Three, it's the magic number

The three-man defence has become the cornerstone of Antonio Conte and Simone Inzaghi’s careers and Scudetto challenge, writes Martin Mork.

The back three isn’t an unusual phenomenon in Italian football, but this weekend it will be on display in a direct clash between two of the finest tacticians in Serie A. When Antonio Conte travels to Rome for his second meeting with Simone Inzaghi this term, the two sides are likely to start with the same cards in hand and whoever finds the first Joker might take a big leap towards the Scudetto.

Ideal XI of the season so far

At the midway mark of the Serie A campaign, Tommaso Adami picks the 11 players who have truly stood out in their roles. Who makes your ideal XI?

SAMIR HANDANOVIC (Inter) - Goalkeeper

Now at his eighth season at the club, Inter's captain is once again among the top-performing goalkeepers in Italy. At 35 years of age, he has already managed to keep seven clean sheets, earning his team the title of best defence in the league. His best saves so far must be the fingertips on Joaquin Correa's finesse shot in a tight 1-0 win over Lazio and the crucial penalty save in last week's Inter 1-1 Atalanta.

Lazio's time has come

All the pieces are falling into place and Lazio have never had a better shot at a top four finish, explains Kaustubh Pandey.

Lazio have been Serie A’s best side in recent weeks. While their Europa League campaign was scuppered by throwing away leads to Cluj and Celtic, the Biancocelesti have turned that disappointed into an advantage in domestic competition.
