38th and last round of italian Serie A. In this post tips and previews of Sunday matches.
ROMA - PALERMO
Roma, winning the derby against Lazio in the last round, has obtained the 2nd place arithmetically. This clash against Palermo is totally unuseful but Garcia's team wishes to cheer its supporters with a convincing performance.
Palermo will be without Dybala who has just signed a contract with Juventus and without him Palermo has often struggled in terms of goals scored.
We choose the home win.
ROMA: Scorupski; Florenzi, Astori, Yanga-Mbiwa,
Cole; Ucan, De Rossi, Paredes; Ibarbo, Totti, Iturbe.
PALERMO: Sorrentino; Vitiello, G. Gonzalez, Andelkovic; Rispoli, Rigoni, Jajalo, Chochev, Lazaar; Vazquez, Belotti.
TOTTI TO SCORE ANYTIME
SAMPDORIA - PARMA
Sampdoria has the only mission to keep the 7th place which would give them the qualification to the Europa League if Genoa doesn't obtain the UEFA license.
A draw would be enough against Parma, but considering that Parma has always had hard times when playing away (14 loss in 18 matches), we expect the home win.
SAMPDORIA: Viviano; De Silvestri, Silvestre, Romagnoli,
Regini; Acquah, Palombo, Obiang; Soriano; Muriel, Eto’o.
PARMA: Mirante; Cassani, Mendes, Feddal, Gobbi; Varela, Mauri, Jorquera, Nocerino; Ghezzal, Palladino.
SASSUOLO - GENOA
Genoa has obtained the arithmetical qualification to the next Europa League, but the problem is that probably UEFA will not give them the license to play european matches in the next season.
In any case Genoa has been playing a brilliant football for over 2 months and wishes to end this league with another good performance.
Sassuolo has collected 3 wins in a row and especially in its home matches is very tough to face.
Genoa has always conceded at least 1 goal in the last 6 matches and also here we expect a match with lot of goals.
SASSUOLO: Consigli; Vrsaljko, Acerbi, Cannavaro, Peluso;
Missiroli, Magnanelli, Taider; Berardi, Zaza, Sansone.
GENOA: Perin; Roncaglia, Burdisso, De Maio; Rincon, Bertolacci, Kucka, Edenilson; Iago, Pavoletti, Lestienne.
TORINO - CESENA
It shouldn't be hard for Torino to beat a demotivated Cesena which has always played bad in its away matches.
Home team has played a wonderful season, collecting brilliant performances both in Serie A and Europa League.
Another statistic useful in terms of betting is that Cesena has conceded at least 3 goals in the last 3 away matches: HOME WIN and OVER 2.5 sound good.
TORINO: Padelli; Maksimovic, Glik, Moretti; Bruno
Peres, Gazzi, Vives, El Kaddouri, Darmian; Martinez, Amauri.
CESENA: Agliardi; Capelli, Volta, Krajnc, Renzetti; De Feudis, Mudingayi; Defrel, Brienza, Dalmonte; Djuric.
INTER - EMPOLI
Both teams have ended their last 3 matches with the sign BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE and considering the continous lacks of Inter's defense also in this match goals should not be missing.
Inter is forced to win because, in theory, can still hope for a place in Europa League ( If Sampdoria loses against Parma and Genoa doesn't obtain the UEFA license).
We also like Icardi TO SCORE ANYTIME because with 2 goals the young argentinian will pass Toni in the goalscorers table.
INTER: Handanovic; Santon, Ranocchia, Juan Jesus,
Nagatomo; Brozovic, Medel, Kovacic; Hernanes; Icardi, Palacio.
EMPOLI: Bassi; Laurini, Rugani, Barba, Hysaj; Signorelli, Valdifiori, Croce; Saponara; Mchedlidze, Pucciarelli.
HOME WIN (1.50, Sporting
NAPOLI - LAZIO
Napoli-Lazio is the only match that matters in terms of league tables.
Napoli is 3 points below Lazio and needs a win to pass the opponent and get the qualification for the next Champion League.
The problem is that home team has struggled a lot in the last month but at the same time is very unpredictable especially in night matches.
Lazio usually plays with a very offensive style but considering also a draw will give them the access to the main european competition we are not sure this clash will be full of goals.
Probably the best option is NAPOLI DOUBLE CHANCE.
Maggio, Albiol, Koulibaly, Ghoulam; David Lopez, Gargano; Callejon, Hamsik, Mertens; Higuain.
LAZIO: Marchetti; Basta, de Vrij, Gentiletti, Cavanda; Parolo, Cataldi, Lulic; Candreva, Felipe Anderson, Djordjevic.
NAPOLI DOUBLE CHANCE (1.33, Sporting
FIORENTINA - CHIEVO HOME WIN (1.42 10Bet)
