Pescara vs Chievo
Pescara’s persistence paid off as young Albanian striker Manaj scored late on to secure a vital point for his side away to Genoa, who ended the game with nine men. Chievo have had a very good start to their season however, as expected, stood little chance on their travels to Napoli as they were simply outplayed. The home side will fight hard and I reckon have enough to hold out for a draw.
Udinese vs Lazio
Udinese lost their third game of the season on their travels to Sassuolo while Lazio proved extremely efficient as they beat Empoli 2-0 at the Olimpico despite having far less possession then the visitors. This will be a close game which I predict will end in a draw.
Empoli vs Juventus
With just four points to their name Empoli are in for a tough season and opponents don’t come any easier then reigning champions Juventus. The home side have been very poor to date and Juve will make easy work of them. No doubt an away win.

Atalanta vs Napoli
Atalanta recorded just their second win of the season over newcomers Crotone as the Nerazzurri look to distance themselves from the bottom three as early as possible and avoid a relegation scrape come may. As predicted, Napoli made easy work of Chievo to remain in second place. Away win expected despite Napoli’s mid-week Champions League commitments.

Bologna vs Genoa
Bologna rode their luck and left the San Siro with a vital point as Donadoni’s men did enough to frustrate a toothless Inter to remain 8th in the standings. Genoa lost their cool and had two players sent off in the space of 5 minutes as they eventually conceded late on and drop two crucial home points to minnows Pescara. I predict an entertaining game of football which will end in a draw.
Cagliari vs Crotone
Cagliari did not let a late Sampdoria goal deter them as the Sardinians marched straight back up the other end to score an even later winner to ensure three important points. Crotone have yet to win a single game this season after losing at home to Atalanta, with the newcomers already looking like relegation favorites. Home win expected.
Sampdoria vs Palermo
Despite equalising in the 86th minute Sampdoria lacked the concentration to see the game off and conceded just two minutes later to lose out to Cagliari. Palermo fought like dogs to keep mighty Juve at bay only to concede a silly own goal half way through the second half to end the game empty handed. Just one point separates these two sides, who lie in the bottom half of the table, hence why I am going for a draw.
Milan vs Sassuolo
Milan achieved another positive result by holding out for a draw in Florence as Montella looks to settle his side this season so that they can qualify for European football next season. Sassuolo finally got back to winning ways after a poor run of form as a lone Defrel goal was enough to beat Udinese. I am backing the Rossoneri to win this.
Torino vs Fiorentina
Torino shocked Roma in Turin as Falque came back to haunt his old club to score a vital brace as the game ended 3-1. Fiorentina missed a first half penalty and had to settle for a point as Milan fought back and held La Viola to a draw. I predict a close game and am betting that Mihajlovic’s side to hold out for a draw.

Roma vs Inter
Roma are already five points adrift of league leaders Juventus as it seems as though Roma are in for another frustrating season. Inter were also frustrated by a stubborn Bologna side as they conceded a silly first half goal and failed to win what should have been three easy points in Milan. I am backing a home win here.
Palermo vs Juventus
Palermo were rewarded for their determination as front man Nestorovski grabbed a late winner and three crucial points for his side. Juventus bounced back after their loss to Inter on Sunday evening with a crushing home win over Cagliari. I predict a win for the reigning champions ahead of the Champions League encounter.
Napoli vs Chievo
Napoli were held to a goalless draw by an organised Genoa squad to concede top spot to Juventus. Chievo did very well to beat an in form Sassuolo at home however I reckon they won’t have enough to hold back the home side.
Torino vs Roma
Considering they played for over half the game with ten men Torino will be grateful for the hard earned point collected in Pescara. Roma completely trashed newcomers Crotone in Rome and I am backing them to collect three points in Turin.

Genoa vs Pescara
Genoa’s determined performance was rewarded with a point at home when Napoli visited on Wednesday evening. Pescara failed to make the most of their numerical advantage as they lacked the bite upfront to grab the vital winning goal. Home win expected.

