36th round of italian Serie A. In this post tips and reviews of Sunday matches.
SASSUOLO - MILAN
Sassuolo and Milan will play withouth any particular motivation.
Sassuolo obtained the arithmetical safety beating Cesena in the last round, while Milan is too far to reach a place in Europa League.
In the 3 previous clashes between these teams 13 goals have been scored: 4.3 the average each match and considering this is a end of the season match is very likely goals should not be missing.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE and OVER 2.5 the best choices.
SASSUOLO: Consigli, Vrsaljko, Acerbi,
Cannavaro, Peluso, Biondini, Magnanelli, Missiroli, Berardi, Zaza, Sansone.
MILAN: Lopez, Abate, Mexes, Paletta, Bocchetti, Poli, De Jong, Van Ginkel, Honda, Destro, Bonaventura.
ATALANTA - GENOA
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.
ATALANTA: Sportiello, Bellini, Benalouane,
Stendardo, Dramé, Cigarini, Migliaccio, Carmona, D’Alessandro, Pinilla, Gomez.
GENOA: Perin, Roncaglia, Burdisso, Izzo, Rincon, Bertolacci, Kucka, Edenilson, Iago, Borriello, Lestienne.
TORINO - CHIEVO
Atalanta is very close to obtain the arithmetical safety with a 8 points gap above Cagliari with 3 remaining matches to be played.
Genoa, instead, is fighting to reach the 6th place, the last useful for Europa League qualification.
Genoa is on a very good shape as showed in the last round, but the absences of Perotti and Niang reduce a lot its offensive potential.
The last 4 matches between Atalanta and Genoa all ended with a draw (three times 1-1 and a 2-2).
Atalanta has collected 8 BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE in a row and has lost only once in the last 10 matches, drawing 7 times.
Maksimovic, Glik, Moretti, Darmian, Benassi, Gazzi, El Kaddouri, Molinaro, Martinez, Maxi Lopez.
CHIEVO: Bizzarri, Frey, Dainelli, Cesar, Biraghi, Birsa, Radovanovic, Izco, Botta, Paloschi, Meggiorini.
ROMA - UDINESE
Although the latest negative results, Roma still occupies the 2nd place.
Udinese has often showed awful performances during this season, especially in its away games.
We expect home team to win, because of their higher motivations and a negative result could be badly accepted by their supporters, really tired of Roma's impotence to score in Olimpico Stadium.
ROMA: De Sanctis, Torosidis, Manolas, Astori,
Holebas, Pjanic, De Rossi, Nainggolan, Iturbe, Totti, Ibarbo.
UDINESE: Karnezis, Widmer, Domizzi, Danilo, Piris, Allan, Pinzi, Badu, Guilherme, Thereau, Di Natale.
