Jose Mourinho celebrates his 1000th match with a win

There is no need to describe in detail the illustrious coaching career of Jose Mourinho. He once declared himself as The Special One and till today, he has lived up to the expectations. He has achieved greater feats in his coaching career which many of the best could envy. And, even at this age, he has not stopped achieving new feats. 

The return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic

It seems that this week has been all about the returns – Cristiano Ronaldo returned at Manchester United and made it a memorable one, Romelu Lukaku returned to Stamford Bridge and followed the path of Ronaldo, Estadio Santiago Bernabeu was active again and now, it was time for Zlatan Ibrahimovic to return in Rossineri colours and register his name on the score sheet as AC Milan won by 2-0 against Lazio.

Empoli shock Juventus

How would life be in Turin after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo? It would be different, but no one was expecting such a shocking defeat against Empoli. Juventus were lacklustre and never looked like playing as a cohesive unit and Juve know how such defeats against lower-ranked teams make the difference in the title race.

Andrea Pirlo deserved second chance

Juventus have reappointed Massimiliano Allegri as the new coach of Juventus and which means they had to show Andrea Pirlo the exit door. It was a sad end to one of the sharpest brains in world football and the legend of Juve as well. When Pirlo was appointed as the coach of Juve, it was a risky but smart gamble that backfired in the last season but could have been fruitful in the next.

Final day of the Italian Serie A: Napoli miss the opportunity, Juventus advance while...

As soon as the excitement of the final day of the English Premier League ended the focus shifted to the Italian Serie A where the former champions Juventus were in dire straits because their place in next season’s Champions League was a huge risk and obviously, it would be unusual to experience watching Cristiano Ronaldo playing in the Europa League.

Juventus prevail in a crazy affair

There is no option other than winning the remaining matches for Juventus. Otherwise, the outcome would be disastrous for Andrea Pirlo and their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo. After losing the race for the Italian Serie A title, featuring in the Europa League would never be welcomed by the fans of Juve and thus, the encounter against Inter at Turin was like a do-or-die affair.

Carnage at Turin

10 goals have been scored and none conceded in the last two matches. The name of the team is AC Milan and their vintage display last night against Torino was the reminiscence of the past when the Rossoneri were the best club in the world. Still, time changes, and with that the fortunes of the teams like AC Milan. The 0-7 thrashing of Torino might be the indication of the return to the glory days.

Another record for Cristiano Ronaldo

When Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus, Paulo Dybala scored 68 goals by then and Ronaldo was struggling to hit the net for a while, but after he broke the jinx, scoring goals became a habit for the best player in the world. Juventus are going through a lean patch, still, Ronaldo’s goal-scoring abilities are keeping their hopes alive.  

AC Milan gun down Juventus

With the Champions League place at stake, there could be no options other than a victory for Juventus, but in a sensational night at the Juventus Stadium AC Milan simply thrashed the holders and put their qualifications for the showpiece event in Europe riskier than ever. In Turin, the Rossoneri rejoiced while for Cristiano Ronaldo and Andrea Pirlo – there was nothing but frustrations.

Glory for Inter and the journey was not easy

The Nerazzurri scored goals, defended well, dominated at the center of the park and Conte’s 3-5-2 formation reaped a rich harvest – the Blue and Black would be back in the UEFA Champions League next season and this glory is expected to inspire them for achieving the ultimate glory.   

The contest is getting tougher in Italian Serie A

Napoli, Juventus and Milan all have 66 points, two behind second-placed Atalanta. Leaders Inter are 11 points clear and heading for their first title since 2010, while sixth-placed Lazio have a game in hand and are now five points off Milan.
