Following an eventful week 27 in the Italian Serie A, we take a look at the major talking points, including AC Milan’s failure to keep up and Ronaldo’s warning shot.
AC Milan can’t keep up with Inter
AC Milan‘s hopes of winning the scudetto this season was further diluted after they suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Napoli this weekend.
Mateo Politano gave Napoli all the three points and left AC Milan doubting their capabilities of toppling Inter Milan for the trophy.
Inter Milan have now left their neighbors behind in the race for the title, following their 2-1 victory over Torino over the weekend.
The win was their their eighth consecutive victory, placing them nine points clear of AC Milan who are currently in second place.
AC Milan could find themselves in more trouble if Juventus win their outstanding game which will put them two points above Pioli’s men.
With Juventus now out of the Champions League and with no European duties, they appear to be the potential threat to Inter Milan’s quest for success as compared to AC Milan.
Ronaldo fires the warning shot
Cristiano Ronaldo has warned his critics that the story is far from over, following a perfect hat-trick he scored in his side’s victory over Cagliari.
Rumors of Ronaldo’s departure had been rife after he was unable to help Juventus progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
But after scoring a perfect hat-trick to surpass Pele’s record of most goals in all competitions, the Portuguese skipper wrote a lengthy post on Instagram.
“…Now I can’t wait for the next games and challenges! The next records and trophies! Believe me, this story is still far from being over. The future is tomorrow and there’s still a lot to win for Juventus and Portugal!”
