Serie A Roundup after February 21 games

Serie A Round-up: Crazy weekend ends with all top clubs dropping points

February 21, 2022 By Oscar Rojas
The chasing pack got closer to the leaders thanks to the end results registered across Italian pitches.

Several talking points emerged from the most recent matchday in Serie A, starting with the fact that only four teams were able to win their games this weekend. Sampdoria, Sassuolo, Fiorentina, and Bologna all went on to win their games, leaving six matches to end in draws.

These results ended up keeping the top spots in the league practically without any change, with the only exception being Napoli, who leveled Inter on points after the nerazzurri lost to Sassuolo. The winning teams from this weekend took advantage of their victories, especially Bologna, who claimed a huge victory in their quest to try and avoid relegation.

Here's what happened in Serie A this past weekend.

Serie A Top 5 as of February 21

Milan kept the top spot in the league despite their draw against Salernitana, mainly because Inter were shocked at home by Sassuolo. The nerazzurri are level on points with Napoli, who also earned a draw against Cagliari. Juventus were unable to reduce Napoli's lead after their 1-1 result against Torino, while Atalanta's loss to Fiorentina prevented them from leveling Juventus' point tally at fourth.

Who are the top three goalscorers in Serie A?

Ciro Immobile continues to dominate the Italian top-flight's scoring lists, since Dusan Vlahovic has failed to add goals to his tally in the past couple of games. Gio Simeone is third with 12 goals.

Serie A key headlines, stats, and other facts

Sassuolo make history after Inter win: It was a weekend to remember for Sassuolo's players after their two-nil win over Inter, but their campaign away from home has earned them an honor they had never experienced. The green and black side were able to beat both Milan-based teams away from home for the first time during the same season, which will go down in history as a franchise record.

Quagliarella enters elite list of Serie A goalscorers: 39-year-old Fabio Quagliarella continues to dazzle fans with his goalscoring skills, and this time, the seasoned veteran led Sampdoria's key win against Empoli in their race to avoid relegation. Now, Quagliarella is only the eighth player in Serie A history and the only one active to have scored in 18 conssecutive calendar years in a list that includes names such as Alessandro del Piero, Roberto Baggio, Francesco Totti, and more.

Juve continue with unbeaten run in Derby della Mole: The most winning team in Serie A history has dominated most of their meetings against Torino, but what has happened in their second matches of the season is really worth-noticing. Juventus currently own a six-game streak without a loss against Torino in the return leg of the past six seasons, cementing their dominance over their city neighbors.

Top Serie A matches: February 25 - February 28, 2022

Milan vs Udinese: The league leaders return to the San Siro trying to make the most out of their home-field advantage against the struggling Udinese, a team standing three points above the relegation zone. Milan's last game saw Pioli's men being embarrassed by one of the teams in the lower side of the table, and having a repeat of that feat would not be a good thing for the rossoneri in their quest to win another league title.

Genoa vs Inter: The home team has only been able to win one of their 26 games this season, and their current streak of 23 games without a win may invite you to think this will be a walk in the park for Inter. Nevertheless, the nerazzurri have found their worst form in their past three games, and dropping more points here would be catastrophic for their chances of winning back-to-back titles.

Lazio vs Napoli: The away side will get one more chance to climb to the top spot of the table when they face Lazio. The hosts are sixth, trailing Atalanta for a spot in the top 5 by only one point, and considering how these teams have performed during the season, it would not be strange to see a real nail-biter between these clubs when they meet at Stadio Olimpico.
