Saturday:


Juventus - Roma

Last season: Juventus 1-0 Roma

Form guide: Juventus (D L L W W) Roma (L W L L L)

Juventus (probable): Manninger; Grygera, Legrottaglie, Chiellini, Molinaro; Marchionni, Sissoko, Tiago, Nedved; Del Piero, Amauri

Roma (probable): Doni; Panucci, Mexes, Juan, Tonetto; Pizarro, De Rossi; Taddei, Perrotta, Vucinic; Totti

Juventus have many players out with injuries and I believe they could have a tough match. But Roma have very very poor form. Reports suggest Julio Baptista could be in the starting lineup instead of Totti for this match.

Juventus win.

Inter (probable): Julio Cesar; Maicon, Cordoba, Burdisso, Chivu; Vieira, Stankovic, Zanetti; Balotelli, Ibrahimovic, Mancini

Inter have the best form of these two teams and I believe they will win this match.
