OUR man in Italy, Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) returns to look at Wednesday's action from the peninsula.
Udinese vs Atalanta | Wednesday 20th January 2021, 14:00 | Premier Sports
I am happy to continue with Atalanta’s hot run in midweek against Udinese.
Since early December, the Bergamaschi have gone into full gear with 7 wins and 3 draws (the latter coming against Juventus, Bologna and Genoa). The departure of Alejandro Gomez seems not to hamper this team, which is scoring an average of almost 3 goals per game and I really can't see them wasting this opportunity.
Plus, Atalanta will face a Udinese probably in their worst period under Luca Gotti. The hosts have recently lost to Sampdoria and Benevento, so I do see the odds for Atalanta being really generous for a simple win.
Atalanta to win (3/4 Betfair).
Juventus vs Napoli | Wednesday 20th January 2021, 20:00 | Premier Sports
A big blockbuster game between Juventus and Napoli for the Italian Super Cup…
Again, we called Juventus deficiencies correctly last week, and Inter managed to win 2-0 a totally dominated match on Sunday night. With the Bianconeri facing similar challenges here, and with some of their missing players still unavailable, I do reckon Napoli won’t lose this match, at least.
Since this is a final, tension could be involved and the two teams could be a little more conservative. What I’m sure of is Juventus to concede again though. Therefore, I’ve found a very interesting angle which will give us full profit if Napoli wins, or draw with at least 2 goals in the game.
