We’re continuing this season’s Serie A predictions with a 4/1-plus Saturday treble from the latest round of fixtures in Italy’s top division.
Napoli were runaway champions last term but both Milan giants and Juventus are expected to mount a bigger challenge this time.

AC Milan to beat Fiorentina @ 93/100
Milan are on a four-match winless streak in Serie A which has seen them fall eight points behind city rivals Inter, who are in pole position.
Although dropping points to Juventus and champions Napoli may not give cause for concern, defeat to Udinese at home, followed by a 2-2 draw at Lecce, will do.
Stefano Pioli’s men were in control of the sliding Salentini last time out but saw two points slip from their grasp and had Olivier Giroud dismissed late on.
Fiorentina, themselves, are also failing to hit the heights, with a win and four defeats since their stunning 3-1 success at champions Napoli in early October.
That win came last time out, though, with Bologna edged out at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Last season’s contests both ended in 2-1 home wins and Saturday’s clash could be another tight one to go the way of the hosts as Milan have enough about them to overcome both Giroud’s suspension and La Viola.
Lazio to win at Salernitana @ 77/100
After four points from their first five games, Lazio can regard the top-half position they occupy as definite progress.
But there is significant room for improvement from Maurizio Sarri’s men, who have followed successive wins over Atalanta, Sassuolo and Fiorentina with a defeat at Bologna and draw against rivals Roma last time out.
The Biancocelesti’s major issue is they are not prolific in front of goal – talisman Ciro Immobile has netted just three in the league this season, all at home, with Luis Alberto also on target three times.
Even so, it’s hard to see anything other than an away success here.
Opponents Salernitana are without a win this season, bottom of the table and five points from safety already.
Few fans will be taking the 2-2 draw at Sassuolo last time out as a positive either, even if a point on the road can normally be considered a success for a struggling team – they were pegged back after leading 2-0 after 17 minutes.
Senegalese forward Boulaye Dia remains the hosts’ shining light but they face an uphill battle in this one.
Atalanta vs Napoli – both teams to score @ 62/100
Walter Mazzarri’s first game in his second spell in charge of the defending champions is a tough one.
Fifth-placed Atalanta have the best home defensive record in the league and are managing the twin challenges of domestic and European football very well at present.
Also consider that they have Gianluca Scamacca, who has five goals to his name in Serie A already this season and is looking like the finisher West Ham hoped they had got when they signed him in the summer of 2022, and this adds up to a testing opener for Mazzarri.
However, the former Watford boss is not short of talent, even if injury has denied them the goals of Victor Osimhen since early October.
They are still averaging two goals a game in the league, though, and, with the mesmeric Khvicha Kvaratskhelia scoring three times on international duty with Georgia, can be expected to find the target again in this one.
