Serie A Week 2 Predictions 2018-2019

Benevento vs Bologna

Bologna showed a good side last week vs Torino and held their nerve against a determined Granata side that is poised to place 6th or 7th this season. Benevento on the other hand took the lead against Sampdoria only to succumb to a stronger home side and lose 2-1 in the end. These two have never met head to head at any competitive level. We prefer Bologna’s attacking players in this one.

Bologna to win outright @ 2.75

Correct score prediction Benevento 1 Bologna 2 

Both teams to score @ 1.90

 

Genoa vs Juventus

Juventus have had a great start to their Serie A campaign, completely flattening Cagliari in a convincing 3-0 win at home. Genoa had a boring draw against Sassuolo and either side couldn’t finish off their actions. There hasn’t been a draw in this fixture since 2013 and we don’t think this will be any different. Allegri will field his best side and probably make a slight change from last Saturday’s game. Juric will keep his side intact. Genoa have upset Juve before on their home ground but there are no mid-week distractions or squad rotations in this one so a convincing win for Juventus is lined up.

Juventus to win -1.5 Asian Handicap @ 2.30

Correct score prediction Genoa 0 Juventus 3 @ 9.00

Juventus over 5.5 team corners @ 1.83

 

Roma vs Inter

Match of the week at the Olimpico on Saturday night. A Roma side that has apparently weakened since the summer transfers have gone through and a strengthened Inter side with Roma’s ex coach. A lot has changed in terms of squad for Inter. Spalletti has tried to give them an attacking mentality and has sought to patch the defensive blunders and weaknesses that Inter has been the victim of in the last 5 years. Roma, at home, are a formidable side and their record at home against Inter in the Serie A is quite good. Roma have managed to average 2 goals against Inter at home and have won 3 of the last 3 with the other 3 being draw games.

Roma over 1.5 team goals @ 1.83

Correct score Roma 2 Inter 1 @ 9.00

Over 5.5 first half corners @ 1.83

Card before 25:00 worth a shot at 1.83

 

Torino vs Sassuolo

Both teams coming off disappointing draws in the first week. Both could have done better and will be hoping to do so in this fixture. Torino are very strong at home and are an attacking side with Ljajic and Bellotti. No major injuries since last week. Mihajlovic will be firing up his squad for this one.

Torino to win outright @ 1.75

Correct score prediction Torino 3 Sassuolo 1

 

AC Milan vs Cagliari

Milan showed us a good attacking mindset in their previous fixtures this year. Cagliari are coming off a bashing against Juventus and are away again this weekend (2 away starts). We don’t see much happening for Cagliari in this one. Milan will be with a full squad and we expect them to be winners in this one, quite convincingly.

AC Milan to win outright -1.5 Asian Handicap @ 1.70

Correct score AC Milan 3 Cagliari 0

 

Chievo vs Lazio

Not as easy a fixture to predict as you might think. Chievo have a good team and are strong at home. Their head to head vs Lazio is also something they are quite proud of. Lazio do not fare well at this stadium and the last win came 3  years ago. Lazio have the stronger team but after their great showing against Juventus in the super cup, they disappointed with a home draw against SPAL without goals.

Both teams to score @ 1.75

Correct score prediction Chievo 1 Lazio 2

Over 2.5 goals in the match @ 2.00

 

Crotone vs Verona

Crotone are poor and will miss their starting defender (red card last week through VAR). Verona looked like a decent side against Napoli but their away game is not always a good story. Verona still have the stronger side and upfront they can score more.

Both teams to score @ 1.90

Over 2.5 goals @ 2.15    ß  really good value

 

Fiorentina vs Sampdoria

Fiorentina got a real bashing last week in the opener against Inter. They return home but we are still not convinced about their current squad. Chiesa will be back from suspension and Simeone will hope to get his first goal. Sampdoria had a good comeback win last weekend and will hope to build on confidence in this one. A few injuries on their team but they still gave a great show.

Fiorentina to win outright @ 1.85

Correct score Fiorentina 2 Sampdoria 1 @ 8.50

Card before 27:00 @ 1.83

 

Napoli vs Atalanta

Napoli return to base after a good win against Nice in the champions league. They’ve had a busy 2 weeks but always seem to have lots of energy and are a scoring juggernaut. Atalanta we unlucky not to get at least a point at home against Roma. Hysaj will miss this one because of a red card against Verona last week. This is Napoli’s first home game in Serie A this season and they will not want to disappoint their fans. Atalanta have now solved the Spinazzola issue but I doubt he will be part of this match.

Agitated encounter, over 5.5 cards @ 1.83

Napoli and over 2.5 goals @ 1.95

No correct score prediction

 

SPAL vs Udinese

Not an exciting encounter at all. SPAL managed a decent draw against Lazio away next week and meet Udinese at home this weekend. Udinese lost to Chievo at home last weekend and are looking to build on that and get better. No previous h2h encounters on this one and we think the away team is better and can snatch a win

Udinese to win outright @  3.10

Correct score SPAL 1 Udinese 2
