37th and penultimate round of italian Serie A. In this post tips and reviews of Saturday matches: Juventus - Napoli and Genoa - Inter.
JUVENTUS - NAPOLI
Juventus won its second title of the season, beating Lazio in the Italian Cup final on Wednesday and coach Allegri in sight of the Champions League final, will send in the pitch the reserves in order to avoid unuseful risks of injuries.
Napoli is then favourite for the win, but beating Juventus in its stadium is never easy, also considering the big rivalry between these clubs.
Away team will be very offensive because it needs a win to go on hoping in the Champions League qualification.
Napoli has always scored in the last 7 matches played (20 goals scored) but at the same time the defense has often showed big lacks during the season and mainly in the last appearances (Napoli has conceded 2 goals in the last round to Cesena which is already relegated.
Better to avoid betting on the winner.
In our opinion BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE should be the safest choice.
JUVENTUS: Buffon; Padoin, Marrone, Ogbonna, De Ceglie;
Sturaro, Marchisio, Pereyra; Pepe; Morata, Coman
NAPOLI: Andujar; Maggio, Albiol, Britos, Ghoulam; David Lopez, Inler; Callejon, Hamsik, Mertens; Higuain.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE (1.55, Matchbook)
GENOA - INTER
Another chance lost to reach the Europa League qualification by Inter in the previous round against Juventus.
Although the defeat Nerazzuri can still hope for the sixth place, but they are forced to beat Genoa.
Inter has showed a good performance against Juventus, but 2 big mistakes sanctioned the defeat (the unfortunate Medel's pass in the first half and the Handanovic's gaffe in the second half).
Inter is very strong when attacking and when making ball possession but the main lack of this squad is the defense which concedes goals in any match.
We expect to see Inter with a very offensive mentality, trying to have the control of the match with Genoa ready to hit counterattacking, a kind of manouver very well refined by coach Gasperini in the current season.
Genoa has collected 4 home wins in a row scoring always at least 2 goals, while Inter has collected 3 away wins in a row always scoring at least 2 goals too.
Hard to predict the result, also in this case we prefer BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE.
GENOA: Perin; Roncaglia, Burdisso, De Maio;
Edenilson, Rincon, Bertolacci, Kucka; Iago, Pavoletti, Lestienne.
INTER: Handanovic; D’Ambrosio, Ranocchia, Juan Jesus, Nagatomo; Brozovic, Medel, Kovacic; Hernanes; Icardi, Palacio.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE (1.44, Sporting
