Saturday's Serie A preview: Juve eye eighth consecutive victory

Followers of Italy's Serie A can look forward to three more matches on Saturday, with Juventus and Inter Milan both in action.

This weekend's fixtures have been split across Saturday, Sunday and Monday and there is plenty at stake on the former, with teams fighting to move into the top four.

Relegation-threatened Sassuolo travel to Fiorentina in the first of three matches, while Juventus host Udinese at 17:00. Should Juve fail to win, Inter Milan can climb above them when they travel to Monza at 19:45.

OddsFiorentina 7/10, Draw 14/5, Sassuolo 4/1

Fiorentina will look to consolidate their place in the top 10 in Serie A when they host struggling Sassuolo on Saturday afternoon.

Vincenzo Italiano's men were held to a 1-1 draw by Monza in midweek in their first match since the World Cup, but they have still only lost one of their previous five in the Italian top flight.

While they have conceded 10 goals in four games at home, they welcome a Sassuolo side that are bang out of form.

I Neroverdi have lost four of their previous five league matches, and they have failed to score in three of those matches. Away from home, Sassuolo have lost four on the spin since October, and they could not trouble the scoreline in matches against Napoli, Empoli and Bologna.

A home win to nil catches the eye at 2/1 in the Result / Both Teams to Score market, while a 2-0 Correct Score is available at 15/2.

The Old Lady look back to their best

Arkadiusz Milik was the hero for Juventus in midweek as his 91st-minute goal ensured they extended their winning run without conceding to seven matches by beating Cremonese 1-0.

The Old Lady are now seven points behind league-leaders Napoli, but Massimiliano Allegri will be pleased to see his side churning out results after a miserable start to the campaign.

Juventus managed to win just two of their first seven games, but they now look like a force to be reckoned with ahead of Saturday's fixture in Turin.

Udinese have proven to be hard to beat of late, having drawn six of their last eight. While that shows signs of determination, the reality is they have not won in eight Serie A matches.

Their last win on the road came back in October, and their squad will travel to Turin with little confidence. Juve have won 10 of their previous 13 meetings with Udinese, and Allegri has only lost one of his 12 games when facing Le Zebrette as a manager.

Juventus to win to nil at 7/4 looks the way to go in the Result / Both Teams to Score market, especially when they stopped Bologna, Empoli, Inter and Lazio from scoring in their four previous matches at the Allianz Stadium.

OddsMonza 19/4, Draw 10/3, Inter Milan 11/20

Simone Inzaghi's Inter opened up the title race a little in midweek when they beat Napoli 1-0. While Gli Azzurri still hold a five-point cushion over AC Milan, Inter have at least given the chasing pack a chance of catching Luciano Spalletti's side.

Saturday's evening kick-off could be the pick of the three matches, with both sides in good form either side of the break for the World Cup.

Monza have won four of their last five at home in Serie A, keeping a clean sheet in all of those fixtures. Inter have secured three victories in five on their travels, scoring 10 goals during that time.

The Nerazzurri usually have no trouble beating newly-promoted sides, and they are unbeaten in 25 Serie A games against such opponents.

However, Saturday's tie could be entertaining from the first whistle until the last, and while Inzaghi's men should come out on top, they may need to find the net on more than one occasion to get the three points.

Odds of 21/10 are available for Inter to win and for both teams to score, and that bet would have landed in six of their last 10 games on the road. They last kept a clean sheet on their travels in April, and there looks to be every chance of a high-scoring game at the U-Power Stadium.
