Obvious penalty. Even the ref did not hesitate a second. Brutal challenge, if it was outside the penalty area it would have been a red most likely. VAR seems to be working better these days, refs checking all the important situations and it is getting slightly faster.

Still, Dybala 2 very important missed penalties in a row. Going for Higuain's choker title..?

Looking at our backline it feels like 2011. Ridiculous.

How did we end up playing Lichsteiner - Barzagli - Chiellini - Asamoah in 20 f*ckin 17?

Hit the post as well in this game, Higuain hit the bar and missed a 1 on 1 at 1-1 that just has to be scored.

Fair play to Lazio, a draw would have been fine for Juve but Lazio played well enough to win

Mandzukic and Asamoah left wing for another match, its awful.

It's at the point that Allegri has to choose between Mandzukic and Higuain and start one as as striker and utilize the 15 wingers we've acquired this summer

Man, I thought Roma was gonna get that opening as they are playing really well and still playing really well too. However, Jjuve truly need a proper challenger to their crown so Napoli needs to hold on. Do what you have to do boys.

That was disappointing from Roma, all I have to say on this. GG Napoli, 5 points clear at the summit.

Serie A is insane this season. Most competitive league with the second highest quality (behind La Liga)

Lazio is my least favorite club in Italy, but, this Lazio is a relatively young and talented team. Plus, they are tough as nails. To bad they are owned by a jerk. I think they will go far in the EL too.  They are actually CL quality.

They aren't my least favourite but they're in the mix. Their squad is great, I've been hyping them for months. Sergej is a certified star. He'll be highly coveted next summer and I'll be surprised if he's a Lazio player next season

Simone Inzaghi is unreal

Massive respect for Ciro though, another brace today.

Juventus will lose every single big game this season, we may beat Milan but they don't count for obvious reason

So far, we've lost to Lazio twice, home and away, tied with Atalanta (away), and lost with Barcelona at home. You guys still think Juve will win this over Napoli? The Napoli who demolished this Lazio team away and beat Roma away? No chance

Played well for 20 minutes in the beginning of the game and for the last 25 minutes. Horrid in between. Napoli in general didn't look all that threatening for large swaths of the game so it was definitely there for us. Just didn't happen, like the Inter game. Rather worrying that we can't seem to put away the bigger teams, but that's old news. Can't not take these kinds of chances against Chelsea.

As for Lazio, I don't like the club itself and I strongly dislike their fans, but respect the hell out of most of those players and their coach. Lulic is a straight up douche though. I respect their form though and the resolve they've shown. Incredibly tough team to beat.

Had a look at how the start of the season has gone compared to last year for the top 3.

Last year we lost to Inter (matchday 4), Milan (9) and Genoa (14) from the first half of the season. This year we lost drew Atalanta (7) and lost to Lazio (8 ). If we win the next game in Udine we'll be +1 from last year. Improving the points this year means we can only lose 1 more match.

Napoli at this point are +10 points compared to last year. They've won every game, nothing else needs to be said.

Roma are +2 points. Slight improvement even with harsh losses like vs Inter or Napoli that could have easily been a win and draw.

I'll check on the Milan teams after the derby.

This season is really interesting.

Its hard not to like Lazio these last 2 seasons (but for me there are many clubs I dislike more than them in general, Inter, Fiore, Chievo, Genoa, Palermo...). Tare and Inzaghi are doing a lot of good work.

Completely sure that Inzaghi will manage Juve.

Samp-Atalanta is an awesome game. Cristante headed it 0-1 from a Spinazzola cross.
