There will be a handful of interesting fixtures in Italy with Roma vs Fiorentina set to capture the public’s attention on Saturday night. The Giallorossi are determined to hit 29 points and finish Matchday 16 above fourth-placed Fiorentina.
On Sunday, Milan will open proceedings with a match away to Torino. The visitors, in seventh place, are looking to push further into the top half of the table. Meanwhile, Juventus will need at least a draw away to Palermo in order to maintain the leadership in the Italian Serie A.
Things have remained the same between Torino and Juventus fans, despite them not sharing the same stadium anymore. The animosity and competition between the two sides is still strong in Turin, they have not played each other in three seasons.
Juventus Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal is injured and he will be replaced with Paul Pogba in the center.

Anyone who thought the Rossoneri of Milan were dead in the league should think again. Led by the heroics of El Shaarawy, Milan are experiencing a revival. They could temporarily jump a couple of ranks from the ninth position to the seventh with victory over eighth-placed Catania. This match will kick off at 14:45 EST on Friday.
There will be only one Serie A match on Saturday with Juventus hosting Torino. The hosts tried everything against the Rossoneri last weekend but lack of luck in front of goal saw them lose 1-0. Juve will be expected to defeat Torino who recorded their seventh draw of the campaign against Fiorentina on November 25.
The Rossoneri are gradually finding back their groove. They played with confidence, pace and creativity in last weekend’s 1-0 victory against Juventus. Looking at the performance Milan put in that encounter, it would be hard for anyone to accept that they are only 10th in the Italian Serie A table.
However, statistics tell that Allegri’s men have a lot of room for improvement. In their latest Serie A fixture, the Rossoneri had a pass success below the 80 per cent mark whereas they had no more than 39 per cent of ball possession.
Juventus travel to Milan on Sunday under different circumstances from last season, when the two teams were fighting for the title. The present day scenario is far different from last season’s photo finish. Milan trail Juve by 17 points and a title challenge would come across as a nocuous suggestion.
This Milan side is still without its regular fullbacks. Abate and Antonini are still side-lined due to injuries. Pato is a doubtful starter and Suley Muntari and Didac remain long term absentees.
Two of the most legendary soccer clubs in the world -- Italian Serie A’s AC Milan and Juventus – meet this Sunday, November 25 at 2:40 p.m. ET to continue their battle to edge up in one of the most tightly contested seasons in years.
It remains to be seen whether rising AC Milan star Stephan El Shaarawy can continue his league-leading scoring drive for the Rossoneri or if Juventus striker Stephan Lichtsteiner will continue to deliver for the team.

Juventus are finally free from worrying about their unbeaten run. Without the unbeaten in 49 games record at the back of their minds they can now rotate the squad more often, starting with the game against newly promoted side Pescara.
After a 3-1 loss to Inter Milan at home they recouped some of their lost morale and brushed aside Danish side Nordsjaelland in the Champions League mid-week.
Juventus are close to full strength in terms of numbers sparring Simone Pepe. Conte can chose to play the same side that played mid-week or rotate the squad and rest a few players for the home match against Lazio next week.
After a disastrous beginning to their Serie A campaign this season, Milan have finally found their form, and will be looking for what would be their first successive home victory of the season against Chievo.
Milan, who have beaten Chievo in their last ten meetings, showed their fighting spirit in their dramatic 2-2 draw with Palermo on Tuesday.
After a mixed start to the season Andrea Stramaccioni’s side have won the last six games in the league since their 2-0 loss to Sienna. Stramaccioni usually fields a strong midfield in a 3-5-2 formation with most of the attacking responsibilities left to the forwards. This allows opposite teams to control possession while Inter sits deep in their own half absorbing the pressure.
Cassano had a terrific start at Inter and he already scored 5 goals in seven league appearances. And he has combined well with Diego Milito at the front. The duo have 10 league goals and six assists between them and they will prove to be a handful for Juve defence come Saturday. Juventus defender Andrea Barzagali said he was afraid of facing Argentine striker Diego Milito.
