Genoa, Italy (SportsNetwork.com) - Juventus is just one point away from clinching its fourth straight Serie A title, and the club will aim to close it out on Saturday with a result at Sampdoria.
Massimiliano Allegri's team is still in the running for the treble as the club has advanced to the Coppa Italia final in June while also preparing for a semifinal showdown with Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday.
And while that game on Tuesday looms rather large for the Old Lady, Juve would like to wrap up the title on Saturday before turning its attention to European play.
Juve's 3-2 comeback win over Fiorentina on Wednesday put the club on the verge of the Scudetto thanks to a pair of goals from Carlos Tevez, who leads Serie A with 20 goals on the campaign.
Sampdoria has dropped to fifth place as the club is in the midst of a five- game winless run that has left them just one point clear of sixth-place Genoa and only two above Fiorentina.
The two sides played to a 1-1 draw earlier this season, and a similar result would be enough for Juve on Saturday.
Lazio kept the title race alive for a few more days with a 4-0 win over Parma on Wednesday, but the real race if for second place with Lazio entering the weekend one point clear of rivals Roma.
Lazio travels to 17th-place Atalanta on Sunday, while Roma faces a tougher test at home against European hopefuls Genoa.
Fourth-place Napoli is five points back of Roma for a Champions League spot and the club hosts AC Milan, while Fiorentina continues its pursuit of a Europa League spot with a home match against second-from-the-bottom Cesena.
