Atalanta vs. Sampdoria (Saturday, 2.00pm)
Atalanta BC took advantage of the opportunity to bounce straight back in midweek, as they eased to a win in the Champions League following an uncharacteristic collapse against Napoli last time out.
We say: Atalanta BC 3-1 Sampdoria
A rare occasion when the opposition has limited them to just one goal - and handed them a humbling first-half roasting - is unlikely to derail the runaway train that is Gasperini's Atalanta. With a relatively substantial squad still at the ready, the full effects of relentless midweek football are yet to be fully felt.
Though Samp are enjoying an upswing in form themselves, replicating last week's shock result - against an injury-strewn Lazio side - is likely to prove beyond them in Bergamo.
Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.
Genoa vs. Inter Milan (Saturday, 5.00pm)
Two sides suffering with the fallout from COVID-19 outbreaks - and subsequently suffering form - meet at the Marassi on Saturday evening.
Eleventh-placed Genoa welcome Inter Milan, whose recent dip in form has seen the momentum from last term's excellent Serie A finish squandered, in the hope that several players' return from quarantine can help stem a tide of Inter attacks.
We say: Genoa 1-2 Inter Milan
Saturday's game provides an ideal opportunity for Inter to kick-start their season at the expense of their recent whipping boys, Genoa.
As both sides employ largely similar 3-5-2 setups, the Milan giants can take advantage of their greater individual quality man-for-man to register a much-needed away win at the Marassi.
Our tipster partners are predicting an away win.
Lazio vs. Bologna (Saturday, 7.45pm)
Inconsistent Lazio welcome struggling Bologna to Stadio Olimpico on Saturday, looking to capitalise on a confidence-boosting Champions League victory over Bundesliga heavyweights Borussia Dortmund.
Simone Inzaghi's side recovered from a shock 3-0 defeat at Sampdoria last weekend to register three valuable Group F points on Tuesday night.
Their opponents from Emilia-Romagna must overcome a wretched run of Serie A results - the latest being a spectacular implosion to lose against Sassuolo, after leading by two goals with half an hour remaining.
We say: Lazio 1-1 Bologna
With both sides' Serie A start falling short of expectations, there is already pressure on them to make up lost ground. Lazio, in particular, are still struggling to match their scintillating pre-pandemic form.
Bologna can take just a fourth point of the season by breaching the recently unreliable Biancocelesti defence - if they can replicate last week's performance without the end-of-game meltdown.
Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
