League table update

Serie A

Week 23 brought nothing more than excitement and chaos once more as a snow-swept Italy had to see two matches postponed due to the arctic conditions.

This gave Milan the perfect platform to leap frog Juventus as table toppers.

The Rossoneri made heavy weather of the simple task of winning, by falling to a stunner of an Antonio Di Natale goal at the Friuli stadium during the first half.

It was not until the second half were they decided to rid their poor form and bring on Maxi Lopez to inspire the team to a win, seeing him net the equalizer and bag an assist to triumph 2-1.

Milan’s win allowed them to go two points clear at the top, but with Juve having had two match postponed due to snowfall, the celebrations may only be short lived.

Udinese’s failings and Lazio’s comeback from two goals down against Cesena on Thursday, saw the Biancocelesti manage to move into third spot, while Inter subjected themselves to yet another defeat by losing to a 10-man Novara side.

Emiliano Mondonico’s win over Inter, however, proved little as they still remain bottom of the log, but can be proud of being the only side so far to do a double over the San Siro giants.

It was a reverse of fortunes on Sunday afternoon with Genoa being the ones who got thrashed as they got stampeded by Catania’s Elephants by four goals to the bad.

Two matches which are still to make up the reminder of Week 23’s fixtures are; Siena-Roma and Napoli-Chievo, which will meet on Monday night, for kick-off at 21:45.
