OUR man in Italy, Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) looks to continue his hot streak in Serie A with his best Saturday selections.
Udinese vs Sassuolo | Sunday 17th March 2018, 17:00
Udinese are in a very poor patch of form with four consecutive defeats, and they have basically wasted some excellent results they had between December and January.
When Sassuolo visit they have a great opportunity to return to winning ways, as the Emiliani kept struggling for the whole season. Their scoring capability has been nowhere near what they've achieved in previous seasons, having now the worst Serie A record with just 16 goals in 27 matches.
I am ready to back Udinese’s here, but I’ll be wary and use a conservative approach. Backing the hosts to avoid defeat plus under 3.5 goals in the game seems a valid bet here.
SPAL vs Juventus | Sunday 11th March 2018, 14:00
The Bianconeri have the second best away record in the league, and they're only one point behind Napoli. Moreover, they have turned their form into almost unbeatable and nobody looks capable of stopping them.
In domestic action, they come into this on 12 consecutive wins, with their last draw coming against Inter in early December. In European football Tottenham have seen witnessed Juve’s abilities in just 15 minutes of quality football to knock the English side out.
Because of this they should get a comfortable victory at SPAL. Because of the international break, coach Max Allegri should not rotate his strikers who’re going to find the net with ease.
