Chievo vs Cagliari Preview and Prediction
Last-placed Chievo will host mid-table Cagliari to kick off the Serie A fixtures for this weekend. Chievo have had a dreadful season, and they have collected just 11 points thus far. Relegation is all but certain for them, as they are 14 points adrift of safety.
Cagliari are in 14th place, and they are a healthy 6 points clear of danger. They are likely to avoid relegation, and a win on Friday will make it all but certain. Chievo have won just one league game this season, and that number should stay the same after this weekend.
Both sides are not prolific in attack and have scored 46 goals combined this season in the Serie A. The total goals should be under 2.5 in the game. Cagliari are the favorites, and they should clinch a close victory.

Udinese vs Genoa Preview and Prediction
Udinese will host Genoa on Saturday as they look to boost their survival chances in the Serie A. Two consecutive heavy losses against Napoli and Juventus have left Udinese in 16th place, just one point clear of danger.
Genoa shocked champions Juventus in their last game, winning the game 2-0 to inflict the first defeat on their opponents. They are in 12th place, with no real danger of relegation. Their form has been erratic, as they have won 2 out of their last 5 games.
Udinese have won their last two home games, and they need the three points to ensure their Serie A status. But their attack has been woeful overall, and only two sides have scored fewer than their 24 goals. It will be a close game, with total goals under 2.5.

Juventus vs Empoli Preview and Prediction
Leader Juventus will look to put their first domestic defeat of the season behind them when they host Empoli on Saturday. Genoa inflicted Juve’s first Serie A defeat of the season when they beat the Old Lady 2-0 two weeks ago.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side is 15 points clear at the top, and they are huge favourites for yet another Scudetto. Empoli are at the other end of the table, just one point above the bottom three. Their defence has conceded 54 league goals this season, which is the highest.
Empoli have scored just once in their last 3 away matches, and Juventus have scored 10 in their last 3 home games. The home side should win comfortably, and Empoli will find it hard to score. The total goals in the game could be Over 2.5.
