Where to watch Lecce-Inter and Milan-Atalanta and today’s matches in Serie A- breaking latest news

by Salvatore Riggio

A Sunday of great football with all the big league teams on the pitch: Juventus starts, then Napoli, Inter and Milan

A beastly Sunday. All the greats on the field at the same time today, Sunday 25 February, for the 26th day of the championship.

Where to watch Lecce-Inter

(6pm on Dazn)

(Paolo Tomaselli) Guys, it’s your turn. And never mind if the other times it didn’t go so well. In Lecce – where pouring rain is expected in the hours before kick-off – Inter arrive with 9 wins out of 9 in 2024 and by necessity, between injuries and the calendar, the joker of the heavy turnover that hasn’t been seen for December. In Lecce, between the efforts against Atletico in the Champions League and the recovery against the very tough Atalanta which looms on Wednesday, Inzaghi wants to continue his escape from the Scudetto, but must resort to the emergency plan: Sommer has a fever, Acerbi is still out for the calf, Calhanoglu is not at his best and Thuram is in the pits for at least another week due to the adductor strain that took him out at the end of the first half against the Madrid team.

Without the backbone of the team, the coach cannot also remove captain Lautaro, who is always happy to lead the way and perhaps reach 21 goals like a year ago (now he has 20), but after just 25 games. Precisely against Lecce in the pre-Christmas first leg without Lautaro it was clear that the Argentine is irreplaceable. And Calhanoglu, who has just proclaimed himself the “best playmaker in the world“, comes very close, because both are the engine of the offensive game and also of the defensive phase, which begins with the enormous work of Toro. Next to him in attack is Sanchez’s moment, favored over Arnautovic and expected to confirm his performance considering that he almost always comes off the bench with the right attitude and intuitions.

The only two times that the turnover was so large as to also consider the reserve goalkeeper Audero and Asllani on the pitch together did not go very well: 3-3 in Lisbon against Benfica after the shock 3-0 in the first half and defeat in extra time comeback with Bologna in the Italian Cup. The goalkeeper will want redemption, but he will also have an unprecedented defense in front of him with Bisseck, De Vrij and Carlos Augusto. Barella should rest in the middle, with Frattesi inside. With Asllani favored over Calhanoglu not at his best. On the wings there are more certainties with Dimarco and Dumfries. And the latest arrival Buchanan is eager to play at least twice the 15-minute portion of his debut with Salernitana. The Canadian can disengage both on the right and on the left and his contribution, after almost two months on the benches of Appiano, can be useful to give some rest in the most expensive role of Inzaghi’s system. In addition to a stormy barometer, Inter finds an injured opponent, who has lost five of the last six matches and has the fear of being involved in the fight for survival after having maintained a pace from the start that has always kept them at safety distance from the most dangerous areas. D’Aversa, however, finds the defensive leader Baschirotto and in attack the very fast Banda, someone who has two cheetahs as pets.

«The numbers tell us that it is impossible to get a result, but in football there is nothing impossible» comments the Lecce coach. However, the numbers also say that always winning is not an easy feat. And if there is a day to try to trip Inter and stop their frenzied escape, it is probably this one. But just when the alarms have already gone off – due to the absences of too many big names – the big teams often find themselves ready.

Cagliari-Naples

HERE the live broadcast

Napoli, having taken the lead with a goal from Osimhen, were caught up in the last minute by Cagliari with Luvumbo gaining a precious equaliser. Cagliari plays one of its best matches, Napoli almost their worst of the season, at least for 65 minutes. Then there is Osimhen and it seemed that it might be enough for Calzona, Napoli’s new coach, to bring home the three points. But in the end the draw. READ THE COMMENT HERE

Milan-Atalanta

(8.45pm on Dazn)
(Carlos Passerini) Turning the page. Right away. Because a third consecutive defeat, after those in Monza and Rennes, would risk opening up yet another crisis in Milan’s up-and-down season. The main mission is to secure the Champions League place, but to do so we need to get back to racing. The trouble is that Atalanta is currently the worst possible opponent: they are coming off six consecutive victories and this year they have already knocked out the Devil twice out of two, between the championship (3-2) and the Italian Cup (2-1). Pioli, back in the fans’ sights despite qualifying for the Europa League round of 16, did not hide the difficulties of tonight’s match at San Siro by reviving an old but effective definition from Guardiola about the Bergamo team: «It’s as annoying as the dentist, we we will have to be more.” More than anything else, it will be necessary first of all to try to anesthetize Gasperini’s attack, the third of the tournament with 47 goals, which could do a lot of damage to the AC Milan defense, punctured 7 times in the last two matches alone. A department in haywire, in which Maignan is also in clear difficulty. There are those who say that after the case of the shameful racist insults in Udine he has lost a bit of serenity, but the issue of the contract expiring in two years could also weigh on him, with the big names from half of Europe targeting him. Then there are those who point the finger at the new trainer, the Welshman Roberts. «But Mike’s miracles are not over – Pioli cut short -. He remains one of the best goalkeepers in the world.” The good news regarding the defensive department is that Kalulu and Tomori are finally on the road to recovery: their absence has been felt badly.

«We will have to be compact, attentive and aggressive, we will have to try to hurt Atalanta because we have the characteristics to do so» made it clear the Rossoneri coach, who relies on Giroud to start racing again in the championship. The 37-year-old Frenchman, who has not been a starter in the last two matches, will thus resume his place at the center of the attack. He has already scored 13 goals this season. This could be his last year with the Rossoneri: the American MLS is courting him and Olivier is thinking about it seriously, also as a lifestyle choice for his family. He will make a final decision in March-April. But until the end, he assured those close to him, he will give everything. His goal is to reach 20 goals. The one between him and his former partner De Ketelaere will be a duel within a duel. In Bergamo the Belgian exploded, finding the confidence that he had always lacked in Milan. Atalanta will redeem him in June by investing 22 million euros: a great deal considering that in the summer of 2022 Milan paid him 35. “He wasn’t a dud,” Pioli reiterated when asked a specific question. In fact, some regrets remain: the boy put his best foot forward, but something was certainly wrong at the management level, within the club. Tonight at San Siro, where last year he made one gaffe after another, CDK will try to leave his mark. Between the championship and the cups he has already scored 10 times. Attention.

Atalanta will return to San Siro on Wednesday for the recovery against Inter. The plan is clear: 6 points out of 6 to move to -1 from Milan. The Bergamo team’s calendar includes a tour de force with 4 matches in 11 days and Gasperini isn’t up for it: “It’s not a normal thing, I don’t know what controversy would have come out if it had happened to some other team.” It’s poison time: it means we’re starting to get serious.
