Liveblog: Serie A Week 18

Join us for all the build-up and action as it happens from the full Serie A Boxing Day schedule, including Frosinone v Milan, Atalanta v Juventus, Roma v Sassuolo and Inter v Napoli.

We begin at 11.30 GMT at the Stadio Benito Stirpe, as relegation-threatened Frosinone with new Coach Marco Baroni host a Milan outfit on the verge of sacking Gennaro Gattuso after slipping out of the top four.

At 14.00 GMT, Winter Champions Juventus have a difficult trip to Bergamo against high-flying Atalanta, who are back in the race for Europe.

Fiorentina and Parma go head-to-head for top six ambitions, Cagliari-Genoa is a relegation dogfight and Sampdoria try to end Chievo’s impressive unbeaten run.

There’s a family affair at the Stadio Dall’Ara, as brothers Pippo and Simone Inzaghi face off on the touchline the day after Christmas Dinner with Bologna v Lazio.

At 17.00 GMT, there are another three matches to enjoy. Roma face a surprisingly tight encounter with Eusebio Di Francesco’s former club Sassuolo, Torino welcome Empoli and SPAL v Udinese is a relegation dogfight.

The unusual Boxing Day round – or Santo Stefano, as it’s known in Italy – concludes with a truly fascinating fixture.

Third-placed Inter host Napoli in second at 19.30 GMT, as this result could change the title battle or consolidate it as a two-horse race.
