Aleksandar Kolarov winner continues stupendous start to life at Roma

Roma claimed a hard-fought 1-0 win at Torino on Sunday, courtesy of Aleksandar Kolarov's free kick.

Aleksandar Kolarov strengthened his case as signing of the season as his crunching free kick gave Roma a 1-0 win from a hard-fought clash at Torino that saw the Giallorossi equal Inter Milan's record of 11 straight away Serie A victories.

The Serb brought his sensational form from the 3-3 draw at Chelsea in midweek to the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino and bagged Roma's winner with their first shot on target, 69 minutes into a tense battle at a ground where they hadn't won for four seasons.

Despite playing with 10 men for 64 minutes, Juventus crushed Udinese courtesy of Sami Khedira's first career hat trick.
Sami Khedira turned in his best game for Juventus as they ran out big winners vs. Udinese.

Juventus went 1-0 down but fought to win 6-2 away at Udinese despite losing a man to a red card. A match played with heart and determination, the travelling fans were treated to a glimpse of the old Juve we recognise from last season.

Shambolic defending allowed Udinese to score a quick goal and the Bianconeri's fragility at the back was consistently exposed. However, Juve refused to accept a defeat after losing Mario Mandzukic to a red card and exposed Udinese's awful defending to score six...

Leonardo Bonucci gets 4/10 after red card as AC Milan shut out again

Leonardo Bonucci's reckless elbow drew a red card which left his teammates short-handed against Genoa.

Ten-man AC Milan were held to a goalless draw by Genoa at the San Siro on Sunday, with Leonardo Bonucci receiving his marching orders in the first half. To their credit, the Rossoneri pushed on for the win despite the setback, but they were unable to find a breakthrough as the pressure remains on Vincenzo Montella.


There was a significant improvement in the second-half performance, as even with the player deficit, Milan looked the more dangerous side as they mounted sustained pressure...

Handanovic gets 9/10 in securing Inter's first clean sheet in 76 games

The FC crew examine an enticing start to the Serie A season, which sees Juventus' stranglehold on Italy threatened.

Inter completely blew away any pre-match anxiety with a rock-solid performance, containing Napoli over 93 minutes to earn a hard-fought 0-0 draw. The Partenopei started well and were superior overall, but the Nerazzurri pressed marvellously and tried to build from the back. A dangerous Dries Mertens shot was just about parried on 19 minutes, only for Samir Handanovic to turn away a Jose Callejon rebound from point-blank range.

Luciano Spalletti's men held more convincingly in the second half,...

Juventus need Dybala and Costa to lead from the front starting at Udinese

Massimiliano Allegri defended the form of Paulo Dybala after the striker missed key penalties in recent weeks.

It was last week that Italian media and this blog discussed Douglas Costa and his slow start at Juve, struggling to provide the decisive action required to make the impact expected. The player responded in the best way possible, scoring the goal against Lazio before delivering the winning assist against Sporting Lisbon to earn the precious three points in the Champions League. 

Boasting speed and enviable technique, Costa had to come good at some point. Italian tactics are hard to integrate...

Chelsea let a two-goal lead slip against Roma before settling for a draw, while Benfica's goalkeeping gaffe gifted Man United a win.
The experts at the ESPN FC desk talk Chelsea's 3-3 draw with Roma as Antonio Conte's men have let in five goals in all competitions since coming back from the international break.

After wowing Europe by coming back from two goals down to draw 3-3 at Chelsea, Roma return to the more prosaic task of Serie A. Given last weekend's defeat to leaders Napoli, they need to take their Champions League performance and transfer it to the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino, where in addition to chasing down the top four, they go hunting an old enemy's record.

Roma travel to Turin with Inter Milan's 11-away match winning streak from 2006-07 firmly in their sights. The Giallorossi have won...
