Serie A Matchday 13‘s weekend action all felt like a gentle build towards the main event; the Deby d’Italia between Juventus and Inter. The teams looking to chase the league leaders down will be pleased at the 1-1 scoreline and the Total Italian Football Podcast is here to chat through it all.

Dusan Vlahovic opened the scoring at the Allianz Stadium after a great assist from Federico Chiesa, but a superb team goal from Inter that ended with Lautaro Martinez‘s finish meant the lead didn’t last long. It ended up being an entertaining clash between two good sides, without becoming a classic.

AC Milan closed the gap on the top two by a couple of points as they beat Fiorentina 1-0 at San Siro, with a 15-year-old Francesco Camarda coming off the bench to become Serie A‘s youngest-ever player. There were wins for AS Roma, Frosinone, Napoli, and Sassuolo, whilst Lazio slumped to defeat at Salernitana.
