OUR man in Rome and resident Serie A expert Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) shares his best bets from Saturday's action in Italy.
Lazio v Cagliari | Saturday 22nd December 2018, 11:30 | Eleven Sports
Lazio should switch to a more offensive system, as recently tested against Atalanta and Sampdoria.
I do expect a more aggressive approach from the Biancocelesti, who could easily score twice here, but they are still lacking some defensive solidity.
Goals seem the safest approach here so take Over 2.5 Goals at 31/50 (Marathon).
Napoli v SPAL | Saturday 22nd December 2018, 14:00
Napoli struggled a lot to get their win against Cagliari, who wasted some good opportunities in the match, and being finally punished by a fantastic late goal scored from a free kick by Arek Milik.
Spal should use a classic approach when small teams come at San Paolo: defence, defence, and defence.
The Partenopei could struggle to score the breaker, but eventually they will find a way to take the whole pot – back Napoli to win and Under 4.5 Goals (8/13 Betway).
Sassuolo v Torino | Saturday 22nd December 2018, 14:00
This is an intriguing match between Sassuolo and Torino. I am really struggling to find a winner on this fixture, and I prefer to side with goals between the two.
Sassuolo have a fantastic average of two goals per-game scored on their ground (fourth in the whole Serie A), while also conceding 14 in eight matches.
On the other hand, Torino are scoreless in their last two travels, but have found the net with regularity in their previous efforts.
Both Teams To Score is 10/11 (Bet365).
