From the papers

The papers turn their attention to Juve's upcoming clash with Atalanta and to the return of Alex Del Piero alongside Filippo Inzaghi.

The Gazzetta dello Sport leads with, "Alex and Inzaghi, less incisiveness, but more football." The paper points out that this is Alex's great chance to prove a point, with David Trezeguet out injured, he can remind everyone of exactly who he is.

The Corriere dello Sport highlights the fact that if the Bianconeri win tonight, they would go first. Carlo Ancelotti says, "I can hardly believe it. We were eight points off the lead... Roma will be afraid."

Tuttosport 'reveals' that Antonio Cassano will go only to Juve or Milan. The Bari president, Antonio Mataresse, announces that "I would only let Cassano join the presidents that count, that is Agnelli or Berlusconi." But the fans are divided on just how much the 18-year-old is worth when asked whether £ 22 million are too many. 47.5% said yes, 52.5% said no. Ancelotti had advice for Del Piero ahead of tonight's clash. "He shouldn't concentrate on scoring, but on dragging Juventus to victory and the top of the League."
