Juventus to visit Chievo in Serie A opening round

MILAN (AP) -- Serie A champion Juventus will kick off its bid for a fourth straight title at Chievo Verona, while last season's runner-up Roma hosts Fiorentina on the opening day.

The 2014-15 calendar was announced Monday and sees new Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri return to San Siro to face former club AC Milan in its third match of the season.

Allegri, who replaced Antonio Conte this month, was fired by Milan in January.

Milan vice president Adriano Galliani says "I am happy for Max because he is a great coach and he is now in charge of the champions of Italy. It will be a great game."

Milan hosts Lazio on the opening day, while Inter Milan visits Torino.

The season starts the weekend of Aug. 31 and ends May 31.
