Serie A: Turin derby under way!

Genoa vs Inter Milan
Inter Milan finally hope to put behind the bad run of form and build on the win over Bologna when the team takes on Genoa this weekend. Inter Milan have gone through a terrible patch of form that has seen them be involved in a lot of draws, but the major positive for the team would be remaining in the hunt for the Champions League. At the same time, Genoa have been struggling down in the bottom half of the table but the recent set of results have lifted the club closer into the top half. Genoa will be hoping to maintain this run.

Torino vs Juventus
The most anticipated match for Torino, against local rivals Juventus in the Turin derby, gets underway this weekend with the visitors coming in as the second placed team. It is an unusual position for Juventus, but they have been involved in a title challenge with Napoli as the second favourites. The involvement in the Champions League could hamper the team’s preparation for this match, while Torino come on the back of an impressive set of results in order to be in the best possible shape. Unbeaten in the last five, Torino have the potential to cause an upset at this moment.

Napoli vs SPAL
Napoli will be looking to grasp the top of the table with both hands, as the team were extremely thankful to Juventus still remaining just one point behind the table. Napoli have been not letting go of the top spot, while the two teams have been able to build up a sizeable advantage over the rest of the division. The Napoli outfit are coming up against SPAL who have been unable to win in the last seven games. SPAL remain in the relegation trouble and several points away from safety. However, Napoli were involved in the Champions League midweek action where they received a major setback.

AC Milan vs Sampdoria
AC Milan have been able to continue their excellent in all competitions but only after a victory over SPAL in the latest game. Milan will not be judged on this result over the course of the campaign, but this was immediately followed up with a victory in the Europa league. Milan will take a lot of confidence from these two results, but they are yet to get into the top four places. Meanwhile, Sampdoria are three points ahead of Milan coming into the match and they will be looking to extend this advantage even further. Sampdoria will be happy with the points since the matches at the San Siro.
