In addition, Inter Milan host Genoa and AS Roma are on the road again, at Fiorentina
The 11th round in Italy’s Serie A could give some of the chasing pack the opportunity to cut the lead Juventus currently hold at the top of the table. Napoli look to get three points on the board when they welcome a struggling Empoli side, while Inter will hope to continue their impressive recent form against Cagliari while Roma travel to Fiorentina.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, Napoli host Empoli on Friday night (2 November) looking to get back to winning ways. Carlo Ancelotti’s side has drawn their last two games across all competitions and sit six points back on table toppers Juventus – playing earlier this round gives them the chance to cut that lead to just three points, temporarily at least.
And Napoli can come into this game with confidence, having won their last three matches in a row against Empoli. The visitors have not won a league encounter since the opening day of the season and have collected just six points from their 10 games played thus far.
It is therefore of little surprise that it is Napoli who come into this match as the overwhelming favourites to take all three points. You can back the home side to walk away victorious at a price of just 1.25, while Empoli are all the way out at 11.00 to record a shock win – a draw is priced in the middle at 6.00, according to Oddsshark.
A comfortable, 2-0 win for Napoli comes in at 6.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$32.50 pay out. In addition, you could more than double your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.50.
Inter look to extend winning streak against Genoa
On the Saturday afternoon, Inter Milan will be expecting to continue their streak of winning matches in Serie A when Genoa visit the San Siro. Inter have won their last six league outings in a row, helping them climb to second in the table, and comprehensively dispatched Lazio 3-0 in Rome this past Monday night.
They come up against a Genoa side who have not won any of their last three league outings and sit in the middle of the table. The Rossoblu managed to hold champions Juventus to a 1-1 draw a couple of weeks back, and remain the only side to take points off the Old Lady so far this season, but we are expecting Inter to make it seven league wins on the bounce this weekend.
Inter are the clear favourites to take all three points and are priced at just 1.36 to do so. Genoa are out at 8.50 to pick up an away win, with a draw priced in the middle at 4.75.
A comprehensive 3-0 win for Inter is priced competitively at 9.00, offering close to a ten-fold return on any investment. In addition, you could more than double your money with a combo bet of an Inter win and a “No” to both teams scoring, which is priced at 2.25.
Struggling Fiorentina and Roma set to lock horns
And finally, two sides desperately struggling for form and confidence will meet when Fiorentina take on AS Roma. Fiorentina have not won for three matches and sit sixth in the table, although they are unbeaten in their last five games on home soil.
Roma, meanwhile, have taken just one point from their last two games and have slipped to eighth in the standings. They can take heart from the fact, however, that they are unbeaten in their last two games on the road.
And while the betting is close, it is Roma who come in as slight favourites to take the points in this one. You can back the club from the capital to get back to winning ways at 2.50, with Fiorentina only slightly higher at 2.70 to do the same – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at 3.40.
A 2-1 win for Roma comes in at 9.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$47.50 pay out. You could also more than quadruple any investment with aa combo bet of a Roma win and both teams to score, which is priced at 4.33.
