Serie A Predictions: Back A Humdinger In The Basement

Serie A Predictions: Back A Humdinger In The Basement

It’s the penultimate day of Serie A action and Enzo has three Italian football betting predictions lined up

Sassuolo v Cagliari Prediction

Sun 19th May 11:30

The title race may have been over for a long time but the fight to stay in Serie A will go down to the final day. Two teams whose top flight status has not yet been secured are Sassuolo and Cagliari. Depending on results elsewhere Sassuolo, could be relegated on Sunday but because of the playoff system that’s used in Italy, even a defeat might not doom them.

Cagliari are in a stronger position coming into the tie but the Isolani are by no means safe. Just a single point separates them and Empoli who occupy 18th place so they will be eager to get something before the final day showdown with Fiorentina.

This is a crucial match for both sides but particularly for Sassuolo who can’t not go for the win. There is little to gain for Cagliari either by playing it safe either so Over 2.5 Goals +BTTS @ 11/10 is my first Serie A betting prediction. This looks even more likely when you consider that five out of Cagliari and Sassuolos last six have seen three or more goals scored.

Inter Milan v Lazio Prediction

Sun 19th May 17:00

With the Scudetto in the bag and a new points record now impossible, Inter can be forgiven for relaxing a bit. Inzaghi’s side are not yet on the beach but they have lost to Sassuolo, only their second defeat of the season, and drawn with Cagliari in recent weeks.

Lazio still have a lot left to play for. The Biancocelesti have an outside chance of Champions League football but they have a real shot of pipping Roma to 6th place and the Europa League.

Since Sarri resigned, Lazio have only tasted defeat once(W6 D1 L1). They are 4/1 to win but given their patchy away form, that might be a stretch. However, I do think Lazio will get something from the game and Double Chance Draw/Lazio @ 5/4 is a price well worth taking.

Bologna v Juventus Prediction

Mon 20th May 19:45

My final Serie A betting prediction is a Draw @ 21/10 in the battle for third place between Bologna and Juventus. With 67 points apiece but Bologna ahead on goal difference, draws have been the order of the day for these two of late. Bologna have drawn 4 of their last 6 and 5 of Juve’s previous 6 have ended in a stalemate so another one seems highly likely.
