Italy: Serie A Weekend Preview

Inter Milan's struggles at the beginning of the season are a fast-fading memory as they go into Sunday's derby against AC Milan. A few months ago Inter were on the verge of falling into the relegation zone, but the Nerazzurri have hit back with a vengeance and last weekend's 5-0 triumph over Parma was their seventh win in the last eight league games. Unbeaten Juventus are level with Milan on 37 points and could take over sole possession of first place if they beat Cagliari in Sardinia on Sunday and Milan fail to take all three points. Lazio, who are fourth, were awful in a 4-0 hammering at Siena last week and will be looking to show a huge improvement in Sunday's game against Atalanta. Fiorentina finally ended their dismal run on the road with a 3-0 triumph at Novara last time out. The result was the Viola's first win away from home in the league since April 23 and they host bottom side Lecce on Sunday.
