Serie A Betting Predictions and Odds (matchday 36)
With the 1-2 loss on Thursday evening at Udinese Calcio, Juventus missed the preliminary decision in terms of championship. Three laps before the end, with a six-point advantage over the first chase Atalanta Bergamo, there is nevertheless everything to support the series champion’s triumph. The pursuers, who are at least mathematically Inter Milan and Lazio Roma at seven or eight points behind, will be even more annoyed by the old lady’s recent slip-up about their own loss of points in recent weeks.
On matchday 36, Bergamo and Inter each have tricky away tasks ahead of them, but at the same time they have the opportunity to increase the pressure on Juventus. Because both pursuers can submit on Friday and Saturday before Juve is only in action on Sunday evening. And with a possibly only three points ahead, the Bianconeri would probably be a little less light. We look below at the upcoming games of the top three, in which the title race could also decide ahead of time in favor of Juve if the results are appropriate.
AC Milan vs Atalanta Bergamo Betting Predictions and Odds
Date: Friday, July 24th, 2020
The best two Serie A teams have already met on Friday evening since the re-start. While Bergamo has already secured another qualification for the Champions League and should continue to dream of winning the first Scudetto in club history with a win in San Siro, AC Milan are in a remote duel with AS Roma for fifth place and thus direct participation in the Group stage of the Europa League. Despite a strong result of 23 points from the last nine games, Milan is still two points behind the Roma and should not let up if the race to catch up is said to be successful in the end.
The fact that Andrea Conti and Alessio Romagnoli, who were injured in the 2-1 win at Sassuolo Calcio on Tuesday, as well as the yellow-blocked Theo, lost three quarters of the last four, is certainly a handicap against Bergamos with 95 goals, the league’s best offensive . However, Milan can currently also rely on its Attack department. Because after scant 28 goals on the first 26 match days, the Rossoneri scored at least twice in a row.
Bergamo has meanwhile been unbeaten in 17 games across all competitions, celebrating 14 victories. In retrospect, however, the 2: 2 week before last at Juventus Torino was really bitter, where Atalanta was the better team and only won through two controversial penalties for Juve. The 1-1 draw last weekend at Hellas Verona was also annoying, but a triple came against FC Bologna (1-0) on Tuesday.
And also in Milan, where Bergamo is very familiar with the Champions League home games played in San Siro, we see Atalanta at the front. Not least because Milan has not won any of their last five home games against Bergamo.
Betting Prediction: Bergamo wins
Genoa vs Inter Milan Betting Predictions and Odds
Date: Saturday, July 25th, 2020
After the 2-2 at AS Roma, Inter Milan did not go beyond a draw on Wednesday against AC Fiorentina (0-0) and ultimately missed Juventus again. Ultimately, after a strong 42 points from the 17 games until Christmas after the turn of the year and also after the Corona break, coach Antonio Conte’s team was simply not constant enough to assert themselves in the title race. Inter would of course still like to keep the small chance of winning the championship, for which a win at CFC Genoa 1893 is mandatory.
This will certainly not be a sure-fire success, as Genoa is still fighting relegation and has put itself in a very good position with three wins in four games in the last two weeks. With a four-point advantage over the first relegation zone, the team of coach Davide Nicola must presumably still have to get one or two points in order to save themselves. With the confidence of the 2-1 derby victory against Sampdoria Genoa on Wednesday, nothing seems impossible against Inter either.
In fact, we don’t think it’s unlikely that Genoa will score against the Nerazzurri. Because while at Inter, knowing that the title chances are slim, the last bit may be missing again, Genoa will do everything possible to avoid relegation.
Betting Prediction: double chance 1X
Juventus Torino vs Sampdoria Genoa Betting Predictions and Odds
Date: Sunday, July 26th, 2020
The championship would not have been perfect even with a win at Udinese Calcio, but with nine points ahead then the renewed Scudetto for Juventus Torino would only have been a matter of form. But now the Bianconeri have to prevent the competition from smelling something really good. A win against Sampdoria would be tantamount to the end of all hopes for the pursuers, although in this case everything could be mathematically clear should Bergamo not win in Milan.
After just one win from the last five games (1-2-2), Juventus is unlikely to make the mistake of not being concentrated. And surely it was also registered in Torino that Sampdoria won five of six games before the derby bankruptcy against Genoa in 1893. With this, the team of coach Claudio Ranieri escaped the relegation battle early on and made it clear what potential actually exists.
Even a very good performance will not be enough for Sampdoria in Torino if Juventus has the necessary focus. Then the significantly higher quality on the part of the old lady will make the difference – and possibly give the starting shot for the title celebration.
Betting Prediction: Juventus wins
