Serie A Predictions – Round 12

Sassuolo-Bologna: the two teams have been very seesawing so far. The Neroverdi are coming off a tie with Lecce and have lost in the last three home games, the Felsinei showed some fight against Inter, but they have dropped the last three away contests: draw.

Brescia-Torino: the Rondinelle lost close games in four of the last five outings, drawing just once, and thus changed their coach last week. The Granata partly bounced back against Juventus, but they have not prevailed in over a month. So it is another match between two inconsistent sides: draw.

Inter-Verona: the Nerazzurri edged out opponents in three of their last four games and should continue to march on here, even though the Scaligeri are extremely solid and have collected six points in their last two fixtures against Parma and Brescia: home win.

Napoli-Genoa: the Partenopei have won in just one of their last five tilts, versus Verona, tying instead with Torino, SPAL and Atalanta and ultimately losing to Napoli. The team is a mess with the president threatening to sue the players for a mutiny. Genoa won on Thiago Motta’s debut, but lost in the following two matches against Juventus and Udinese. The situation of the Azzurri is not serene, but they might be able to succeed here anyway: home win.

Cagliari-Fiorentina: the Rossoblù have not lost since the two first rounds and have prevailed in three of the last four, against SPAL, Bologna and Atalanta. In the same stretch, La Viola has been defeated only by Lazio and are coming off a home draw with Parma and a road win in Sassuolo. The two sides are pretty much on the same level: draw.

Lazio-Lecce: the Biancocelesti might have finally turned the corner as they beat Fiorentina, Torino and Milan in their last three outings. The Salentini have instead held the Rossoneri, Juventus, Sampdoria and Sassuolo to a tie in their last four games and have been feisty on the road, but Lazio seem to be too much in  a groove: home win.

Sampdoria-Atalanta: the Blucerchiati finally gutted out a win, pipping SPAL at the post last Monday and have been defeated just once since Claudio Ranieri took over, by Bologna. However, the Bergamaschi need to redeem themselves after the loss to Cagliari and have been terrific on the road, which could allow them to overwhelm the opponents here: road win.

Udinese-SPAL: the Zebrette returned to winning ways after two brutal losses in a strange spot against Genoa. The Estensi instead have had all kind of troubles in away fixtures, where they are nought-for-five and never scored: home win.

Parma-Roma: the Ducali equalized versus Inter and Fiorentina away recently, but weirdly fumbled the home contest with Verona, even though they had won three times here before. La Lupa is humming with three Ws in a row, at the expenses of Milan, Udinese and Napoli, and could be able to forge ahead: road win.

Juventus-Milan: the Bianconeri continue racking up narrow wins, Torino being their latest victims, and have always been successful at the Stadium. The Devil lost their last two matches against quality teams, Roma and Lazio, and might replicate that here: home win.
