OUR man in Rome and resident Serie A expert Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) looks ahead to Sunday's action.
Cagliari v Sassuolo | Sunday 26th August, 19:30
Sassuolo are playing attractive stuff under new boss Roberto De Zerbi this season.
He's played good stuff with his previous sides, and will be fare better with Sassuolo's quality frontline, led by Domenico Berardi. They can cause problems in Cagrliari.
I like both teams to score, here – it's 17/20 (William Hill).
Genoa v Empoli | Sunday 26th August, 19:30
Empoli were Serie B's best side last season. They were stunning in attack and will be fine to watch if they approach games the same way this season.
As a result, I'm keen on goals once again. Yes, the Genonani are quite negative, but Empoli should be aggressive in attack and so this game could be more open than the prices suggest. Over 2.5 goals is 20/23 with Bet Victor.
Fiorentina v Chievo | Sunday 26th August, 19:30
Chievo put a good shift in against Juventus last Saturday but eventually lost out 3-2 in injury time. I expect them to still be pointless come this evening.
They face a Fiorentina side who have had a decent transfer window. The quality of Federico Chiesa and Cholito Simeone should probe too much
Over 1.5 Fiorentina goals is a nice price at 8/13 (Bet365)
Inter v Torino | Sunday 26th August, 19:30 | Eleven Sports
Inter were Italy's most disappointing team last weekend, losing without reply against Sassuolo. They've been dubbed title contender, but I just don't see it.
They can however, overcome Torino, who will approach this in a negative manager. An Inter win with under 4.5 goals is 10/11 with Ladbrokes.
Udinese v Sampdoria | Sunday 26th August, 19:30
Whilst goals are unlikely in Milan, they are set to flow in Udine.
New manager Julio Velazquez is trying to implement a Spanish style of play, but it will take time.
In the meantime, he's up against the experienced Marco Giampaolo's Sampdoria side.
Udinese aren't settled and I fancy goals here. They are struggling at the back and so over 2.5 goals appeals at 47/50 (Marathon)
Cagliari v Sassuolo – Both teams to score (17/20 William Hill)
Genoa v Empoli – Over 2.5 goals (20/23 Bet Victor)
Fiorentina v Chievo – Over 1.5 Fiorentina goals (8/13 Bet365)
Inter v Torino – Inter to win & under 4.5 goals (10/11 Ladbrokes)
Udinese v Sampdoria – Over 2.5 goals (47/50 Marathon)
