We begin at 16.15 UK time (15.15 GMT) at the Stadio Olimpico, where Lazio try to avoid a third consecutive defeat and potentially losing second place, as they host on-form Sassuolo, who can’t seem to stop scoring at the moment.

At 18.30 UK time (17.30 GMT), Roma are forced to do without Henrikh Mkhitaryan in their trip to relegation battlers Brescia.

All eyes are on the Allianz Juventus Stadium in Turin at 20.45 UK time (19.45 GMT), when leaders Juventus take on the form team in Europe right now, Atalanta.

La Dea surged into third place thanks to their run of nine consecutive victories and another win here would put them within six points of Juve.

Meanwhile, the Bianconeri fumbled a 2-0 lead to lose 4-2 at Milan midweek and suddenly the Scudetto is up for grabs again.

Diawara: ‘Getting back to my best’

Amadou Diawara insists he is finding his fitness and form now for Roma, but they need ‘concentration’ against Brescia.

It kicks off at 18.30 UK time (17.30 GMT), click here for the line-ups and LIVEBLOG.

“I feel in better shape physically now, as the injury I had in January certainly didn’t help and I struggled to get back into shape after the restart. I’m getting back to my best now I can train and play consistently,” the midfielder told Roma TV.

Paulo Fonseca recently shifted Roma’s tactics to use a three-man defence.

“The coach explains what we have to do with the new system and we give our best to provide what the coach is asking for.

“It takes great concentration in Serie A, as there are no small teams, so you have to be right on it at all times, in every fixture.”

‘European Cups behind closed doors’

UEFA Vice-President Michele Uva has confirmed that the two European Cups will be held behind closed doors this August.

The draws for the final stages of the Champions League and the Europa League were completed today and the recovery of the return legs remaining from before the break have been confirmed to be held in the respective home stadiums before moving to a mini-tournament in Portugal and Germany respectively.

But Uva has revealed that the matches will be held without spectators, fearing fans will travel across borders.

“The plan is to end the Champions League and the Europa League behind closed doors,” he told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli. “Government protocols must be respected.

“Opening the doors now mean opening fans flowing between various nations, which is not possible today.

“This is a new, forced formula, but it makes us smile to see football at the highest level and the assignment of two coveted cups.”

Lopez: ‘Not Brescia’s last chance’

Diego Lopez claims Brescia are ‘giving everything we have’ to stay up and points out the positive ‘desire and enthusiasm’ he has seen in the group ahead of Saturday’s match against Roma.

Bresica sit second to bottom in Serie A, seven points behind safety, but can take confidence from going two games unbeaten at the Rigamonti.

Lopez doesn’t think the match on Saturday presents the last chance to keep up with the teams above the relegation zone.

“No, there are six more games remaining, so it’s still open,” Lopez said at a press conference. “Our biggest regret is the penalty against Genoa, which reopened the whole game. In the rest, we gave everything we had.

“I made the best team play, I gave those who were better for those games the chance to play.”

Asked if Venezuelan defender Jhon Chancellor could stop Bosnia international Edin Dzeko on Saturday, Lopez replied: “In my opinion, it’s not right to talk about Chancellor stopping Dzeko.

“He’s a footballer who knows how to play ball, but we’ll see during the game. Chancellor is fine, but I don’t know if I will use him to mark Dzeko.”

The Uruguayan coach has claimed Brescia have been eager to fight for survival since the resumption.

“I think it has been a good period, I have seen a desire to do well from the beginning. They want to demonstrate that you must enter the pitch with everything you have.

“I see a team with great desire and a lot of enthusiasm. These two elements can make the difference.”

Lopez had claimed the Rondinelle had a bigger chance of picking up points against Hellas Verona and Torino, and collected three from those two games, but insists to try against a side like Roma too.

“I said it and I stand by it, but it doesn’t mean that now that we face Roma, we won’t present ourselves.”

Lopez accepts that he risks losing his job if the results don’t go his way and knows he will be under pressure until the season is over.

“This question has been asked before, the answer is always the same. The tests are there every Sunday, even on Wednesday, until the end of the championship.”
