Fiorentina vs. Udinese (Wednesday, 5.00pm)
Since this article was published, this game has been called off due to a coronavirus outbreak in the Udinese squad. A new date for the game will be confirmed in due course.
Vincenzo Italiano's men played out a 1-1 draw with Hellas Verona before the winter hiatus, while the visitors' proposed clash with Salernitana was postponed.
We say: Fiorentina 3-1 Udinese
An entertaining spectacle should be in store between two sides who have no problems making the net ripple, but Udinese's astounding losing streak in this fixture will likely be extended here.
With Vlahovic in red-hot form and French title-winner Ikone looking to hit the ground running, we expect Fiorentina's European charge to gather pace with plenty of goals on the way.
Atalanta vs. Torino (Wednesday, 7.15pm)
Since this article was published, this game has been called off due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the Torino squad. A new date for the game will be confirmed in due course.
Two losses from their last four games - plus ending 2021 with a goalless draw against lowly Genoa - saw La Dea exit the Champions League and slip to fourth in Serie A, so they seek better fortunes as the action resumes after the winter break.
We say: Atalanta BC 2-1 Torino
Both sides will hope that they can turn over a new leaf for the new year, as Atalanta's all-out attacking has not translated to sufficient points at the Gewiss Stadium, and Torino are too often abysmal outside of Turin.
The hosts have the best chance of doing so, however, as their greater individual quality in the final third should prove decisive.
Bologna vs. Inter Milan (Wednesday, 7.15pm)
Since this article was published, this game has been called off due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the Bologna squad. A new date for the game will be confirmed in due course.
Crowned 'Winter Champions' just before the mid-season break, the Nerazzurri have been relentless since their last league loss back in October, so will make formidable opponents for an inconsistent home side.
We say: Bologna 1-3 Inter Milan
Unbeaten in their last 11 league fixtures ahead of the game, the visitors can continue their positive momentum on Thursday lunchtime, as they visit one of their favourite sides to meet.
Recent dominance over Bologna - and an enviable record away from home - certainly points to free-scoring Inter claiming another victory to start 2022 in familiar style.
