Check out our review of the 29th Serie A round, as we list the hottest talking points from the latest action in top-flight Italian football.

Serie A has moved into its final 10 rounds of the 2019-20 campaign, as we had Gameweek 29 on the schedule in the past three days.

All three title contenders – Juventus, Lazio and Inter earned the three points this round, with Juve keeping their four-point lead on the top of the table.

On the bottom, Sampdoria secured a crucial win over Lecce going four points clear of the Wolves in the safe zone, while SPAL threw away a two-goal lead against AC Milan, only to collect a point from their game against the Rossoneri.

Check out the top three talking points from the latest action of Italian football.

The Ronaldo-Dybala partnership is reaching its peak

Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala both scored, guiding Juventus to a 3-1 victory at Genoa on Tuesday evening.

They have both found the net in all three games since the return of top-flight Italian football, and scored in five of their last seven Serie A outings.

The partnership between Ronaldo and Dybala seems to be reaching its peak, as the duo is becoming Juve’s driving force in the race for a ninth consecutive Scudetto this season.

Alexis Sanchez is back!

Alexis Sanchez finally reminded us of his old days, showing a MOTM performance in Inter’s 6-0 thrashing of Brescia back on Wednesday.

The Chilean forward scored from the penalty spot and added two assists, as he contributed in three Serie A goals in one game – as much as he had contributed in the whole season up until then.

His destiny is yet to be decided though, as Alexis is still a Manchester United player, but the Red Devils will be looking to offload him in the following transfer period.

Atalanta to play in Champions League next season

Atalanta remains the most pleasant surprise in top-flight Italian football, as they defeated Napoli 2-0, noting their 10th consecutive victory in all competitions.

Goals from Mario Pasalic and Robin Gosens earned big three points for the Black and Blues, as they moved 12 points clear of fifth-placed Roma, who lost 2-0 at home to Udinese.

It now seems that only a miracle could prevent Gian Piero Gasperini and his boys from booking their place in the Champions League for a second successive year.
