More previews and betting tips on the upcoming Serie A fixtures this weekend.

Juventus will be looking to move one step closer to the Serie A title this weekend when they face relegation-threatened Lecce on Friday evening.

Maurizio Sarri’s troops were beaten in the final of the Coppa Italia earlier this month but they got back to winning ways when they beat Bologna 2-0 on Monday evening.

Juventus’ home form has been nothing short of superb and they are unbeaten in seven heading into Friday’s encounter.

Lecce remain in the relegation zone after three successive defeats in Serie A but a win would lift them up to 16th for the time being.

However, Juventus should have too much and they are 5/6* to win to nil.

Relegation Rivals

Lecce’s relegation rivals, Brescia and Genoa, are also in action this weekend and they will meet on Saturday afternoon.

Brescia fans will be labelling the contest a must-win game, with eight points separating the pair.

Diego Lopez’s side remain bottom of the table after drawing their last encounter and a repeat of that result is 49/20 when they face Genoa.

Cagliari will welcome Torino to the Sardegna Arena at 16:30 but the highlight of the day sees Lazio entertain Fiorentina at 20:45.

Lazio look like the only team capable of catching Juventus but their 3-2 defeat to Atalanta on Wednesday has dampened their spirits.

At home, they are unbeaten in 10, and are 5/8 to grab all three points on Saturday.

Clash of the Titans on Sunday

As always, Sunday’s action comes thick and fast from Italy’s top flight.

Two giants of European football clash in the opener at 16:15 as Milan welcome Roma to the San Siro. Stefano Pioli watched his side beat Lecce last time out but Roma will pose a much tougher challenger.

A late goal against Sampdoria handed the Giallorossi a 2-1 win on Wednesday and Paulo Fonseca’s men are now without a defeat in five.

Both teams have scored in the last three meetings and punters can get a price of 20/31 for that record to extend to four matches.

At 18:30, four matches kick-off in Italy with Atalanta travelling to Udinese and Sampdoria hosting Bologna.

Mid-table pair Sassuolo and Hellas Verona also meet, while Coppa Italia champions Napoli face 19th-placed SPAL.

Parma v Inter Milan

The final fixture of the weekend sees Parma entertain Inter.

Parma still have aspirations of playing in Europe next season and they are on a two-game unbeaten run heading into the upcoming contest.

As for Inter, they should have enough firepower with Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez, who have 31 league goals between them this season, ready to shine in the final third.

The Belgium international, who has thrived since joining from Manchester United in 2019, is 11/4 to score first, while Martinez can be backed at 5/4 to find the back of the net anytime.
