Umpires maintain unbeaten Juventus, Inter, winning five games
Juventus will be the solo leader for another week after defeating Catania (0-1), in the match corresponding to the ninth day of ‘Calcio’, in a controversial match that Antonio Conte's men won with Arturo Vidal's single goal, while Inter defeated Bologna to chain the fifth consecutive victory.
There was no lack of controversy at Angelo Massimino, where a gray Juventus got oil against Catania not without referee help. In the first half, the referee annulled a goal by Gonzalo Bergessio for an offside that was not, decision that dislodged the locals that until that moment dominated with sufficiency in their own stadium, and that ended up loading yellow to end up hitting it later.
En la segunda mitad, Arturo Vidal advanced to Juventus and the expulsion of Giovanni Marchese in the minute 67, for intercepting with his hand a pass from Vidal himself to Mirko Vucinic, finished facilitating the work of the ‘Vecchia Signora’, who ended up taking all three points to leave his undefeated status intact.
Besides, Inter have won at Bologna's home (1-3), in a match where Andrea Ranocchia's goal in the first half opened the scoring against a local team that at no time complicated those of Andrea Stramaccioni. After the break, the visiting team extended the advantage with a new goal from Diego Milito, who culminated a good assist from Rodrigo Palacio.
Despite Nicolò Cherubin closing the gap a few minutes later, Esteban ‘Cuchu’ Cambiasso sentenced the game with a beautiful goal of Vaseline. With this victory, Inter have five consecutive wins that place them in the fight to enter the ‘Champions’, still far from the non-negotiable leadership of Juventus.
