Liveblog: Serie A Week 19

Join us for all the build-up and action from today’s 10 Serie A games, including Juventus v Sampdoria, Empoli-Inter, Lazio-Torino, Parma-Roma, Napoli-Bologna and Milan-SPAL.

If you are on a mobile device or tablet, then follow the Liveblog HERE.

We begin at 11.30 GMT in Turin, where leaders Juventus can set a new all-time record for points achieved in the first half of the season.

However, they are fresh from a draw with Atalanta and welcome a Sampdoria side in great shape, including Fabio Quagliarella on target in eight consecutive rounds.

At 14.00 GMT, there are seven simultaneous games and you can keep track of every one via our Liveblog.

Inter visit Empoli after their controversial victory over Napoli and have Radja Nainggolan back from his lack of discipline.

Roma try to build some momentum against Gervinho’s Parma, while Lazio-Torino and Sassuolo-Atalanta are head-to-head battles for European places.

Chievo v Frosinone is a showdown between the bottom two, while Udinese-Cagliari is another relegation dogfight.

At 17.00 GMT, second-placed Napoli host struggling Bologna without suspended Lorenzo Insigne and Kalidou Koulibaly, trying to shake off a tense week.

Finally, at 19.30 GMT there’s the last Serie A game of 2018, as Milan must beat SPAL convincingly or most likely see Coach Gennaro Gattuso fired.

The Rossoneri have not scored in four rounds, their longest dry streak since 1984, and Gonzalo Higuain is desperate to break his eight-game competitive drought.
