HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENING IN PARLIAMENT
FROM JANUARY 15 TO JANUARY 21, 2016
Did you know
ROME---Diego Maradona has already promised
that he will make a splashy arrival by helicopter if
Napoli wins its first Serie A title in more than a
quarter of a century.
Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri is taking a more prag-
matic approach after the southern club claimed Serie
A s symbolic "winter title" last weekend.
"I don t attribute any importance to it," Sarri said
of Napoli s two-point lead over four-time defending
champion Juventus and Inter Milan after 19 of 38
rounds in Serie A.
The halfway champion has gone on to win Serie
A nearly seven out of every ten seasons.
The last time Napoli earned the mid-term honour
was in 1990, when the team went on to claim its
last title. Maradona was the star of the 1990 team
and also helped Napoli to the title in 1987---the club s
only two Serie A championships.
"It s useless to look at statistics from the past,"
Sarri added. "We ve got to imagine ourselves like
marathon runners. We ve reached the race s halfway
point but we ve still got 21 kilometres (13 miles) to
go."The next test comes tomorrow against a Sassuolo
lineup that is in sixth place and beat Inter 1--0 last
weekend. Inter can put pressure on Napoli with a
win at Atalanta earlier tomorrow, while Juventus will
be seeking its tenth consecutive win at Udinese on
Sunday. Fourth-place Fiorentina, which is three points
back, visits struggling AC Milan on Sunday.
Fifth-place Roma, which fired Rudi Garcia on
Wednesday, hosts last-place Hellas Verona.
Also this weekend, it s: Torino vs Frosinone; Genoa
vs Palermo; Bologna vs Lazio; Carpi vs Sampdoria;
and Chievo Verona vs Empoli.
Here are a few things to know about Serie A entering
this weekend s matches:
Nobody in Europe s top leagues is scoring at a
faster rate than Napoli s Gonzalo Higuain.
The Argentine player has 18 goals in 19 Serie A
matches---20 in 23 appearances in all competitions
---for a rate of one goal every 89 minutes.
In Europe, only Alex Texeira at Shakhtar Donetsk
(22 goals) and Nemanja Nikolic at Legia Warsaw (21
goals) have scored more than Higuain this season,
while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Borussia Dort-
mund also has 18 goals.
Lionel Messi only has nine goals in the Spanish
league while Cristiano Ronaldo has 14.
With Luciano Spalletti widely expected to be named
as the replacement for the fired Rudi Garcia, Roma
is hoping the squad can rediscover the form that
made it an early season title contender.
With only one win in its last seven Serie A matches,
Roma has dropped to fifth place, seven points behind
Roma never really recovered psychologically from
a 6--1 rout by Barcelona in the Champions League
Spalletti coached Roma from 2005-09, winning
two Italian Cups and an Italian Super Cup---the Gial-
lorossi s last titles of any kind. He then spent five
years with Zenit St Petersburg before being fired in
Forward Ciro Immobile is close to rejoining Torino
on loan from Borussia Dortmund, Luiz Adriano
appears on his way out at AC Milan---perhaps to a
club in China---and Alessandro Diamanti has joined
Atalanta on loan from Watford.
Also, former Manchester United defender Nemanja
Vidic ended his contract with Inter Milan by mutual
lead in Serie A
