't anymore the perfect clockwork we knew in the previous two seasons, but Bianconeri don't miss a shot.
After seven match-days, the table seems to reflect qualities and values of the entire Serie A.
Nobody can stop Roma. Napoli and Juventus suffer from Champions League matches but Scudetto looks their first aim, Inter reconquered self confidence. Hellas Verona (fifth position) are a competitive group, a good mix between experienced players and young talents. If Luca Toni is a tested striker, Iturbe started sending messages to Lionel Messi. He scored his second goal against Bologna and Verona won at Dall'Ara Stadium 4-1. Fiorentina and Lazio don't stand out, Milan are synonymous of an unmanageable and confused group. Udinese, Torino, Parma and Atalanta head towards a respectable season.
In lower positions, Catania, Sampdoria and Bologna freak their supporters.
