LONDON, April 12 (www.DailySoccer.com)


Juventus' clash with AC Milan takes centre stage this weekend as Serie A moves into the final four rounds.

The Bianconeri were handed a get-out-of-jail free card last weekend when Inter amazingly lost 2-1 at home to Atalanta and Roma only drew with relegated Venezia. Juve's crushing 4-0 defeat of Perugia sent out a message that they have by no means given up this title race, despite the fact that many wrote them off following that poor performance against Lazio.

The one constant, even throughout the Bianconeri's often wretched form, has been David Trezeguet. The Frenchman has snapped up chances this season like it's going out of fashion. From that wasteful figure that we witnessed at Euro 2000, he has turned into one of the world's most feared strikers.

Milan are a desperate side at the moment. They are straining at the leash to secure that fourth remaining Champions League place, after another season of under-achievement. Manuel Rui Costa has almost symbolised their campaign in many ways. He arrived with so much promise, but failed to deliver following a series of niggling injuries.

There is little question that Carlo Ancelotti's job is safe for now, but one wonders whether it will be quite so secure should he start next season with a run of three or four games without a win. The Milan board have been quick to ring the changes over the last year or so and who would bet against Ancelotti joining Alberto Zaccheroni and Fatih Terim in the list of coaches whose reign was brought to a premature end?

Roma face Parma this weekend in a massive clash for both clubs. Parma are a team on the edge of safety but the precipice of danger. Last week they beat relegation rivals Udinese 2-0 courtesy of goals from Aimo Diana and Hakan Suker, but despite this win they are just three points above the drop zone. Roma on the other hand are just two points off the title pace but couldn't take full advantage of Inter's slip last week as they only drew 2-2 with Venezia. Controversy raged after that encounter, with representatives of Inter and Juventus far from happy that the Giallorossi had escaped defeat courtesy of two penalties in the last three minutes. Roma president Franco Sensi and Juve director of football Antonio Giraudo were apparently involved in a bitter war of words the following day.

Inter have without doubt the easiest game of the three title contenders this weekend as they play host to struggling Brescia. Against Atalanta last week they put in a desperately disappointing first-half performance and despite dominating for much of the second, they could find no way past Massimo Taibi. Even young Stephane Dalmat (so impressive since returning from injury) had an off day and was eventually substituted. Christian Vieri did his damnedest to find the equaliser but it just wouldn't come.

Who'd bet against struggling Brescia to suffer the backlash of Inter's elimination from the Uefa Cup this week?

Fiorentina's clash with Lazio is likely to be a sombre affair. The Viola are all but mathematically relegated while Lazio don't look like achieving their long-term aim of qualifying for the Champions League. The Biancocelesti currently sit five points off the pace and look as though they will be playing Uefa Cup football next season. Coach Alberto Zaccheroni was, however, boosted by the return to competitive action of Diego Simeone who's been out injured since the beginning of the season. They've missed his competitive edge in the midfield and his return will also be a shot in the arm for Argentina for whom he is a likely starter at the World Cup. It's been a good week for Marcelo Bielsa's side who were also lifted by the news that Walter Samuel's injury isn't too bad and he should be able to turn out against Germany next week.

Lazio didn't always convince in last week's win over Lecce but should have enough to beat a dispirited Fiorentina side.

Elsewhere, Bologna face Piacenza, while Chievo travel to Lecce.
