Serie A Predictions & Bitcoin Betting Tips
Bologna vs Juventus
The hosts are currently 10th on the Serie A table; however, the TOP 6 is not out of reach because the difference is just 5 points. They haven’t been their best lately as Bologna haven’t won a match in 3 rounds. Facing Juventus right now is probably not the best thing that can happen to them but that’s the schedule and they have to play. Their fans would have given them a nice boost since it’s a home game. However, due to the Corona virus, all games are played without an audience. This will surely influence all home games where the hosts are playing against one of the top sides in the Serie A. On top of that, Bologna haven’t won against Juventus in all competitions since 2011. On Monday night, they will have an opportunity to break the bad results cycle against Juventus.
The visitors would have had a real packed schedule had everything gone as planned. However, after 3 months of not playing, things are a bit different. The postponed Coppa Italia games were already played last week. Juventus won the semi-finals against Milan and they will now play in the final which is scheduled for Wednesday, the 17th of June. Juventus have enough time to rest their players after the Cup final because the match against Bologna is played on Monday night. However, we all saw that Juventus are far from their best during the match against Milan. Even though they played the whole game with an extra player, the “Old Lady” failed to score against a mediocre Milan side. Their star player Ronaldo even missed a penalty. The squad has little time to improve because the title race will be tight until the last round.
Bologna have a lot of quality in their squad this year and they are playing very good football. In the reverse fixture Juventus won 2:1 in a very tough match that could have gone either way. Nevertheless, the visitors have more quality and they also can’t afford to drop any points because the title race is very tight. For that reason, we are backing an Away Side Victory @ 1.54 odds.
Bologna vs Juventus
Inter Milan vs Sassuolo
The team from Milan is doing an excellent job at challenging Juventus for the title. They had a fight with the Serie A organization because of the games being postponed. Inter attacked the league because they were postponing their games while others were allowed to play. The belief is that it’s not the same chasing someone on the table when they have just 1 point advantage compared to a 7 point advantage. Nevertheless, the COVID-19 crisis turned into a panic and all football was cancelled for 3 months. The players have finally returned to the football fields but all games will be played without fans on the stands. When it comes to their next fixture, Sassuolo are one of the teams that has troubled Inter the most. They beat them earlier this season in a thrilling match that finished 3:4 in favor of Inter.
The visitors are having another fine season as their aim is to finish somewhere in the middle of the table. Regardless of that, Sassuolo have been tormenting Inter for years. If we don’t count the fixture that Inter narrowly won earlier this season, in the last 5 years Inter have won just 1 match against them. Before the lock-down, Sassuolo were in fine form. They won 3 out of the last 5 matches while they lost just 1 of them. However, we don’t know how they will perform after taking a break for 3 months. Sassuolo also have the advantage of playing Inter at home without fans. Their stadium is always full with fans which is something Inter will be missing for the rest of the season. Sassuolo need another performance like the one they had in the reverse fixture this season.
Quality and performance wise, Inter have the upper hand before this game is played. However, they won’t have any fans at home and Sassuolo are a team that knows how to defeat them. Nevertheless, Inter will do everything in their power to win the match. That’s why, we are backing a Home Side Victory & Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.79 odds.
Inter Milan vs Sassuolo
Atalanta vs Lazio
Once again, Atalanta manage to be the surprise of the whole Serie A. Even though they sit 4th on the table with 14 points below the leaders, they have the best goals scored record. In several occasions this season they scored more than 5 goals against their opponents. Sadly, what was an event of celebration turned into a nightmare. Atalanta kicked Valencia out of the Champions League; however, because of COVID-19 most of their fans got infected with the virus which caused the territory of Bergamo to be the most affected by it. This season they already played with Lazio once in the Serie A and it was a fantastic match that finished 3:3. Their form was fantastic in the last weeks before the lock-down started. If they can replicate that form immediately, Lazio will be in a lot of trouble.
No one in the world expected Lazio to be challenging for the title. As a matter of fact, they are doing a better job than both Juventus and Inter. Lazio have the best goals scored to goals conceded record. With everything else being postponed until after the leagues are finished, Lazio just have to concentrate on winning every fixture until the end of the season. If they manage that, the title might end up in their hands. Playing against Atalanta has been taxing in the last couple of seasons. This time around, Atalanta are will surely challenge them for all 3 points. Lazio, on the other hand, can’t afford to drop any points at all if they hope to win the title at the end of the season. Juventus is just 1 point above them and a slip up is bound to happen eventually.
If we look at the squads, Lazio might have a bit more quality than Atalanta. Performance wise both sides are doing equally good. The only real advantage Atalanta have are home turf; however, since the games are going to be played without fans, this advantage is gone. Nevertheless, we are expecting another game filled with goals. For that reason, we are backing Over 2.75 Goals @ 1.70 odds.
