Salernitana vs Inter Milan

Kick Off: 12/17/2021 15:45

 

Salernitana

Salernitana lost 4-0 away to Fiorentina on the last game day. They are also in a three game losing streak and have lost six of their first seven games. The team currently only achieved 2W-2D-13L form the 17 league games this season, accumulating 8 points and making them the bottom place in the table - four points worse than the safe position.

Inter Milan

Inter Milan beat Cagliari 4-0 at home last time out. Simone Inzaghi's men have remained unbeaten in the past 9 Serie A games and won 7 of them. The defending champion currently rank the top place with 40 points, one point higher than second-placed AC Milan. Since January 2021, Inter have lost only three games had come from Juventus, Lazio and Real Madrid.

 

Prediction

Salenitana will hope to cheer their supporters on Friday night, but we find it difficult to support the host in this game. Inter Milan are currently in the leading position. This game seems to be a relatively simple three-point for the Italian champion.

 

Pick: Inter Milan to win in -2 AH

Total: Over 3/3.5 goals

Atalanta vs AS Roma

Kick Off: 12/18/2021 10:00

 

Atalanta 

After beating Verona 1-2 away in the last round of league, Atlanta have won six consecutive league victories in a row and currently are the team with best form in Serie A. Such clues helped them narrow the gap with the leader Inter Milan to only three points – rank the third place with 37 points. Gasperini’s side have scored at least two goals in nine of the past ten games across all the competitions.

AS Roma 

After losing to Bologna and Inter Milan in a row in the league, Roma beat Spezia 2-0 in the last round on Monday night, but Jose Mourinho's team did not shine in the game. Looking ahead, Roma have not performed well away from home this season for having lost five of their eight away games this season, especially in the face of stronger opponents - the team currently rank sixth with 28 points in the table.

 

Prediction

Roma have played badly away this season and we can hardly see them happy against the hot Atlantis team here. Atlantis will continue to expand their winning record.

 

 

Pick: Atalanta 

Total: Over 2.5 goals

Atalanta vs Roma

It seemed that this might be Atalanta’s poorest campaign in the previous few seasons after a slow start. However, Gian Piero Gasperini’s side found its mojo back, and they tied six straight wins in the Italian top-flight. That run launched them to 3rd position, being six points behind Inter and having one game in hand. Duvan Zapata and the lads returned to recognizable attacking form and scored less than two goals just once on the previous eleven occasions. They managed to beat Juventus and Napoli on the road, and La Dea wants to keep its winning streak going.

Roma has been pretty inconsistent lately, winning three and losing two games in the previous five rounds. The away side sits in 6th place, being eight points behind the fourth-placed Napoli. Jose Mourinho’s team bounced back with a 2:0 win over Spezia, though, where they finally managed to keep the clean sheet. Nicolo Zaniolo and the lads struggle when playing on the road, as they celebrated just three times in eight outings. Nevertheless, Giallorossi have been pretty efficient on the away grounds, scoring almost two games per contest. However, Roma needs to show more discipline if they want to remain undefeated in this match.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

Despite losing to Villarreal in the Champions League, Atalanta has been excellent lately. La Dea hasn’t lost in the last seven head-to-head clashes against Roma. The hosts are in a much better momentum, and we expect them to book the seventh victory in a row.

Goals Market Prediction

Atalanta’s matches have been a joy to watch, and ten of their previous 11 games went over a 2.5 margin. We saw at least three goals in five of the last seven encounters between these two sides, and this one shouldn’t be much different.

Atalanta to Win @ 1.70 

Over 2.5 FT @ 1.60 

Correct score 2:1 @ 8.50

Milan vs Napoli

Milan had a hiccup against Udinese last weekend, who held them to a 1:1 draw. They stayed in 2nd place, and after Inter’s 5:0 win over Salernitana on Friday, they are four points behind their fierce rivals. Nevertheless, Stefano Pioli’s side stabilized its form after two straight defeats, and they are still active in the title battle. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the lads have been pretty productive in the front, scoring two goals per contest on average. Milan has also been quite confident in front of its fans, allowing only four points to their visitors. Another tough opponent is ahead of them, and Milan wants to get back on the winning track.

Napoli was on fire just a couple of weeks ago, but their poor run saw them slip to 4th place. The visitors are three points behind their upcoming rivals, and they need to bounce back immediately if they want to stay in the title race. Luciano Spalletti’s side spilled two points against Sassuolo despite having a 2:0 lead while they tied two defeats against Atalanta and Empoli at home. Nevertheless, Victor Osimhen could be back in the selection, which should encourage the away fans. Napoli lost just once on the road this season, and they want to end their result crisis against the big rival.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

It is going to be a close matchup that could go either way. Milan has been in a better form lately, but Napoli is very unpredictable and can easily return to the state from the beginning of the campaign. We don’t think the visitors will lose this match.

Goals Market Prediction

Both teams have been pretty productive this season, and the crowd should enjoy an efficient clash. Although their last five encounters at Stadio San Siro stayed under a 2.5 margin, we expect to see goals in both nets.

Napoli AH +0.25 @ 1.95 

BTTS Yes @ 1.65 

Correct score 2:2 @ 13.00

Genoa vs Atalanta

Kick Off: 12/21/2021 15:45

 

Genoa

Last week's 1-0 victory over Salernitana in Coppa Italia brought some short breathing opportunities to Genoa. However, in Serie A, the team lost 3-1 away to Lazio, marking their 10th defeat of the season - only collecting 10 points in 18 games and currently struggling in the relegation zone - only two points higher than the bottom. Shevchenko has got only one point in six Serie A games - meaning that the pressure on this former Milan striker has increased.

Atalanta

Atalanta lost 1-4 to AS Roma at home last time out, ending their six consecutive league wins. Nevertheless, Atalanta have lost only three of the past 15 games, and the consistently outstanding club have beaten Napoli and Juventus this season. In addition, they performed particularly well in the away games for having achieved an amazing record of eight wins and one loss in nine away games.

Prediction

Driven by the weekend defeat, Atalanta can end this year with another away victory. In the next few weeks, the team will certainly have the opportunity to become the top place, because after facing Genoa, the team will meet Torino and Udinese after a short winter break.

 

Pick: Atalanta
