AC Milan (2nd, 48 pts), under pressure after dropping three points at home after a crazy match against La Spezia (1-2) on Monday, hosts Juventus (5th, 41 pts) during an already crucial duel in the battle for the Champions League on Sunday evening.
The Bianconeri, after having exchanged their difficult start to the year in the league rather well, have the opportunity to return to the fight if they win at San Siro.
Juve have not (yet) recruited a new striker despite Federico Chiesa’s long-term injury but are full of confidence in the Italian Cup on Tuesday against Sampdoria (4-1).
In the event of a misstep by the Rossoneri, Naples (3rd, 46 pts) can become the new dolphin of Inter Milan (50 pts), which hosts Venice on Saturday (6:00 p.m.).
On condition, however, for Victor Osimhen and his family not to stumble on Sunday in the Campania derby against Salernitana, a red lantern still diminished by the cases of Covid-19 (8 positives on Wednesday).
Atalanta Bergamo (4th, 42 pts), with their game late, can also benefit from a misstep from Milan if they negotiate a never-easy trip to the Stadio olimpico on Saturday night against Lazio Rome (8th) .
