5 things to know about the Italian league
Question of the Day
MILAN (AP) - Roma can put some pressure on Serie A leader Juventus when it hosts Torino on Tuesday.
The defending champions don’t play until the following day, when they will be hoping continue their impressive home form against Parma.
Here are five things to know about the Italian league ahead of the midweek round:
TEVEZ ON TARGET
Juventus striker Carlos Tevez scored again over the weekend to take him back to the top of the scoring charts, level with Torino striker Ciro Immobile.
The Argentine scored the winner in a 1-0 victory at Catania for his 16th league goal of the season.
“I’m not thinking about the goalscorers standings,” Tevez said. “It was important to win the match. We’re getting closer to the title.
“Now we’re thinking about the next matches against Parma and Napoli. Each match will be like a final to win the championship, then we’ll think about the Europa League.”
Juventus hosts Parma on Wednesday, looking for its seventh straight Serie A victory and sixth clean sheet. It has won all 14 of its home league matches this season.
Parma is on a club record unbeaten run of 17 matches.
Ciro Immobile scored his first hat trick over the weekend to give Torino a 3-1 win at Livorno and snap a four-match losing streak.
It was the first hat trick a Torino player had scored in 21 years and put Immobile on course to become the first to win the scoring title at Torino since Ciccio Graziani in 1976-77.
