Serie A Weekend Predictions

The last Serie A round was very exciting and it saw a lot of changes on the table. Inter Milan returned to the 1st spot on the table after Juventus’ shock loss to Verona. Inter were 2 goals down against Milan in their own match but they managed to fight back in the 2nd half by scoring 4 goals and winning the match. However, the teams have to put those games behind them because the 24th matchweek is upon us. All the teams that are in the title race are playing on Sunday. Juventus have a home game against Brescia that they absolutely have to win while Sunday night brings us a fantastic fixture between Inter Milan and Lazio. However, we have to mention one match that’s played on Saturday night. Atalanta are hosting Roma in what promises to be a fantastic encounter. Below, you will find our weekly Serie A predictions.

After a couple of bad weeks, Atalanta seem to be back on track as they returned to the TOP 4. Additionally, they will feature in the Champions League midweek, as part of the last 16 phase for the first time in their history. For that reason, Atalanta will have to rotate their squad a bit and rest key players for the Champions League encounter. However, they also have to win against Roma because a loss would see them drop below the TOP 4 once again. Their opponents on Saturday have been in a bad run of results lately and they are desperate for points. They defeated Roma back in September in their first meeting this season. This time Atalanta have the home turf advantage which should be enough of an advantage for a positive result.

The team from the capital had a good season up until the last couple of weeks. Things kind of unraveled as soon as the 2nd part of the season started. Their limited squad coupled with some key injuries caused Roma to drop a lot of points. They have just 1 win in the last 5 rounds which is how they lost their TOP 4 spot. It’s important to note that they were scoring goals in all those matches and they lost most of them with narrow 1 goal difference results. This means that their biggest problem is the defense which allows way too many goals. To make things worse now they have to face Atalanta a team they have failed to beat in the last couple of seasons. However, back in 2017 Roma won this exact fixture 0:1 and their fans will be expecting something similar on Saturday night.

Prediction

Based on recent performances, Atalanta are favorites to win this fixture. They even have the home turf advantage. However, we can’t just rule off Roma as they are a top side. At the moment, they are really desperate for points and they will travel with the thought of getting all 3 points on Saturday. We expect a high scoring affair which is why we are backing an Over 3.75 Goals outcome.

The bad performances have finally caught up to the holding champions. They won a lot of games this year thanks to individual quality and experience. However, in recent weeks, Juventus have been performing really poorly. Juventus lost 2 games in the last 3 matchweeks which allowed Inter to claim the 1st spot on the table. They failed to improve in the Coppa Italia as well as Ronaldo saved them from embarrassment against Milan midweek. They needed a stoppage time penalty in order to get a draw against a poor Milan side. Coach Sarri’s job looks to be in jeopardy if the team doesn’t improve soon. Facing a small team like Brescia is perfect for them to get back to winning ways. Fans won’t accept anything but a strong win against Brescia this Sunday.

Just like most experts predicted, Brescia are fighting the relegation battle as they have been for most of the season. At the moment they are 6 points behind the 17th placed team which is unlikely to change. Losing to Juventus on Sunday will probably mean they eventually get relegated; however, there are still a lot of rounds to be played. Brescia played several good matches this year but that’s not enough to beat relegation. In the reverse fixture against Juventus, they held their own and lost narrowly 1:2 even though Juventus have much more quality than them. This time, they won’t be playing at home but they already proved that they can score against Juventus. Their chances of getting a positive outcome are a million to one but Brescia will definitely try to surprise the holding champions.

Prediction

Juventus are absolute favorites to win this fixture even though they are not at their best at the moment. They have way too much quality and home turf advantage which should be enough to get all 3 points on Sunday. However, the odds for a simple Juventus victory are too low and we have to go a different way. For that reason, we are backing a – 1.75 Asian Handicap.

Lazio vs Inter Milan >> click here for live odds

We finally got to the most important Serie A fixture in this matchweek. Lazio, who have been surprising everyone this season are on their way to challenge both Juventus and Inter for the Serie A title. They are just 1 point below Inter and victory on Sunday could see them grab the 1st position on the table. They played 2 very tough matches in the last 2 rounds. First, they failed to beat Verona in a match that could have easily gone the other way. Then Lazio faced Parma away from home which was a really taxing fixture. Eventually, they won by a single goal which was enough to give them all 3 points.

However, now they have to face Inter who are table leaders at the moment. In the reverse fixture back in September, Inter claimed all 3 points with a very narrow 1:0 win. This time Lazio have the home turf advantage and they could easily walk away with a win.

Conte’s side is looking adamant to take the Serie A title away from Juventus. After a couple of bad results, they started playing well again and returned to winning ways. In the last round, Inter were down 2 goals at half time against city rivals Milan. However, in the 2nd half they showed real character as the team scored 4 goals and won the game. With that result they added pressure to Juventus as they remained 1st on the table. Inter now have another extremely tough task as they travel to the Capital to meet Lazio.

Inter are the only team from the top this season to have managed to beat Lazio in Serie A. As a matter of fact, Lazio defeated Juventus twice already, both in the league and in the Super Cup. Inter won the 1st fixture 1:0 back in September but now Lazio are playing at home and winning there will be much harder.

Prediction

This is a fixture where picking the winner is absolutely impossible. Both teams have quality and both are performing very well at the moment. Additionally, both sides are fighting for the title. Playing it safe and getting a draw will just go in favor of Juventus so that shouldn’t be their gameplay. We might even say Lazio have a small advantage because they are very strong at home. Nevertheless, we will be backing an Over 2.75 Goals outcome.
