Roma upset Inter at San Siro despite what Simone Inzaghi described as Inter's best performance of the season. Is he just making excuses and deflecting? We break down what's going wrong for the nerazzurri, with a look toward their coming match against Barcelona in the Champions League.

Mina and Nicky have a big debate (read: disagreement) about whether Jose Mourinho made the right choice to leave Tammy Abraham on the bench, but do agree that Chris Smalling's performance in the heart of Roma's defense, as well as scoring the match winner, was sublime.

Juventus get a much needed win after not winning a match for the whole of September, and Mina was even impressed with Dusan Vlahovic!

A crazy end to Empoli v Milan with three stoppage time goals saw the rossoneri take the spoils, leaving us in no doubt that Rafael Leao is world class. Can Milan beat both Chelsea mid-week and then Juventus at the weekend?

Is Napoli currently the best team in Serie A? Nicky compares them to season 1 of a famous TV drama series, where every week someone new steps up to take the lead role.

Atalanta's defense is singled out in a new Serie A sub-plot in the evolving story of the little club from Bergamo who could... and its manager Gian Piero Gasperini who makes them into something far greater than the sum of their parts.

All of that, plus a round-up of other matches, a preview of mid-week European action to come, and for our Australian listeners: don't miss Nicky Bandini on Stan Sport's coverage of Chelsea v Milan with a special Serie A Chronicles guest from last season, Mark Bosnich.
