1.Sunday's football match at Stadio Marc Antonio Bentegodi pits together Chievo and Juventus, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the Serie A campaign.
Chievo are desperate to secure yet another Serie A survival, whilst the Bianconeri are determined to defend their Scudetto. The Mussi Volanti failed to impress in a 5-1 loss to Lazio at Stadio Olimpico in their last league match, with the team extending their winless run in the national championship to eight games. The hosts are low on confidence ahead of the visit of the "Old Lady" and it looks impossible that they will be able to shock the title holders.

2.Juve looks forward to spoil Napoli's party
Juve aim to melt Napoli's advantage in the Serie A standings and it can be a difficult task for the reigning champions, who are on a four-match winning run on the road. A hard battle is expected to be fought against the Mussi Volantis on Matchday 22. Both the teams have won 17 games this season, However Napoli is leading the points table with 54 points while Juve stands 2nd second with a slender one point deficit.

3.All eyes will be on Stadio Giuseppe Meazza when Milan and Lazio face each other in the Serie A derby.
Milan head into Sunday's football match following back-to-back wins over the likes of Crotone and Cagliari and, no doubt, they regained a much-needed confidence. The Rossoneri aim to keep on climbing the Serie A standings, but the game against the high-flying Biancocelesti will be anything but a walk in the park for Gattuso's men. Lazio have been scoring goals for fun in the national championship of late and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the Stadio San Siro showdown. A lively contest is on the cards and both teams are expected to find the net on Matchday 22. When the two teams met at Stadio Olimpico in the first half of the season Lazio hammered Milan 4-1 and there is every chance fans will see a real football festival in Milano.
