Empoli vs Roma

Empoli will be kicking themselves for allowing a ten-man Sassuolo side back into the game after taking an early lead and eventually lost 3-2 in an entertaining game of football. Roma thumped five past a helpless Palermo side, and in all honesty it could have easily been more, as Spalletti’s men recovered well following their defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League last week. I reckon the visitors will win this.

Prediction 1-2

Milan vs Torino

The Rossoneri showed great determination to earn a crucial point over a misfiring Napoli side on their journey South, as Mihajlovic’s men continue to show signs that they are settling well into his new system. Torino will be disappointed for failing to take a number of clear goal scoring chances and allowing lowly Carpi to hold them to a draw. Home win expected.

Prediction 3-1

Palermo vs Bologna

Palermo continue to struggle as they were smashed at the Olimpico and are now just three points above the bottom three. Bologna did very well to stop Juve’s 15 game winning streak to hold the reigning Serie A champions Renata Dall’Ara stadium stifling Allegri’s men to just a single shot on goal. I predict a close game and believe that Bologna can edge this.

Prediction 1-2

Carpi vs Atalanta

Carpi will be pleased with their hard earned point in Turin as they are now just five points from safety. Atalanta fought hard but were eventually beaten by a stronger Fiorentina side to remain six points above the bottom three. I predict a bore draw.

Prediction 0-0

Chievo vs Genoa

Chievo were beaten by local rivals Verona on Saturday afternoon while Genoa did well to see off a struggling Udinese side as they leapfrogged their rivals up to 14th in the Serie A table. Just three points separate these two sides and I predict an exciting score draw.

Prediction 2-2

Sampdoria vs Frosinone

Despite a brave performance Sampdoria were undone by a stronger Inter side in Milan and Montella’s side are now entering the relegation scrap with just two points separating them from the bottom three. What Frosinone lack in talent they make up for in heart as Stellone’s side continue to impress with their determined team performances as they slowly edge closer to safety. This is a crucial game for both sides who cannot afford to lose, however I predict a home win.

Prediction 2-1

Udinese vs Verona

Torino snatched their second win of the year after a hard fought comeback in Sicily with front man Ciro Immobile grabbing a brace while Carpi lost for the 14th time in what is the clubs first ever season in the Serie A to remain six points from safety. Home win expected.

Prediction 2-1

Juventus vs Inter

Even though Juventus’s impressive winning streak came to an end last weekend in Bologna they surely made amends for it by fighting back to hold Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich to a draw on Tuesday evening. Inter won just their second Serie A game in over a month as they face the daunting task of trying to halt their eternal rivals from winning an inevitable 5th Scudetto in the Derby D’Italia. Mancini’s men look unsettled and I reckon a home win is on the cards.

Prediction 2-0______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Lazio vs Sassuolo

Lazio were held on their short trip to Frosinone to remain among the top half of the table while Sassuolo showed real character at the Mapei Stadium to comeback and beat Empoli 3-2 despite playing for over one hour with ten men. Even though Lazio need all three points I reckon the visitors can hold out for a draw.

Prediction 1-1

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Fiorentina vs Napoli 

Monday night sees the clash between two of Italy’s best teams in what I predict will be a great game of attacking football. Fiorentina seem to be proving everyone wrong this season as they keep on winning despite a congested fixture list while Napoli’s title credentials have taken a knock in recent weeks following a defeat to Juventus and being held at home by Milan. Tough one to call but I predict the visitors can win this.

Prediction 1-2
