Juve are then away to Roma in a mouth-watering second Serie A match of Italy great Pirlo’s reign, and travel to Napoli on matchday three.

Lazio and Inter, meanwhile, are currently scheduled to face each other in the third round of fixtures. The he seventh round on November 8 also catches the eye, with Lazio v Juventus and Atalanta v Milan on the same weekend.

In games which will take place as arranged, AC Milan face Bologna at San Siro, with Roma heading to Hellas Verona. Gennaro Gattuso’s Napoli will go to Parma on the first day, while newly promoted Spezia’s first ever game in Serie A is away to Udinese.

The penultimate round of fixtures will see Juve entertain Inter, while Roma are the home side in a derby battle with Lazio.

October 18 is the scheduled date for the first Milan derby, with the second set to take place on February 21.

Looking ahead to next May, the most intriguing of the final day fixtures sees Atalanta host Milan in a battle between sides aiming for Champions League football.
