Chievo vs Udinese – Home win @ 2/1 with Paddy Power (17:00 GMT kick-off)


There is no question who is in the better form here, that’s Udinese, but this could be one of those matches where it pays to back the opposite of what these teams have been achieving recently.

Udinese are on a terrific run having won their last five Serie A games by a 14-2 aggregate, including a superb 3-1 success at Inter Milan which made it four victories on the spin away from home.

In contrast, Chievo have taken only one point from the last 15 available, but their chances here have been boosted by the visitors being without injured defender Ali Adnan and former West Ham and Watford midfielder Valon Behrami who have been key to their latest successes.

Massimo Oddo has been doing an excellent job since he took over at Udinese, but Chievo are a better team at home than away and could represent a touch of value here.

Fiorentina vs Inter Milan – Away win @ 9/5 with betway (19:45 GMT)


Inter Milan’s title challenge has hit the skids with only two points collected from the last 12, but they are fancied to get back on track in Florence.

The problem has been that the goals have dried up for Luciano Spalletti’s side and their star striker Mauro Icardi has netted only once in his last five appearances, albeit one of them was a cameo off the bench in the Coppa Italia.

But Fiorentina, who have been hit and miss all season, are also struggling to score goals with only two in their last four games and they trail the visitors by 14 points in the table when they finished side by side in seventh and eighth positions last term.

The odds suggest there will be little between these sides here, with some bookmakers quoting them as joint favourites, and although we also think the margin will be slender, we will count on Inter to rediscover their flying form of the late summer and autumn and return to winning ways.
