Liveblog: Serie A Wk16 Saturday

Join us for all the build-up and action as it happens from today’s Serie A games, relegation battle Brescia-Lecce, Gennaro Gattuso’s Napoli debut against Parma and the crucial Genoa Derby.

We begin at 14.00 GMT at the Stadio Rigamonti, where Brescia and Lecce go head-to-head only months after their promotion from Serie B.

It’s a chance for Mario Balotelli and returning Rondinelle coach Eugenio Corini to build momentum, but Lecce have an excellent away record.

At 17.30 GMT (postponed by 30 minutes due to storm damage on the roof), it’s all eyes on the Stadio San Paolo, where new Napoli coach Rino Gattuso makes his debut just days after replacing Carlo Ancelotti.

His opener is already a high-pressure situation, because the Partenopei are currently level in seventh place with today’s opponents Parma.

At 19.45 GMT, the tension is cranked up even higher for the Derby della Lanterna, always a fraught occasion at the best of times, let alone with both Genoa and Sampdoria in the relegation zone.
