Serie A games you won't want to miss on matchday three

Napoli vs Juventus: It's been a horrible start to the season for Juventus, who have earned just one point so far after drawing Udinese and suffering a shock loss to Empoli. The pressure will be on Massimiliano Allegri's men to get things right as as they travel to face Napoli in a highly-anticipated match, but it'll be much easier said than done given the Partenopei having a excellent start to the season.

Sampdoria vs Inter: Reigning champs Inter may have seen key players like Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi depart during the summer, plus head coach Antonio Conte, but it hasn't prevented the Nerazzurri from starting off the season on a high note. Along with Napoli, AC Milan, Roma, and Lazio, Inter are among the teams to have a perfect winning record at this early stage, and they'll certainly look to make it three wins in three as they take on a Sampdoria side who have yet to hit their stride.

Milan vs Lazio: Two teams with perfect records will collide as Milan welcome Lazio to the Stadio San Siro. At the end of 90 minutes, one - or both - of these teams won't have a 100 per cent winning record. Will it be a Milan side who have been given a major boost with the expected return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, or will Maurizio Sarri's Lazio head back to the Eternal City with at least a point in hand?

Sassuolo vs Roma: There's been a lot more buzz about Roma this season thanks to the Giallorossi pulling off the acquisition of decorated manager Jose Mourinho. Mourinho, in turn, has brought in some interesting reinforcements, namely young English striker Tammy Abraham, who impressed fans and pundits alike with his showings against Fiorentina and Salernitana. Sassuolo, however, have proven to be a problem side for Italy's biggest teams since they burst onto the scene in 2013, and will be looking to throw a wrench in Roma's plans when the Giallorossi arrive on Sunday.
