Serie A Previews: Welcome back!

It’s back with a bang including the Juventus-Roma Scudetto clash on Sunday and Lazio-Inter completing Monday’s action.

Serie A returns after the Christmas break with Week 18, click here for previews of every single match.

Chievo-Cagliari opens 2014 on Sunday at 14.00 GMT, followed by Fiorentina-Livorno and the 19.45 GMT kick-off Juventus-Roma.

Only five points separate the two teams at the top of the table and this could prove to be a title decider.

Monday is La Befana, the Italian celebration in which children receive candy if they were good and coal if they were bad.

Napoli will be hoping to give Sinisa Mihajlovic his first taste of coal, as he is still unbeaten on the Sampdoria bench and visits the San Paolo at 11.30 GMT.

Most of the fixtures are on Monday afternoon at 14.00, including Milan-Atalanta, Parma-Torino and Udinese-Verona.

The round concludes on Monday at 17.30 GMT with Edy Reja making his return to the Lazio bench against a revitalised Inter.
