OUR man in Rome and resident Serie A expert Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) shares his best bets from Sunday's Serie A action.
Atalanta v Torino | Sunday 1st September 2019, 19:45
A very interesting match between Atalanta and Torino is on Sunday evening.
The Bergamaschi are one my favourite teams in Europe, as they play with so much intensity, probably unmatched in the whole Serie A. They are a free-scoring machine, as they’ve been the best attack in 2018/19 Serie A and they started on the same notes last week when they’ve scored three in less than one hour against Spal.
Torino are a more conservative side, but they have so much quality upfront. Plus, they should be fatigued by Europe League action after their defeat against Wolves. That is why they should be vulnerable at the back and we might see a very open match.
Over 2.5 Goals is 4/5 (Marathon).
Cagliari v Inter | Sunday 1st September 2019, 19:45 | Premier Sports
I am very much intrigued by Antonio Conte’s Inter this season, as if I had to pick a potential Serie A winner, I would pick the Nerazzurri, rather than too short odds given for Juventus.
Conte is the perfect manager to turn around a side in just one season, as his records with Juventus and Chelsea have proven in recent years. Also, Inter have changed a lot in terms of players in their transfer window, and they should do much better than the dodgy fourth place reached last season.
Cagliari have done very good things during the summer as well, and I predict a very good season for them. But they will miss some important players for this match, and I reckon they will need some more to time to adapt.
Inter to win (4/6 Marathon) is the most probable outcome.
Lecce v Verona | Sunday 1st September 2019, 19:45
Lecce are another side to watch very close under manager Fabio Liverani.
I will simply require them not to lose against a Verona side, who struggled a lot to qualify for Serie A last season.
Also, I am adding a small Over 1.5 goals combo, given Lecce’s offensive attitude.
Lecce double chance and Over 1.5 Goals is (4/6 Bet365).
