Favourite maverick

Hello Serie A fan. Our favourite maverick is at it again; Spalletti riles up the ultras, sarcastically applauds his way to a red card, and ultimately keeps Napoli at the top of the table. But Milan draw level on points as they face a showdown in the capital against Mou's Roma. We speak about that and all the rest of this week's action in this episode of Scudetto.
