Serie A Predictions – Round 27

Lazio-Crotone: the Biancocelesti have fallen into a slump as they have lost in three of the past four matches, at the hands of Inter, Bologna and Juventus. The Squali instead prevailed for the first time in ages last week versus Torino, however they have been abysmal on the road, where they suffered seven Ls in a row and some drubbings: 4-1.

Atalanta-Spezia: the Bergamaschi could not stop Inter and so their winning streak stopped at four games. The Aquilotti have been a tad uninspiring over the past four contests, but they picked up a pair of precious draws against direct contenders like Parma and Benevento. They have been upended in three of the past four road tilts, while the Goddess is no stranger to some home cooking: 3-1.

Sassuolo-Verona: the Neroverdi came a cropper versus Udinese after some decent outings as they had stayed undefeated for three rounds in a row, tying with Napoli and Bologna and edging out Sassuolo. They have prevailed just once over the last nine bouts. The Scaligeri had shined against Parma, Juventus and Benvento, but they too took a spill last week versus Milan: 2-2.

Benevento-Fiorentina: the Sanniti have not triumphed in ten games, but they have shared the spoils in five of the past eight, lastly against Spezia. The Viola are coming off a draw as well, versus Parma. They have been toppled in four of the past away contests, but they are recovering some pieces. Only quality teams have bested the Stragoni at home: 0-0.

Genoa-Udinese: the Rossoblù have lost momentum as they have been dropped by Inter and Roma and have shared the spoils in the more feasible matches over the last month, with Torino, Verona and Genoa. The Friulani instead are surging as they have lost just once nine rounds and have prevailed over Fiorentina and Sassuolo in two of the last three. However, Genoa have been hard to beat at home: 1-1.

Bologna-Sampdoria: the Felsinei are coming off two consecutive road losses versus Cagliari and Napoli. They have been better at home, but they have been torpedoed just by Milan in the past two-and-a-half months, emerging victorious twice. The Blucerchiati have not been successful over the last four games, but they equalized in the most recent two with Genoa and Cagliari: 2-2.

Parma-Roma: the Ducali have shown signs of live over the four encounters, sharing the spoils in three of them, with Udinese, Spezia and Fiorentina and losing only to Inter. However, Roma, which picked up six points against Fiorentina and Genoa, rarely miss out on the opportunity to win when facing minnows: 0-2.

Torino-Inter: the Granata suffered the first loss since early January versus Crotone and surely the COVID outbreak affected them. Inter found a way to topple also Atalanta, pushing their winning streak to seven matches. They have been pretty much a steamroller for some time: 0-3.

Cagliari-Juventus: the Sardinians have awakened since Leonardo Semplici took over as they have collected seven points versus Crotone, Bologna and Sampdoria, where they bagged a late equalizer after the opponents came back on them. The Bianconeri have been pretty good in League play, succeeding in three of the past four contests and dropping points only versus Verona, but all the Ws came at home, while on the road they have had more troubles: 1-1.

Milan-Napoli: despite the absences, the Rossoneri have fared well both against Verona and Manchester United and might have recaptured their early-season spirit. They have put behind a two-game losing streak by sinking Roma, Verona and drawing with Udinese. Same haul over the past three fixtures for Napoli, versus Benevento, Sassuolo and Bologna. They have been terrific at home, but quite poor away, where they have not won prevailed in four matches, taking home just one point since: 1-0.
