Juventus vs Inter

It has been an unsuccessful campaign for the hosts as their decade-long dominance came to an end. Moreover, Juventus is still unsure about booking the ticket for the Champions League next season. Bianconeri are one point behind Napoli and three away from Milan and Atalanta, and those teams are in better momentum than Andrea Pirlo’s side. Juventus missed the opportunity to kick out Milan from the race, but they lost 3:0 at the home ground. Now, another team from the fashion capital stands on their way, and this time it’s the newly crowned champion. Cristiano Ronaldo and the lads managed to get back on the winning track with a 3:1 victory away to Sassuolo in the latest round, but Juventus needs two excellent displays in the remaining matches.

Inter has been the most dominant Serie A team in 2021, and they are 13 points ahead of Atalanta and Milan. Antonio Conte deservedly brought the Scudetto back to Milano’s Black and Blue side, despite having an unsuccessful continental campaign. Although the visitors had trouble in the backline, especially in the first half of the season, Romelu Lukaku and the lads were clinical in front of the oppositions’ net. Inter is in a remarkable streak of four wins in a row, and they don’t want to stop there. The away side lost only twice in 36 games played so far, and just once on the road. Eventually, they became the tightest team in the competition, conceding a total of 31 goals. Inter wants to beat their fierce rivals and prove they are currently the best team in Italy.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

This game is much more important for the home side, and they need to go for a victory. However, we don’t think Inter will get complacent, as they want to keep Juventus away from the top four. We don’t see Juve winning this one, and Inter should get back home with at least a point.

Goals Market Prediction

The visitors can score against any side, as they have en incredible attacking potential. On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo and the lads are expected to produce at least one goal. Therefore, we believe neither side will keep its net intact in this encounter.

Inter AH +0.25 @ 2.05

BTTS Yes @ 1.60

Correct score 1:2 @ 12.00

Roma vs Lazio

The hosts started with preparations for the next campaign since the current one has not been very successful. It’s still questionable if they will taste the continental football next season, as Roma sits in 7th place, being two points ahead of Sassuolo. Giallorossi appointed a new manager for the next attempt to finish in the top four, as Jose Mourinho will take over the bench from his compatriot Paulo Fonseca. The home side heads to Derby della Capitale after a 3:1 defeat against Inter in the latest match. Edin Dzeko and the lads managed to win only once in the previous five rounds, losing three times in that period. Although Roma has been pretty good in the front, their defense allowed too many goals. However, they have been quite confident at Stadio Olimpico, as they lost only twice at the home ground this season. Roma needs to put a disciplined performance in this match if they want to keep the 7th spot at the end of the campaign.

Lazio is one spot ahead of their fierce rivals, but they are nine points ahead, having one game in hand. The away side is six points behind Napoli, and since they have the chance to reduce that distance, they still hope for a top-four finish. However, the Europa League qualification seems more realistic for Biancocelesti. Simone Inzaghi’s side is in solid form, as they booked three wins in the previous four rounds. Like their opponents, Ciro Immobile and the lads were clinical in front of the oppositions’ net, but their defense could have been a bit tighter. Although Lazio is a nominal visitor in this match, they have been excellent at Stadio Olimpico, managing to tie 12 victories at this stadium. They need to continue that streak to keep their chances of the top-four finish.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

Lazio has been in a much better form than their rivals, and although derbies are hard to predict, they are slight favorites in this clash. We believe Biancocelesti are closer to the victory, and they should pick up all three points from this encounter.

Goals Market Prediction

Both sides have been involved in high-scoring matches lately. Only one Roma’s game out of the last six stayed under a 2.5 margin, while Lazio played four games on the previous six occasions in which we saw at least three goals. Therefore, we think this encounter will go over a 2.5 margin.

Lazio to win @ 2.25

Over 2.5 FT @ 1.50

Correct score 2:3 @ 19.00

Suddenly the two clubs found their balance at the right point of the season and although Milan is a big favorite, it will not be an easy task today at home. They have found attacking constants and I expect them to score a goal.
AC MILAN vs CAGLIARI @@ Both team to score, odd 1.80

Verona

They are sitting in the tenth in the table of the League. They are safe from relegation so they are relaxed, which have been winless for sven matches.

