In the sixth episode of our Serie A podcast, we analyse what happened over the past week, when 62 goals were scored across 17 Serie A matches (1:00). We begin with Lazio vs. Fiorentina (3:30), a game that starred the league's top-scorer Ciro Immobile and the league’s assist leader Luis Alberto. It also featured a beautiful goal by evergreen Franck Ribéry! We look at the AC Milan win over Roma (20:20) and break down Roma’s defensive mistake that led to Ante Rebić scoring the winner for the rossoneri. We preview the big battle at the bottom of the table between Lecce and Sampdoria, two teams currently separated by only one point (25:30). We then look at what to expect in Atalanta-Napoli (29:50), the Turin derby between Juventus and Torino (38:30), and Roma-Udinese (41:15). Finally, Steve (43:30), Daniele (48:40), and Chris (50:30) test the group’s Serie A knowledge with quizzes. Which team completes the most forward passes in the league? Which teams have the toughest and easiest schedule ahead of them? Upon moving to Barcelona, Miralem Pjanić will be the third footballer to have played with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo: who are the other two?
