Genoa vs. Fiorentina (Saturday, 2.00pm)
While the Grifone got off the mark in Cagliari, their visitors were surprise winners over Atalanta - with a familiar name dominating the scoresheet.
We say: Genoa 1-1 Fiorentina
Little has separated these sides in recent times, and they may remain locked together again at the end of 90 minutes on Saturday.
Fiorentina are surely a team on the up after some time spent in the doldrums, but Genoa boast plenty of experience which can help them dig out a point against one of their probable mid-table rivals.
Inter Milan vs. Bologna (Saturday, 5.00pm)
Though the Nerazzurri were beaten by Real Madrid in midweek, they have made a promising start to life under Simone Inzaghi, while their visitors sit sixth in Serie A and remain unbeaten so far.
We say: Inter Milan 2-1 Bologna
Though it may not be straightforward, Inter can get back on the winning trail with victory over their Emilian visitors, who will see their unbeaten start come to an end.
Even if the Nerazzurri rotate their considerable resources, a formidable attack can surely breach Bologna's defence on more than one occasion.
Salernitana vs. Atalanta (Saturday, 7.45pm)
For La Dea, just a point from their two Serie A matches either side of the international break was followed by Tuesday's draw in the Champions League, while the home team remain pointless and rooted to the foot of the table.
We say: Salernitana 1-3 Atalanta BC
Salernitana and Atalanta have faced each other only twice in Serie A throughout their long histories - recording a pair of goalless draws in the 1947-48 season.
In fact, the clubs have not met since an encounter in Serie B nearly 20 years ago, but they are unlikely to go without scoring on this occasion, as the visitors have scored twice in each of their last two outings - suggesting that even Luis Muriel's absence cannot stop them from getting back on the goal trail this weekend.
