Using data from Infogol, Chloe Beresford provides scoreline predictions from Serie A as the action continues in Italy's top flight.
Jose Mourinho has looked back to his very best since arriving in the Italian capital, overseeing some impressive performances from AS Roma and striker Tammy Abraham.
New boys go head to head
Two newly promoted teams clash here, and there is no doubt that Empoli have had the better start. They may have lost 3-1 to Lazio on opening day, but they followed that up with a 1-0 win over Juventus that sent their fans delirious.
Meanwhile, Venezia have lost both their first two games back in the top flight, conceding five goals while failing to get on the scoresheet themselves in either outing. The Infogol model expects goals here, suggesting their is a 54% chance of over 2.5 goals, and that informs the tip of a 2-1 victory for the home side.
Back the 2-1 @ 7.513/2
Can Juventus rediscover their best?
Juventus have struggled so far this season, drawing with Udinese before that aforementioned loss to Empoli. That is hardly ideal preparation for an encounter with Napoli, but the Bianconeri are expected to raise their game and the Infogol model indicates that the away side have a 51% chance of grabbing a much needed victory. With their opponents having won each of their opening two games and boasting a 12-match unbeaten run at home however, the tip here is to back a draw with goals.

Tough test for new-look Viola
Having looked sharp in their loss to Roma and then hugely impressive in beating Torino, this match is sure to be another difficult challenge for a rapidly improving Fiorentina. New boss Vincenzo Italiano has La Viola playing an up-tempo style, and we know to expect a similar approach from Atalanta. There are sure to be goals here, and the tip is a narrow victory for an Atalanta side who hope to once again finish in the top four and secure Champions League football yet again.

Inter to march on
Inter may have lost Antonio Conte and Romelu Lukaku, but they have yet to miss a beat. Simone Inzaghi is now on the bench and he has helped the Nerazzurri maintain the impressive pace they set last season, rolling to comfortable victories over Genoa and Hellas Verona. Samp have yet to score this term, losing 1-0 to AC Milan and drawing 0-0 with Sassuolo, and the Infogol model expects them to suffer another defeat here.
Back the 0-2 @ 8.515/2
Two teams desperate for victory
Something of an early relegation clash here as Cagliari arrive at this fixture having failed to win any of their last five Serie A matches. Meanwhile, Genoa have suffered losses at the hands of Inter and Napoli already this term and will be eager to get back on track against an opponent they have beaten as recently as May. The home side have looked much improved under Leonardo Semplici however, and the Infogol model gives them just a 29% chance of losing this encounter.
Back the 1-0 @ 7.513/2
Udinese to grab more points
Drawing with Juve and beating Venezia means Udinese have got their season off to a great start, while a 6-1 loss to Lazio has immediately put Spezia boss Thiago Motta under pressure. The former Inter midfielder won just twice during his 10-game stint at the helm of Genoa, and it seems little has changed. As a result, the tip is for the away side to pick up three more points.

Toro to finally win
The Infogol model believes Torino can consider themselves unfortunate to have lost their opening two matches, narrowly defeated by Atalanta and Fiorentina. Yet there is no doubt that Serie A new boys Salernitana found themselves heavily outplayed in their losses at the hands of Bologna and Roma. They might have Franck Ribery in the starting XI this weekend, but the tip here is still to back the home side as Ivan Juric gets the Granata back on track.

Sarri to outwit Pioli
While AC Milan have done well under Stefano Pioli, the Coach has often struggled when he comes up against the top tacticians in Serie A. It is no different with Maurizio Sarri, the new Lazio boss losing just four of his 13 meetings with the man in the opposition dugout for Sunday's clash at San Siro. Both teams arrive with maximum points from their opening two games, but the tip is for Lazio to snatch a victory this time out.
Back the 1-2 @ 10.09/1
Jose wins again
Jose Mourinho has looked back to his very best since arriving in the Italian capital, overseeing some impressive performances from AS Roma. Sassuolo narrowly beat Hellas and then drew with Sampdoria, showing that new Coach Alessio Dionisi still has a lot of work to do to recapture the form the Neroverdi showed last season under Roberto De Zerbi.
Back the 2-1 @ 7.513/2
Hellas looking helpless
Hellas Verona have struggled since Eusebio Di Francesco took charge, losing their first two matches of the season and conceding six goals in the process. In contrast, Bologna look difficult to beat once again, winning against Salernitana before holding Atalanta to a 0-0 draw, and it is with those results in mind that the tip is a narrow win for the home side.
