Roma will hope to celebrate against Sassuolo in Serie A

BT Sport, from 11.30am Sunday

Empoli v Napoli BT Sport 3, 11.30am
Last week's 4-0 hammering at Chievo made it five defeats in a row for Empoli and put coach Giovanni Martusciello under enormous pressure.

Hovering just above the drop zone, they haven't managed to beat any side in the current top 12 in Serie A so can't be fancied at home to a Napoli team who are coveting second spot.

Steve Davies's recommendation
Napoli & over 2.5 goals

Key stat
Empoli have scored just four goals in their last nine matches.

Sampdoria v Juventus BT Sport 3, 2pm 
Sampdoria are playing as well as at any stage of the season and can grab at least a point against Juventus, who are not entirely rock-solid on the road.

Samp's seven-match unbeaten run includes wins at home to Roma (3-2) and away to Milan (1-0) and they could trouble Juve, whose main task this week was to finish off Porto in the Champions League round of 16.

Key stat
Sampdoria are unbeaten in their last six home fixtures.

Roma v Sassuolo BT Sport 2, 7.45pm
Roma's Europa League exit was a major disappointment for them but they should respond with a victory over lowly Sassuolo.

There appears to be a weakness in the Roma defence which Sassuolo - the second-highest scorers in the bottom half - may exploit but Roma are averaging a shade under three goals per home league game and should take the points.

Dan Childs's recommendation
Roma to win & both teams to score

Key stat
Roma have not kept a clean sheet in their last four home matches.
