Take it to the max

Hello SerieA fan,

The Scudetto curse strikes again as the Italian teams fall short in Europe, and UEFA add to their pain by turning up the difficulty in the draw. It's not all doom and gloom though, at least not for inter who take a last-lap lead in the race for winter champions, nor for an impressive Empoli who upset Napoli. But there's only one victorious max this weekend and it's not Allegri. All that plus updates from elsewhere.. on this episode of Scudetto!
