Juve and Lazio face challenges, Inter can take advantage of it


Sarri returns to Naples, derby in Rome. Conte bets on reinforcements arrival (ANSA)

Sarri's return to Naples with the fugitive Juve led by an increasingly relentless Ronaldo; the derby of the capital between a record Lazio and a ruled Rome. The 21 / a of Serie A seems tailor-made for Inter which is strengthening on the market - for Eriksen these are the decisive hours - and hosts a Cagliari in a waning phase. For the Champions fight, lights are expected on Atalanta, who fell at home with Spal, who plays at Belotti's Toro. "I want a reaction," claims Gasperini.
The Coppa Italia round of 16 expel the two Roman players and promote the protagonists of the highlight of Sunday evening.
For many years the Scudetto match, the challenge takes on different contours.
Juve is always compact and ruthless, with a sumptuous squad and a Ronaldo who always scores and is not the top scorer for now only for Immobile's super season. He returns for the first time to San Paolo Sarri, which has remained in the heart of the Neapolitans, but which, according to established practice, will be welcomed by the enemy. After Ancelotti's flop, the self-injurious affair of the fines, with Gattuso and the new signings, Napoli seems to be on a slow recovery, sanctioned by the elimination of Lazio in a game of a thousand emotions. It will be hard, however, to stop the black and white war machine (without Koulibaly, Allan and Mertens), which will have another super ex, Higuain, as a reserve card on the bench.
The knockout of Naples, also seasoned with a bit of bad luck, does not affect the super moment of Lazio (11 wins in a row, a second virtual place since he has to recover a race), never like this time favorite in the derby. Already in the first leg the tie went close to the biancazzurri, now Fonseca has given a more stable structure to Roma that sails in fourth place, but continues to lose pieces due to injuries, and the market for now does not heal the problems of the rose, especially the deficiencies in attack.
It will be up to Paulo Lopez, Smalling, Pellegrini and Dzeko to create the conditions for an opposition against Lazio well registered in all departments, with midfield and attack on strengths.
However, they will be two complicated matches for Juve and Lazio, and could benefit from Inter's Conte who tries to make up for the downturn (4 even in 6 games) with the grafts of Young, Moses, and those close to Llorente and especially Eriksen.
If all this goes to the goal, the Scudetto fight will be more difficult for Juve. However, Conte will do well not to underestimate Cagliari's desire for revenge, which has shown timid signs of recovery, winning one point after five defeats.
The other major challenge concerns a Toro, which alternates amazing feat with surprising flops, and an Atalanta that after a row of striking victories has stumbled in the internal knockout with Spal who has moved away from fourth place. The grenade will miss many owners, the guests will have the new arrivals Caldara and Czyborra on the bench.
On the hunt for confirmations, after a long crisis and a comforting recovery, there is Iachini's Fiorentina who took advantage of Cutrone's graft and the rebirth of the Church. We need the victory with a Genoa, desolately last and senmpre more entangled in the relegation zone, from which the Samp of the expert helmsman Ranieri is taking out, who receives a quiet Sassuolo after the comeback on the Bull. For the Ligurians there is the unknown of an imminent sale of the company due to Ferrero's economic problems.
The only race without classification worries is that between two excellent teams: Parma, without the attack, however, and a Udinese that Gotti has rearranged. After the Bergamo venture, the Spal di Petagna is looking for continuity of results, which hosts a fierce team like Mihajlovic and Orsolini's Bologna. With a victory the Ferrarese could overtake Lecce, awaited by a complicated trip with one of the most fit teams, Verona.
