In our last episode of the 2019/20 TFA Champions League and Europa League podcast, we break down the CL final that saw Bayern Munich going past PSG and lifting their sixth big-ears cup (2:00), with emphasis on the situation that led to Kingsley Coman’s goal (16:30), Neymar’s performance (25:20), and the work of Hansi Flick at FCB (29:15). Similarly, we unpack the EL final between Inter and Sevilla (37:00), a match that saw four out of five goals being scored from set-piece situations and Romelu Lukaku equalizing Ronaldo’s 34-goal tally in a debut season for Inter... Before netting a devastating own goal!

We then preview Juventus-Milan (28:00), a match-up between two sides who are enjoying strong momentum in the league. Will the Bianconeri feel the absence of Paulo Dybala on top and De Ligt in the back? We also take a look of what to expect from Hellas Verona-Inter (34:30), two similar formations employing a defensive line of three, as well as match-ups in and around the relegation zone, specifically Udinese-Sampdoria and Torino-Brescia (36:30). Finally, we owe a shout-out to Benevento (40:00), Filippo Inzaghi’s Serie B side who achieved promotion with seven games to spare and will play Serie A football next season.

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?

What did Sampdoria do wrong defensively on Inter’s fabulously-built second goal? Could Torino’s goalkeeper Sirigu do more on Kucka’s left-footed finisher? We preview what is expected to be the most sensational game of this Serie A season, Atalanta vs. Lazio (25:50), who feature the best and second-best attacks in the league, with 74 and 60 goals respectively. We also discuss what are the motivations for AC Milan and Roma (37:30) as they prepare to go face-off on Sunday. Finally, Steve tests our Serie A knowledge with a quiz (40:00): which teams are underperforming and which ones should have fewer points in the table? The answers are shocking!

In the third episode of our Serie A podcast, we preview the second legs of the Coppa Italia semi finals. Specifically, we look at what to expect from Juventus-AC Milan, who start from a 1-1 aggregate (1:50). Our analysts put the spotlight on AC Milan to understand what has changed this season from managers Giampaolo to Pioli (12:00), what are the team’s strengths and weaknesses (22:45), and what has Zlatan Ibrahimović brought to the table. We preview the other Coppa Italia semi final (30:00), Napoli-Inter [agg 1-0], to analyze the strategy that managers Gattuso and Conte will likely employ in Saturday’s match-up. Finally, we all give our score predictions (40:40). Will AC Milan survive the game at the Juventus Stadium despite not being able to count on key players like Ibrahimović, Theo Hernandez, and Samu Castillejo? Will Gattuso escape Conte’s pressing thanks to his starting 11’s phenomenal passing skills?

This week, we introduce several new segments. The “Cool to Know” discuss the often-bashed term of analytics and how it fits in the modern football toolkit as well as xG surprises of teams and strikers this season. In addition, we discuss which keeper is tops of the top 8 teams.(1:50) The second segment is called the “Let me ask you a question”. I put the podsters to task on explaining what they think: Is Leceister the real deal? What’s Arsenal’s problem? Will ManU make UCL? CanTottenham make Europa? Does Sheff Utd and Wolves have what it takes? Who is out of contract?(23:00) Finally, we introduce the “PreCog”. Analysts are put on the spot to predict the rest of the season. The posters respectfully and disrespectfully disagree. (54:25)
