Round 3 in Italy kicks off with Palermo seeking their first point against Cagliari. The Serie A week finishes with Inter trying to find some consistency at Torino.

I must confess something to y'all: there's not really that much that's exciting about these individual fixtures. And with just two weeks down, there's not even much that can be said authoritatively about the possibilities for an upset. But that's why this week, SBN Italia will be bringing you match-by-match previews to help you prepare for Round 3.

If you're just looking for a good match, some things to consider: watching Palermo to see if they can find new and exciting ways to lose. Checking in on Milan to see how Giampaolo Pazzini is doing. Catching Catania against Fiorentina and the ways of Vincenzo Montella. Placing a bet that this will be the week Udinese manage to find their first point. Watching the grass grow at the Stadio San Paolo. And tuning into Torino - Inter because that's all you got.
