26 round of italian Serie A. 4 matches scheduled at 15:30gmt+1, while Napoli - Inter at 20:45.
CHIEVO - ROMA
Leadership seems to be gone forever, but Roma still has to defend its second place because Napoli is just 4 points far.
Roma has collected too many draws, 7 in the last 8 matches.
Chievo usually tends to close the spaces and stay on the defensive with good results mainly with big teams but at the same time has the worst home attack in the league.
In our opinion Roma will have the best.
CHIEVO: Bizzarri, Mattiello, Cesar, Dainelli,
Zukanovic, Schelotto, Izco, Radovanovic, Hetemaj, Meggiorini, Pellissier.
ROMA: De Sanctis, Florenzi, Manolas, Astori, Cole, Keita, Pjanic, Nainggolan, Gervinho, Ljajic, Iturbe.

EMPOLI - GENOA
It is a match between two teams which are playing a really great season. Both squads have a brilliant game style, a good organization in their own defenses and this should be a match with no pressure since they are both far away from relegation zone.
Empoli is very solid when playing home: in the last 7 matches played at Castellani Stadium, 6 times Empoli saw his goal unbeaten but Genoa scores a lot when playing away.
Laurini, Rugani, Tonelli, Mario Rui, Vecino, Valdifiori, Croce, Saponara, Tavano, Maccarone.
GENOA: Perin, Roncaglia, Burdisso, De Maio, Rincon, Bertolacci, Kucka, Edenilson, Iago, Perotti, Niang.
PARMA - ATALANTA
Parma is in a crytical situation. Last team on standings, huge financial crysis for the club, players haven't received their salary since July an a lot of unlucky events are destroying this historical italian team.
Main theme of italian newspapers during the week has been Parma's destiny which seems to be really dark.
Penalization points are expected which summed to player's morale and all the injuries Parma has had since the beginning of the season, well, we only see the away win today.
True, Atalanta is rarely brilliant when playing away but in this situation, against a drifting opponent, they can get 3 points, and generally speaking Atalanta is stronger than Parma. Lets see what effects the change of coach will have on Bergamo's team(Reja took the place of Colantuono at the beginning of the week).
PARMA: Mirante, Cassani, Costa, Lucarelli, Gobbi,
Mauri, Mariga, Nocerino, Varela, Belfodil, Rodriguez.
ATALANTA: Sportiello, Benalouane, Masiello, Dramé, Carmona, Cigarini, Baselli, Emanuelson, D’Alessandro, Denis, Pinilla.

POSSIBLE SCORE: 0-1
NAPOLI - INTER
Usually Napoli - Inter is a match with lots of goals. The first round in Milan ended 2-2 and Inter was trained by that incompetent of Mazzarri, now with Mancini the trend should not change.
Indeed ex Manchester City's coach has adopted a much more offensive game style and results came fast. Inter is constantly scoring a lot but at the same time it always concedes goals.
Both teams have huge potential in their offensive players while both defenses often make individual mistakes.
NAPOLI: Andujar, Maggio, Koulibaly, Albiol, Ghoulam,
David Lopez, Inler, Callejon, Hamsik, De Guzman, Higuain.
INTER: Handanovic, Santon, Ranocchia, Juan Jesus, D’Ambrosio, Guarin, Medel, Brozovic, Shaqiri, Icardi, Palacio.
POSSIBLE SCORE: 2-2
