Chievo have the upper hand after winning the first leg of the Serie B promotion play-off semi-final 2-0 against Spezia and parrying another penalty.

It took all of nine minutes for the Flying Donkeys to take the comfortable lead, as Filip Djordjevic opened the scoring from a corner, quickly followed by Jacopo Segre firing in the Joel Obi assist.

Just as in the preliminary round of the play-offs, Chievo goalkeeper Adrian Semper was decisive by saving a penalty, this time from Matteo Ricci after Emmanuel Gyasi was brought down.

Atalanta only the beginning

Atalanta are grabbing headlines all over Europe, but Susy Campanale insists they are only at the forefront of a spectacular attacking movement in Serie A football.

Italian football has this reputation for being boring, defensive, entirely dominated by one team and the others all simply roll over for them. None of that is true in 2020. Well, alright, so Juventus are on track for a ninth consecutive title, but even here it’s far from a comfortable victory parade.
