Serie A Roundup after November 7 games

Serie A Round-up: Juve get closer to top five following Milan's draw with Inter

November 8, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
The bianconeri were the big winners of a weekend where neither of the top three teams were able to win their games.

The Italian Serie A saw one more week coming to an end this weekend with Milan and Napoli still going toe-to-toe for the top spot. Unfortunately for them, their inability to win this weekend kept things as they were before, and with the international break coming, we will have to wait a bit more to determine how things will carry on in the Italian top-flight.

The real success story this weekend came with Juventus, who were able to claim a key win to return to the upper half of the standings. Thanks to Juan Cuadrado's goal, Allegri's team is now in striking distance to join the top five clubs in Italy, which could mean more entertainment for fans around the globe if the biancoeri can become title contenders.

The top three teams in the tournament did not change that much, but there were indeed some changes in those spots under those that occupy the podium. Here's how things look like in the Italian top-flight before the upcoming international break.

Who are the top five Serie A teams after Matchday 12?

Napoli and Milan kept their lead at the top of the table in spite of their draws this weekend. Inter, who shared points with Milan after this week's derby, is still seven points behind both league leaders. The major change among the top five was Roma's exit from the pack due to their loss to Venezia, which Atalanta and Lazio took advantage of to leapfrog Mourinho's team.

Serie A top 3 scorers

The top spot in the goalscoring charts belongs to Ciro Immobile, who has hit the ten-goal mark as a Lazio player for the sixth straight season. The runner-up spot belongs to Giovanni Simeone with nine goals, and the third spot goes to Dusan Vlahovic, who has found the back of the net eight times.

Serie A – Top headlines

  • Milan set franchise record in three-point-per-win era - The Derby della Madonnina left quite a few talking points, one of those being the record set by the rossoneri. This rossoneri squad has gone down in history as the first to earn 32 points out of their first 12 games in a Serie A season since the three-points-per-win rule was first applied in the Italian top-flight. Will this good start translate on a new title by the end of the season?

  • Calhanoglu joins elite list of goalscorers with goal vs Milan - The Turkish star found the back of the net against his former side to give Inter a lead they would eventually lose, but that was not the main thing for the playmaker here. With that goal, he became the fourth player in recent history to score for both teams in a Derby della Madonnina. That list of players includes names such as Hernán Crespo, Ronaldo, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Some top company for the former Bayer ace!

  • Atalanta set new record playing away from home - The team led by Gian Piero Gaperini keeps thriving in the Italian top-flight, and after years where the team struggled to maintain the category, they are now one of the most consistent teams in the league. A good example of this is the recent record they achieved with their fifth win in six games on the road this season, something they had never accomplished in their time playing Serie A matches.

Top matches to watch in Serie A on November 20-22, 2021

Lazio vs Juventus: Massimiliano Allegri's men have not been as close as they are right now to climb back into the title race, and beating Lazio, one of the teams ahead of them this season, would do wonders for their cause. The team from the Italian capital has been impressive when playing at home, winning all but one of their six home matches this season, which will make Juve's job a bit more difficult.

Fiorentina vs Milan: The Viola team have lost four of their last six Serie A matches, and getting ready to face Milan while under such a streak may not be the best idea. On the other hand, Milan saw a five-game winning streak come to an end against Inter, and all Pioli's team will have to worry about will be to keep most of their players away from the "FIFA Virus" that "attacks" whenever an international break occurs.

Inter vs Napoli: The nerazzurri seem to have lost their momentum with only two wins out of their last five games, but if they want to jump back in the title race, then they should try to give Napoli a good run for their money. The current league leaders have also slowed their record-breaking pace, and the match against Simone Inzaghi's men would serve the purpose of cementing their spot as true title contenders and proving to the world that they have what it takes to beat those in the race to win the Scudetto.
