Serie A Predictions & Tips: Best Bets For Italian Football

Leigh Copson:

The 2019/20 Serie A season is underway once again, and we have picked out our favourite bets from the latest round of games in the top tier of Italian football.

Serie A Predictions & Tips: Juventus v Atalanta (Saturday 20:45 BST)

Juventus saw a 2-0 lead slip through their fingers in an exciting 4-2 loss at AC Milan on Tuesday, ending a streak of four wins in a row and failing to capitalize on Lazio’s slip-up in an attempt to seal the deal in Serie A. They found themselves all over the place at one point and conceded four goals in 18 minutes, where the lack of consistency and actual depth after the break was emphasized once again. Bianconeri now have another tough challenge on their hands but certainly hope to bounce, as Sarri continues to highlight their stability at Allianz Stadium. Atalanta have been furious lately, though, and come into the match with a streak of 12 wins behind them. They beat Sampdoria (2-0) with late goals from Toloi and Muriel midway through the week, which gives them just as much to build on. La Dea also snatched a point on their last trip to this ground and suffered just one loss in four head-to-head clashes against the Italian dominants. With that in mind, we’re now sticking our necks out for them to snatch a point again!

Serie A Predictions & Tips: Napoli v Milan (Sunday 20:45 BST)

Napoli beat Roma (2-1) and Genoa (1-2) over the past seven days, making the top 6 cut and sitting two points clear of the 7th placed rivals as they host AC Milan for their Matchday 32 clash. They have been conceding goals on the regular but still managed to bounce from a 2-0 loss seen at Atalanta beforehand. Partenopei have been quite convincing at San Paolo Stadium and will now want to show off what they’re made of in an attempt to extend the gap behind them. However, Milan come into the match on a high too, after beating Juventus (4-2) in a six-goal thriller and bagging their fourth win in five outings. Rossoneri were only held off by SPAL (2-2) along the way but impressed in their moves forward while also beating Roma (2-0) and Lazio (0-3). They will now want more of the same and this serves just as much of evidence we should be in for a thrilling contest.

Serie A Predictions & Tips: Inter Milan v Torino (Monday 20:45 BST)

Inter Milan dropped to the 4th with a ten-point gap to pace-setters Juventus after seeing two disappointing displays over the past seven days, where Bologna (1-2) snatched all three points at Giuseppe Meazza and Verona denied them in a 2-2 draw on the road. They now host Torino desperate to make the goals scored count and finally return to the winning ways. Nerazzurri will have to pick it up with seven games left to play and we do expect them motivated to finally impress. Torino will have high hopes of their own after beating Brescia (3-1) and ending a three-game losing streak on Wednesday. They saw Cagliari (4-2), Lazio (1-2), and Juventus (4-1) run riot beforehand and this could be more worrying, as Toro’s lack of defensive consistency proves costly time and time again. We do expect an exciting challenge but the visitors could still find themselves in the danger zone after it, as we stick with Inter to turn it their way.
