Only Covid manages to slow down the race towards Conte's Inter Milan championship.

Four positives in two days and a stop to tomorrow's match against Sassuolo, we talk about it again after the national team break and the postponement causes controversy among the Juventus people.

It is therefore up to Milan and Juve not to miss the opportunity to get closer, even if it has never happened that a team has lost the tricolor with a lead of seven points with 11 games to go.


    The Rossoneri, who re-present Ibra and Calhanoglu but lost Romagnoli, Leao and Calabria, must deal with the knockout with Napoli and the bitter exclusion in the Europa League with Pogba's United, able to make Pioli lose his temper too who apologized for the insults to Solskjaer, and will find a Fiorentina reassured by the success of Benevento and by Vlahovic's hat-trick.

Pirlo's Juve's task is easier as they face Benevento in crisis that Inzaghi is unable to balance.

But the two key games concern the Champions race: after the defeat in Parma and the brilliant victory in Kiev, Fonseca's Roma double face, who today drew Ajax from the Uefa urn for the quarterfinals of the Europa League, receives the relaunched Napoli di Gattuso in a decisive challenge, and poisoned by the controversy for the postponement of the recovery of the Neapolitan match with Juve.


    Atalanta out of the Champions League wants to secure fourth place but pays a visit to a tough team like Juric's Verona.

Inzaghi's Lazio is still hoping to join the sprint, as they are on the road and are taking risks with a Udinese in excellent condition and who have not lost in six matches.

Everything else pertains to the race to safety.

Parma must win tonight with Ballardini's strong Genoa to follow up on the victory over Roma.

There are signs of recovery also from Joao Pedro's Cagliari who will attempt an away shot to choke the Spezia which deflated after the victory over Milan a month ago.

It looks like another Toro who has reassembled Sassuolo in recovery with a brace from Zaza, but now he has to make a result at Sampdoria who are in calm waters but have only won one of their last eight games.

If Parma, Turin and Cagliari were to make a result, the saving rate would rise considerably, involving teams that until now seemed calm.

The situation of Crotone is more complicated, which have lost 20 of the 27 games played so far, but if they manage to beat Bologna they will at least be able to make an arduous recovery.


    Milan left a good impression and the qualification to United of a Pogba that transforms when he feels the Italian air.

Ibra is back, Tomori is a certainty and must be redeemed, but Pioli knows that a knockout with his former team, the Fiorentina of a wild Vlahovic, is enough to hear the breath of the five teams chasing and pawing.

The closest is Juve, which on the one hand thinks of a future marked by Chiesa, Morata and Rabiot, wondering what Ronaldo will do, on the other, meditates on a run-up to Inter that passes through the direct challenge of the penultimate, but which a success without discussions with Benevento in crisis, which blocked her on par in the first leg.

But the wait is above all for the Rome-Naples derby: Fonseca has a united and talented group that still has too many defensive distractions, but which has the mission of winning the first match against a great one, under penalty of being removed from the Champions League.

Pellegrini against Zielinski, Dzeko against Osimhen are some of the comparisons that will ignite the game, with Gattuso who wants to leave at the end of the season with his head held high.

Verona is the worst team to face for an Atalanta returning from the fatigue and frustration of the honorable exit from the Champions League, but the Bergamo players are the favorites for the race in fourth place.

Finally, Lazio cannot afford other stumbles, pursuing hopefully but struggling with problems of various kinds: the snare of Udinese on the ball by De Paul and Llorente is, however, a severe test to pass.
