A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Sunday:
Arsenal faces the latest test of its Premier League title credentials in a London derby with Chelsea. Manchester City's late win against Fulham on Saturday saw the reigning champions move back to the top of the table, meaning Arsenal will need a victory at Stamford Bridge to reclaim first place.
ROME (AP) — Alleged antisemitic chants by Juventus and Inter Milan fans are being investigated by Italian soccer authorities.
The chants, which allegedly included references to Jews, occurred on Saturday during Juventus’ 1-1 draw at Fiorentina and Inter’s 3-2 loss to AC Milan in the Milan derby.
MILAN (AP) — Inter Milan dropped its first points of the fledgling Serie A when it lost at Lazio 3-1 on Friday.
Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri’s substitutions made the difference as Pedro and Luis Alberto came off the bench to score two goals in the final 15 minutes after Inter forward Lautaro Martínez cancelled out Felipe Anderson’s opener.
ROME (AP) — Former Chelsea assistant Luca Gotti was appointed to coach Serie A club Spezia on Friday.
Gotti, who previously coached Udinese, was given a two-year contract. He replaces Thiago Motta, who left by mutual agreement after helping Spezia avoid relegation last season.
ROME (AP) — Edin Dzeko's second-half equalizer at Napoli secured for Inter Milan a 1-1 draw and the Serie A lead on Saturday.
Napoli could have gone on top with a win. Instead, Inter has a one-point lead over Napoli with a game in hand, and third-placed AC Milan was one point further back in their three-way battle for the title.
FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — Zlatan Ibrahimovic became the oldest player to score multiple goals in a Serie A game, but his brace still wasn't enough for AC Milan to win on Saturday.
Despite the Sweden star's two goals at the age of 40 years and 48 days, the Rossoneri slumped to their first loss of the season with a 4-3 defeat at Fiorentina.
ROME (AP) — Lazio hired Maurizio Sarri as its new coach on Wednesday, shortly after the Italian club strongly hinted at the appointment with a series of cryptic posts on social media.
“Lazio announces that Maurizio Sarri is the new coach of the first-team squad,” the Serie A club said in a one-line statement on its website.
