Scudetto rivals Juventus and Roma clash on Sunday, with both teams desperate for all three points to gain a psychological advantage over their opponents.
The defending champions have won all five of their Serie A games so far this season without conceding a single goal. However, they suffered their first setback under Massimiliano Allegri in mid-week following their 1-0 loss to Atletico Madrid in Spain in their Champions League encounter.
It remains to be seen whether or not that has an effect on the Old Lady, but given their dominance domestically, they will be expected to bounce back immediately and put on a strong performance.
Allegri will be without Andrea Barzagli and Romulo, while Spanish striker Alvaro Morata faces a late fitness test. However, he will likely start on the bench with Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente leading the line.
Meanwhile, Roma have looked equally as impressive this season but have surpassed their rivals in terms of entertainment. Despite numerous new faces arriving this summer, Rudi Garcia has the Giallorossi playing expansive football which has seen them go undefeated in all competitions so far.
Daniele De Rossi, Kevin Strootman, Salih Ucan, Leandro Castan, David Astori and Federico Balzaretti are all out with injury, but such is the depth of this squad now, they will be able to adjust without them.
Francesco Totti will likely lead the way with Gervinho and Alessandro Florenzi flanking him, but they will have a task on their hands as history suggests that Juventus have had the better of the duel in recent times.
Juve won 3-0 in Turin and 1-0 in Rome last season, and have won the last three home games against the Romans while conceding just one goal in that time.
Nevertheless, this promises to be a highly entertaining game for the neutrals, and both teams will be desperate to secure all three points.
