Serie A, the history of matchday 12: numbers and statistics of the weekend games What stories do the previous matches of Serie A matchday 12 contain? Here, game by game, the events and the most interesting statistics of the round that will unfold between today, Saturday, and Sunday. “Sassuolo-Salernitana – Will Inzaghi’s team manage to score at least one goal? So far, in the two previous occasions, they have never succeeded and have returned to Salerno burdened with 6 total goals against,” said a source close to the Sassuolo team.
“Genoa-Verona – Genoa has a favorable tradition, but lately there have been two exciting draws: 2-2 and 3-3. The question is: will Gilardino and Baroni be satisfied with both moving up the standings today?” asked a Verona team insider.
“Lecce-Milan –While it is true that the Salentini have only won once in 17 meetings, this doesn’t mean that things are going well for the Diavolo, given the frequency of draws: 9, including the last match, which ended in a 2-2 draw,” commented a Milan team spokesperson.
“Juventus-Cagliari – In the 70s it was an even, top match. But Causio or Riva, for instance, are simple and competent spectators. Juventus has opened a sequence of 6 consecutive victories and wants to prolong it to sleep on Saturday night at the top of the table,” shared a Juventus representative.
“Monza-Torino – Only one previous match, but a historic one. Because Monza-Torino was the first Serie A match for the Brianzoli. They lost 1-2, but since then many things have changed, including the fact that they now have one more point than Torino,” stated a Monza spokesperson.
“Napoli-Empoli – Napoli has 7 victories, 2 for the visitors and only one draw. Garcia is asked to do as Spalletti. In this case, follow the winning one of last year, two years ago even Luciano slipped on the banana skin of his former team,” said a Napoli source.
“Fiorentina-Bologna – A match rich in history and with heated rivalry. Fiorentina has good history: putting together draws and wins for Bologna, it doesn’t reach the number of victories of the home team,” a Fiorentina spokesperson stated.
“Udinese-Atalanta – As often happens with Atalanta’s numbers, since Gasperini’s management, the figures have started to rebalance. And if the overall data is favorable to Udinese and not by a little, a win has been missing for 6 years,” added a Udinese representative.
“Lazio-Roma – In the derbies played at Lazio’s home, the balance is almost total: 27 victories for Lazio, as many draws, 2 fewer wins for Roma. Recently, however, it’s the Nord curve that celebrates, with 3 consecutive wins. Seeing how far the two teams are from the top, it seems like we’ve gone back to the other century, the 60s, when only city supremacy was at stake and nothing else,” shared a Lazio team insider.
“Inter-Frosinone – Just like the opening match of the day, this one also has a one-way script, with 2 previous encounters and a total of 7-0 in favor of the Nerazzurri. If Soulé and his teammates are even able to score a goal, it will be a significant change,” said an Inter team spokesperson.
