In the middle of the campaign, “Series A” is the same old story at the top of the table. In fact, Juventus only tightened its grip on Scudetto this season with a nine-point lag behind Naples – again the closest competition for the Old Woman – in the second.
Indeed, a total of 53 points, dropping just four at this stage of the season, is a new record after so many matches. Genoa and, most recently, Atalanta are the only two sides that have given the champions three points so far, although it cannot be said that the side of Max Allegri had nothing but a strange shave.
Juventus only won the game won the whole season by more than two goals – 3-0 victories over rivals Fiorentina – again relying on an excellent defensive record by this point, along with their summer signature marquee.
Player of the season so far: Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus) – 7.73
As for the ratings of players, then half-way in Serie A is not so far away, since Cristiano Ronaldo at 33 still scored with excellent speed. The Portuguese went to the Italian top flight. immediately, scoring 14 goals and registering another five assists in his 19 league matches to date. The former star of Real Madrid had direct participation in at least one goal in all but four of these trips, and was decisive for at least the dominant start of Juve.
2nd place: Alejandro Gomez (Atalanta) – 7.50, 3rd place: Joao Cancel (Juventus) – 7.49
Young player of the season: Christian Quame (Genoa) – 7.14
While strike partner Krzysztof Piatek stole the headlines of his head this season, Kouame proved to be the ideal opponent for the Polish International. This season, the 21-year-old can only have three goals, he has three more passes, and his workforce and skill in the air allowed Piateku to focus on achieving positions in the standings. The Ivorian won third place in the air duel in 90 minutes in division (6), and if he succeeds in improving his result, the junior will have a bright future in the game.
2nd place: Federico Chiesa (Fiorentina) – 7.08, 3rd place: Nikola Milenkovich (Fiorentina) – 7.03
The signing of the season at the moment: Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus)
2nd place: Joao Kanchelu (Juventus) – 7.49
While the friendly summer signing, Ronaldo is the absolute leader in the ratings of players, the new teammate Cancelo made a big impression on J Stadium. The last time, having spent in “Inta” a great season in the lease, Juve solved his financial problems in order to find his man, and the 24-year-old football player was not disappointed. The Portuguese is currently injured, but registered two assists in 12 league games, an impressive 2.2 rebounds in 90 minutes and the most successful dribbles per game (2.9) in the league.
3rd place: Krzysztof Piatek (Genoa) – 7.20
Package of surprises of the season: Parma Calcio 1913
Following their promotion to the highest level, Parma did a relatively easy job of returning to the big stage. They sit comfortably in the middle of the table at an intermediate stage, and although the goals were difficult to achieve throughout the season, a total of seven wins out of 19 is an impressive number for any advanced party. Roberto D’Aversa’s side will not count his chickens yet, but a 12-point gap in the dumping zone is a significant amount of respite.
2nd: Sampdoria; 3rd: Turin
Season Underdogs: Roma
After Gialorossi finished in the top three for the last five seasons, it will be difficult for him to keep this series this season. Eusebio Di Francesco for some time clung to his work, and this is really the place in the top six. Three wins out of four have eased the pressure lately, but the Roma are only five points ahead of Sassuolo in the 12th, which is four closer than Inter's in the third. Fourth place will provide another finish in the Champions League, which, ultimately, is the goal for the club, entering the season, but it looks like it will be his best position after an unsuccessful first half of the campaign.
2nd: Cheivo; 3rd: Fiorentina
