OUR man in Italy, Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) looks to continue his hot streak with his best bets from Saturday’s showdowns between Juventus vs Lazio and Roma vs Napoli.
Juventus v Lazio | Saturday 17:00 | BT Sport
Two big matches in Serie A today, the first one starting at five o’clock with Juventus hosting Lazio at the Allianz Stadium.
Honestly, I would imagine that as a more tactical game with Lazio usually facing big teams with lot of respect. Juventus also do not like to expose them too much, but I do believe in their new goal trend that I am praising since the start of the season.
This is paying dividends for now as the Bianconeri have gone 6 Over 2.5 goals out of seven games.
What is pushing me towards goals, despite some possible tactical trap, are the numerous absentees both teams have in their defensive ends.
That is why attacks should prevail on defences and that is why odds of 1.70 for Over 2.5 goals appeal.
Roma v Napoli | Saturday 19:45| BT Sport
The attack should also prevail in the match between Roma and Napoli.
The Partenopei are top of the table and they do know only one style of play, that is attacking and dictating possession since the first minute.
Roma is proving to be ready under the new management of Eusebio DI Francesco, but some defensive deficiencies remain. The pair of Juan Jesus and Bruno Peres could be easily exposed by Napoli continuous movements, and I see Napoli scoring with relatively easy here.
Also, the visitors should concede as they often do, and here you must respect Roma’s important offensive talents.
Backing both teams to find the net is a wise option to me.
