And over in Florence, the coveted Dusan Vlahovic is in action when the Fiorentina tries to get back to the European places with a result against Udinese.
Sunday January 6th
Less than three days after Fiorentina v Udinese and Juventus v N -oli ended, Serie A will start again in a full round of Matchday 21 games on BT Sport.
Here, too, there are two games at each of the five kick-off times and the action begins on Sunday morning with two games at 11.30 a.m.
The champions AC Milan adorn the Pier Luigi Penzo stadium, while Stefano Pioli’s men travel to a Venezia team hovering just above the drop zone.
At the same time, Sassuolo will try to close the g – to Empoli when it comes to Florence in mid-table, which went the way of the guests in the return leg in October.
The 1:30 p.m. clash in Turin saw the strikers battle with Vlahovic and Fiorentina facing Torino and Andrea Belotti, while Bologna visits Cagliari to further reduce the hosts’ chances of remaining in the league.
Two hours later, two title challengers are in action: Luciano Spalletti’s N -oli hosts Sampdoria, who can deduct points from the big boys while Atalanta is out in Udinese.
There is a huge draw at the Stadio Olimpico at 5.30 p.m., where Roma are looking for revenge against Juventus in the return leg in October for a 1-0 defeat by The Old Lady. It looks like a competitive game to win the chances of both sides to rush back into the fight for the title.
While the action is on in the c -ital, there is a tie at the other end of the table. Genoa, occupying the last relegation zone, are trying to get 17th-placed Spezia into trouble when they greet the Little Eagles at the Luigis Ferraris Stadium.
And last but not least, BT Sport’s A-Bonanza series rounds off with two decisive kick-offs at 7.45 p.m., which will have a major impact on the summit and the end of the table.
The headline comes from the San Siro, where defending champions and leaders Inter are being put to the test against a side from Lazio that have played some notable games this season.
The team from the c -ital have scored 14 goals in five games, including a 4-0 loss to N -oli and a 4-4 thriller against Udinese.
Finally, the Kellerboys Salernitana are desperately looking for a way out of trouble when they take on Hellas Verona in hopes of just a third win of the season.
