The team of Juventus will be a host against Empoli in Round №31 of the Italian Serie A. There is no doubt that the team from Turin will win the match. The question is how many goals will they score.
Juventus is fighting for another title in the Calcio as a leader in the standings. Their main contestant – Napoli – does not lag behind and there are no mistake left for the players of Juventus. Juventus scored, defended well and look like a team that deserves the title. The club was eliminated from the Champions League and now the title is a priority.
Many of the footballers played games for their national teams during the week. The core of the Italian national team is composed of players of Juventus. Italy lost heavily in Germany on Tuesday and now the mood in the team is not good. However, the match with Germany was a friendly one, lessons were taken and the Juventus players continue on their way to the title.
Paw Pogba is a key player for the team – engine in the midfield, but now the eyes are directed towards Paulo Dybala – world-class striker. He adapted very quickly to the team and became the leading scorer. He scores, he assists, he passes opponents with ease, he made the fans forget about Carlos Tevez.
Another star in the attack is Álvaro Morata, who also became a favorite of the fans. He scores and he takes a responsibility in difficult moments. He managed to dispossess Mandzukic from a starting list, and now the pair of strikers Dibala – Morata is the best in the whole Italian Serie A.
Bookmakers offer low odds for a Juventus win – usually 1.3 to win for the hosts. Therefore, you could bet on over 2.5 goals in the game. Betting predictions for this to happen is between 1.85 and 1.95 – enough tempting odds. Empoli attack is not convincing and you also could bet on “No” at stake “Both teams to score”. The odds are lower, but the bettings are more secure.
Juventus will defeated Empoli with many goals and without allowing a goal.
Yet another exciting derby in Serie A – the battle for Rome.
The team of AS Roma is in a series of nine consecutive games without a loss and will try to continue this series. The team of SS Lazio is quite inconsistent in his performances and seemed to accept the position in mid-table. Roma, however, have to defend their third position in the standings, assuring a participation in the Champions League. The chances for the title are gone, but the Champions League is sufficiently motivating and victory over eternal rival too.
Roma has the best attack in Serie A and the betting predictions indicate that the team will score again. The defense of Roma is a weak link, so I suggest a bet on “both teams to score” in the game. The bookmakers offer odds for this and the Bet365.com odds are equally – 1.91. Most bookmakers offer lower odds on “both teams to score in the game “, confirming the tip.
In matches in the week Edin Dzeko, Miralem Pjanić and Stephan El Sharawi scored goals for the national teams of their countries. Add Mohammed Salah and Diego Perotti and there is the shock attack power of AS Roma. These are players who know how to score and they duly deliver it.
The team of SS Lazio will try to stop the unbeaten Roma’s team and their player will be determined to score. The traditions of the derby indicate that there is no favorite in the match. Therefore it is difficult to predict a winner. But the attractiveness of the match is guaranteed and gamblers will be able to verify that.
This season’s leading scorers for SS Lazio are mostly midfielders – Antonio Candreva, Felipe Anderson and Lucas Biglia. It seems that Candreva and Felipe Anderson will split with the team at the end of the season, because there are interests from big clubs of the English Premier League. What better way to shine and to arrange a transfer than to score a goal for a victory over AS Roma?!
So my prediction is to bet on ” both teams to score” in the derby of Rome.
Atalanta and AC Milan will play each other in the upcoming Sunday match of the 31st round of the Italian Serie A.
AC Milan fell behind in pursuit of a place in the League’s top three and the Champions League now looks unattainable.
The places, assuring participation in the Europa League, are occupied by Fiorentina and FC Inter and now AC Milan’s ambitions are focused on winning the Coppa Italia. Now Milan is sixth in the standings, which also would provide quota for participation in the Europa League. It is unlikely the pursuers Sassuolo and Lazio to replace Milan from the sixth place, so it is not expected the “rossoneri” players to be fully concentrated.
Atalanta recovered from a rather unpleasant series of 14 consecutive games without a win. In the last round of the championship the players from Bergamo won 2:0 against the team of Bologna and now the confidence of the players has increased. But the “relegation zone” is still close and Atalanta could not afford to underestimate this match. Any point is important and the players will fight for it. And the fans of the home team will hope for the same.
You could follow the live result of this match on Livescore.in.
I expect a typical Italian match in which AC Milan to retain of the host’s attacks in the first minutes and then the game to equalize. On paper Milan is the most classy team, but Atalanta will be more motivated. Therefore, my prediction is for parity in the match as a result. The bookmakers offer better odds for draw, as the highest is at Pinnacle Sports – 3.32.
Both teams did not score many goals in their last matches of the championship. AC Milan’s attack is not as effective as it was early in the season. In their last 5 games players have scored just 3 goals. Atalanta scores less than one goal per game. So I do not expect a lot of goals in this meeting and you could bet on ‘under 2.5 goals in the match” where the coefficients reach 1.70.