Inter vs Bologna
Following their moral boasting win over eternal rivals Juventus, an early Icardi double got Inter off to a flying start to seal three important points in Empoli. Bologna recorded their third league win of the season as they comfortably saw off Sampdoria on their home soil. Home win expected.
Lazio vs Empoli
Despite creating a number of chances Lazio failed to make them count and were punished for their inefficiency in Milan. Empoli were soundly beaten at home by Inter and I doubt they will fare much better against Lazio in Rome.
Sassuolo vs Udinese
Despite a very positive start to their season Sassuolo seemed to have run out of steam as they were beaten by Chievo at the Stadio Bentegodi. Udinese did very well to hold a strong Fiorentina side to a draw in a four goal thriller. I am backing the home side to get back to winning ways.
Fiorentina vs Milan
Fiorentina were left frustrated on Wednesday night as a stubborn Udinese squad allowed them all the possession hitting where it hurts on the break for the game to ed all square. Milan fans will be pleased that their side have now won two on the trot following a solid performance over Lazio at the San Siro. I am backing La Viola to win this exciting encounter.
Crotone vs Atalanta
Crotone are letting goals in by the bucket loads as the Serie A newcomers struggle to come to terms with top flight football, their latest pummelling coming at the Olimpico. Atalanta will be kicking themselves for not standing strong and conceding a last minute goal against fellow relegation candidates Palermo to fall to penultimate place in the Serie A standings.

Cagliari vs Sampdoria
Cagliari stood little chance when they faced an angry Juventus in Turin. La Samp have only won two games this season and their lackluster performance on Wednesday proves just how poor they have been. A point separates these two sides at the lower half of the standings and I am putting my money on a draw.
Milan vs Lazio
Carlos Bacca scored late on to secure three vital points for his side and relieve some pressure from the embattled Millan manager Montella. Lazio knocked three past a hapless Pescara side to make it two wins out of their opening four games. I predict an exciting game at the San Siro and am backing a score draw.
Bologna vs Sampdoria
Bologna stood little chance of collecting any points in Naples despite tieing the game midway through the second half the home side looked far superior. Sampdoria will be kicking themselves after holding Milan at bay for almost the entire game before conceding very late on to finish the game empty handed. Pretty much nothing separates these two sides hence why I am going for a draw.
Atalanta vs Palermo
Atalanta’s dire season continued as they were pummeled by a more organised Cagliari side in Sardinia eventually losing 3-0 to remain among the bottom three. Palermo held out for a draw against fellow relegation candidates Crotone and I reckon the home side have enough to win this.

Chievo vs Sassuolo
Chievo’s fine start to their season continued as they showed real fighting spirit to score two in the last 15 minutes of the game to beat Udinese on their travels. Two quick fire goals gave Sassuolo a comfortable 2-0 win over Genoa. I am predicting an exciting game which will end in a draw.

Empoli vs Inter
Empoli will be pleased with the hard earned point in Torino on Sunday while Inter bounced back from an embarrassing midweek defeat to Europa League minnows Hapoel Beer Sheva to down reigning Italian champions Juventus 2-1 at the San Siro. De Boer’s side showed great character immediately replying to Juve’s second half goal to score a quick brace and secure three vital points. I expect the Nerazzurri to win this.
Genoa vs Napoli
Genoa suffered their first loss of the season on their travels to Sassuolo while despite a lackluster first half display Napoli came alive in the second half to see off a stubborn Bologna side to climb to the top of the standings. This will be a close game which I reckon Napoli can win.
Juventus vs Cagliari
Some pundits would have called Allegri and his Juventus squad cocky last weekend for failing to impose themselves at the San Siro and eventually losing 2-1 to a more motivated Inter to end their 100% start to the season. Cagliari fans will be delighted with their 3-0 trashing of Atalanta as the Sardinians look to avoid a relegation scrape come May. The visitors to face the brunt of Juve’s wrath.
Pescara vs Torino
Pescara were made to pay for missing a first half penalty as Lazio came back with a vengeance in the second half to win 3-0. Torino will be annoyed for allowing Empoli too much possession as the visitors eventually held out for a draw. I am backing a bore draw.
Roma vs Crotone
Moments after hitting the post in Florence Roma were punished by some nice build-up play and a decisive strike going in off the post for a La Viola win. Crotone are one of two sides in the Serie A who have yet to win a single game as the newcomers look to be heading straight back down to the lower division come May. Home win expected.

