Milan eyes Juve upset

Turin, Italy (Sports Network) - AC Milan will be facing its third straight top-four opponent on Sunday when the club hits the road to face Serie A leaders Juventus.

After draws with fellow top-four sides Fiorentina and Napoli in the past two weeks, Milan is aiming to knock off Juve, which sits 11 points clear at the top of the league with six games to play.

Juve's 2-0 victory over Lazio on Monday moved the club a bit closer to the Scudetto, and they can take another big step toward retaining the title with three more points on Sunday.

Milan, meanwhile, will be looking to solidify its hold on third place and the final Champions League spot from Serie A with a four-point lead on Fiorentina.

The Viola will host bottom-half Torino in an effort to close the gap on the Rossoneri, while second-place Napoli hosts Cagliari with the club hoping to extend its four-match unbeaten streak.

At the opposite end of the table, 16th-place Chievo visits 17th-place Siena with the home side sitting just two points above the relegation places.

Palermo sits in 18th and brings a three-match unbeaten run into its game at Catania on Sunday, while 19th-place Genoa also is within two points of safety and attempts to snap a winless streak of seven games on Saturday at home against Atalanta.

Last-place Pescara has lost eight straight games to see its survival hopes fading quickly and the club visits Roma on Sunday, while Udinese and Lazio both harbor European ambitions and get together at the Stadio Friuli.

Bologna and Sampdoria are separated by one point in the middle of the table and they will square off at the Stadio Renato Della'Ara and Inter Milan, which has lost four of its last five games, hosts Parma.
