Hosts look the best side in Italy at the moment, I feel the signing of Ludovic Giuly was a masterstroke, he was never given enough game time in Barcelona. Totti is playing at the top of his game and Arsene Wenger has singled them out as potential Champions League winners this season.They have won all 4 starts without conceding.

Juve came down to earth with a 1-0 home loss to Udinese, but had enough chances to win that, however, they look a little slow in key positions and conceded a lot of chances in the previous lucky 3-2 win at Cagliari. Both Camoranesi and Zebina are missing today.

4.5 points Roma -1/2 ball 1.98 asian line.


Island derby. Cagliari have had very much the upper hand in these meetings, but I have no doubt that Palermo are the stronger team. Both are missing key players and this is a game that neither can afford to lose. We can expect a cautious approach from both and a draw looks far and away the most likely outcome. Last season Cagliari lost their league opener, as this and then went on to draw 5 of the next 7, not an easy place to get a win and they rarely lose two in a row, a draw !

4 points draw 3.0 general quote.


Nightmare display from Inter in midweek, from which they will want to bounce back as quickly as possible. If they had to choose an away fixture, this would probably be it, Livorno have conceded 10 in 3 starts, look in turmoil and are missing vital midfielder Jose Vidigal. More options for Inter, who can call on the services of 4 players who return from suspension and they will have a far better balance, especially in defence.

6 points Inter -3/4 ball 1.75 asian line.

Good Luck.
