Serie A Predictions: The Derby d’Italia Takes Centre Stage

Serie A Predictions: The Derby d’Italia Takes Centre Stage

The Derby d’Italia takes centre stage this weekend and Enzo has two Serie A betting predictions lined up for it

Frosinone v AC Milan Prediction

Sat 3rd Feb 17:00

Milan are seven points adrift of arch rivals Inter at the summit but the upcoming Derby d’Italia could provide them with an opportunity to make up ground. A trip to Frosinone is the perfect time to pick up a win and keep the pressure on the league leaders. Milan have found the net in all eleven of their away games. That trend should continue here as Frosinone have conceded in seven of the previous eight. There is little value in backing an away win so instead my first Serie A betting prediction for the weekend is Rafael Leao anytime scorer @ 9/5. The Portuguese attacker should get plenty of chances against a leaky Frosinone defence.

Torino v Salernitana Prediction

Sun 4th Feb 11:30

My second Serie A betting prediction is Over 2.5 goals @ 11/10 in Torino v Salernitana. Filippo Inzaghi’s side are desperate for wins to lift them out of the bottom three and have been going all out to find them. Unfortunately, for Salernitana these victories have not been forthcoming despite some decent performances. Seven of their last eight have seen over 2.5 goals scored which is a marked turnaround since the start of the campaign when they were one of the dullest sides in the league. Torino are not synonymous with goals but at home, four of their previous six have topped the 2.5 mark.

 

Inter Milan v Juventus Prediction

Sun 4th Feb 19:45

The weekends Italian football action finishes on a high with the Derby d’Italia. This seasons edition is one of the most consequential in years because it will play a big part in deciding the Scudetto race. Second placed Juventus have again been underestimated by the bookies and are available at a massive 7/2 to emerge victorious. The Bianconeri have a fairly strong record against their historic rivals (W6, D3 L2) They won both home and away last year and drew the reverse fixture earlier in the campaign.

Inter have only lost once all season but have been rather fortuitous of late. Verona and Fiorentina both missed late penalties that would have seen them draw with the Winter Champions. Were it not for these huge slices of fortune, the Nerazzurri would be currently sitting in second place.

As always, this will be a tight game that most likely will be decided by a single goal. Juventus are excellent value for the win but I am going to play it safe and back Double Chance Draw/Juventus @ EVS which in itself is a decent price. I’m also chancing Juventus 1-0 @ 10/1. I feel that if Allegri’s side are to sneak it, 1-0 is the most likely manner in which they do so.
