Italian Serie A: Gameweek 4 Preview


Inter Milan remain the only Serie A team with a 100% win-record this season but the big question is, can they keep it up? As we know, Juventus have dominated the top flight for the last decade with eight Scudetto’s in a row. Consistency is key and only time will tell as to whether Antonio Conte’s men can maintain that certain level of form. For now, let’s find out what’s good in round four.

Friday 20 September

Cagliari 27/20 
Draw 47/20 
Genoa 39/20 
(20:45)

Following back-to-back defeats, Cagliari found a winning formula as they defeated Parma 3-1 last weekend. Genoa, on the other hand, tasted their first loss, going down 2-1 to Atalanta at Stadio Luigi Ferraris. Both fixtures proved to be dull affairs last season. With that being said, the Totals – Under 2.5 Goals – market looks a decent bet at 9/10.

Saturday 21 September

Udinese 9/10 
Draw 51/20 
Brescia 29/10 
(15:00)

Udinese have been poor in recent weeks with two defeats on the bounce. However, newly-promoted Brescia have been just as dismal which could make for an interesting contest on Saturday afternoon. There doesn’t seem to be too much between these sides and a tight matchup expected. The draw is on the cards.

Juventus 2/13 
Draw 6/1 
Hellas Verona 17/1 
(18:00)

Juventus would’ve been disappointed to be held to a 1-1 draw at Fiorentina last time out, leaving them two points off the top. Hellas Verona have been fairly decent but in all honestly, there can only be one result here. The Old Lady will be desperate to return to winning ways here and I can assure you that they will do just that. Juve are tipped to Win to Nil at 11/20.

AC Milan 51/20 
Draw 23/10 
Inter Milan 11/10 
(20:45)

The match of the weekend will see city-rivals AC Milan and Inter Milan square off at the San Siro Stadium. The Rossoneri have claimed back-to-back 1-0 victories over Brescia and Hellas Verona respectively – not that impressive to say the least. The Nerazzurri have been brilliant with three wins on the spin, scoring seven goals and conceding just once. Inter Milan are tipped to come out on top in what promises to be an enticing affair.

Sunday 22 September

Sassuolo 1/1 
Draw 5/2 
SPAL 26/10 
(12:30)

Sassuolo have lost two of their three matches but their home game against Sampdoria before the international break, they won 4-1. SPAL ended a run of two defeats on the bounce with a 2-1 home victory over Lazio. Four of the last six meetings between these sides have seen both teams find the back of the net. Get on the Both Teams to Score – Yes – market at 13/20.

Bologna 18/10 
Draw 51/20 
Roma 14/10 
(15:00)

Bologna are placed second on the standings, unbeaten with two wins from three matches and will be looking to keep that up. However, Roma come to town following an impressive 4-2 home win over Sassuolo and will feel confident of building on that. I might not have the evidence to support my case but I highly doubt Bologna can maintain this run of form. It won’t be cut and dry but Roma are tipped to come away with the win.

Sampdoria 31/20 
Draw 47/20 
Torino 17/10 
(15:00)

Sampdoria are the only team in the league that have lost all three matches, scoring just once and conceding nine goals in the process. Following back-to-back wins, Torino were defeated 2-1 at home against newly-promoted Lecce on Monday night. The hosts are likely to play a much more defensive and tactical game. A lack of goals might be a result of that, so take the Totals – Under 2.5 Goals – market at 17/20.

Lecce 13/2 
Draw 38/10 
Napoli 4/10 
(15:00)

Newly-promoted Lecce earned their first win of the season with a hard-fought 2-1 victory away to Torino on Monday night. After going down 4-3 at Juventus, Napoli bounced back to winning ways with a 2-0 home win over Sampdoria. There isn’t too much value on the away with but I am expecting goals on Sunday evening. The Totals – Over 2.5 Goals – market is tipped at 6/10.

Atalanta 9/10 
Draw 11/4 
Fiorentina 28/10 
(18:00)

Atalanta have been excellent with two wins from three games, including a 2-1 victory away to Genoa last time out. Fiorentina remain winless after three matches but showed great fighting spirit against Juventus last weekend as they held the defending champs to a 1-1 draw. La Dea have won the last two meetings at home against Fiorentina and are good value to make it three in a row. The home win is tipped.

Lazio 7/20 
Draw 17/4 
Parma 15/2 
(20:45)

Lazio and Parma both suffered defeats last time out with the latter going down 3-1 at home against Cagliari, while Lazio were defeated 2-1 at SPAL. Both sides have managed just one win from three matches this season and will be desperate to change that. Goals are on the menu with Lazio and Parma expected to attack the game. The Totals – Over 2.5 Goals – market is tipped at 6/10.

TREBLE @ 11/2
Inter Milan Win 11/10
Atalanta Win 9/10
Lazio vs Parma Over 2.5 Goals 6/10
