Being a football pundit has to be one of the best jobs in the world, right? You actually get paid to talk about a sport you are passionate about and share your opinion with millions of fans every week! Well, that is certainly the case for DAZN pundit and co-commentator Vincenzo D’Orta. Vincenzo has made himself something of a cult hero in the DACH community for his incredibly engaging, passionate commentary and in-depth analysis of ‘the beautiful game.’ In the video below, we meet Vincenzo and get a glimpse into the life of a footballing pundit.
The concept was put together by our social team in Berlin, and filmed by the production team in Munich. The idea behind the video is to give fans of both Serie A and DAZN an insight into the world of a DAZN pundit. We watch Vincenzo as he is commentating on a massive match between sixth-placed Inter Milan and second-placed AS Roma, surrounded by multiple screens and pages of facts and statistics about the teams. What is evident from the video is the sheer passion and excitement Vincenzo has for football and his commentary. His wealth of knowledge of Serie A, as well as his incredible reactions to goals have led to him becoming one of the most acclaimed footballing pundits on social media in the DACH regions.
The game itself was a thrilling one, with second-placed AS Roma prevailing over hosts Inter Milan 3-1. Two stunning goals from Belgian international Radja Nainggolan set Luciano Spalletti’s side on their way to victory, and make sure you listen out for Vincenzo’s incredible reaction to the goal! Mauro Icardi slid in at the far post to cut the arrears in the 81st minute and give Inter hope, before Diego Perotti’s penalty sealed the game for Roma and handed them an impressive away victory, their eighth in the last nine Serie A games.
Roma’s victory leaves things wide open in Serie A. With just twelve games to go, usual suspects Juventus top the table by seven points. Roma sit in second place and seem assured of a Champions League spot for next season. They will, however, maintain hopes of catching the leaders, especially with a gargantuan clash between the two sides on May 14th at the Stadio Olimpico. Fans will be able to watch the climax to this thrilling Serie A season live in all countries that DAZN is available in.
