Serie A Predictions: Another Stalemate Beckons At The Foot Of The Table

Serie A Predictions: Another Stalemate Beckons At The Foot Of The Table

Enzo hopes to keep his profitable run going this weekend with three Serie A betting predictions for this weekends Italian football action

Napoli v Bologna Prediction

Sat 11th May 17:00

After a fantastic season, Bologna could still lose out on Champions League football which would be an absolute tragedy. Even with Italy securing the extra 5th place in the competitions expanded format, the Felsinei are not yet guaranteed a top 5 finish. Thiago Motta’s side have only lost once, to Inter, in their last 15 games but a run of four draws in five games has hampered their progress towards an historic achievement.

Their opponents Napoli are also in a bit of a draw rut with 5 in their last 8. The reigning champions have little to play for and will want the season to finish as soon as possible and put the nightmare behind them.

Even though the pressure seems to be taking its toll on Bologna, they are good value for the victory here so, Bologna Win @ 5/2 is my first Serie A bet for the weekend.

Lecce v Udinese Prediction

Mon 13th May 17:30

Focusing on the relegation threatened clubs served me well last weekend and this is another fixture that has potential. Lecce only need 1 point to ensure their top flight status for next season and with tricky final games against Atalanta and Napoli, this is their best opportunity to secure it.

Udinese on the other hand sit in 18th, two points behind Empoli and Frosinone who face Lazio and Inter respectively. By a strange twist of scheduling fate, Udinese will take on both these two on matchdays 37 and 38 in what will be  do or die affairs for all involved. With the Zebrette’s opponents likely to come away empty handed this weekend, a point for Fabio Cannavaro’s team would keep them in the running coming into the final showdown. A stalemate would serve Lecce well too so the Draw @ 9/4 would not be a shock result.

Fiorentina v Monza Prediction

Mon 13th May 19:45

My final Serie A betting prediction is for a dead rubber of a game which is always dangerous. Neither Fiorentina or Monza have anything left to play for. However, Fiorentina did reach the Conference League Final for the second time in a row after a hard fought draw with Club Brugge on Thursaday. This should give Monza the advantage in terms of focus and fitness coming into this fixture. Both sides have identical league form (W2 D3 L3) so I cant understand why an away win is as big as 5/1 with some bookmakers. As tempting as it is to back the win, I will play it safe and back Double Chance Draw/Monza @ 11/8 which in itself is very good value.
