A Proposal and a Loca Goal as Juventus Stole 'La Mole'

Season 1, Ep. 4

It was a week of the big teams winning away from home as a late Manuel Locatelli strike stole the derby della Mole, a.k.a. the Turin derby, for Juventus away at Torino, before the man of the moment later proposed to his girlfriend that night to cap off his winning goal exploits.


In a nice touch, we learn a bit more about our hosts as Mina and Nicky begin the episode with something different, by telling personal stories of their football fandom.


Also up for discussion is Milan's victory in Bergamo over Atalanta, and how good can this Milan team become?


And has Napoli done enough yet to convince Mina and Nicky that they are the real deal after a 7th consecutive victory to begin the Serie A season, this time away at Fiorentina in a match that was marred by what Nicky describes as a crushing racial abuse incident directed at Napoli players.


Then Mina is "loca" for Locatelli and Juve stringing together some excellent 1-0 wins, her favourite scoreline, over Chelsea in mid-week Champions League action and then in the derby, before Inter stages a comeback at Sassuolo with Edin Dzeko on fire.


Lazio is incredibly smashed at Bologna, while Roma has a solid home win after Lorenzo Pellegrini penned a new contract extension.


Nicky has praise for Sampdoria's Antonio Candreva staging his one-man goal of the season competition after yet another worldie in yet another 3-3 draw with Udinese, and we end on Roberto Mancini's Azzurri squad ins and outs as they prepare to face Spain in the semi-final of the UEFA Nations League in San Siro.


Look out for next week's episode of Serie A Chronicles where we'll go in depth on Italy's matches to potentially see them lift a second European trophy in the space of a few months.

What are the problems? What about Jorginho's penalty woes? What are Mancini's options? Where will the goals come from in the play-offs? What has happened to the element of surprise that they had at the Euros?Plus... Poetry chaos, and the Christmas run-in report card. Which managers will get to eat their panettone?And stick in to the end as we end with a good World Cup Qualification play-off memory featuring one Pierluigi Casiraghi (can he make a comeback???), coincidentally also from November 15th, all the way back in 1997.00:00 Italy's road to Qatar29:40 Mina's limerick33:20 The Serie A Christmas run-inDon't forget our ChroniclesQ&A mailbag show on Friday.Tweet us your questions to @serieAchronpod with the hashtag #ChroniclesQandAFor sponsorship opportunities with Serie A Chronicles podcast email marketing@mediachronicles.com.au.Find Serie A Chronicles on social media (all the links here) and at our website serieachronicles.com.Please give us a rating and review on Apple Podcasts.You can also become a Chronicles Tifoso by supporting the podcast to help keep us running, at serieachronicles.com/supporter.Serie A Chronicles is a Media Chronicles production.Digital content and social media by Calido Media.
