OUR man in Italy, Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) looks to continue his hot streak in Serie A with his best picks for Sunday’s matches.
Benevento v Crotone | Sunday 18th February 2018, 14:00
Benevento are continuing their awful Serie A experience, but it is fair to say that the January transfer window has granted them some interesting signings – they have acquired some names that Premier League fans will remember in Sandro and Bacary Sagna. They are both seasoned players, but it makes a big impression that this duo is now playing for the worst team in Serie A
At least Benevento have got more enthusiasm, and they have started with much intensity against Napoli and Roma. Today they should have the same approach and have chances to take some points against opponents Crotone.
Napoli v SPAL | Sunday 18th February 2018, 14:00 | BT Sport
Another match I fancy goals in is Napoli v Spal. The visitors are not in their best period of the season, and should have no chance against Serie A’s best team so far. On top of this, the Partenopei have rotated many players in the Europa League to ensure they’re in good stead to take complete control of this match.
Atalana v Fiorentina | Sunday 18th February 2018, 17:00
Atalanta played a great game against Dortmund, despite losing 3-2 in the injury time. Still, they have proved to be competitive also in European action and this is such a remark for a side who used to compete just above the relegation one.
I think fatigue will have an impact on their Serie A match-up and Fiorentina will benefit from this.The Viola have capacity to score with easiness and that is why I am backing BTTS in this game. Also, you may choose a double chance in their favour to get away from Bergamo with a draw.
AC Milan v Sampdoria | Sunday 18th February 2018, 19:45 | BT Sport
The Rossoneri are clearly another team under Rino Gattuso, and their attack is finding he net with regularity in their Serie A campaign. They have now the possibility to take on Inter,.
I fancy BTTS in this match for the same reasoning I like it in the Atalanta match. AC Milan played a competitive side in Europe League and this could lead to a Sampdoria goal.
Benevento v Crotone – Over 2.5 goals (61/50 MarathonBet)
Napoli v SPAL – Napoli win and Over 2.5 goals (1/2 Ladbrokes)
Atalanta v Fiorentina – Both teams to score (4/5 Ladbrokes)
AC Milan v Sampdoria – Both teams to score (3/4 bet365)
