Match day 16 welcomes a main event of Juventus vs. AC Milan. Will Juventus overcome fatigue to best scudetto contenders Milan? or will the visiting Rossoneri, overcome injury with a minus-Galacticos lineup (David Beckham has not yet arrived and Ronaldinho doubtful joining Gennaro Gattuso) to reassert themselves as the true rivials of Internazionale?
Other matches to watch out for,
Roma vs. Cagliari and Udinese vs. Lazio.
Roma vs Cagliari
Roma having turned a new corner will be flying high after winning their Champions League Group. Roma manager Spalletti has finally got his players coordinating their actions and playing that type of football we all love to see. Cagliari on the other hand have been quietly moving toward a top 10 pole position (primarily on the back of their home performance) with goals by Acquafresca.
Udinese vs Lazio
Udinese welcome back striker Antonio Di Natale after his suspension and red card incident against Chievo on match day fourteen. Udinese are riding a 5 game losing streak and will be hoping to end it come Sunday against Lazio at the Stadio Friuli but don’t hold your breath as Lazio have plans of their own and normally a 3 prong attack which is simply deadly. Mauro Zarate and captain Tommaso Rocchi are healthy however forward Goran Pandev is doubtful, but even without Pandev I’m of the opinion the Biancocelesti will be to much for Udinese, keep an eye out for Pasquale Foggia to set the pace in the Lazio midfield, love that guy.
