Calcio Predictions – Round 18

Lazio-Roma: the Biancocelesti are coming off two wins in a row and have lost just once in the past five rounds, so they are getting back on track. Just one defeat for the Giallorossi in the last seven and they held Inter to a tie last week, but that signature wins against a top team keeps eluding them: 1-1.

Bologna-Verona: the Felsinei have not been successful in eight games, where they have shared the spoils five times and were upended by Inter, Roma and lastly Genoa. Two wins in the last three tilts instead for the Scaligeri, versus Spezia and Crotone, plus a tie with Torino. They have been going strong on the road: 0-1.

Torino-Spezia: after four contests without losing, where they equalized in three occasions, the Granata did not put up much of a fight versus Milan. They have prevailed just once in their last 11 matches. The Aquilotti are coming off two wins in a row as they blindsided Napoli and Sampdoria, but likely will not have their top man Nzola: 1-0.

Sampdoria-Udinese: the Blucerchiati could not follow up the great win over Inter as they came a cropper versus Spezia, suffering the third lost in the last four outings, they other coming versus Sassuolo and Roma. Udinese have fallen back into a slump with three Ls (Benevento, Juventus and Napoli) and just a draw, with Bologna, in the last four games. It is a clash between ailing sides: 2-2.

Napoli-Fiorentina: the Azzurri did not look great but found a way to down Udinese, taking home the second win in the last three rounds and bouncing back from the faux pas with Spezia. The Viola have finally prevailed at home as they nipped Cagliari, notching the second W in the last four matches. They have been toppled just one in the last five tilts: 1-1.

Crotone-Benevento: three defeats in a row for the Squali, including a couple of ugly ones with Inter and Roma. The Sanniti could not keep up with Milan and Atalanta, but they have been good in the more feasible matches lately, besting Genoa, Udinese and Cagliari: 1-2.

Sassuolo-Parma: the Neroverdi produced a valiant effort but got beat by Juventus, their third tumble in a row against top competition after the results with Milan Atalanta. They have instead taken care of business against the two Genoa teams and Parma are coming off five consecutive losses and their new coach’s bump was erased by countless injuries: 2-0.

Atalanta-Genoa: the Bergamaschi keep barbecue-chicken opponents and, after Fiorentina, Roma, Sassuolo and Atalanta, also Benevento fell on the sword. They should be able to keep it going despite the fact that Genoa have surely woken up after the coaching change, losing just once in the past four, where they have sunk Spezia and Bologna and shared the spoils with Lazio: 3-1.

Inter-Juventus: the Nerazzurri have slammed the brakes after eight straight wins as they had a misstep versus Sampdoria and then could not come out on top in the Roma clash. Both happened on the road, while at home they strung together a five-match winning streak. The Old Lady has emerged victorious in three a row, versus Udinese, Milan and Sassuolo and in six of the last five. They are undefeated in away contests: 2-2.

Cagliari-Milan: no end in sight for the crisis of the Rossoblù, who have looked progressively worst in the last four contests, where they lost against Roma, Napoli, Benevento and Fiorentina. They have not won since early November. The Rossoneri quickly got back on track after the Juventus loss by breezing past Torino, notching the fourth win in the past five rounds: 0-2.
