Giornata/Week 36: Serie A Preview and Results

Quotes of the Week in Italian Calcio

“Watching the Champions League semi-finals this week, my tactics aren’t too different from those used by Sir Alex Ferguson and Rafa Benitez. I guess this means I’m ready for the big time…”

Livorno Manager, Gian Carlo Camolese. He forgot to add that the Amaranto are dangling by a thread for an eventual drop into the big-time of Serie B football.

“It would make me happy if Moggi would call me and explain what truly happened in the last two years, because I don’t know."

Former Azzurri and Juventus boss, Marcello Lippi. Are you sure you want to hear the truth, Mister Lippi? As Ronaldo once said, "There is the true truth and the truth."

“Gigi Buffon sent me a pair of his gloves. I have begun to collect those worn by men I respect like Dida, Claudio Taffarel and Gianluca Pagliuca.”

Rubinho, the keeper for Genoa. Well, if outfield players can exchange shirts, why can't keepers swap gloves?

Sunday, 04 May 2008 at 1500 local time.

Cagliari 2 x Fiorentina 1 (Look for Cagliari to continue their fine form of late as La Viola recover from their UEFA Cup exit against Rangers).
Parma 1 x Genoa 0 (Parma always seems to avoid the drop, but they need 3 points against Genoa).
AC Milan 2 x Internazionale 1 (Inter can win the Scudetto against their fierce Milanese rivals).
Siena 1 x Juventus 0 (Juve wants to finish the season in style. Siena always seems to give La Vecchia Signora a good game).
Atalanta 3 x Livorno 2 (The Amaranto need a result to avoid almost certain relegation).
Lazio 1 x Palermo 2 (Both teams are safe but have had less than stellar years).
Catania 1 x Reggina 2 (This is a virtual derby and the Calabrians are in dire straits).
Sampdoria 0 x AS Roma 3 (Antonio Cassano finally faces his former team).
Empoli 0 x Udinese 1 (The Tuscans need 3 points as they fight relegation).
