Serie A: Injury-ravaged Partenopei to be opposed


OUR man in Rome and resident Serie A expert Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) shares his best bets from Sunday's Serie A action.

Frosinone v Atalanta | Sunday 20th January 2019, 11:30 | Eleven Sports

Atalanta have started the season slowly, but they are now playing at their full potential, having netted 39 goals in just 19 games so far.

This represent a league record, and if you imagine they have scored one goal more than CR7's Juventus, you can imagine how good their game should be.

I rate them contenders for a Champions League qualification spot, and Frosinone should not represent an obstacle to their run. Last time, this match finished 4-0 for the Bergamaschi and I expect a similar amount of goals here.

Over 2.5 Goals is 4/6 (SkyBet).

Spal v Bologna | Sunday 20th January 2019, 14:00

Spal have a tremendous opportunity to gain a significant margin to Bologna in the battle to avoid relegation.

I rate the visitors probably the worst offensive side of Serie A, and despite both teams having scored the same number of goals (just 15 in 19 games), I see a better potential from Spal, both in terms of roster and management.

I just cannot see Bologna going off with three points from Ferrara, and it is not hard to understand why they have never won away from home this season.

Backing the hosts on a Draw No Bet basis should be safe enough at 18/25 (Marathon).

Napoli v Lazio | Sunday 20th January 2019, 19:30 | Eleven Sports

You cannot imagine a better opportunity to face Napoli at San Paolo than Sunday night.

The Partenopei will play without Kalidou Koulibaly, Allan, Lorenzo Insigne, and Marek Hamsik, who represent the spine of this team. Especially the first two of this list are playing as international superstars, and you cannot find an easy replacement in many teams in the world.

Lazio are not my favourite choice when it comes to face-off: their record against top teams is something ridiculous, but this time they just have too much fortune on their side.

I’ll get them to avoid defeat at the San Paolo at 9/10 (Unibet).
