While the top three teams in Serie A have a comfortable lead over the rest of the group, one team in particular is trying to make a push and challenge the top dogs.

Heading into Matchday 12, AS Roma had a strong three-point lead over Napoli and Juventus.  Still, the three were up six points from the rest of the group, and it wasn't going to be possible for them to drop this week.  Meanwhile, Chievo Verona sits at the bottom of the league with just five points.

It really appears to be a six-team race at the top of the league.  Fiorentina is currently in sixth with 21 points, then Lazio is in a distant seventh with just 15 points.  There are also seven teams in the middle of the standings separated by just three points.

There are some big games to watch for in Serie A this weekend.  Here's a look at the latest league table, which will be updated through Matchday 12:

In the biggest match of the day, Juventus moved ahead of Napoli in the tables with a dominating 3-0 victory. Fernando Llorente got Goeba on the board early. His goal in the second minute was the first tally.

Paul Pogba and Andrea Pirlo would add goals in the second half to secure the win. The triumph also helped bring Juventus within one point of AS Roma in the tables. The leaders battled to a 1-1 draw with Sassuolo on Sunday.

The race for the top spot in Serie A is getting tighter.

 

Fiorentina Rides Rossi to 2-1 Win

Rossi scored two goals to lead his club past Sampdoria on Sunday. Both goals came in the first 17 minutes; from there Gigliati held on for the one-goal victory. Fiorentina dominated time of possession 66 percent to 34.

Vincenzo Montella's club is in fifth-place and safe for Europa League qualifying for now. If the club hopes to rise in the Serie A standings, it'll need more solid defensive performances and more sharpshooting from Rossi.

Here's a look at the scores from Sunday's Italian Serie A action.

Results 

Catania 1, Udinese 0

In a match that featured a number of opportunities for both teams, Catania was able to score once and still came out on top over Udinese.

Maxi Lopez came up with the only goal in the match thanks to a penalty kick in the 30th minute.  It was the first win for Catania since September.

The win for Catania moved them up a spot over Sassuolo, but they're still stuck in the relegation zone.  If there are month gaps in between their wins, they may very well be facing relegation at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Udinese lost a match that really could have helped them out.  Currently at No. 10 in the standings, a win would have given them 16 points, moving them all the way into seventh before Sunday's matches.

 

Inter Milan 2, Livorno 0

Inter Milan needed a big win to move closer to the top three teams in Serie A, and they got just that in the victory over Livorno.

It did not start well for Livorno, with Francesco Bardi scoring an own goal in the 30th minute.  Yuto Nagatomo then helped seal the deal in extra time for Inter Milan with another goal.

It wasn't all good for Inter Milan, however, as Jonathan was taken off in a stretcher during the game:

It was a big win for Inter Milan, as the team stays in fourth but also draws closer to Juventus for that No. 3 spot.  Livorno stays at No. 14 with the loss, although they could have jumped over all of the other teams with 12 points had they won or at least tied.
