ROME — All of a sudden, it's anyone's guess who will win the Italian league.

Two weeks ago, AC Milan appeared to be cruising toward its second consecutive title with a four-point lead over Juventus. Now the Turin club is one point in front with seven rounds remaining.

And if recent form is any indication, Juventus now holds the edge.

Milan slumped to a 1-1 draw with Catania and a 2-1 loss at home to Fiorentina in its last two league matches, and split those with a defeat to Barcelona that eliminated it from the Champions League quarterfinals.

Juventus, meanwhile, has outscored opponents 12-0 in its last four matches — all victories.

Milan visits an in-form Chievo Verona side Tuesday and Juventus hosts third-place Lazio on Wednesday.
