Turin, Italy ( - Juventus and Roma will both aim to maintain their perfect records in Serie A on Sunday when the two title favorites clash at Juventus Stadium. Juve has captured the past three league titles, and Massimiliano Allegris men are firm favorites to add a fourth straight this season, with Roma looking to be the biggest threat to the Old Lady. Both teams have started the campaign with five wins from five fixtures, and Juve has yet to concede a goal, while Roma has given away just one. Last term it was Roma that pushed Juve to finish line, only to come up a bit short, and Rudi Garcias men will look to lay down an early marker on Sunday to continue their good start. Roma has yet to taste defeat in all competitions after earning a 1-1 draw at Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday, while Juventus suffered its first setback on Wednesday in a 1-0 Champions League loss at Atletico Madrid. Despite that setback, Allegri is confident heading into one of his sides most important games in Serie A this season. Juve arrive in good shape, as we won all five in Serie A and still havent conceded there, Allegri said on Wednesday following the setback to Atletico. It will certainly be a great game and tonights defeat will not change the atmosphere in the team. Udinese has started well with four wins from five games and the teams lone defeat came to Juventus. That good start has a strong chance to continue on Sunday with a home match against Cesena, which owns one win from five games. Sampdoria is the only other unbeaten team in Serie A and the club will put that mark on the line against 16th-place Atalanta at home. Inter Milan sustained a humbling 4-1 home defeat to Cagliari last weekend, and the Walter Mazzarris side will aim to bounce back at mid-table Fiorentina, while AC Milan hopes to end a three-game winless run in the league when the Rossoneri entertain Chievo. Hellas Verona has started well with eight points from five games and the team hosts Cagliari, Empoli and Palermo square off with both sides searching for their first win of the season, Lazio entertains last-place Sassuolo, Genoa invades Parma and Napoli tangles with Torino.

But to have to absorb what was said to him for any rational and intelligent person is too much. Nike Vapormax Halvalla .com) - The Los Angeles Kings werent playing their best hockey before the league went on break during the Winter Olympics.It was broad smiles all around from head coach Frank Klopas and Sporting Director Nick de Santis as the Impact put on their brave and cheery faces at training yesterday. Hard to imagine this is a club who are firmly entrenched at the bottom of the Eastern Conference as results this season mirror the tailspin the Impact suffered throughout the later stages of the 2013 season. Last Saturdays Kansas City shambles offered very few shreds of comfort or optimism for a club who have only claimed a solitary victory over the course of their last 15 regular season matches. Coincidentally, that win - secured in the final home match of the 2013 season - came against the Philadelphia Union who will be the opponent for the Impacts Saputo Stadium home opener Saturday afternoon. Going into this season there was no expectation the Impact would start in the same forthright manner they did in 2013, where they had already accumulated 16 points and by a distance were the form team of the Eastern Conference through seven games. By the same token nobody in the organization would have thought the club would still be in search of its first win on the back of the worst start of the season in club history. By a quirk of fate Klopas old flame, the Chicago Fire, are the only other winless team in the conference. Any thought Klopas would suffer a similar fate of so many Impact coaches before were completely dismissed out of hand by De Santis yesterday, as he offered full and unequivocal support for his besieged head coach. De Santis could not have appeared more genuine as he addressed the media first in French and then reinforced the same message when switching to English as he expressed complete confidence in his coaching staff. “Its frustrating, its disappointing but we do need to stay patient,” De Santis said of the Imapcts start. The opening goal conceded against the reigning MLS Cup champions was a Callum Mallace attempt at a headed clearance that found nothing but the roof of the Impact net. It typifies the run of ill fortune the Impact has experienced so far this season. One that by this stage drains, and erodes confidence levels allowing for the doubts to set in. This was evident during the second half in Kansas where as a team they completely lacked conviction and confidence. After Marco Di Vaio was forced off injured in minute 55, many players became mere shadows of themselves as they conceded three soft goals. After the match Impact captain Patrice Bernier could offer little explanation of why the team had performed so poorly though the second half. If the Impact is to salvage their season this has to represent rock bottom. Playing at Saputo Stadium for a first ttime this season offers up the perfect tonic.dddddddddddd. Training yesterday took place at the clubs training pitch adjacent to the stadium and was conducted under glorious blue skies, which is in stark contrast to training and playing at a dreary appearing Olympic Stadium. A spring was in everyones steps, a certain buoyancy in the air. Di Vaio - who will be the first to admit that his form this season is far from where he would like it to be, or where the club needs it to be - seems likely to overcome the slight hamstring strain and should be available Saturday. Someone who likely again wont feature is Argentine DP Hernan Bernardello. Yesterday De Santis spoke of the midfielders fellow countryman Igniacio Piatti, who currently plays for San Lorenzo. The Impacts Sporting Director admitted the club was very much hoping to bring him in during the upcoming transfer window. Dont expect summer shopping to be limited to merely adding a third and final DP. This is a club who throughout its 20-plus-year history doesnt shy away from making the investments where needed. Bolstering the lineup and adding greater depth will certainly enhance the Impacts chances in the second half of the season. For now, though, its about getting the optimum performances from all the players at their disposal. This is something Klopas admitted earlier in the week was keeping him awake at night. In the lead up to Saturdays game much has been made in both Montreal and Philadelphia about Andrew Wengers return to Saputo Stadium. Wenger even got in on the act himself in the week when he spoke of his time in Montreal and learning much from Marco. Referring to Di Vaio, this was clearly a backhanded slap in the direction of Marco Schallibaum. As the team were putting in some of their final preparations for Saturday afternoons encounter, the finishing touches were been applied to Saputo Stadium. The pitch looks in perfect shape. The last time the club took to that pitch was last Oct. 19 in what was a must-win game for the Impact - who had gone into the game on the back of a six-game winless skid. Philly took the early lead before Di Vaio notched his 20th goal of the season and Karl Ouimette scored the late winner. The opponent will be the same Saturday afternoon, and the club fully need a similar result. Or as De Santis put it yesterday: “We are a win away from relieving the pressure on everyone.” You can reach and follow Noel Butler at: @TheSoccerNoel on Twitter Listen to Montreal Impact vs. Philadelphia Union live on TSN690 Montreal [] Saturday at 4pm et.
