Serie A to resume with Juventus in firm control
ROME (AP) -As Serie A gets set to resume this weekend after its holiday break, the biggest question isn't which club will win the Italian league, but rather which squad will be Juventus' top challenger.
The possibilities are not lacking.
While Juve holds an eight-point lead, the six squads that follow are grouped within nine points of each other.
Juventus leads with 44 points and Lazio is second with 36 points, followed by Fiorentina and Inter Milan (35 each), Napoli (34), Roma (32), and AC Milan (27).
The January transfer window could be decisive, with Juve and Milan reportedly contending for Didier Drogba. Mario Balotelli could end up back in Italy, and there is also talk that Wesley Sneijder could move across town to Milan to conclude his contract feud with Inter.
