Cagliari vs. Fiorentina (Sunday, 11.30am)
The hosts come into this clash on the back of two narrow defeats in the league and cup, whilst the visitors have had an excellent past 10 days, which has seen them win back-to-back encounters and score 11 goals in the process.
We say: Cagliari 1-3 Fiorentina
Despite Cagliari's recent upturn in form, their visitors should have too much quality to see them off in this one on Sunday, particularly if they can replicate the kind of attacking form displayed in their last two outings.
A trip to a relegation-threatened opponent is the ideal opportunity to add more goals to their ever-increasing tally, and the likes of Vlahovic will be expected to get their name on the scoresheet.
Napoli vs. Salernitana (Sunday, 2.00pm)
The Campanian counterparts meet at Stadio Maradona with the hosts having picked up two wins and a draw since Serie A resumed, and their visitors seeking just a fourth league win of their comeback campaign.
We say: Napoli 4-0 Salernitana
There is only one viable outcome from this lopsided derby encounter, as Napoli have several men returning to aid their quest to get back in the title race, and their visitors are rock-bottom and beset with absences.
With competition for places back on the agenda for the Partenopei, the likes of Osimhen, Mertens and Lozano will go all out to establish their credentials before upcoming clashes with Inter and Barcelona - resulting in a torrid afternoon for Serie B-bound Salernitana.
Spezia vs. Sampdoria (Sunday, 2.00pm)
The hosts come into this clash following excellent back-to-back victories, whilst the visitors have a new manager in charge for his first game since returning to the club this week.
We say: Spezia 1-1 Sampdoria
Giampaolo is likely to come in and bring some organisation to his Sampdoria side, so with this being his first match back in charge, and with it being away from home, he will be determined not to lose it and could set up to be defensively stubborn.
As a result, and with these sides being evenly matched overall despite their differing form lately, we are predicting this to be a nervy affair that finishes in a draw.
Torino vs. Sassuolo (Sunday, 2.00pm)
Having propelled themselves into contention for an unlikely European place, Torino aim to continue their fine form at the expense of Sassuolo on Sunday, sitting three points above their visitors in the standings.
As the Granata have won their last two games - amid a spell of four wins from five in Serie A - they will now seek a third straight top-flight victory for the first time since September 2019.
We say: Torino 1-1 Sassuolo
Though Sassuolo have not drawn any of their last eight league matches at Stadio Olimpico di Torino, that statistical quirk may be ironed out on Sunday, as the sides play out a low-scoring draw.
In those last eight Turin clashes, 31 goals have been scored by the teams in total - at a rate of nearly four per match - but Torino are a sterner proposition these days and will withstand the visitors' versatile attack.
Empoli vs. Roma (Sunday, 5.00pm)
While the Giallorossi have won back-to-back matches in league and cup, they will arrive at Stadio Carlo Castellani having slipped seven points adrift of the Champions League places - sitting just six above their mid-table hosts.
We say: Empoli 1-2 Roma
Winless for weeks, Empoli have been unable to pick up many points at home, while hit-and-miss Roma are often below-par away.
The visitors' increasing options, following further recruitment in the current transfer window, mean that they can edge a close-fought game by a one-goal margin - at least keeping them in the top-six mix.
AC Milan vs. Juventus (Sunday, 7.45pm)
Separated by seven points and three places in the standings, the Rossoneri are just two points adrift of the summit despite Monday's setback, while their Bianconeri counterparts have moved to within touching distance of the top four thanks to some improved form.
We say: AC Milan 2-2 Juventus
Following the 1-1 draw in September, Milan and Juventus are in line to draw both meetings in a Serie A campaign for the first time since the 1991-92 season.
In fact, the two giants of Calcio have not drawn any of their last nine league encounters at San Siro, but with both sides recently improving in the final third, a close-fought affair could have several twists and turns as it reaches its climax.
