The Serie A Femminile has started last weekend. With it now being a fully professional league, it’s very interesting to see how the sides will be performing and which players might come to Italy. Is there a possibility of a team getting the better of Juventus this year? We’ll just have to see. In this review we briefly look at the games played every week in Serie A.

Serie A: Como vs Juventus

Title holders Juventus started the season with an away game at Como. For Juventus it’s important to regain the title but also come far in the UWCL. But this year could prove to be harder than others.

It’s fair to say that Juventus didn’t have much resistance from Como as the score tells us. It ended 6-0 in favour of the Turin side with three goals from Girelli, a brace from newcomer Beerensteyn and one goal from Boattin. Juventus are off to a flying start, while Como will do well to forget this result as soon as possible.

Serie A: Milan vs Fiorentina

The Milan outfit has big plans for the future and one testament to those ambitions is the signing of Swedish star Kosovare Asllani. And what a start she had. She scored in her game against Fiorentina, but the Florence side was too strong for the Milanisti: 1-3. Two goals from Kajan and one from Mijatovic sealed the deal for the Tuscan squad. A false start for Milan, but this is a marathon and not a sprint.

Sassuolo vs Sampdoria

These two sides are familiar within the Italian football landscape and provide entertainment on the pitch. Their objectives for this season are a little bit unclear, but certainly there will be enough passion on and off the pitch for these sides.

Sampdoria was the lucky one in terms of results. They won away at Sassuolo with 2-1 thanks to goals from Kelly Gago in the latter stages of the game. Before that Sassuolo were leading 1-0 thanks to a first half goal by Clelland. Sampdoria finished strongly and that’s why they could use their dominance in those final stages of the game.

Pomigliano vs Roma

Roma finished second in the last Serie A and wants to challenge for the title. Coming of a good qualification in round 1 of the UWCL, they hoped to continue their form against Pomigliano. They were solid in their display, not very good but they got the job done. A clean shit and goals from Giacinti and Da Silva sealed the deal for the Romanisti.

Inter vs Parma

For Parma this game meant a debut in the Serie A as they took over Empoli’s license. The host from Milan hope to impress and score high, in order to qualify for UWCL – but they will need to have a great season.

Inter had a comfortable afternoon in the Serie A against Parma. They won 4-1 thanks to goals from Van der Gragt, Karchouni, Marinelli and Chawinga. Parma could only score after they were 4-0 via Cox in the 90th minute of the game.
