Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Sunday's Serie A matches, including Lazio vs. Juventus.

An eagerly-anticipated clash of two sides which memorably fought out last season's scudetto race to near the death, Lazio meet Juventus at Stadio Olimpico in Serie A's blockbuster early Sunday kickoff.

The champions will travel from Turin buoyed by consecutive 4-1 victories, while Lazio have been resurgent in the league of late despite back-to-back Champions League draws.

We say: Lazio 1-2 Juventus


Given Lazio's current predicament and their ongoing defensive frailties, it is exceptionally difficult to see anything other than an away win for unbeaten Juventus on Sunday.

With the beloved Bonucci-Chiellini partnership once more renewed, coach Pirlo's gradual re-building job can be laid on solid foundations, with the in-form attack taking care of business at the other the end.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Atalanta vs. Inter Milan (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Separated by just one point - and last season by only one Serie A place - near neighbours Atalanta BC and Inter Milan clash in Bergamo on Sunday, with both pride and a place on the coat-tails of leaders AC Milan at stake.

Dispiriting defeats for either side in Champions League action during the week should not dampen fans' anticipation of this potentially end-to-end encounter between two of the top six.

We say: Atalanta BC 2-3 Inter Milan


Goals are almost a locked-in guarantee during this clash of entertainingly inconsistent teams, as both sides fail to settle on a consistent defensive lineup.

Even in the absence of the ever dependable Romelu Lukaku, Inter have the resources to take apart Atalanta's frail rearguard. Not without a number of scares at the other end though, with Colombian sharpshooters Duvan Zapata and substitute deluxe Luis Muriel poised to strike back in kind.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Genoa vs. Roma (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Without a win in five Serie A games, struggling Genoa take on in-form Roma on Sunday afternoon at Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

The visiting Giallorossi are now looking for three wins on the spin, having followed an impressive dismissal of Fiorentina last week with victory in Europe on Thursday.

We say: Genoa 0-2 Roma


The gulf in form and class will be just too much for the home side to bridge on Sunday, with ruthless Roma switching up a gear in recent weeks.

Genoa are set to linger around the lower echelons of the table for some time, as we expect another pointless encounter to leave them on just five points from their first seven Serie A games.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Torino vs. Crotone (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Struggling Serie A duo Torino and Crotone face one another on Sunday with the visitors still searching for their first league victory of the campaign.

The Toro ended their run of five league matches without a win last weekend, while Crotone narrowly lost 2-1 to Atalanta BC.

We say: Torino 3-2 Crotone


Goals are to be expected as Torino, who have found the net in their last 12 Serie A home games against teams promoted from Serie B, face a Crotone side where six of their last seven matches in all competitions have seen both teams score. If Belotti is fit for the hosts, his quality inside the box could be the deciding factor.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Bologna vs. Napoli (Sunday, 5.00pm)

Napoli will be aiming to climb back into the Serie A top four when they travel to Bologna on Sunday.

Gennaro Gattuso's side lost 2-0 to Sassuolo last weekend to drop to fifth, while Bologna got only a second win of the season as they beat Cagliari 3-2.

We say: Bologna 1-3 Napoli


Based on Bologna's poor defensive record, Napoli's talented frontline could come into their own on Sunday. Gattuso's side should claim victory, but Bologna are also in good scoring form, so a clean sheet seems unlikely for either team.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

AC Milan vs. Hellas Verona (Sunday, 7.45pm)

League leaders AC Milan welcome Hellas Verona to San Siro on Sunday as two of the most effective defences in Europe go head to head.

Verona visit the seemingly unstoppable Rossoneri, riding high in 7th place in the Serie A standings on 11 points and looking to build on a positive start to the season.

We say: AC Milan 2-1 Hellas Verona


Certainly an intriguing encounter lies in store at San Siro, as Milan expect to bounce back from Europa League calamity with yet another league win.

Verona's as yet tough defence will have their mettle fully tested by the pace and precision of Rafael Leao, plus the intimidating penalty-box presence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. So it is Milan's prowess up front which should prove the difference on Sunday night.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.
