Juventus will be looking to make it a perfect nine from nine when they host Genoa this weekend.
The Serie A giants already have a six point lead over their closest rivals Napoli – and now they are bidding to extend it further.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been in blistering form since moving from Real Madrid in the summer and the allegations surrounding his off-field activity have not slowed down his performances on the pitch.
Genoa have had a hit-and-miss season so far, sitting in 11th place with four wins and three defeats from their seven matches so far.
Here is all you need to know about this weekend’s match…
When is the game?
Juventus and Genoa face off in the evening of Saturday October 20.
Kick-off is scheduled for 5pm.
Where is the game being played?
It is Juventus’ home game and they will be hosting the action in the Allianz Stadium.
The stadium, which was opened in 2009, holds just over 41,000 spectators.

Viewers in the UK can only watch the game via Eleven Sports.
It is not going to be shown on a conventional TV channel, due to Eleven holding the exclusive rights to Serie A.

Juventus have a couple of doubts ahead of the game.
Paulo Dybala is struggling with a knee problem, while Douglas Costa has little niggles in his ankle and thigh.
Both men will undergo a late fitness test to determine whether they can play. Dybala is more likely to make an appearance than Costa.
There is one confirmed absentee for Juve, with Leonardo Spinazzola out of action with a knee problem.
Cristiano Ronaldo is fit and ready to play in the game and will likely feature alongside Mario Mandzukic up front.

What has been said?
Ahead of the game, former Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain has been speaking out about his exit from the club – claiming that Ronaldo’s arrival is what forced him out.
"No, mine is a feeling of affection because they treated me very well; team-mates and supporters have given me huge affection," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"But I did not ask to leave. Basically, everyone says it, they kicked me out. At Milan I immediately had a great love and so they convinced me.
"Maybe I knew something had broken, and then they took Ronaldo. The decision to leave was not mine.
"I gave everything for Juventus, I won several titles. After Cristiano arrived, the club wanted to make a qualitative leap and they told me that I could not stay and that they were trying to find a solution. The best solution was Milan."
