Last Updated on August 23, 2022 3:15 pm by Erwin Noguera

A new round of the Serie A is on the horizon, and this weekend we will have the actions of the third round of one of the oldest and most popular leagues in the world, which started at full speed with the favorite teams fighting to stay at the top of the standings from the very beginning of the season.

Napoli is the most powerful team we have seen so far, with 9 goals scored in two games to give them their two wins and, of course, the top spot in the table. Inter are not far behind, with two wins in their first two games.

Milan and Atalanta drew their match in the previous matchday and are 2 points off the top, along with Fiorentina, Lazio, and Torino. It should be noted that after a first matchday where there was no draw in any of the matches played, in this second matchday we saw 10 teams with 1 point.

Those who are having the worst time at the beginning of the season are Monza and Lecce, both recently promoted teams from the second division of Italian soccer that are not having a good time and have lost their first matches.

Next, we will have a preview of the best matches we can enjoy on this matchday 3 of Serie A or Calcio.

One of the matches that will kick off this matchday 3 of the Italian Serie A will be Inter vs. Lazio this Friday, August 26, 2022, at the Stadio Olimpico, home of Lazio.

This match will be one of the highlights of this Calcio round, thanks to the strong rivalry between these two.

Inter has started this season as they had dreamed it, with two very good victories and, most importantly, only conceding 1 goal in the 2 matches played. This speaks very well of their coach’s tactical approach to this season.

Inter does not want a repeat of last season, where they were very close to winning the Scudetto, but by losing points in relatively easy games throughout the season, they did not depend on themselves to do so.

Now, Inter started with 2 wins, the first against Lecce with a score of 2-1 and, the second against Spezia, with a crushing 3-0.

On the other hand, we have Lazio, another of the teams that are called to fight to be at the top of the standings, and, although they would not be at the level of the big teams to win the Scudetto, they want to fight to remain among the places that grant a place in the European international competitions.

Lazio started this season with a good home win against Bologna with a score of 2-1. However, in their second away match against Torino, they were held to a 0-0 draw. As a result, Lazio is in sixth place in the table with 4 points.

Inter vs. Lazio Betting Pick: Inter

In this new round of the Italian Serie A, we will have the match between the current champions, Milan and Bologna, which will be played this Saturday, August 27, 2022, at the San Siro Stadium, home of Milan.

Milan wants to return to the spectacular season they had in 2021-22 and, to do so, they must put together all the necessary pieces to score as many points as possible at the beginning of the season, since teams like Inter, Juventus, Napoli, Roma, and Atalanta, were armed with a very good squad in the search for the Scudetto.

Milan started the season with a stupendous victory in the first match against Udinese with a score of 4-2. Then, on the second matchday, they had the difficult task of visiting Atalanta, where they could not take a victory, but they managed to get 1 point after the final score of 1-1.

On the other hand, Bologna has been a mid-table team for the last 8 years and, they intend to improve that in this new season. But they have been unlucky at the start of the season, having to face two big teams in the first three rounds, Lazio and Milan.

In its first game, Bologna visited Lazio and, despite playing a good game, it lost 1-2. In its second match, its home debut against Hellas Verona, it again showed a good level of play, but the expulsion of Orsolini in the 78th minute conditioned the victory, and it ended up drawing 1-1.

Bologna vs. Milan Betting Pick: Milan

When: Sunday, August 28 at 10:30 am ET

This matchday 3 of Serie A will have very interesting and exciting matches from start to finish. This is mainly because of the quality of the players that the different teams have signed for this new season.

One of those matches will be the one between Napoli and Fiorentina next Sunday, August 28, 2022, at the Artemio Franchi Stadium, home of Fiorentina. Two teams that are called to fight for the top of the table will meet just in matchday 3, something that will undoubtedly make this weekend much more attractive.

Napoli has started the season with all their arsenal available and has achieved two spectacular victories to put pressure on teams like Milan, Inter, and Juventus, who are dreaming of lifting the championship trophy at the end of the season.

In the first match, Napoli won over Hellas Verona 5-2, and in the second match they applied the same dose, but this time at home, against Monza, a team that is playing in Serie A for the first time in its history, and managed to win with a 4-0 score.

On the other hand, Fiorentina has also had a good start to the season thanks to its new signing, former Real Madrid player Luka Jovic, who, thanks to some very good performances in the first game, managed to lead his team to a 3-2 victory over Cremonese.

The confidence and spirit with which they started the season were dampened in the second match when they were unable to achieve a victory against Empoli and ended with a 0-0 draw.

Napoli vs. Fiorentina Betting Pick: Draw

We close this preview of matchday 3 of the Italian Serie A, with an authentic match between two of the most important teams in Italian soccer, Juventus and Roma, which will be played this Saturday, August 27, 2022, at the Juventus Stadium, in the city of Turin.

Juventus faces this new season with the firm conviction of returning to being the fearsome and powerful team that won trophies in previous seasons. To this end, they have secured the services of very good players such as Ángel Di María.

Things started very well for Juventus, with a good victory against Sassuolo with a score of 3-0. Making it very clear to their closest rivals, such as Inter, Milan, and Napoli, that this season they will fight for everything.

In the second match, Juventus encountered a very solid defense and could not win against Sampdoria, in a match that ended with a 0-0 draw.

On the other hand, Roma also had a very good start to the season, winning 1-0 away against Salernitana. The team coached by José Mourinho will try to have a better performance this season and surpass the sixth place obtained in the 2021-22 season.

In their last match, Roma had a difficult victory against Cremonese, with a score of 1-0. In this game Roma had total control, but, the defense and goalkeeper of the visiting team looked like a real wall. However, the most damaging thing was the injury of Zaniolo, that alongside Wijnaldum, adds a new crack to a Roma squad that looked like one of the best at the start of the season.

Juventus vs. Roma Betting Pick: Draw
