Serie A Predictions – Round 35

Spezia-Napoli: the Aquilotti have not won in four rounds but took home two recent precious ties with Inter and Verona. Napoli got pipped at the post by Cagliari last week, failing to take home the third straight W after the convincing ones against Torino and Lazio. The Bianconeri have not lost in six matches on their own turf and have generally given fits to the top sides: 2-2.

Udinese-Bologna: the Friulani led most of the Juventus clash but still suffered the fifth loss in the past seven matches. The Felsinei are coming off a 3-3 tie with Verona, the second in the last three games, and have prevailed just once in the last six contests. It is a tilt between sides that have not much to play for: 1-1.

Inter-Bologna: the Nerazzurri clinched the title with the win over Crotone, the second in a row after a pair of ties, and it remains to be seen with what spirit they will tackle the remaining matches. They will surely look to avoid losing, as literally last they did it half a season ago against this same opponent. The Blucerchiati are in strong form, having bested Verona, Crotone, and Roma in the last four bouts, where they got torpedoed only by Sassuolo: 2-2.

Fiorentina-Lazio: the Viola have picked up five points in the last four games, beating Verona and sharing the spoils with Juventus and Bologna. The Biancocelesti have stumbled only in the Napoli clash recently, taking home seven Ws in the most recent eight rounds, lastly against Milan and Genoa: 1-2.

Genoa-Sassuolo: the Grifone lost for the third consecutive away fixture versus Lazio last week, while they have not been upended since mid-December at home, grabbing several ties. The Neroverdi’s winning streak came to an end after five matches, but still they got a point in the Atalanta contest: 1-1.

Benevento-Cagliari: the guests surely arrive in better shape at the pivotal clash for the relegation struggle as the Stregoni have been defeated in four of five, by Sassuolo, Lazio, Udinese, and Milan, scavenging just a point. On the other hand, the Sardinian had toppled Parma, Udinese, and Roma before equalizing late versus Napoli: 0-1.

Verona-Torino: the Scaligeri stopped the bleeding after four straight losses as they drew with Spezia last week. The Granata continued their survival bid last Monday with a narrow win over Parma, the fourth in the last six rounds, where they have been sunk only Napoli: 0-0.

Parma-Atalanta: the Ducali have been mathematically relegated after the fifth consecutive defeat, this time versus Torino. The Bergamaschi have been held to ties in two of the last three rounds, by Roma and Sassuolo on the road, but will surely have a great opportunity in this one: 1-4.

Roma-Crotone: the same goes for the Giallorossi, which have lost in three of the last four games, in all instances on the road, versus Torino, Cagliari, and Sampdoria, while they have fared better at home, where they stopped Atalanta and took down Bologna in their last two games. It remains to be seen whether the Squali will remain plucky with their faith already being sealed. They put up a decent fight versus Inter last week but were still downed for the seventh of the last eight rounds: 3-1.

Juventus-Milan: both sides snatched healthy wins last week as the Bianconeri mounted a late comeback against Udinese to partially solve their road woes, while the Rossoneri breezed past Benevento in a rare serene W at home. The Old Lady has dominated the match-up in recent years, especially in Turin, and have failed to win just once in the last 11 matches at the Stadium, but they are always quite mercurial, and the Devil boasts the best away record in the League: 2-2.
