The Italian League, called Serie A TIM, is one of the big national competitions in Europe and, because of that, receives a lot of attention from bettors around the world. They usually choose it for its interesting confrontations and great players.
With the help of specialist in sports betting Kate Richardson, we prepared three predictions for games from the Serie A TIM. Don’t forget to take a look at her profile here before checking our betting tips.
Sassuolo – Parma
Sassuolo and Parma will face each other at the MAPEI Stadium for matchday 18. In the last match that these two played against each other, in February 2020, Parma won by 1-0.
The hosts head into this game after losing at home by 2-0 against SPAL in a match for the Italian Cup. In their last Serie A game, they also suffered a defeat, this time away, by 3-1 to Juventus. Now, playing in their ground against Parma, they will probably focus on having the ball and proposing the game. Keep an eye on Italian Francesco Caputo, who is one of the best scorers of the squad with 6 goals so far.
Parma’s moment is also not good. In their last match, they lost by 2-0 at home against Lazio, registering their 5th loss in a row in the Italian League. Now, the visitors will probably focus on counterattacks, but also knowing that they need to score if they want to have chances. Gervinho could make the difference for Parma, as he is their top scorer with 4 goals.
Looking at these facts, it is possible that Sassuolo will dominate the ball possession and have more opportunities of goals, since Parma will play defensively focusing on counterattacks. However, both sides have been having a lot of defensive problems, making it a good possibility for an over 2.5 prediction.
So we are going to bet on: Over 2.5 Goals
Inter Milan – Juventus
Internazionale will welcome Juventus at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza for match day 18. In this ground, the head to head between these two is really balanced. However, the last time they met at this stadium, in October 2019, the visitors left with the three points after a 2-1 victory.
Inter will head into this game after a difficult qualification in the Italian Cup after beating Fiorentina in extra time. In Serie A, they continue chasing the top of the league, as they are currently in second place. For this match against Juventus we don’t believe there will be many differences. They will continue focusing on quick transitions and attacks through the wings. Their two most advanced men will probably be Lautaro Martinez and Alexis Sanchez.
The Old Lady also needed extra time to beat Genoa at home in the Italian Cup and qualify to the next round. In the Italian League, they are currently in 4th place and trying to win some positions. For that, we don’t believe manager Adrea Pirlo will change things in the squad, especially because they have really talented players. In the attack, Juve will probably count on Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata to score goals.
The most likely scenario for this match will be for both sides to find the back of the net at least once. We expect Juventus to control more the game, taking into account their squad and style of playing, but Inter Milan will be at home and they want the three points.
So we are going to bet on: Both Teams to Score.
Cagliari – AC Milan
Cagliari will welcome the current leaders of the Italian League, AC Milan, at the Sardegna Arena. In their last time these two clubs faced each other in this stadium, in January 2020, the visitors left with the three points after a 2-0 win.
The hosts head into this game after a 3-1 defeat away from home against Atalanta, making their situation a little complicated in the league table, as they are in 16th place. Cagliari usually likes to make many transitions from the defensive to the offensive line and we believe they won’t change that against Milan. Fabrizio Caligara will have the mission to create the attacks of the home side.
Stefano Poli’s men head into this match after a qualification on penalties against Torino in the Italian Cup. Apart from that, the three points are important for Milan, who are currently at the top of the league table and want to continue there. The visitors will count on their three most advanced players, who will probably be Hauge, Ibrahimovic and Castillejo, to score the goals.
Even though they are playing away, we believe that Milan are the great favorites for winning this match. Not only because they are in a good moment in the league, but also because they have more individual talents than the home side. Apart from that, we could also take Cagliari’s bad moment into consideration, as they are currently five games in a row without winning.
We are betting on: AC Milan to win
