Comments: The game week 9 in Serie A was the most interesting in the season so far. Not only Inter won Milan with 1-0 in the 90th minute, but Juventus lost their first 2 points in Turin against Genoa. The league becomes more competitive when Juventus loses points, and now Napoli and Inter are 4 and 6 points away from the top. The point is if Juventus’ draw against Genoa was just one surprise, and if Napoli or Inter can minimize the distance significantly.
