Inter's real escape towards the Scudetto is approaching the first pitfall: Gasperini's fearsome Atalanta arrives in the postponement on Monday, advancing at a charging pace.
But it is not certain that Conte will take the field worried about his +6 advantage because his direct opponents have complicated crossings: the troubled Milan of Pioli play at the home of Juric's fluid Verona (and go to the 'fatal' Verona, where lost a famous Scudetto, it's never a walk in the park) while Pirlo's Juve, with an eye on Tuesday's basic Champions League match against Porto, receives a slightly packed Lazio but still able to plan the feat.
"The match against Juve comes at the right time," says Simone Inzaghi.
"We must be ready to never make mistakes - Pirlo's words - we are still competing on everything" Rome and Naples favored against Genoa and Bologna, but for different reasons it will not be a clear path that awaits Fonseca and the restless Gattuso.
A pleasant show is expected then between two calm and fit teams like Udinese and Sassuolo while everything else revolves around the relegation zone.
The freshmen under braking Spezia and Benevento (who have not won in nine games) cannot afford other stops, such as Fiorentina without Ribery which risks falling if they do not overcome the penultimate Parma, but which showed signs of recovery with Inter.
Last resort for Crotone entrusted to Cosmi who must win with a bull killed by the covid (Nicola has 14 elements with him) and who must recover two races.
Sampdoria, after an equal comeback in the derby, receives Cagliari who with Semplici have found two victories but need points to get away from the relegation zone.
Seven teams in the Champions League, with two still dreaming of the Europa League, translate into cartel clashes at every round.
But the six victories in a row and a staff at full disposal also due to the lack of cup commitments indicate Inter as a team to beat.
Lukaku drags, but when needed there is also Sanchez who unravels complicated skeins.
Now there will be a clash of truths with Atalanta who have started marching again at a great level and have another week to think about Real.
With Muriel, Ilicic, Gosens in great shape, the iron midfield will be able to oppose the leaders who, if they overcome this trap too, it will be difficult to catch up.
Also because Milan without Ibra, Calhanoglu and Bennacer recently convinced only with Roma.
If he were to lose with Juric's Verona square he could take a dangerous path.
Juve is fine, they win but they don't have Betancourt and Ronaldo is tired.
The season is played in four days because the 10 points (7 if they beat Napoli in recovery) are many and would become too many in case of no victory against Lazio.
Inzaghi is in a difficult moment, Immobile has missed an important penalty, it would take a great match to reverse the trend.
Roma lost Veretout but found Diawara and Smalling.
While waiting for Dzeko, he tries to reiterate his superiority over the 'little ones' by facing Genoa which, however, with Ballardini is a team that is worth the middle class.
There will be the three ex Destro, Strootman and Zappacosta and it will be a race able to entertain and give emotions.
The task of a Napoli on the verge of a nervous breakdown is more complicated.
Insigne who takes it out with his teammates, Gattuso in the balance chasing Mario Rui, the president less and less in tune with the coach.
All factors that could return in favor of the sly Mihajlovic who, after the performance in Sanremo, shows up with his Bologna to try to exploit the delicate situation of the hosts and snatch an unexpected result.
