It's a Valentine's Day extravaganza at Serie A Chronicles HQ but the chicken wings are on hold while we discuss the title race being blown even wider open, as Inter were held by Napoli while crosstown rivals Milan beat Sampdoria to take over at the summit of Serie A, albeit with Inter having a game in hand.
Nicky and Mina wonder if Napoli could have done more to take all three points after the soon-to-depart "homegrown kid" Lorenzo Insigne gave the Partenopei the lead at home against the reigning champions who have shown signs of stumbling, coming into an all-important Champions League tie against Liverpool. And is Inzaghi doing a better job with Inter than Conte did in a title winning season?
Juventus snatched a draw against Atalanta in Bergamo in a direct battle for a Champions League place, which saw a goal of the season contender from La Dea's Ukrainian long-range missile specialist Ruslan Malinovskyi.
We recap the midweek Coppa Italia quarter finals and preview the coming European ties, with the other big name battle seeing Barcelona hosting Napoli in the Europa League.
Lazio continues its yo-yo form under Maurizio Sarri and Mourinho continues his battler approach to managing Roma against the universe. Can we really manage to not get sucked in to talking about him, or will the good Jose vibes be back soon?
And we close the show with the one and only Divine Ponytail: Roberto Baggio.
