There is an absolute cracker to conclude this weekend's fixtures in Serie A, with the Rome derby between Roma and Lazio.

The match takes place on Monday night at the Stadio Olimpico, the home of both clubs, so there will be no complaints about home disadvantage. 

The Derby della Capitale is one the fiercest around and is the biggest game of the weekend in Italy considering the two sides are just three points apart and chasing European places.

Fiorentina host AC Milan with the home side hoping to claw some points back against the Milan club who are currently six points in front.

Mario Balotelli and co will be hoping to put pressure on second placed Napoli who face Genoa, with the latter are languishing perilously close the relegation zone in 17th.

League leaders Juventus face bottom club Pescara who have not won a game since the start of January and, in contrast, the Serie A champions have won their last four in the league.

Inter Milan welcome struggling Atalanta to the San Siro hoping to maintain their position of which they are currently occupying a Europa League place.

Elsewhere Torino travel to Bologna who have won their last three on the bounce, Catania face Cagliari in a mid-table clash and Palermo will hope to potentially move out of the drop zone when they meet Sampdoria.

Finally 18th placed Siena host Parma while Udinese welcome Chievo to the Stadio Friuli.
