MILAN (AP) -Juventus travels to bitter rival Inter Milan on Saturday, hoping Andrea Stramaccioni's team doesn't spoil its Serie A title chances as it did its unbeaten record back in November.

Inter won 3-1 to end Juventus' 49-match unbeaten streak, just as it seemed Antonio Conte's side was closing in on Milan's record of 58 matches without defeat.

That match remains one of Stramaccioni's top three memories of his year in charge at Inter, and he says "for us it is absolutely not just a game like any other ... it means so much to us.''

Juventus is nine points ahead of second-placed Napoli, which plays Torino and can't afford to lose touch with the leader.

Elsewhere, Mario Balotelli looks to continue his scoring streak when AC Milan travels to Chievo Verona. The Italy striker scored three in two internationals.