 

Bologna

They are not in form recently, getting 3W-3D-4L. They are weak in away games, with no more than 20% winning percentage.

 

Verdict:

Although Bologna take the upper hand over Verona in past head-to-head clashes with a record of 5W-3D-2L, they play poorly as traveller. So the victory is tending to the host.

 

1x2 Pick: 1

Lazio vs Torino

The home side heads to this game after a 2:0 defeat in Derby della Capitale. Those are always very painful, and Biancocelesti want to get back on the winning track. They sit in 6th place and have already booked the Europa League ticket. Simone Inzaghi’s side got a bit complacent lately, as they lost two times on the previous three occasions. Although Ciro Immobile and the lads have been pretty productive in the front, Lazio has struggled in the back. However, their home form has been stunning, as Lazio booked 12 straight victories at Stadio Olimpico. It is going to be their last match in their backyard this season, and the hosts want to continue their streak.

On the other hand, Torino is just above the red line, but one point should keep them in Serie A. However, they have been pretty bad lately, managing to remain undefeated just once in the last three games. They tied two defeats, and the one against Milan has been pretty painful. Il Toro conceded 11 goals in the previous two matches only, and Davide Nicola’s side should tighten its defense. They allowed too many goals this season, despite Andrea Belotti and the lads being reasonably efficient. Torino’s performances on the road have been pretty decent, and they managed to get back home with four wins and six draws from 18 outings. If they fail to remain undefeated in this one, Torino will fight for staying up at their pitch, as they host Benevento in the final round.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

Although Lazio hasn’t been too consistent lately, they are much better momentum than their opponents. The hosts are favorites in this clash, and we believe they will meet the expectations and deliver a win.

Goals Market Prediction

Both sides have been very efficient this season, but their defenses were pretty leaky. Their last four encounters brought us at least three goals per game, and we believe this one should also go over a 2.5 margin.

Lazio to win @ 2.00

Over 2.5 FT @ 1.65

Correct score 3:1 @ 15.00

Atalanta vs Juventus (Coppa Italia Finals)

It’s not surprising anymore that Atalanta is one of the best Italian teams. Gian Piero Gasperini established an excellent philosophy, and his team always plays attacking football. They sit in 2nd place in Serie A, and La Dea already secured its place in the Champions League for the next season. Although Atalanta is three points ahead of the fifth-placed Juventus, in case they level up at the end, they will have a better head-to-head record. Duvan Zapata and the lads managed to secure a vital 4:3 win in Genoa last weekend that guarantees them a top-four finish. However, Atalanta got complacent after a 4:1 lead, and they should avoid that in the upcoming match. La Dea’s strikers have been lethal for the oppositions’ goalkeepers, as they scored 90 goals so far. After securing a top-four finish, Atalanta can entirely focus on this game, despite having a challenging clash against Milan in the closing Serie A round.

Juventus failed to defend the Serie A title, and the Champions League qualification still looks unsure. Milan and Napoli are one point ahead of them, and their victories mean that we would watch Juve in the Europa League. However, Cristiano Ronaldo and the lads are full of confidence after beating the newly-crowned champions Inter last weekend. Andrea Pirlo’s side tied two wins, but Bianconeri struggle in the back lately. Juventus failed to keep its net intact on the previous 14 occasions in all competitions, and it will be challenging to accomplish that against the best attack in the league. The Super Cup winners need a disciplined performance to lift another cup trophy this season.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

It is going to be a tight clash, as both sides have equal chances of winning Coppa Italia. Juventus have much more experience in these matches, while Atalanta is in a better momentum. Bianconeri will be pressured with the Serie A closing round, and that might be a chance for La Dea to win this battle.

Goals Market Prediction

Atalanta has been excellent in the front this season, but their defense hasn’t been that tight. Juventus can score against any team, but they haven’t kept a clean sheet since early March. We expect to see an efficient clash in which both teams should be able to score.

Atalanta to win @ 2.45

BTTS Yes @ 1.60

Correct score 2:1 @ 9.50
