Italian Football Predictions – Round Seven

Sassuolo-Udinese: four wins and two draws for the Neroverdi thus far, who are coming off their best outing of the season as they topped Napoli away despite being undermanned. The Zebrette are trying to get back on track and were decent against Fiorentina and Milan, but they still suffered two more losses and have collected just three points so far: 3-1.

Cagliari-Sampdoria: the Sardinians got pipped by Bologna after two quality wins over Torino and Crotone. The Blucerchiati had won three in a row before running into Genoa, which held them to a tie. Both teams appear to be in fine form: 2-2.

Benevento-Spezia: three losses in a row for the Sanniti, against Roma, Napoli and Verona, despite having some flashes in all of them. After two 2-2, the Aquilotti lasted for about an hour against Juventus. It could be a nice bounce-back spot for the home team, who is more desperate for points: 3-2.

Parma-Fiorentina: the Ducali have picked up just one win so far but seem to have turned the corner and tied two-two in the last two matches against Spezia and Inter. The Viola continue to be seesawing as they were never in the game versus Roma despite doing okay in the previous round against Udinese: 2-1.

Lazio-Juventus: the Biancocelesti have gotten their mojo back thanks to two wins in a row that helped them shake off a slow start, but they might be pretty short-handed depending on how the COVID cases are handled. The Bianconeri returned to winning ways after two draws by pummeling Spezia and generally look to be back on track after their early relative struggles: 1-2.

Atalanta-Inter: the Bergamaschi atoned for two Ls by defeating Crotone, but got manhandled by Liverpool midweek. Tough European result for the Beneamata as well, which is going through a sticky patch in Serie A too as they have collected just one win in the last four rounds, over Genoa, drew with Lazio and Parma and lost to Milan. Neither club is in tip-top shape: 2-2.

Genoa-Roma: the Grifone has alternated losses and draws in the last five matches, with the more encouraging result coming against Sampdoria. The COVID outbreak has surely taken a toll. On the opposite side, the Giallorossi are humming win three wins and a hard-fought tie with Milan in the last four fixtures: 0-2.

Torino-Crotone: after coming close, the Granata finally garnered their first victory of the season in the make-up match against Genoa. The Squali were dropped for the fifth time in the season by Atalanta and do not appear to have a clear path to get out of their struggles: 2-1.

Bologna-Napoli: the Felsinei snapped a three-match losing streak in the Cagliari game, while the Partenopei got got by Neroverdi because of a baffling performance and were not very effective in the last two Europa League matches either, but this is a more feasible match-up: 1-3.

Milan-Verona: the Rossoneri eked it out late against Udinese and then were beaten for the first time in forever by Lille. The always plucky Scaligeri has been sunk just once so far and have actually fared better against the top teams than in the easier fixtures: 1-1.
