Cagliari Vs Juventus
As predicted Cagliari were involved in a score draw at the Tardini to remain among the bottom three. Juventus are showing slight signs of fatigue, as they were held at the Juventus stadium by a determined Sampdoria side, as their congested fixture list takes it’s toll on Allegri’s side. La Juve to bounce back in an away win before the Christmas break.
Napoli Vs Parma
Benitez’s side will be kicking themselves after failing to make the most of their chances and subsequently lost 0-2 to Milan at the San Siro in what has been an extremely inconsistent season for the Partnepoi, and who are now 12 points behind the Serie A leaders Juventus. Parma languish bottom of the standings in what has been a disastrous 4 months for Donadoni’s men, who amazingly finished 6th last season. Considering Parma’s poor form, I predict a comfortable home win.
Sassuolo Vs Cesena
Sassuolo were moments away from an important draw with Palermo despite playing for almost half an hour with ten men. Despite the defeat coach Di Francesco will take many positives from his sides performance and he will be urging his men to take fill advantage of Cesena’s poor form. Cesena have won only one of their opening 15 outings, their latest defeat coming at the hands of Fiorentina. Home win expected.
Roma Vs Milan
Roma showed real fighting spirit to down a stubborn Genoa side and leave Liguria with three vital points to catch up with league leaders Juventus! Milan put on a solid display as they saw off a determined Napoli side at the San Siro in what will undoubtedly be a memorable victory for Inzaghi’s men and their local fans. This will be a tough game for the Rossoneri and I predict a home victory in what will be an intriguing game on Sunday night.
Verona Vs Chievo
Just a handful of points separate these two sides who have both been far from spectacular this season. Verona pulled off a shock victory over Udinese on Sunday afternoon while Chievo were downed by Inter at home. I expect a closely fought match as these sides battle for vital points and local bragging rights in what I predict will be an exciting derby.
Atalanta Vs Palermo
Atalanta were torn apart at the Olimpico by a rampant Lazio side while Palermo struck late seal a vital win in Sicily over Sassuolo. The home side will have their work cut out for them against this tough Palermo side, whose start to the Serie A campaign has impressed all, following a number of years in the lower division. Exciting score draw expected.
Fiorentina Vs Empoli
Fiorentina put on a superb attacking display as they downed a hapless Cesena side 1-4 while Empoli held out for a point against Torino. Comfortably win expected for Montella’s men who are on a fine run of form.
Sampdoria Vs Udinese
Two of Serie A’s surprise packages face off on Sunday afternoon. La Samp can potentially go into the Christmas break sittings alone in 3rd place in the Serie A standings, something I am sure coach Mihajlovic will be delighted with. Udinese have also surpassed all expectations after taking a number of high profile scalps along the way however might have met their match when they visit the Luigi Ferraris. Home win expected.
Torino Vs Genoa
My how the tables have turned in under a year, with Torino looking like a shadow of their former selves and Genoa surpassing all expectations following a number of seasons in late relegation fights to sit joint 3rd in the standings. This will be a close encounter and despite Genoa’s better form, I reckon Torino can hold out for a draw.
Inte Vs Lazio
Inter finally picked up their first three points under new coach Mancini’s second term in charge while Lazio continued with their impressive run by comfortably beating Atalanta in Rome. Even though the Nerazzurri are playing much better football their defence is still far from water tight hence why I predict an exciting score draw.
