Milan and Juventus, who have won 41 scudettos and have dominated Serie A for the past decade, winning every title since 1992 until Lazio deprived Juventus last term, meet at San Siro stadium this evening.

Milan shone in a 3-3 thriller with Barcelona in the Champions' League on Wednesday, but domestically, the pressure is on Alberto Zaccheroni's side following defeat at Bologna last week.

Juventus, who have won both their Serie A matches this season, welcome back Zinedine Zidane, their brilliant French playmaker, who was suspended for Juve's midweek draw at Deportivo La Coruña in the Champions' League. Jose Chamot Milan's Argentinian defender, has recovered from a muscle strain and replaces Roque Junior at right-back.

Tomorrow, in Channel 4's live game, Sven Goran Eriksson, Lazio's Swedish coach and contender for the England manager's job, is likely to make changes to the side which drew 1-1 with Arsenal in the Champions' League on Tuesday, with Yugoslav Dejan Stankovic making way for Roberto Baronio.

Serie A fixtures This afternoon: Udinese v Internazionale. Tonight: Milan v Juventus. Tomorrow afternoon: Bari v Atalanta; Brescia v Fiorentina; Napoli v Bologna; Reggina v Lecce; Roma v Vicenza; Verona v Lazio. Tomorrow night: Perugia v Parma.
