AC Milan will be keen to extend their margin at the top of the Serie A when we travel to the promoted Lecce on Sunday.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side will be keen to atone for their 4-4 draw at home to eighth-placed Udinese last weekend, as Napoli cut Milan’s lead on top of the table to three points with a 3-0 triumph over Juventus.

The league leaders last travelled to Lecce’s Stadio Comunale by del Mare for a Serie A match in 2008, and were held by a 90th-minute equaliser from the hosts.

Striker Ronaldinho, who left Milan for Brazilian club Flamengo on Monday, had earlier opened the scoring for the Rossoneri.

Lecce will be hoping for a similar performance on Sunday to their brave 2-1 away win over the third-placed Lazio last weekend, yet the club is still delicately poised in 18th place in the drop zone.

Juventus have gone three games without a win in Serie A action but have the ideal opponent to get back to their winning ways when we host last-placed Bari on Sunday.

Second-last Brescia will hope to break a three-game losing streak when we welcome Parma to the Stadio Mario Rigamonti.

Catania have won one of their past two, and Chievo none, as the 16th-placed side prepares to host the 14th team in a relegation six-pointer.

Lazio will have the Lecce loss fresh on their minds when we host ninth-placed Sampdoria.

Cesena are 17th in the league, yet are unbeaten in three games leading in to their match against the fourth-placed Roma.

Genoa can move to within one point of eighth-placed Udinese with a win over their mid-table rivals, after Cagliari hosts Palermo in Sunday’s early kick-off.

On Saturday, European champions Inter Milan can secure their third win on the trot when we welcome 10th-placed Bologna to the San Siro.

Second-placed Napoli will host Fiorentina in the early game.
