Serie A Round 17 Match Previews

 

Midweek Round in Italy: Serie A will be played between Wednesday and Thursday.

Inter-Lazio on Wednesday at 20:45 CET while two matches, Crotone-Milan and Bologna-Juventus, are postponed due to the concomitance of the Italian SuperCup scheduled in Doha (Qatar) on Friday 23rd.

 

The defeat occurred in Rome against Lazio on Sunday night, the second in a row has showed once again both Fiorentina's qualities and lacks.
Fiorentina has become similar to the one of the past season: a good offensive potential that assure a good number of goals but a disorganized defensive phase.
Indeed Fiorentina's latest six maches all ended OVER 2.5 GOALS exception made for the clash vs Genoa started from the 28' (3rd Serie A Round).
Goals are expected also in the next clash against Napoli, considering also visitors' offensive gamestyle.
Napoli are the team with most goals scored so far (37) and 13 of those were scored in the latest 3 games with Dries Mertens author of 2 hat-tricks in a row!
Napoli are on a great moment of form and are favourite although Fiorentina are still unbeaten in their stadium.
Our safest choice is NAPOLI DOUBLE CHANCE + OVER 1.5 GOALS. along with BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE but an away win is expectable and the odds (2.10 / 2.15) can give a real boost to your Accumulators.

 

After the defeat occurred in Empoli, club and supporters are starting to doubt of Cagliari's coach, Massimo Rastelli: the team occupies a decent position in the league with its 20 points but what worries is the big number of goals conceded: 39 in 17 matches, by far the worst defence in the Serie A.
Although the 11 points above the relegation zone statistics say that only a team was able to stay in Serie A after so many goals conceded in 17 rounds (Pro Patria in the Serie A 1950/1951), while all the rest have been relegated.
The home clash against Sassuolo is probably crucial for the coach: another defeat would mean to be sacked but seems that players are with their coach and will probably give everything in order to get three points.
Cagliari have done well in their stadium so far (5W-1D-2L) and are favourite here because Sassuolo have half of the team injured (really) and have not won in their latest 8 away Serie A matches.
Goals are expected: Cagliari, as said above, have the worst defence but at home have scored at least 2 goals in 6 of their 8 home matches in the league.

CAGLIARI DOUBLE CHANCE + OVER 1.5 GOALS is our safest choice along with BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE.

 

Palermo-Pescara is the clash between the last two teams in the league: Palermo occupy the 19th position with their 9 points while Pescara are one point below.
Palermo earned an incredible win at Genoa after suffering for big part of the game and that victory could give a much needed boost for their morale in sight of the crucial game against Pescara.
The same cannot be said for their opponents. Pescara were beaten 3-0 by Bologna last round and club urges to spend money in the next transfermarket and buy some decent players if they want to fight for the relegation because the team has clear lacks both in defence and attack.
Palermo are yet to gain their first home win, and there will not be a better chance to do so than in this game and our main prediction here is HOME WIN.

 

Roma lost against Juventus in the previous round and now the gap from Bianconeri is 7 points wide.
It will be difficult to recover the disadvantage but Roma have the chance to end the year with a convincing win in the imminent clash against Chievo.
Visitors currently occupy the 10th position in the league and basically their seasonal target, avoiding relegation, has almost been accomplished already.
Chievo mainly rely on the costant pressing made by the players who always give everything in terms of run and sacrifice.
After two wins in a row Chievo can now face Roma with less pressure and the several absences among visitors could be decisive.
Roma have won their latest 11 home matches (considering also the past season).
Coach Spalletti can not count on Manolas and De Rossi but Salah is finally back after his short injury and is ready to give his crucial contribution.

Our main choice is HOME WIN here.

 

Since Delneri took the place of Iachini Udinese have collected good results and now the team is far from relegation zone thanks to three wins in a row.
Delneri has given a big contribute to improve the offensive phase and indeed Zapata and Thereau have scored with a certain continuity in the last 8 matches, especially the Frenchman with 8 goals and 2 winning passes served.
Sampdoria have scored and conceded a goal for the latest 12 matches and have lost their latest 2.
We expect a reaction from home side and our choice is SAMPDORIA DOUBLE CHANCE.
