Serie A 2023/24

Round Five Takeaways

Inter maintains perfect start

Inter Milan’s perfect start to the Serie A season continued with a 1-0 win at Empoli on Sunday but the Nerazzurri found it harder than they perhaps expected against a side that has yet to register a point or score a goal after five matches.

It needed a special strike from Federico Dimarco in the second half to break down Empoli’s resolute defense, which had conceded 12 goals in its previous four matches. More than half of those came in last weekend’s 7-0 defeat at Roma, which led to the dismissal of coach Paolo Zanetti and the hiring of Aurelio Andreazzoli for his third spell at the club.

Lukaku and Immobile scores again

Romelu Lukaku is proving to be a shrewd signing for AS Roma after scoring again over the weekend in their 1-1 draw against Torino. Lukaku has now scored 59 goals in 100 games in Serie A; only five players have netted more goals in their first 100 matches: Trezeguet (63), Montella (64), Shevchenko (64), Higuaín (65) and Cristiano Ronaldo (8).

Just like Roma, Lazio were also held to a 1-1 draw by Monza with Ciro Immobile scoring from the penalty spot in the 12th minute. Immobile has now been involved in 250 goals in the big five European Leagues. Since 2012-13, he is the first Italian player to do so, as well as the eighth player to reach this milestone with Messi, Ronaldo, Lewandowski, Suárez, Benzema, Kane and Salah.

Champions Napoli struggles continues

Napoli are seventh in Serie A after a goalless draw against Bologna on Sunday as Victor Osimhen missed a penalty. The current champions, now winless in three, have faltered in their defence of their title in the very early stages of the season and are now seven points off Inter Milan, who top the standings. Bologna, meanwhile, find themselves two points behind Napoli, in 11th position.

The frustrations for Napoli continued when Osimhen was subbed off in a 0-0 draw against Bologna at the Stadio Dall’Ara and openly criticised Rudi Garcia while on his way to the bench. The move came just a week after his teammate Khvicha Kvaratskhelia had a similar reaction in the club’s 2-2 draw against Genoa.
