Serie A season 2018-19 preview

Parma vs Napoli

Date and time: Sunday September 20, 11:30am

Location: Stadio Ennio Tardini

After failing to reach the Champions League last season, Napoli will be hoping to start well in Serie A this term. They kick off at Parma on Sunday. The home side’s last five games have all been decided by a goal, including a 2-1 win over Napoli back in July. But Genaro Gattuso has strengthened his attack with the signing of Victor Osimhen and we think he could lead an away charge here. Back him to score first at 13/5 with Bet365.

Correct score: Parma 1-2 Napoli 15/2 @ Bet365

Juventus vs Sampdoria

Location: Allianz Stadium

Date and time: Sunday September 20, 7:45pm

All eyes will be on Andrea Pirlo as the new Juventus manager makes his debut in the position. Juve are expected to be chased all the way in the title race by Inter this term, but they’ll be hoping to get off to a good start at home to Sampdoria, with the Nerazzurri not in action this weekend. It has been a strange summer for the champions, but they won 2-0 in this fixture last year against a side who failed to win any of the final four games they played last season. Cristiano Ronaldo will be looking to get off to a flyer, and you can back him to score first at 2/1 with Bet365.

Correct score: Juventus 2-0 Sampdoria 6/1 @ Bet365

AC Milan vs Bologna

Date and time: Monday September 21, 7:45pm

Location: San Siro

AC Milan ended last season in superb form, and that has made them a team to watch in the early weeks. They scored at least three goals in their last five Series A games before the summer break, including five against a Bologna side who won just once in six. We think they’ll pick up where they left off, and you should back Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score first at 5/2 with Bet365.

Correct score: AC Milan 3-0 Bologna 11/1 @ Bet365


Odds correct as of 16/9/2020
