Because Napoli can now escape. On their return, it is Inter who risk more, to the advantage of Juventus and Milan (if Maignan will be out for a short time). Roma are already in danger of going out, and without Abraham in Turin
7 games in 22 days. It is the cycle that awaits the five that the Scudetto is played – that is, the first 4 plus Juventus. The time of 3 days and a nap between one match and another, but after all this is what happens to all the leading teams when they are also in Europe: 4 Sundays, 2 Champions rounds, and a midweek turn, from 16 October to November 7. And if the assumptions that everyone can meet everyone and that there are no easy games are always true, however there are those who risk a lot and those who can benefit from the breakup.
The biggest favorite from this round of 7 is Napoli, which can even extend the lead in the standings. He will meet below (in capital letters the away teams): Turin-Legia-ROME-Bologna-SALERNITANA-LEGIA-Verona. Four home games out of 7, an easy away match technically and logistically to Salerno, and other commitments within reach. Instead, Inter risks detaching from the head: LAZIO-Sheriff-Juventus-EMPOLI-Udinese-SHERIFF-MILAN: beyond the Champions League commitments now all capital given the ranking situation, the greatest difficulty is that in 5 championship days they will meet 3 of the other 6 sisters, with a terrible start with Lazio away and Juventus at a distance of 8 days, but with the European match in the middle. Juve has land to recover from the disadvantage: Roma-ZENIT-INTER-Sassuolo-VERONA-Zenit-Fiorentina: an impervious start where it will therefore be essential to have recovered Dybala well, but then the final also allows a certain rotation (even if obviously the bianconeri are in the situation of not being able to afford more hesitation).
AC Milan would be in the same situation: Verona-PORTO-BOLOGNA-Turin-ROME-Porto-Inter: challenging but well distributed, with a more affordable start and a last week in apnea. Except that the situation has worsened with the absence of Maignan: he will be out for at least two weeks, it is possible to return after the November break, Mirante has arrived in the meantime, but certainly the French goalkeeper was already giving peace to the department.
Who is worse off than all is Roma: not only have they already scattered precious points on the street; not only has the most difficult calendar like Inter, with JUVENTUS-BODOE-Napoli-CAGLIARI-Milan-Bodoe-VENICE in the series; but now he is also holding his breath due to the injury of Abraham, who came out prematurely from Wemble with a limp in the 92nd minute, after being only a quarter of an hour earlier. Roma are one step away from slipping away with a calendar that in 3 weeks is a loaded gun aimed at: Abraham’s speed would be necessary to dodge bullets …
