Old Lady travel to Empoli, while Napoli host Roma and Inter Milan face Lazio away
The 10th round of action in Italy’s Serie A will see current champions Juventus get back to winning ways after being held to a 1-1 draw by Genoa in the previous round. Meanwhile, there are two key clashes as Napoli welcome AS Roma to the San Paolo and in-form Inter head to the capital to take on Lazio.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, Empoli welcome champions Juventus on Saturday afternoon (27 October). Empoli have made a disappointing start to the current campaign and have won just one of their opening nine league encounters – they find themselves in the relegation zone with just six points and are unlikely to take anything from a team as technically strong as the Old Lady.
Juventus, to little surprise, are top of the pile, unbeaten and with 25 points to their name already. They have already beaten Napoli this season and are unlikely to face too many problems this weekend.
And it is indeed the visitors who come into this tie as the favourites to take all three points. You can back a Juventus win at just 1.22, while Empoli are all the way out at 13.00 to secure their second league win of the season – a draw is priced in the middle at 6.00, according to Oddsshark.
A comprehensive, 3-0 win for Juventus is priced at 7.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$35 pay out. In addition, you could more than double your money by backing the champions to win both halves at a price of 2.37.
Napoli host inconsistent Roma
On the Sunday evening, Napoli welcome AS Roma to the San Paolo looking to keep up the pressure on Juventus. Carlo Ancelotti’s side currently sit second in the table, four points behind Juventus having won their last two league games in a row – a win here would look to be a must if they are to remain in the early title hunt.
Roma, by way of comparison, continue to struggle for consistency. The club from the capital are down in seventh place, having won less than half of their matches played so far this season, and this past weekend lost 2-0 at home to Spal.
And it is Napoli who come into the match as clear favourites to make it three league wins on the bounce. You can back the home side to wrap up the points at just 1.75, while Roma are out at 4.60 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.60.
A comfortable, 2-0 win for Napoli is priced at 9.50, offering close to a ten-fold return on any investment. In addition, you can more than double your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at a price of 2.10.
Lazio look to halt Inter in their tracks
And finally, Lazio will look to put an end to Inter Milan’s recent winning streak when they host Inter Milan in the capital on Monday night. Lazio have won their last two league outings and sit fourth in the table, seven points off Juventus at the top of the pile.
After a slow start Inter have finally found their form, winning their last seven matches in a row across all competitions. This past weekend they beat city rivals AC Milan 1-0 in a hotly fought derby clash, and can come into this away game brimming with confidence as they look to continue their winning run.
And while the betting is close in this one, it is home side Lazio who come in as the slight favourites to snatch victory. You can more than double your money by backing Lazio to take the points at 2.37, while Inter are only slightly higher at 2.87 to make it eight wins in a row – a draw would look to be the least likely result, and is priced accordingly at 3.40.
A 2-1 away win for Inter is priced competitively at 11.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment. You could also back a combo bet of an Inter win and both teams to score at a price of 5.00.
