Can Genoa pick up some vital points against Torino, will Juventus finally get back to winning ways, and can Napoli outlast high-scoring Atalanta? Read on for our best bets for the games in Serie A this weekend. 

Genoa vs Torino (Saturday, 14:00 BST)

Genoa have struggled this season as they have been unable to definitely secure their place in Serie A for next year. 32 games have resulted in eight wins, 10 draws and 14 losses, while they have also conceded 51 times, a worrying amount for a team that are being dragged in a relegation battle this year. Torino meanwhile sit on 50 points after a season that has been hugely impressive. 12 wins, 14 draws and six losses is a very good return, while they have scored 41 times and conceded just 29 goals as they continue to impress. Their points tally means they are just three short of a European spot, while they are only five points behind AC Milan in fourth and the final Champions League spot. 

At home this year, Genoa have looked fairly good, winning six, drawing six and losing four. Their problems have come from their away from then, although it should be noted that they lost their last home game, while they have only won once in their last eight games. Torino by contrast have been very good at home, but questionable on the road. Just three wins away from home is poor, but they have only lost once, drawing a massive 12 times as they have proved very difficult to beat. Indeed, their last two away games have ended in draws and, with this in mind, we are backing yet another stalemate in this one. 

Juventus vs Fiorentina (Saturday, 17:00 BST)

Juventus have looked awesome this year but, in recent weeks, they have faltered somewhat. 32 games have resulted in 27 wins, three draws and two losses which sees them sit on 84 points, meaning they are a massive 17 clear of Napoli in second. With their venture in the Champions League now over courtesy of a shock loss to Ajax, they will want to restore the feel-good factor and win the league as soon as possible. Fiorentina arrive sitting in 10th in the league after a good season that seems set to end in safety. Eight wins, 16 draws and eight losses along with 46 goals scored and 39 conceded have resulted in 40 points, meaning they are 11 clear of Empoli in 18th with just a handful of games to go. 

Despite losing at home to Ajax in midweek, Juventus retain their unbeaten home record in the league, winning 14 and drawing two of their 16 games. In fact, they have not dropped points at home in their last four games, and they will be desperate to bounce back from their two-straight defeats, with a loss to SPAL last weekend compounding a bad week for the reigning-Italian champions. Fiorentina have struggled on the road, winning three, drawing eight and losing five, while the travelling side have not won a single away game since they beat SPAL on February 17, with three losses in this time. With this in mind, along with the fact that Juventus will be desperate to win a first home game in two and give their fans something to cheer about, we think Juve will win comfortably against a Fiorentina side that have struggled on the road. 

Napoli vs Atalanta (Monday, 18:00 BST)

Napoli are clearly the best of the rest in Serie A this year as they have impressed in a campaign which was always likely to end without a league trophy once Juventus had opened up a lead at the top. 20 wins, seven draws and five losses have come along with 61 goals scored and 28 conceded, with the 67 points they have picked up seeing them hold a seven point lead over Inter Milan in third, but they are a massive 17 short of Juve at the top. Now, attentions will turn to next year, with their domestic campaign one that will likely see them finish a long way short of the reigning-champions. Atalanta have also impressed this campaign, winning 15, drawing eight and losing nine, while they have smashed an impressive 64 goals, conceding 41 times. Atalanta’s points tally of 53 means they currently sit in the last European spot, but they will have aspirations of chasing down AC Milan in fourth and the final Champions League spot, with only two points between the sides. 

In this one, we think it will be a high scoring game. 125 goals scored between the pair is very impressive and we think this incredible attacking talent will show in what should be a very entertaining game. At home, Napoli have looked very good, winning 11, drawing four and losing just once, while Atalanta have won eight on the road, but they have drawn three and lost five times, while they drew 0-0 with Inter Milan in their last game on the road in what was a surprisingly low-scoring match. In this one, we think Napoli will maintain their impressive home record, while we think both sides will score as the two have impressed in front of goal too.
