Serie A Weekly Matchday 20 Predictions



Juventus vs Fiorentina

Huge match day for Juventus as manager Ranieri faces Fiorentina and his opposite number Prandelli with a very depleted squad. Several Bianconeri players have been suffering from the flu including Gigi Buffon, and Olof Melberg who are added to the usual injury candidates of David Trezeguet,Jonathan Zebina, Dario Knezevic, Hasan Salihamidzic, Mauro Camoranesi and Vincenzo Iaquinta. Suspended are Momo Sissoko and Cristian Molinaro, Ranieri is very short of options.

Juventus Probable Starting XI


Napoli vs Roma

This central Italian head-to-head should been very entertaining to watch. Napoli, with 8-1-0 this far at home are a fortress and should prove difficult for Roma to breakdown however the Partenopei will be short their second best player, Marek Hamsik, who is suspended for two games.

Roma captain, Totti, will be ready to make his return in this match. Vucinic and keeper Doni already returned midweek against Inter in the Cup (1-2 loss). Cicinho is suspended.
