It promises to be another sizzling round of action in Serie A. Like the Premier League, the Italian top-flight will also not be observing the traditional Christmas break.

This is great news for followers of the league as well as avid bettors.

As expected, Juventus remains well ahead of the chasing pack. Currently, Max Allegri's side is 8 points ahead of Napoli. Alongside PSG and Liverpool, they remain the only unbeaten side in Europe's top 5 leagues.

Review of Gameweek 17

Lazio kicked off with a 3-1 home win over Cagliari while Napoli struggled to beat SPAL 1-0. Empoli lost 2-4 at home to Sampdoria as Sassuolo played a 1-1 draw with Torino.

Genoa thrashed Atalanta 3-1 as in contrast, AC Milan continued its wretched form with a 0-1 loss to Fiorentina. Federico Chiesa's sweet strike was the difference between both sides.
