Juventus host Sampdoria (12/29, 6.30 a.m., ESPN2) in a battle that should keep Max Allegri's side well and truly clear at the top. Games between these two tend to deliver on entertainment -- five of their past six meetings have yielded more than 2.5 goals per 90 -- and there's definitely the chance of a big upset.
