Serie A season 2018-19 preview

Napoli vs Atalanta

Date and time: October 17, 2pm

Location: Stadio San Paolo

Atalanta have made a perfect start to the Serie A season. Napoli’s only blot was a 3-0 defeat given to them because they didn’t travel to Juventus due to coronavirus. This is the biggest game of the weekend apart from the Milan Derby, and both will cancel each other out in what promises to be a really exciting game.

Result: Draw 5/2 @ Bet365

Sampdoria vs Lazio

Date and time: October 17, 5pm

Location: Luigi Ferraris Stadium

Neither Sampdoria nor Lazio have set the world alight in the early weeks of the season, and the visitors here will need to step things up if they are going to build on last season. But Lazio have won 18 of 28 meetings with Sampdoria and we think they’ll win another.

Result: Lazio win 6/5 @ Bet365

Spezia vs Fiorentina

Date and time: October 18, 2pm

Location: Stadio Alberto Picco

Spezia are expected to struggle this season and so won’t be too disappointed by winning just one of their first three games. Fiorentina will be expected to get the victory here, and we think they may just do that.

Result: Fiorentina win 8/13 @ Bet365

Roma vs Benevento

Date and time: October 18, 7:45pm

Location: Stadio Olimpico

Roma face a really tough task against a very impressive Benevento side. Filippo Inzaghi has done a great job there, with two wins from three games. But Roma have already drawn at home to Juventus; we think they should have enough quality to come out on top in this one.

Result: Roma to win 1/3 @ Bet365

Odds correct as of 15/10/2020
