Home comforts can help Sassuolo upset Milan

Extra preparation time looks key for Parma

Sassuolo celebrate a goal against Genoa
1 of 1

Eleven Sports 1, from 11.30am Sunday

Bologna v Udinese 11.30am
Bologna earned a shock win over Roma last week but they could be brought back down to earth when they host Udinese.

That was the only game in which Filippo Inzaghi’s side have scored this season, while Rodrigo de Paul has already notched four times for the Little Zebras and could add to his tally.

Andrew Wilsher's recommendation
2pts 2-1 Betfair, Betfred

Key stat
There has not been a draw in the last seven meetings between these sides.

Bet on this game at

Chievo v Torino 2pm
Chievo are without a win in their first six games of the season but they could earn a point when Torino travel to Verona.

The Flying Donkeys have already shipped 15 goals but Walter Mazzarri’s side's struggle in front of goal and the home side could claim a point.

Andrew Wilsher's recommendation
1pt 12-5 Betfair

Key stat
Torino failed to register a shot on target in their last match against Atalanta.

Parma v Empoli 5pm
Promoted Empoli have gone five games without a win and notwithstanding the excellence of Thursday night’s 1-1 draw with Milan, that’s a worry.

Parma were well beaten at Napoli on Wednesday but this game was always more important and an extra 24 hours to prepare has to help.

Steve Davies's recommendation
1pt 13-10 general

Key stat
Empoli have won only two of their last 16 Serie A away games.

Bet on this game at

Sassuolo v Milan 7.30pm
Sassuolo have won all three of their home matches this season, scoring nine goals in the process, and look value to continue that run against Milan.

The hosts have lost only three league games since February so their lofty position shouldn’t be regarded as a fluke. 

Steve Davies's recommendation
1pt 11-5 bet365, Betfair

Key stat
Milan haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last 11 league games.
