There is some great action across Europe in the world of soccer this weekend, especially in Italy, where six of Serie A’s top seven teams are in competition with one another, starting with a trip to the capital for the champions.

The three matches I’ll break down below: Lazio-Juventus (Saturday, noon ET), Napoli-Roma (Saturday, 2:45 p.m. ET), AC Milan-Inter (Sunday, 2:45 p.m. ET).

Let’s dive in.


Lazio (+250) vs. Juventus (+120), Draw (+230)

Kickoff: Saturday, 12 PM ET

What might have been for Lazio, who would have hoped for this game to be a prequel to the Coppa Italia final.
