Meanwhile, Frosinone look to continue recent upturn in form against Fiorentina, while Napoli head to Genoa
The 12th round of matches in Italy’s Serie A could well be a decisive one, with giants AC Milan welcoming current league champions Juventus to the San Siro. In addition, Napoli will look to put pressure on the leaders when they travel to Genoa, while Frosinone will hope to climb away from trouble when they host Fiorentina.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, Frosinone host Fiorentina on Friday night (9 November). The home side are unbeaten in three matches but remain next to bottom in the league table, after picking up just one win and six points from 11 games played so far.
They have, however, scored four goals in their last two home games and will be confident of finding the back of the net here as well. Fiorentina have not won for four matches and have lost two of their last three outings on the road.
Nevertheless, it is Fiorentina who come into this clash as the clear favourites to take all three points. You can back the visitors to win away at just 1.75 while Frosinone, despite home advantage, are out at 4.75 to pick up a vital victory – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.50, according to Oddsshark.
And given the recent form of both sides, we fancy the spoils to be shared. A 1-1 draw is priced at 6.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$32.50 pay out, while you could more than quadruple your money by backing a combo bet of a draw with both teams to score, which comes in at 4.75.
Napoli look to climb table away to Genoa
On the Saturday evening, Napoli will look to climb the table when they visit out of form Genoa. The home side have not won for five league games and have slipped down to 13th in the standings having lost their last two encounters, although they have scored in each of their last five home matches.
Napoli, in stark contrast, are unbeaten in their last four matches and sit third in the table, six points behind Juventus. They have scored in each of their last eight games and one thing we can expect on Saturday night is plenty of goals and entertainment.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, it is Napoli who come into this one as the clear favourites to take the points. The visitors are at just 1.57 to win on the road, with Genoa out at 5.50 to get back to winning ways – a draw is priced in the middle at 5.00.
But this is a game we are expecting Napoli to win fairly comfortably. A 3-1 win for the visitors is priced competitively at 12.00, offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while you could more than triple your money by backing a combo bet of a Napoli win and both teams to score at 3.25.
Milan out to get one over on Juventus
And finally, the big game in Serie A this weekend comes on Sunday as AC Milan welcome champions and league leaders Juventus to the San Siro. Milan look to be finding their best form and sit fourth in the table after three wins in row – they are just four points behind city rivals Inter Milan in second.
Juventus, on the other hand, look to be in with a real chance of running away with the league title once again. They have dropped just two points all season, are the only undefeated team in the league, are scoring at a rate of over 2.2 goals per game and conceding at under a goal a game.
And it is the champions who come in as the favourites to make it four wins in a row across all competitions. The Old Lady are at just 1.85 to take all three points at the San Siro while Milan, despite home advantage and recent form, are out at 4.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.60.
But we expect Milan to cause an upset. A narrow, 1-0 win for the home side is priced at 11.00, while Milan are at 7.00 to win to nil (without Juventus scoring a goal).
