36th round of italian Serie A. In this post tips and reviews of Saturday matches: Inter - Juventus and Sampdoria - Lazio.
INTER - JUVENTUS
Juventus will make a lot of turnover since they have already conquered the Serie A and they have the Italian Cup final on Wednesday against Lazio.
Vidal, Pirlo, Tevez, Evra and Buffon will not even sit on the bench.
The only "names" in the lineups will be Marchsio and Morata, both banned for the cup final.
Inter has often betrayed the expectations in its home matches: 1 win only in the last 6 matches played in "Giuseppe Meazza" Stadium and today both Guarin and Hernanes, who is really on shape, will be missing.
Inter is forced to win to reach a place for the next Europa League.
Double chance in should be the safest choice, but we expect a home win which has really good odds (2.20).
INTER: Handanovic; D’Ambrosio, Ranocchia,
Vidic, Juan Jesus; Brozovic, Medel, Kovacic; Shaqiri; Icardi, Palacio.
JUVENTUS: Storari; Romulo, Barzagli, Ogbonna, Padoin; Pereyra, Marchisio, Sturaro; Pepe, Morata, Coman.
1 (2.20, Betfair)
Lazio has lost the second place, after the defeat in the last round vs Inter and today coach Pioli can't make turnover in sight of the final of Italian Cup against Juventus, because this match against Sampdoria is extremely important and also because some players are unavailable: Mauricio and Marchetti are banned, while Cana, Biglia and De Vrij are injured.
This should be a OVER 2.5 match: Lazio is first in the hypotethical OVER 2.5 table and considering 3/4 of the defense is out, Sampdoria, which is fighting to keep the 6th place, should find one or more goals with ease.
Sampdoria has a great home trend: only 1 defeat in this season (vs Juventus).
A draw would be unuseful for both teams and for that we expect a 2nd half where goals should not be missing.
SAMPDORIA: Viviano; De Silvestri, Silvestre, Romagnoli,
Regini; Acquah, Palombo, Obiang; Soriano; Muriel, Eto’o.
LAZIO: Berisha; Basta, Ciani, Radu, Braafheid; Parolo, Cataldi; Candreva, Mauri, Felipe Anderson; Klose.
