OUR man in Italy, Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) looks to continue his hot streak in Serie A with his best Saturday selections.
Atalanta v Bologna | Saturday 15:00
I enjoyed so much Atalanta’s run and I like to trust them also in the final part of the season. This team have showed competitiveness also at the Stadio Olimpico against Rome, proving to be a solid rival for Lazio, Milan and Inter.
I trust their chance to win at home game against Bologna. They’re usually rock solid on home soil, and their recent draw against Sassuolo was only an anomaly as they clearly dominated that game, wasting gallons of chances in the second-half.
I also think that Bologna will offer less resistance given their season formal form. For this reason I am backing Atalanta to win on the -1.5 Asian Handicap basis (19/17 188BET).
Fiorentina v Inter Milan | Saturday 19:45 | BT Sport
Inter will be frustrated by the 97th minute equaliser they conceded to Cristian Zapata in the Milan derby last week. That goal cost the Nerazzurri three points and allowed AC to avoid defeat in the first ‘Chinese derby’.
Despite only getting a draw from that game, Inter have showed the ability of their attackers, easily finding the net for two goals, whilst also creating and conceding several chances.
I think we can have the same bet when they travel to Florence, and I reckon it is the best strategy to back the Nerazzurri to score Over 1.5 Goals (11/10 Betway).
They are still far from solid in the defensive end, and the absence of Joao Miranda makes them unlikely to keep clean sheet. Instead, it is very much possible that they will score more than one goals.
In their away matches, Inter have failed to score only once since December, winning 60% of those games.
Atalanta v Bologna – Atalanta -1.5 Asian Handicap (19/17 188BET)
Fiorentina v Inter Milan – inter Milan to score Over 1.5 Goals (11/10 Betway)
