With the 2023/24 Serie A season approaching its final stretch, Matchday 28 threw up some real drama at the bottom of the table, while Inter stepped closer to clinching an early Serie A title with a 1-0 win away to Bologna. The Total Italian Football Podcast is here to chat through a lively weekend of football.

At the bottom of the table, plenty changed. Sassuolo claimed a vital 1-0 win over Frosinone but stayed second-from-bottom in the Serie A table, though they are just four points off Udinese in 13th after the Zebrette’s 2-1 win at Lazio.

Elsewhere, Cagliari beat Serie B-bound Salernitana 4-2, Monza won 3-2 at Genoa, Napoli and Torino drew 1-1, and Fiorentina drew 2-2 with AS Roma.

In Salento, Lecce coach Roberto D’Aversa lost his head and subsequently his job after he headbutted Hellas Verona forward Thomas Henry on the pitch after the Gialloblu had picked up an important 1-0 win.

At the top, AC Milan beat Empoli 1-0 to overtake Juventus after the Bianconeri’s 2-2 draw at home with Atalanta.
