Lecce stun Lazio, Belotti and De Ketelaere refind form
The 2023/24 Serie A season is finally underway, and we didn't need to wait long for surprises to be sprung. We are here to talk through all of the Serie A Matchday 1 action.
After Napoli had overcome an early scare at Frosinone to win and Inter subsequently saw off Monza, both AS Roma and Lazio slipped up on Sunday against Salernitana and Lecce respectively. There was good news for the Lupi though as Andrea Belotti ended his 15-month wait for a Serie A goal, scoring twice in an excellent performance, but Lazio threw away a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 in Salento, conceding twice after the 85th minute.
Elsewhere, Charles De Ketelaere enjoyed a dream debut for Atalanta, helping them to a 2-0 win at Sassuolo, and Juventus started well with a comprehensive 3-0 win away to Udinese.
Fiorentina won 4-1 at Genoa and Hellas Verona beat Empoli 1-0. Bologna vs AC Milan and Torino vs Cagliari are Monday night games, so you'll have to wait until the bonus podcast this week to hear those discussed.
To discuss it all, Conor Clancy hosts Euan Burns, Kevin Pogorzelski and Vito Doria.
