Serie A Roundup after April 7 games

Serie A Roundup - Inter open ten-point gap between them and second place

April 8, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
The nerazzurri are now even in games played with almost the entire league, and their win cemented their chances to win the title even more.

The 2020-21 Serie A race could be over very soon, as there seems to be no way for Inter to lose the kind of grip they have on the title with nine games to go and with the lead they have right now. With AC Milan and Juventus showing some shaky performances, it seems that the title will be Inter's to lose if things continue their current path.

With that in mind, let's have a look at the main talking points after all the games that took place this week, including those games in hand for Juve and the nerazzurri.

Top five teams in the Italian Serie A until April 7

Inter are now eleven points ahead of Milan thanks to their midweek win over Sassuolo. Added to that, Milan's draw against Sampdoria did not do any favors to Pioli's men. Juventus also dropped points during the weekend against Torino, but their victory over Napoli last Wednesday gave them something to look up to.

Serie A's Top 3 scorers

Cristiano Ronaldo scored two goals in two games for Juventus, raising his tally to 25 goals. Romelu Lukaku kept himself in the race by scoring against Bologna and Sassuolo to increase his goal numbers to 21. In third place, Atalanta's Luis Muriel also added a brace to his tally, but he will need to step his efforts up if he wants to catch up with the current leader.

Serie A - Top headlines

  • Cristiano joins elite goalscorers' list in Serie A football - The Portuguese ace bagged two more goals during the course of this week, and with those strikes, he joined Gunnar Nordahl and Antonio Di Natale as the only Serie A players to score 25 or more goals in a season after their 30th birthday.

  • Inter make history with midweek win over Sassuolo - The Portuguese ace managed to find the back of the net three times against Cagliari after a week that saw transfer rumors linking him to Real Madrid. CR7 decided to focus on his game, and he ended up earning praise by none other than Pelé, who congratulated him for surpassing his all-time goalscoring record with a social media post.

  • Napoli keep UCL hopes alive by improving goalscoring prowess - If Milan want to keep their championship chances alive, then they must find a way to survive without Zlatan. Since the Swedish striker's injury against Spezia, the rossoneri have lost three of their six Serie A games, and with Inter going through an exceptional moment, the player's return will be key to keep Milan involved in the battle for the Scudetto.

Top matches to watch in the Serie A from April 10-12, 2021

Parma vs Milan - The rossoneri travel to Parma's stadium with nothing but victory on their mind, but that might not be as easy as some may imagine due to the relegation problems the I Crociati are currently going through.

Inter vs Cagliari - The league leaders will face another team battling relegation, which may be a bit more complicated than expected. As for their rivals, earning at least one point against the top team in the league would be enough to fuel their chances of keeping their spot in the Serie A.

Juventus vs Genoa - Juve's hopes of winning the title seem to be fading away, but their history does not allow them to kick back and relax with the second place still in play. Facing Genoa will give them a good chance to win three more points, and will also see CR7 battling to add more goals to his efforts to become the leagues top scorer.
