Turin rivals square off while Roma attempts to remain perfect

Torino hosts Juventus on Sunday in the Turin derby, while Roma attempts to continue its best start ever when the club entertains Bologna in Serie A this weekend.

Roma's 2-0 win over Sampdoria on Wednesday was the club's fifth successive victory to start the Serie A campaign, and Rudi Garcia's men will put their perfect mark on the line on Sunday at the Stadio Olimpico against Bologna.

The capital club sits two points clear at the top of the league, while Bologna has yet to record a win but has drawn three of its five matches.

Juventus has started its title defense in good form, winning four of its first five games with one draw, a 1-1 deadlock against Inter Milan.

Antonio Conte's team picked up three more points on Wednesday with a 2-1 comeback victory against Chievo.

Cyril Thereau's first-half goal put Chievo in front, but Fabio Quagliarella equalized shortly after the break and Alessandro Bernardini's own goal provided the difference.

Torino has also started relatively well this season with eight points from five games and the club has the league's leading scorer in Alessio Cerci, who netted two goals in Torino's 2-2 draw with Hellas Verona on Wednesday.

Saturday's two matches feature Napoli traveling to Genoa, while struggling AC Milan hosts Sampdoria.

Napoli dropped its first points of the season against last-place Sassuolo in midweek, and the club sits two points back of Roma, while Milan needed two late goals to salvage a 3-3 draw at Bologna last time out, giving the team just five points from five games.

Inter Milan struggled to a ninth-place finish last season, but the Nerazzurri has claimed four wins from five games and will look to add another three points to its total on Sunday at Cagliari.

Atalanta has lost four of its five matches and the club hosts Udinese, Chievo visits Catania, Hellas Verona plays host to Livorno, Lazio invades Sassuolo and the weekend concludes on Monday with Fiorentina taking on Parma.
