Italy's Serie A resumes this weekend after six days clouded by grief following the sudden death of Fiorentina captain Davide Astori.With 12 matches to play, Fiorentina are 10th, nine points behind sixth-placed Sampdoria in the last of the Europa League qualifying spots.Many Juventus players knew Astori from the Italian national team, and Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and defender Giorgio Chiellini were among those who made the trip to the funeral Thursday after returning from Juventus' Champions League victory over Tottenham in London.Napoli had won nine straight league games in pursuit of a first Serie A title since 1990 .Yet they have been unable to shake off Juventus, who have won the last six scudetti.
