OUR man in Rome and resident Serie A expert Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) shares his best bets from Sunday’s action.
Atalanta v Sampdoria | Sunday 7th October 2018, 14:00
Will Atalanta finally be able to win a home match in Serie A?
I expect so, as their last victory in the league has been in August against Frosinone. Since then, they could not find the net for three consecutive matches and when you have Papu Gomez, Emiliano Rigoni and Josip Ilicic up-front is something very odd.
I just cannot see this awful form going on again, and I am happy to back them winning against Sampdoria.
Atalanta to win and Under 4.5 Goals (19/20 Ladbrokes) is the call.
Lazio v Fiorentina | Sunday 7th October 2018, 14:00
Both teams could score in a very interesting game at the Olimpico.
Lazio will suffer from fatigue, having played with almost their best team against Frankfurt in Europe League. That’s why I consider an away goal very probable.
On the other hand, the Biancocelesti are always a menace in front of goals, and despite Sergej Milinkovic Savic not playing at the top of his career, I fancy them to score at least once.
Both Teams To Score (8/11 Betfair) is the bet.
Milan v Chievo | Sunday 7th October 2018, 14:00 | Eleven Sports
Milan should have no problem seeing off Chievo at San Siro.
We backed the Flying Donkeys to go down in Serie B and the bet seems be paying dividends, as they still have to win a single game in Serie A.
They won’t start from Milan, who still have a dodgy defence (they’ve conceded in every Serie A match so far), but whose offensive quality is on another level.
Milan to win and Over 2.5 Goals (4/5 Ladbrokes) should give us a good run.
Napoli v Sassuolo | Sunday 7th October 2018, 17:00 | Eleven Sports
No doubt this will be the most entertaining match of the day.
Two offensive mentality meet after Napoli’s triumph against Liverpool and I expect the visitors to be very dangerous at the San Paolo.
No wonder Napoli should win this game, but I consider a goal from Sassuolo very likely.
Therefore, Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams To Score (23/20 Coral) has a great chance.
