Juventus And Napoli Scrape Through, Inter Impresses

Juventus pulled off an away with victory against Catania ad-mist controversies to stand firm at the top of the table, 3 points clear from Napoli. Catania was denied a goal in the first half by the linesman who gave offside to Gonzalo Bergessio’s effort.

Arturo Vidal’s 57th-minute winner helped Juve to continue their winning streak to 48 matches and it got worse for Catania when defender Giovanni Marchese was sent off for a second yellow.

The goal should have also been an offside goal but this time the referee did not notice it and allowed Bendtner to shoot and the rebound was pounced on by Vidal. And to add insult to injury Catania president Antonino Pulvirenti was sent from the bench and a total of 5 Catania players were booked in the game.

Inter Milan are looking impressive as the season progresses, the San Siro outfit have stressed their winning streak to 5 matches with a 1-3 away victory over Bologna, which moved them up to 3rd in the table.

Ranocchia headed in Cambiasso’s cross on 27 minutes before the Argentine himself went on the score sheet to put the visitors 3-1 up six minutes after Cherubin’s reply.

Napoli who slipped away from top last week after a 2-0 defeat at Juventus but Hamsik saves the day for them to secure 3 points.

Napoli are now 3 points adrift of the Turnin club with 9 matches played. Napoli were wasteful in front of the goal, missing two open goals from a yard near the goal and rattled the woodwork.

Napoli should have went 1-0 up when Lorenzo Insigne crossed beautifully for Christian Maggio who somehow managed to head the ball over from one yard with the goal at his mercy but it was Marek Hamsik who eventually squeezed a 1-0 victory over Chievo.
