Italian Serie A: Gameweek 26 Preview

Paulo Dybala Juventus star  A return of seven predictions from nine fixtures was definitely what the doctor ordered and if you followed my tips last weekend, you should be all smiles!

Friday 1 March 

Cagliari 34/10 
Draw 5/2 
Inter Milan 8/10 

Cagliari have been dismal in recent weeks with four losses from their last five matches and that doesn’t look likely to improve here. Inter Milan have been fairly decent on their travels and will be looking to bag maximum points. The Nerazzurri have won the last four meetings between the sides, scoring 14 goals and conceding just once. The away win is tipped. 

Saturday 2 March

Empoli 1/1 
Draw 51/20 
Parma 51/20 

Empoli were slaughtered 3-0 at the hands of AC Milan last time out but return to their home base this weekend. Parma have been dreadful in recent weeks, suffering three consecutive losses, scoring just once and conceding seven times in the process. The last three meetings at the Stadio Carlo Castellani have produced 13 goals at an average of 4.3 per game. With both teams bleeding goals and both eager to get back to winning ways, the Over 2.5 Goals market looks a good bet at 15/20. 

AC Milan 5/10
Draw 33/10 
Sassuolo 11/2 

AC Milan have been in top form with three straight wins, finding the back of the net nine times and shipping just one goal. Sassuolo are without a win in their last four games and have travelled poorly with just three wins from 12 matches. The hosts have grown from strength-to-strength and that form doesn’t look likely to fade away just yet. Back AC Milan to bag all three points. 

Lazio 31/20 
Draw 51/20 
Roma 16/10

Following back-to-back victories, Lazio fell to a disappointing 2-1 defeat away to Genoa last time out. This week they take on city rivals Roma, who seem to be finding some form with three wins in a row. Although form really does go out the window in derby games such as these, I simply can’t overlook the fact that the Giallorossi have just been that much better. They won the reverse tie 3-1 and are tipped on the Double Chance and Both Teams to Score – DrawAway/Yes – market at 23/20.

Sunday 3 March

Torino 4/10 
Draw 7/2 
Chievo 15/2 

Sunday’s action kicks off at lunch time with Torino playing host to relegation-bound Chievo. The Maroons are unbeaten in their last five matches, including three consecutive home wins. The basement-dwellers are winless on the road, scoring eight goals and conceding three times that amount (24). Torino are unbeaten against Chievo in the last five meetings and look very much likely to build on that. As much as the home win looks a banker bet, the hosts are not a team that score goals upon goals. And with that being said, the Both Halves Under 1.5 Goals – Yes – market offers decent value at 5/4. 

Udinese 14/10 
Draw 2/1 
Bologna 22/10 

Udinese ended a winless run of four matches with a hard-fought 1-0 home win over bottom-of-the-log Chievo last weekend. Bologna have lost back-to-back matches but those defeats came at the hands of Roma (2-1) and Juventus (0-1). The Greyhounds showed grit and determination and if they apply that to this game, they will very well be in with a shout. Take Bologna on the Win/Draw Double Chance at 5/10.

Genoa 6/10 
Draw 11/4 
Frosinone 9/2 

Genoa are undefeated in their last five matches and welcome relegation-threatened Frosinone to the Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Sunday afternoon. The visitors have lost five of their last seven games, including two defeats on the bounce. It won’t be cut and dry but Genoa should capitalize on home advantage. At 6/10, the hosts are tipped to come out on top. 

SPAL 16/10 
Draw 43/20 
Sampdoria 18/10 

SPAL are winless in their last four games, including a 1-1 draw at Sassuolo last time out. Sampdoria returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Cagliari following a run of three consecutive losses, scoring once and conceding six times. It seems as though home advantage has been the difference in recent meetings but despite that, I’m going a different route. The Both Teams to Score – Yes – market is tipped at 17/20. 

Atalanta 19/20 
Draw 26/10 
Fiorentina 26/10 

Atalanta have been poor of late with back-to-back defeats, scoring once and conceding five times. Fiorentina are unbeaten in their last seven matches and will be looking to maintain that form on Sunday evening. I’m expecting a cagey affair and most likely a very defensive approach from both sides. The Totals – Under 2.5 Goals – is tipped at 11/10. 

Napoli 31/20 
Draw 22/10 
Juventus 37/20 

Last but not least, second-placed Napoli will play host to runaway-leaders Juventus on Sunday evening. Should the defending champions secure maximum points, it would leave the Azzurri 16 points adrift of the table-toppers. There should be a few goals scored here but I’m not expecting a goal fest. The Totals (Aggregated) – 2-3 goals – market is well worth a punt at 9/10. 

WON @ 5/1
Roma HT-FT Win 21/20
Juventus Win 5/10
Fiorentina vs Inter Milan Over 2.5 Goals 19/20 

Inter Milan Win 8/10
AC Milan Win 5/10
Roma Win/Draw & BTTS 23/20
