Another thrilling round of fixtures are set for Serie A this weekend, as teams will be looking to claim maximum points to edge closer to their goals for the season. Last season’s champions will be looking to get back on track after a poor run of form, and AC Milan kick off the weekend’s action at the San Siro against Torino.
AC Milan vs Torino
AC Milan has gone five without a win in Serie A, and that has seen them drop out of the Champions League spots. Torino will be the visitors, and they will be looking to close the gap on the champions after losing just once in five. Milan are odds-on, and I’d happily take them on with a draw on Friday.
Empoli vs Spezia
Spezia will be on the road this weekend, as they look to end a three-game losing run. However, Empoli has shown better form their previous outings, and they will be bidding for a third win in five. We think that the hosts stand the best chance of winning the points this weekend.
Lecce vs AS Roma
A Champions League finish firmly looks within reach for Roma this term, and they could move level on points with second-placed Inter Milan this weekend. We find it hard to take on the travelling side, as they have won three of their last four.
Pick: Roma at 1/1 with BetXchange.
Lazio vs Atalanta
Lazio has moved into the top four after avoiding defeat in their previous five matches. Atalanta will be the visitors this weekend, as they bid to recover following defeat last weekend. We expect this to be an entertaining game, but a draw could be the most likely outcome.
Pick: Draw at 5/2 with BetXchange.
Udinese vs Sassuolo
Sassuolo has been in fine recent form, as they have won their previous two to edge clear from the relegation places. Meanwhile, Udinese will be bidding to end a run, which has seen them lose three of their previous five. We will be siding with the in-form Sassuolo.
Bologna vs Monza
Bologna come into this fixture on Sunday having avoided defeat in their previous four matches. Monza is also in excellent form, as they have also gone five without defeat. However, we could see the travelling side’s recent good form come to an end on Sunday.
Juventus vs Fiorentina
Juventus eased any worries of relegation in their previous match by picking up a first victory in five fixtures. A win on Sunday could put them back into the mix for a European finish this term. We expect the Old Lady to land that success as Fiorentina has gone four without a victory.
Napoli vs Cremonese
Napoli’s excellent run of form in Serie A has been maintained, and they are charging away to win the title this term. We expect them to face very few issues against a Cremonese side that are still waiting for a first win of the season this weekend.
Sampdoria vs Inter Milan
Inter Milan come into this fixture in fine form, as they have won their previous two. We expect them to maintain that winning sequence this weekend, as Sampdoria has lost four of their previous five.
