Serie A resumes

Sunday, January 05, 2014

ROME - Serie A resumes with a bang Sunday (Monday Fiji time) with Juventus hosting Roma.

Two-time defending champions Juventus hold a five-point lead over Roma, with Napoli 10 points back in third.

There are three matches scheduled for Sunday with the other seven games to be played Monday.

Juventus have scored the most goals and Roma conceded the fewest entering the top-of-the-table clash at the Juventus Stadium.

Juventus have won nine straight matches and with one more victory can match Roma's 10-match winning streak to start the season.

While Roma are unbeaten, the Giallorossi have struggled since their excellent start, winning only two of their past seven matches.

But this match marks the first time this season that Roma coach Rudi Garcia has all of his strikers healthy, with captain Francesco Totti ready to start again after recovering from an injured right hamstring.

Before the holiday break, Mattia Destro scored three goals in as many matches after he, too, returned from several months out with injury.
