With Juventus storming past Atalanta this morning and Inter Milan losing to Lazio yesterday, the defending Italian champions go seven points clear of second place. Napoli take on Bologna later on today, but even a Napoli win will leave Juventus five points clear at the top of the table.
Although we’re only near Christmas, Juventus look like clear favourites to retain the Scudetto as their title rivals are failing to stay consistent. But enough about Juventus, today Andrea Pirlo scored a remarkable 30 yard free kick to put the game out of reach.
Despite not being a finalist for the Ballon D’or, 2012 has been a year to remember for the Italian maestro. He was instrumental in Juventus undefeated title winning season and Italy’s run to the Euro 2012 final. Pirlo silenced the doubters this year and displayed to the world why he’s still a world-class player.
This free kick is another piece of brilliance that Pirlo has provided us with this year.
We’re not worthy.
