Sassuolo vs. Inter Milan (Saturday, 2.00pm)
Inter's recent results had already been mixed, but the hammer-blow of a 2-0 midweek loss to Real Madrid, which seriously jeopardises their further involvement in Europe this term, will be hard to recover from in such short order.
We say: Sassuolo 2-2 Inter Milan
Both clubs are rich in attacking talent and are unafraid of taking the initiative in important games such as this.
Though Sassuolo seemingly have more to defend - with their excellent start seeing them up near the top of the table - the pressure on Inter to win on Saturday is far greater. Goals from familiar sources such as Berardi and Lukaku are almost a given in what is sure to be a close-run encounter at the Mapei Stadium.
Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.
Benevento vs. Juventus (Saturday, 5.00pm)
The Bianconeri, however, will accept nothing less than maximum points from the long trip south, finding themselves currently off the frantic pace being set by league leaders AC Milan in a potentially fascinating Scudetto race.
We say: Benevento 1-3 Juventus
A spirited fight from Benevento is almost certain, but this is an encounter worthy of 'David v Goliath' billing.
Juventus are gradually building momentum as they try to leave behind a shaky start to the season, though selection issues in key positions will still hamper them on Saturday.
Nonetheless, their rotating cast of star names in the attacking third should have more than enough guile to pick apart a home rearguard which has already conceded 20 league goals.
Our tipster partners are predicting an away win.
Atalanta vs. Hellas Verona (Saturday, 7.45pm)
Atalanta BC welcome Hellas Verona to Bergamo on Saturday, bolstered by their superb win at Anfield in midweek, after Gian Piero Gasperini's side downed English champions Liverpool in the Champions League.
Verona, meanwhile, tumbled out of the Coppa Italia on the back of a 2-0 defeat to high-flyers Sassuolo last weekend.
We say: Atalanta BC 2-1 Hellas Verona
Atalanta can ride the wave of their Champions League triumph over Liverpool by returning home to pick off a Verona side whose away record has been pretty paltry in 2020.
Though Ivan Juric's side can boast a fine defensive record so far, the multiple threats posed by La Dea's adaptable strikeforce cannot be denied. Duvan Zapata can break his barren run here to put the Gialloblu to the sword.
Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.
