Juventus will continue their seemingly inevitable march to an eighth consecutive Serie A title this weekend when they travel to Bologna.

The match will, which holds on Sunday at 3pm, will be live on SuperSport 8 and SuperSport Select 5. Massimiliano Allegri’s men can simply not stop winning and the club’s top acquisition, Cristiano Ronaldo, continues to bang in the goals, as he did against Frosinone last weekend.

Bologna, with one win in their last 10 matches across all competitions, face a mile-high odd even at their own Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.

In another big game on Sunday, Napoli will hope they can reduce the 13-point gap between them and Juventus when they take on Parma. The match goes live at 6 pm on SuperSport 8 and SuperSport Select 5.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men played an underwhelming 0-0 draw at home against Torino last weekend, while Parma lost 1-2 loss to 10-man Cagliari team.

The weekend clashes will kick off today with AC Milan taking on Empoli. Kick-off time is at 8:30 pm and the match will air on SuperSport 10 and SuperSport Select 2 and 5.

Milan are seeking a UEFA Champions League spot and must be buoyed by last weekend’s victory over Atalanta.

With Roma just a point behind them, Gennaro Gattuso’s team know the margin for error is narrow. Empoli are 17th on the league table, but Milan will be wary after their opponent’s 3-0 thrashing of Sassuolo last weekend.

The other game to be broadcast on Saturday is the encounter between Frosinone and Roma (showing at 8:30 pm on SuperSport 10 and SuperSport Select 2 and 5).

Another cracker is the Fiorentina-Inter Milan duel (showing on Sunday at 8:30 pm on SuperSport 8 and SuperSport Select 5). Under Luciano Spalleti, Inter have found form and consistency after a shaky first half of the season.

They will hope their good fortune continues when they visit Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi. Fiorentina will also be inspired by their 4-1 defeat of SPAL last weekend.

Also on Sunday, Sampdoria will confront Cagliari (showing at 12:30 pm on SuperSport 8 and SuperSport Select 5), while Chievo will take on Genoa (showing at 3 pm on SuperSport 12).
