Milan set their goal

AC Milan take a seven-game unbeaten run into their meeting with the surprise co-leaders Napoli today.

AC Milan take a seven-game unbeaten run into their meeting with the surprise co-leaders Napoli today. After losing their opening two games, Milan have won six and drawn one, leaving the Rossoneri only one point behind Napoli and Udinese. "Our goal is to get to first place," the Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti said. The Udinese defender Maurizio Domizzi believes the Bianconeri fully deserve to be at the top of the table ahead of their home tie with Genoa today.

Udinese, joint on 20 points with Domizzi's former club, have enjoyed a dream start to the season having lost just once while racking up six wins. "Udinese and Napoli can cause problems for the big teams until the end of the season," Domizzi said. Genoa are on a run of four games unbeaten, including their first away point of the season at Inter Milan. Lazio go into their clash against Catania hoping their poor form this month has been consigned to the past. They collected just one point from a possible nine before they beat Chievo 2-1 on Wednesday, an own goal from Andrea Mantovani eight minutes from time handing them their fifth win of the campaign.

In other games, Palermo take on Chievo, Atalanta host Lecce, Torino travel to Sampdoria, Siena entertain Fiorentina, Cagliari play Bologna. * Agencies
