The 30th match day of Serie A is coming up, and today we will be reviewing the current situation of the top four teams in the standings, as well as the current situation of each of the opponents they will face in the Italian Calcio, which starts this Saturday, April 10.
Parma vs. A.C. Milan
The first duel we will review will be played at the Ennio Tardini stadium on Saturday, April 10 at 11:00 central time in Mexico and will be broadcast by ESPN and RAI, in what will be a clash of different realities, as the local team is in the relegation zone in the penultimate position with only 20 points, while the Rossoneri occupy the second position with 60 points, 11 less than the leader and main rival, Inter Milan.
The team coached by Roberto D’Aversa has no choice but to go out and play to score, with only 8 games left to play, the team from Emilia-Romagna has only won 3 times, the last one was last month on match day 27 also at home against Roma with a score of 2 goals to 0, and in their last two games they lost to Genoa at home 2 x 1 and drew 2 goals last weekend against Benevento.
On the other side of the pitch we will have the Rossoneri, who will continue to try to get closer to the lead and move away from their closest pursuers, since last weekend they dropped points, drawing with Sampdoria by one goal at home, so Stefano Pioli’s team must look for a win against a Parma team that has only been able to score 28 goals this season and has conceded twice as many.
The last meeting between the two teams took place last year in December, when the two sides played a two-goal draw at the San Siro, in a match where the Rossoneri were always down on the scoreboard, in fact, it wasn’t until the 58th minute that they were down 2-1, and it wasn’t until the 90th+1st minute that Milan scored an agonizing equalizer through Theo Hernandez, It wasn’t until the 58th minute that the Rossoneri were 2-1 down and it wasn’t until the 90+1′ minute that the agonizing equalizer came for Milan through Theo Hernandez, who scored twice for the home team, while Hernani and Jasmin Kurtic were in charge of scoring for Parma.
Summary of the last match between Parma and A.C. Milan:
Parma: 18.5% (+383) – Goals: 0.65
Milan: 64.5% (-144) – Goals: 2.25
Inter Milan vs. Cagliari
On Sunday, April 11, at the Giuseppe Meazza stadium at 5:30 Mexico Central Time, we will have this important clash between both teams, where the priorities at the end of the season are completely different, as Inter will seek to maintain their lead at the top, while Cagliari will try to get out of the relegation zone, the match will be broadcast by ESPN.
The Nerazzurri know the importance of not letting one more point slip away in order to get back to the league title since the 2009/10 season with Mourinho, where they also reached the UEFA Champions League, and despite the fact that there are 8 rounds left to the end of the Serie A, where Inter has a lead over its closest rival of 11 points, Antonio Conte’s team understands the moment they are going through, since they have not known defeat in the Calcio for 14 matches.
Cagliari, on the other hand, comes with a record of three consecutive defeats, so the team coached by Leonardo Simplici will have to rethink for this tough match against the leader, to try to break a streak of four games without a win, the last one was at home at the Arena Sardinia stadium against Bologna 1 goal to 0.
In the last meeting between the two teams, it was Inter who managed to win with a score of three goals to one, in a match in which Cagliari started on top thanks to a goal by Riccardo Sottil 41′, but in the last stretch of the match the Nerazzurri were able to turn it around with goals by Nicoló Barella 77′, Danilo D’Ambrosio 84′ and Romelu Lukaku 90+4′.
Summary of the last match between Inter Milan and Cagliari:
Inter Milan: 72.9% (-384) – Goals: 2.49
Cagliari: 13.8% (+836) – Goals: 0.47
Juventus vs. Genoa
On Sunday, April 11 at 8:00 Mexico Central Time, on ESPN we will be able to enjoy the match to be played at the Juventus Stadium, where Genoa will be visiting the team led by the world champion with Italy, Andrea Pirlo, in what will be a match to continue to strengthen and try to climb positions in both cases, since the Vecchia Signora is in third position just behind A.C Milan with a difference of only one point, while the Genoa team occupies the thirteenth position and will continue looking to move further away from the relegation places.
When reviewing the ranking table, it is hard to see Juventus in third place, since they had been winning the Scudetto consecutively since the 2011/12 season, and the fact is that the team where Cristiano Ronaldo plays this season has struggled to achieve a clear identity of play that allows them to be the overwhelming team that we were used to seeing in Calcio, but they come into this one with a good boost in their morale after the midweek victory over Napoli, two goals to one, with goals from CR7 and Dybala for the Vecchia Signora and Insigne scored a penalty in the 90th minute for the Neapolitans.
Meanwhile, Genoa is coming from a 1-1 draw at home against Fiorentina, where Mattia Destro was in charge of scoring for the blue and red team and Dusan Vlahovic for the visitors, so Genoa has three matches without defeat, so they will try this weekend to continue with the good streak.
The last time the two teams met was in the round of 16 of the Coppa Italia, where the Vecchia Signora defeated Genoa three goals to two in extra time, so it was a high-scoring match, in which Kulusevski 2′, Morata 23′ and Rafia 104′ scored for Juventus, while Czyborra 28′ and Melegoni 74′ scored for Davide Ballardini’s team.
Summary of the last match between Juventus and Genoa:
Juventus: 73.1% (-371) – Goals: 2.39
Genoa: 13.1% (+858) – Goals: 0.43
Fiorentina vs. Atalanta
To close the day on Sunday, at the Artemio Franchi stadium at 13:45 Mexico Central Time we can enjoy the most striking duel of the day, and despite the fact that the Fiorentina team is not living its best moment, it is a team that has players of great hierarchy that will try to take the victory to continue climbing positions for the next campaign, while Atalanta must seek victory if they want to participate in the UEFA Champions League next season.
The violets will try to get back to winning ways, since their 4-1 win over Benevento three matchdays ago, they have not been able to score a full point, as they lost 3-2 to Milan and in the last matchday they drew 1-1 against Genoa, to occupy the 14th place with 30 points.
While Gasperini‘s team will be looking to maintain the great moment they are going through, since in their last three games they have only known victories, and they have a great attack with the Colombian duo of Duván Zapata and Luis Muriel, both protagonists in the last victory against Udinese, however, the team from Bergamo cannot be careless, since they currently occupy the fourth position with 58 points, two ahead of their closest pursuer, Napoli.
Atalanta will have to review their last victory against Fiorentina, where in December last year they defeated three goals to zero, in a match where Atalanta had a great collective performance, where they managed to score 21 goals, while Fiorentina only 4, in that match scored Gosens 44′, Malinovskyi 55′ and Toloi 63′.
Summary of the last match between Fiorentina and Atalanta:
Fiorentina: 25.9% (+401) – Goals: 1.00
Atalanta: 53.6% (-169) – Goals: 2.07
