Women’s Serie A: Inter win with Chawinga. Milan and Fiorentina ok

The Malawian striker knocked Pomigliano down with a brace: he had a hand in 50% of Nerazzurri goals. Asllani relieves Ganz (goal after 37 seconds). Viola avalanche on Parma

Inter hadn’t won since 15 October, who until then had worn the pink jersey of the leaders. Thanks to an almost perfect journey, made up of 16 points out of the first 18 available. Poker against Milan, however, the last joy, because then the Nerazzurri will remain without successes for the following five games (three knockouts, two draws), helplessly observing Roma’s escape at the top of the standings. For this reason in the advance of the 12th day against Pomigliano it was forbidden to make mistakes. To bend the bells, returning from two victories in a row at home, the usual Chawinga took care of it, with his second brace in the league after the one on the second day against Juventus. No, she never dropped. To smile again, Inter relied on their greatest security.


The Malawian forward is in fact the key to the Nerazzurri. With today’s goals they score nine goals and five assists in Serie A, practically having a hand in 50% of the goals scored by Rita Guarino’s girls (28). She unblocked it in the 53rd minute, receiving Sonstevold’s back to goal and then turning on Apicella and throwing the ball towards goal. The doubling in the 76th minute, with a header ahead of Rizza (Ana Lucia Martinez’s 2-1 in the 94th minute was useless). 26 years old, Chawinga is absolutely to be considered the coup of the year. Inter took her on loan last summer from Chinese club Wuhan Jianghan University, where Tabitha had moved in 2018 after happy years in Sweden (39 goals in 14 games with Krokom as soon as she came of age, then 84 in 70 in Kvarnsvedens ). The third of five daughters, she started kicking in Malawi, where her team had a maximum of four balls to play with during training. Lack of resources limited the technical work and made it difficult to hone the individual look, but Chawinga’s natural talent made all the difference.

Decide Asllani

Milan’s 2022 in chiaroscuro also ends with a victory. On the Sassuolo field, which will no longer be the fourth force in the championship like last year but which in any case hadn’t lost in five games, Kosovare Asllani’s lightning goal was enough, which after just 37 seconds already gave Ganz’s team the lead, anticipating all on the excellent assist from Mascarello. Seventh goal in 11 Serie A matches for the Swedish striker, who takes his teammates on his shoulders after the painful defeat against Roma (Sassuolo dangerous on a couple of occasions and furious over an alleged penalty not granted 15′ from the end). For her, a star of women’s football with over 300,000 followers on Instagram after a career with PSG, City and Real, it is the seventh goal in 11 league games. No AC Milan player has done better.

Avalanche purple

Ahead of Inter (fourth) and Milan (fifth) is Fiorentina who, awaiting Sunday’s direct clash between Roma and Juventus, momentarily overtake the black and whites in second place. After the victory over Como, another success comes against a newly promoted team, that is Parma. The final was 0-4, not bad considering that the Viola had never scored so few goals (17 goals) in the first 11 games of a championship. Johannsdottir, the Icelandic midfielder signed by Eintracht in the summer, released it in the 39th minute. The class of 2000, at their first joy in the tournament, makes the best use of Longo’s assist. In the 57th minute Jelencic lands in the Kajan area, who makes no mistake from the penalty spot. At that point Parma, who appeared galvanized by the draws with Inter and Sassuolo, let go and were also pierced by Boquete and again by Johansdottir, who won everything in Iceland making his debut at just 16 and who now wants to write the its history also in Italy.
