Juventus, Napoli and Roma are all in action again this weekend and all look like maintaining their unbeaten starts to the season.</p><p>Juventus are away at Inter, who got their first win of the campaign last time out against relegation tipped Pescara, and they are a great price. Inter have not beaten Juventus in the league since 2012, and in each of the last three seasons Juve have beaten them in one game and drawn the other. That points to a Juventus win being a long way from a foregone conclusion, but they have a bit of a formidable aura about them at present. They have won 29 of their last 31 league games and have been sensational so far this season, with new boy Gonzalo Higuain in excellent form and the familiar backline of Gianluigi Buffon, Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci and Andrea Barzagli all as solid and reliable as ever. They have already beaten three good teams in Lazio, Fiorentina and Sassuolo and Inter are on a similar level to that trio. They have not started the season well, losing to Chievo and drawing with Palermo before scraping past Pescara, and you would fancy Juventus to win this one. That makes the evens Betfred is offering on an away win look a great price.</p><p>Roma have a tough away trip to Fiorentina but this as very much a game they can win. They have taken seven points from a possible nine, continuing the great form they achieved towards the end of last season. The only blip was a 2-2 draw against Cagliari, but they might have been tired from travelling to Portugal and thrashing Porto in a Champions League qualifier. Diego Perotti, Edin Dzeko and Mohamed Salah have been in excellent form going forwards and they are playing some really exciting football at the moment. They will fancy their chances of finishing ahead of Napoli in second this season, but to do so they will have to win games like this and they can pull it off. They beat Fiorentina home and away last season (4-1 and 2-1) and have won seven of their last eight games against them. That makes the 17/10 Marathon Bet is offering on Roma winning look a great price.</p><p>Napoli host Bologna and they go into the match in good form, having shrugged off the loss of Higuain to deliver two wins and a draw so far this season. The signings of Arkadiusz Milik and Dries Mertens have helped them get over Higuain’s departure and both are in excellent form, having inspired Napoli to convincing wins over Milan and Palermo. Bologna have done well so far this season too though, taking six points from a possible nine, so they will be dangerous opposition, but their 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Torino does not fill one with confidence about their chances of taking on an in-form Napoli, and the 3/10 on Napoli looks like it will pay off. If you want more value go for a Napoli win and over 2.5 goals (5/6 with <a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4834&amp;book=Paddypower">Paddy Power</a> and <a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4818&amp;book=Coral">Coral</a>) as all of Napoli’s games so far have seen over 2.5 goals.</p>
