Inter is Inter and betting against the squad in Serie A is similar to betting against Barcelona in La Liga.  In other words you never should consider it.  But Sampdoria has quietly climbed back up to fifth place in the table and who knows maybe they are a real contender for a top four spot.  But this week will likely be a setback after that critical win over Fiorentina last week.

Final Prediction: Inter 3-1   

Bari-AC Milan

Two of the best Serie A defenses face-off this weekend as the tough new boys play host to third place Milan.  And Bari is currently experiencing a bit of a cold streak over the last few weeks including a loss to lowly Atalanta two weeks back.  The club still is comfortably away from the relegation zone, but losses against 19th place squads can quickly spell trouble in a balanced bottom half of the league.  Milan should nip at Roma’s heels with a victory this weekend.  The club lost earlier in the week to Man U, but Ronaldinho looks outstanding recently and he will provide at least one goal for the away club.

Final Prediction: Milan 2-0


Juve snapped that awful losing streak with a 3-2 win over Genoa.  Then the club continued their offensive presence in a victory over Ajax in their Europa League match earlier this week.  Now the club is beginning to roll and Del Piero looks like he is becoming comfortable with his new winger spot.  Juve will begin the push for the top four now and they should handle a solid Bologna club.

Final Prediction: Juve 2-1
