Liveblog: Serie A Super Saturday

Join us for the build-up and action as it happens from today’s Serie A games, as Napoli host Frosinone, Roma visit Cagliari and unpredictable Lazio v Sampdoria.

We begin at 14.00 GMT, as Napoli no doubt watched Juventus beat Inter 1-0 last night and know taking on Frosinone at the Stadio San Paolo is a huge opportunity.

A victory would keep them within eight points of the leaders, but also leave third-placed Inter six points adrift.

However, success is not to be taken for granted, as Carlo Ancelotti’s men risk distraction from the upcoming Champions League decider with Liverpool.

They were already held to a goalless draw by bottom of the table Chievo a couple of weeks ago and Frosinone have been showing a definite upturn in form lately.

At 17.00 GMT, Roma’s injury crisis just keeps growing as they face a tricky trip to Cagliari, where the Sardinians are unbeaten so far this season.

Patrik Schick is again the only real option to lead the attack and Eusebio Di Francesco’s side have just one win from their last six Serie A games.

This evening at 19.30 GMT, Lazio and Sampdoria go head-to-head for European ambitions, with only five points separating them in the table.

The Aquile dropped out of the top six after a run of poor form, while the Blucerchiati are getting back on track after a Genoa Derby draw and 4-1 victory over Bologna.

There will be a minute’s silence before kick-off in all Serie A games this weekend following the death of Gigi Radice, the last Coach to win the Scudetto with Torino in 1976.
