Serie A attendances up

Week 5 saw an average of 23,000 fans at Serie A fixtures, as attendances continue to rise.

However, last night there were an average of 23,000 fans, a figure helped by the 45,343 who attended Milan-Spal and the 35,652 at Juventus-Fiorentina.

In addition, 28,000 fans attended the Stadio Olimpico to see Napoli beat hosts Lazio 3-1.

Serie A Team of Week 5

With Napoli and Juve standing alone at the top of Serie A Dave Taylor selects his best XI from Week 5’s action.

Despite him being on the losing side, the hosts could have suffered far worse if not for the 23-year-old Italian. He was particularly outstanding when making a double save from Simone Missiroli’s header then Alessandro Matri’s follow-up, plus of course Matri’s penalty. Exceptional.

And then there were two

Napoli and Juventus continue to push each other, Inter fail to maintain their perfect start and Roma ease to victory, as Nick Valerio rounds up Week 5. 

Napoli’s Scudetto credentials were put to the test when they travelled to the Stadio Olimpico. Having demolished Milan last weekend, all eyes were on the Capital and what began as a captivating encounter turned in to a procession, as the Partenopei emerged 4-1 victors.

In a game of two halves, the spectacle was marred by defensive injuries to the integral pair of goalscorer Stefan de Vrij and Bastos. There were concerns about the lack of strength in depth at Lazio, especially after selling Wesley Hoedt, and those fears proved justified.

Atalanta Manita downs Crotone

Atalanta tore Crotone to pieces in Bergamo with a 5-1 victory – and it could’ve been more – but Marco Tumminello got the first Calabrese goal of the season.

Mattia Caldara got his head to a Petagna assist, then Josip Ilicic slalomed through defenders for his maiden Orobici strike.

Papu Gomez added a brace in the second half, including a cheeky Panenka style penalty.
