AC Milan travels to Udinese on Saturday looking to get its season back on track, while Serie A leader Juventus visits Bologna a day later - if the weather permits.
Milan has not won in its last three games and lost the first leg of its Italian Cup semifinal 2-1 at home to Juventus on Wednesday.
Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri says ''we're not going through a good and lucky period at the moment ... but we have to remain calm.''
The Serie A champion will also be without talismanic striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic as he sits out the first of his three-game ban for striking an opponent.
Udinese has not lost a home game all season, winning 10 of its 11 matches at the Stadio Friuli.
Juventus sits a point above Milan in the standings, having played a game less.
