Controversy as Allegri's Juventus defeats Mourinho's Roma

Season 1, Ep. 6

Controversy struck Serie A this past weekend (surprise surprise!) as Roma scored a goal that was disallowed for a penalty kick in their favour, which was subsequently missed and Juventus won. Nobody knew what was going on, especially when Jose Mourinho didn't rage about it.


Then upon Simone Inzaghi's return to the Stadio Olimpico, Inter got mad over Lazio not kicking the ball out when their player was faking an injury. It all got a bit crazy. Then a red card came out after the match and who'd be a referee?!?!


Elsewhere, an excellent comeback from 2 goals down saw the agony and the ecstasy of football: an impressive Milan victory secured with a heartbreaking own-goal in the Verona net, and emotional scenes after the match as the forgotten man of Milanello, Samuel Castillejo, produced a fine performance to help rescue his team and earn the adulation of San Siro, Silvio Pioli and his team mates.


Victor Osimhen inspired Napoli to their 8th win in a row to keep up their winning record and stay on top of the Serie A table.


And then Nicky and Mina review the "Footballgate" episode of the new Netflix documentary series "Bad Sport", in which Mina Rzouki is featured, detailing the calciopoli scandal that saw the biggest upheaval in the history of Italian football.
