March 21, 2022 By Michelle Bonsu
Depending on who you support, you'll be happy or disappointed with the results from the latest installment of the Derby della Capitale.

As things stand, AC Milan are presently on top of the table by three points as the title race reaches its final stages. That being said, the Rossoneri are not home free just yet, especially with Inter and Napoli in hot pursuit. Meanwhile, the Derby della Capitale was a one-sided affair, with one of Rome's teams cruising to a comfortable win while the other were left reeling after a heavy 3-0 defeat.

Here's a quick summary of what went down this weekend across Italy's top flight.

Who are the top three goal-scorers in Serie A?

Here's how the race for the Capocannoniere is shaping up this season. Roma's Tammy Abraham has now broken into the top three following his brace against Lazio:

Serie A headlines, stats, and other facts

Abraham sets major record in Derby della Capitale: The English international was the protagonist as Roma picked up a crucial 3-0 win over Lazio. And in scoring a brace, he set a couple of major records. The first was the timing of his opening goal, which came just 56 minutes into the clash - making it the fastest ever goal scored in derby history. In addition, he's the second English player to score a goal in the Derby della Capitale - after Paul Gascoigne did so in November 1992.

More frustration for Inter: It was another frustrating outing for Inter, who ended up dropping two points in a draw with Fiorentina. This certainly only increases the pressure on Simone Inzaghi, who now sees his side six points behind league leaders Milan and will be facing a tough test when the Nerazzurri resume action after the international break as they'll be taking on Juventus.

Huge achievement for Juve's Paulo Dybala: The Argentinian international was on target as Juve rebounded following their humiliating 3-0 loss to Villarreal in the Champions League. In doing so, he's achieved a huge milestone - becoming the third most prolific foreign goal-scorer for Juventus in the club's history - and has joined some notable names in doing this:

Top Serie A matches: April 3, 2022

Like all of Europe's "Big Five" leagues, Serie A will unfortunately be interrupted due to another installment of international games. Still, once the league does resume action next month, there are plenty of big games calcio fans won't want to miss, including:

Juventus vs Inter: Another installment of the famous Derby d'Italia will be one of the games not to miss once Serie A resumes. The stakes couldn't be higher as Juve sit in fourth, while reigning Scudetto champs Inter are in third, with just one point splitting the two. The Nerazzurri do have a game in hand but will be keen on ensuring they turn their disappointing form around, which has seen them win just one of their last five matches.

Sampdoria vs Roma: Fresh off their win against Lazio, Roma will hope to continue onwards and upwards as they take on Sampdoria, who've had their share of mixed fortunes, but could still throw a spanner in the works if the Giallorossi aren't on guard.

Atalanta vs Napoli: The Partenopei will need to ensure they can pick up three points over minnows Atalanta if they want to keep up pressure on Milan who are currently on top of the table. Napoli will come into this tie having won their last two games, but La Dea will be desperate for points as they're still hoping to somehow secure a top four berth and feature in the Champions League next season.

Milan vs Bologna: The Rossoneri presently enjoy a three point lead over the chasing pack and could extend it to six if Napoli suffer what would be a surprising negative result against Atalanta. That being said, Stefano Pioli's side won't be relying on anyone to make things easier and will do their best to pick up a victory over a Bologna side who've been in poor form lately.
