Inter, Napoli, Juventus set record pace

As we head into the midweek games, Inter, Napoli and Juventus have set a pace not seen since 1960 by winning their first four Serie A games in a row.

The three sides all maintain perfect records going into Week 5, something which hasn’t occurred in over 50 years.

The Nerazzurri have beaten Fiorentina, Roma, Spal and Crotone so far, conceding just one goal in the process.

Napoli are also setting a serious pace in their pursuit of a third Scudetto, thrashing Benevento 6-0 at the weekend to make it a perfect 12 points from 12.

Five-in-a-row champions Juventus aren’t to be outdone though, and have also taken maximum points from the first four rounds.

The last time three teams had a perfect record at this stage was the 1960-61 season, when Serie A had 18 teams and two points were awarded for a win.

On October 16, 1960, after four rounds, Inter, Juventus and Roma were all locked at the top of Serie A on eight points, having won all of their games.

The Bianconeri went on to win the Scudetto with 49 points, with Milan finishing second on 45.
