MILAN (AP) - Four-time defending champion Juventus will face its biggest title challenger from the past two seasons shortly after the start of the new Serie A campaign.

League officials unveiled the Serie A schedule Monday and Juventus will visit Roma in the second round of matches after hosting Udinese in its opening game on Aug. 22 or 23.

Sinisa Mihajlovic will debut as AC Milan manager at Fiorentina.

The Milan derby is scheduled for the third round and Napoli hosts Lazio the following week in a rematch of a game that determined third place and a berth in Champions League qualifying at the end of the last season - with Lazio coming out ahead.

The always-heated Rome derby is scheduled for the weekends of Oct. 31 and March 19.