Udinese vs Fiorentina
After a last minute win over Milan two weeks ago Udinese got a taste of their own medicine as Chievo scored very late on to punish some sloppy defending. Fiorentina rode their luck and struck late to earn three vital points against Roma.
Sampdoria vs Milan
Lady luck was not on Sampdoria’s side on Sunday afternoon after Giampaolo’s men went 1-2 up just before half time and looked to have unsettled Roma at the Olimpico, only for the game to be temporarily postponed due to a freak downpour, giving enough time for the home side to find their feet and eventually beat La Samp. Milan failed to make their possession count in what was a very tired looking performance, with the Rossoneri eventually losing 0-1 following a late Perica strike. Home side will fancy their chances.
Lazio vs Pescara
Lazio fought hard and earned an important point in Chievo to remain in mid-table. Pescara will consider themselves unlucky after being denied a number of goal scoring chances by the fantastic Handanovic and eventually crumbled in the last few minutes to allow Inter to snatch all three points. The visitors will not go down without a fight however I predict a home win.
Napoli vs Bologna
After a lackluster first half Napoli sprung into life scoring three quick-fire goals to put the game to bed against a shaky Palermo side. Bologna will be delighted with their 2-1 home win over fellow relegation candidates Cagliari. Despite their mid-week Champions League fixture Napoli should have no problem winning this.

Udinese vs Chievo
Udinese showed real resolve to make the most of a toothless Milan performance to score late and secure three vital points at the San Siro. Chievo will feel slightly hard done by the two points lost to Lazio however will be satisfied for a point as they look to qualify for European football come May. I predict an exciting game which will end all square.

Cagliari vs Atalanta
Cagliari were comfortably beaten in Bologna and the Sardinians are in for a tough season unless they improve drastically could be playing Serie B football next season. Atalanta won their first game and points of the season after coming back from a goal down to beat Torino at home. Bore draw expected.
Crotone vs Palermo
Crotone are the only side in the Serie A to have not yet collected a single point and the newcomers look to be in for a very tough campaign. Palermo ran out of steam in the second half after keeping Napoli at bay for the first 45 mins. Like Crotone, the Sicilians will be in for a long season unless they improve drastically. I reckon the away side can edge this game between the relegation favorites.
Sassuolo vs Genoa
Despite a very good start to their season Sassuolo were brought back down to earth at the Juventus stadium after the home side knocked three past their hapless defense in the first 30 minutes of play. Genoa’s game versus Fiorentina was abandoned after 30 minutes after a freak thunderstorm. The visitors have been very solid so far this season but I reckon the home side have enough to win this.
Torino vs Empoli
Torino were beaten in Atalanta despite taking an early lead while Empoli showed their Serie A experience by comfortably seeing off new boys Crotone to secure their first three points of the season. The home side will fancy their chances.
Inter vs Juventus
Sunday night sees the clash between two of Italy’s most successful sides as reigning champions Juventus visit the San Siro in what is expected to be a tightly contested encounter. Despite a positive transfer campaign Inter have not found their feet yet and in fact won their first game last weekend. Juventus carried on where they left off last season comfortably winning their first three opening encounters. Despite their mid-week Champions League fixture I reckon the Old Lady has enough to win this.

Fiorentina vs Roma
Fiorentina’s game was postponed last weekend after a freak downpour as La Viola look to improve on last season’s finish by securing Champions League football. Roma have their own ambitions this season as they attempt to challenge Juventus to the much coveted Scudetto. Both sides have Europa League football commitments on Thursday, however you can expect an entertaining game of football in Florence.
