Serie A continues this weekend with matches played across Friday to Monday. We get to see the champions in waiting on Friday evening, as they look to stretch their advantage at the top of the standings, while the Champions League battle continues with AC Milan, Inter Milan, and Roma all in action.
Sassuolo vs Napoli
Napoli already boast a dominant 15-point advantage at the top of the standings, and they could build on that this weekend. The Italian giants have lost just once in their previous 14 against Sassuolo, and that makes them fairly closer to a banker this weekend.
Sampdoria vs Bologna
Bologna has an excellent record in the league against Sampdoria, as they have picked up victories in seven of their previous eight meetings. The previous meeting between the sides this term ended in a draw, but it’s hard to see past the traveling side based on their dominant record.
Monza vs AC Milan
Milan ended a three-game losing run last weekend, and will be looking to move back into the top four this weekend. However, the reigning champions have lost their previous two on the road without scoring. We could see a score draw being a likely outcome on Saturday.
Inter Milan vs Udinese
Inter have won three of their previous four matches in the league, and have a significant record against Udinese. They have lost just once in their previous ten showdowns against Udinese, and we could see them winning a fifth straight game against their rivals at the San Siro on Saturday.
Atalanta vs Lecce
Atalanta moved up to third in the standings after picking up a third win in five last weekend. Meanwhile, Lecce is unbeaten in their last two. However, we find it hard to see past the in-form hosts on Sunday.
Fiorentina vs Empoli
Fiorentina come into this home fixture having failed to win in their previous five. Meanwhile, Empoli has won twice over the same period. Fiorentina’s involvement in Europe could play a big part this weekend, so we favour the away team.
Salernitana vs Lazio
Lazio has failed to win in their previous three league matches coming into this weekend. Salernitana has also lost their previous two in Serie A. Both sides will be keen to avoid another defeat, and a draw could be a decent outcome for both.
Spezia vs Juventus
Juventus has enjoyed an upturn in their form, as they have won their previous two in Serie A. They look a safe bet to maintain that winning sequence against Spezia on Sunday, as the hosts have lost three of their last four games in the league.
Roma vs Hellas Verona
Roma has been in excellent recent form, as they have picked up three wins in their previous five games. However, Verona could be a difficult opponent as they have avoided defeat in their previous four. But, we will be siding with the hosts on Sunday.
Torino vs Cremonese
Cremonese are still waiting for their first win this term. We can’t see it coming on Monday evening, as Torino has won two of their last four, and they have lost just once over that same period.
