Napoli 3-0 Cagliari
Marek Hamsik scored another and is one goal way from legend Diego Maradona. His reaction:
“Yes, I am happy, first or later I’ll achieve this goal, but what most interests to me is that we won our seventh consecutive match and that we are doing great so far. To win 7 games on 7 is a lot, our commitment is massive to keep on this track. We don’t hide, we are aware of our potentialities and we want to fight to stay on top till the end.
Now there’s the break for the National teams, then we’ll have a very demanding October. It could be a decisive month for the future of this season and we’ll give the most to keep on this positive streak”
Atalanta 2-2 Juventus
Coach Allegri is overall happy to bring back a point from a very good team:
“We could have won but we risked allowing them to break at the end. We shouldn’t have done that because the point we’ve earned tonight might be important in the long run. Our mistake was in giving the cross away, plus for the first goal we should have reacted better after [Gigi] Buffon’s save. It’s a shame because we’ve dropped two important points and deserved to win on the basis of our performance.”
