Weaponising the Scudetto curse

Hello Serie A fan,

Intellectually honest Allegri intellectually takes Juve out of the Champions League, but Atalanta and perennial escape artists Roma intellectually keep their European dreams alive. We'll discuss all the mid-week action and take a look at the weekend ahead as the season heads into the home straight, in this episode of Scudetto

Running order:

(00:00) Intros, drinks and unpleasantries 

(02:16) Allegri out-Allegri-d by Emery as Juventus sent crashing out of the Champions League by Villarreal; what are Allegri's Juve?

(07:15) Atalanta to fly the Tricolore for Italy in the Europa League quarter-final after overcoming Bayer Leverkusen, but more frustration domestically as they slip further behind Juve in Serie A

(10:47) Milan edge to three points against Empoli to move further ahead of their city rivals in the scudetto race

(13:30) Inter host Fiorentina after rescuing a late point in Turin, while the Viola are going through a patchy form of their own

(17:36) Roma head into the derby against Lazio having snatched a last-minute ticket to the Europa Conference League quarter-finals; desirable and undesirable records at stake

(20:54) Best of the rest
