Bologna vs Napoli
Bologna ended the game in extremely frustrating circumstances after they had two men sent off and also conceded a late goal to leave Sardinia with a point. Napoli huffed and puffed but couldn’t get the better of a stubborn Palermo side as Sarri’s men lost further points on league leaders Juve. I predict an away win.
Milan vs Sampdoria
Despite taking an early lead Milan’s youthful squad were punished for their mistakes and inefficiency in front of goal and lost 2-1 in Udine. Sampdoria were superb as they came from behind to beat Roma 3-2 in what was a great game of football. I reckon Montella’s men will get back to winning ways on Sunday.
Atalanta vs Cagliari
Both these sides had to fight back and earn a vital point in their respective games as the home side look to qualify for European football next season while the visitors target a mid-table finish. I predict a home win.
Empoli vs Torino
Empoli are eight points clear from the bottom three however still have a lot of work to do should they intend to avoid a relegation scrap come May. Torino fought hard and played out a 1-1 draw with Atalanta. I am backing another draw.
Genoa vs Sassuolo
Genoa showed some much needed determination and grit as they twice came from behind to hold Fiorentina to a 3-3 draw in what was a action packed encounter. Sassuolo were swept aside by a far superior Juve as they remained 16th in the standings after an extremely disappointing season for Di Francesco’s men. I predict a home win.
Pescara vs Lazio
Bottom side Pescara have had a torrid time in the Serie A, winning just one game to date and having collected just nine points. Lazio failed to make the most of their chances and paid the ultimate price as Chievo struck late at the Olimpico. This will be a close encounter but I reckon the visitors can get back to winning ways.
Palermo vs Crotone
Palermo secured a rare point on their Sunday evening trip to Naples while Crotone were finally awarded for their spirited performance after they beat fellow strugglers Empoli 4-1. This is a do-or-die for both sides but I reckon the game will end in a stalemate.
Juventus vs Inter
Juventus maintained their march towards their sixth consecutive Scudetto after a solid 0-2 win in Sassuolo while Inter won their seventh straight Serie A encounter to move up to fourth in the standings. I expect an extremely exciting game in Turin between two of Italy’s most in form sides but the visitor’s should just pip this.
Roma vs Fiorentina
Roma’s superb run of form came to an abrupt end on Sunday afternoon after they threw away their lead and lost 3-2 in Sampdoria. Fiorentina were also guilty of missing out last weekend as they allowed Genoa back into the game on two occasions as the game ended 3-3. Roma should have enough to win this.
