On Wednesday, 28th of February as part of the 21st round of Italian Serie A, Inter will host Atalanta on its home field. The Nerazzurri confidently lead the league table with a 9-point lead over the nearest opponent, whilst Bergamo players are battling for a top-four finish. Predicted lineups Inter:Audero; Bisseck, De Vrij, Bastoni; Dumfries, Frattesi, Barella, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Sanchez, Martinez.Atalanta:Carnesecchi; Scalvini, Djimsiti, Kolasinac; Zappacosta, De Roon, Ederson, Ruggeri; Koopmeiners; Lookman, De Ketelaere. Stadium The match will take place in Milan at Giuseppe Meazza Stadium. Inter This season Inter have proven themselves to be Italy's finest team and are confidently moving towards yet another Scudetto. At present, the Lombardy side tops the league table, holding a game in hand and a 9-point advantage over their closest pursuer. The Nerazzurri have only experienced defeat once since the start of the campaign, and even that was back in September. Over the winter, the hosts have hit top form, winning their last 7 games across all competitions and securing an emphatic 4-0 victory over Lecce last weekend. Lautaro Martinez netted his 24th and 25th goals of the current campaign, with Davide Frattesi and Stefan de Vrij also getting on the scoresheet. Significantly, the Milan side not only leads by a considerable margin but has also scored the most goals (61) in Serie A whilst allowing fewer goals than any other team, conceding only 12. Simone Inzaghi's men also deservedly won their first round of 16 Champions League home fixture against Atletico Madrid (1:0). Atalanta Striving for Champions League participation, Atalanta currently sit 5th in Serie A and are only 2 points off the top four, with a game in hand. Gasperini's side have shown considerable progress in recent weeks, as evidenced by their current 8-match unbeaten run in the league (6 wins, 2 draws). Last weekend, after a run of 5 consecutive victories, the Stripes managed to take a point in Milan (1:1), with Teun Koopmeiners converting a controversial penalty at the end of the match. However, the team's performances on the road have been less than stellar. Bergamo players have only managed four wins, three draws and five losses from their 12 away matches in Serie A. Having secured a place in the Italian Cup semi-finals, Atalanta will also participate in the Europa League last 16, where they will meet Sporting. Head-to-head encounters "La Dea" has struggled against Inter. The visitors have not won any of their last nine meetings with the Nerazzurri at San Siro since their triumph in March 2014 (1:2). Prediction for the match "Inter" vs "Atalanta" Inter has gathered a phenomenal pace over the winter and is grinding down opponents one after another. However, Atalanta's strong position in the league in terms of motivation plays in their favour. Unlike Milan, "La Dea" can't afford to slip due to the high density around the Champions League zone. Inter has not won any of their last eight head-to-head matches by more than a goal difference this trend is set to continue (handicap visitors 1.5). Total prediction In their last five Serie A meetings, these teams have averaged 3.4 goals per game. Both sides boast a star-studded attacking line, so we have no hesitation in placing a TO (total over) 2.5 bet. Corner prediction Both sides advocate an exclusively attacking style of football and use their flanks extensively when launching attacks. Therefore, we confidently back a TO (total over) 9.5 on the total number of corners. Yellow card prediction In the first round, these teams collectively received five bookings it promises to be a heated contest at San Siro, so we back a TO (total over) 4.5 on total yellow cards. Score prediction I predict a final score of 2:2.

On Wednesday, 28th February, as part of the 21st round of Italian Serie A, Sassuolo will host Napoli on their home field. Whilst the hosts are fighting for survival and occupy only the 17th position in the league table, the Neapolitans are nestled at the 9th spot and urgently need points to make it to the European competition zone. Predictive Line-ups Sassuolo:Consigli; Toljan, Tressoldi, Ferrari, Doig; Henrique, Boloca; Castillejo, Thorstvedt, Lauriente; Pinamonti.Napoli:Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Jesus, Olivera; Anguissa, Lobotka, Zielinski; Politano, Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia. Stadium The clash is set to take place in Reggio Emilia at the Mapei Stadium Citta del Tricolore. Sassuolo This season, Sassuolo finds itself in serious jeopardy: currently, the team holds the 17th place in the Serie A standings with a game in hand and an equal number of points as Verona, ranking below them. In recent weeks, the Neroverdi have shown unsatisfactory results, winning only one in the last 12 matches, drawing twice, and conceding nine times. A draw against Torino (1:1) marked the beginning of a series of defeats: first, Sassuolo surrendered to Atalanta (3:0), and last weekend they lost to Empoli (2:3), a direct contender for survival. This result became the final nail in the coffin for Alessio Dionisi, who was sacked from Sassuolo after two and a half years as a head coach. Napoli The reigning Italian champions are also in a less than desirable state for the ongoing campaign. Having bowed out of the race for the strong four, the Partenopei currently hold only 9th place in the overall Serie A standings, trailing the six by four points. Two coaching resignations have occurred in the team this season: after a draw with Genoa (1:1), Walter Mazzarri was sacked, having replaced Rudi Garcia on this path. Under the guidance of Slovak Francesco Calzona, the Southerners first drew with Barcelona in the first match of the 1/8 final of the Champions League (1:1), and then last weekend they played a 1:1 draw with sinking Cagliari: Victor Osimhen's goal on the 65th minute was set aside by Zito Luvumbo's accurate shot in the 96th minute. Nevertheless, the light blues perform quite well away from home: they have secured 19 points in 13 outings (fourth-best in the division), scored 17 goals, and conceded 13. Head-to-Head Records The visitors have won all four of the last encounters with Sassuolo with an aggregate score of 14:1, including a home victory (2:0) in the first round. Match Forecast for Sassuolo vs Napoli Both teams are not in the best of shapes and may view the midweek clash as a golden opportunity to take three valuable points. However, Napoli are expected to be the favourites to win, considering the current state of the Neroverdi: the hosts have not won in the last five matches with four losses. The return of Osimhen should boost the Partenopei, hence my bet is a victory for the light blues. Total Forecast Sassuolo concedes an average of two goals per match, whereas Napoli hasn't scored more than one goal in a game since the beginning of February. This trend is bound to break, so my bet is on an individual total for the favourite over 1.5 goals. Corner Forecast Both sides harbour an exceedingly attacking style of football and make heavy use of the flanks in developing attacks. Confidently placing a probe bet on the total corner over 9.5. Yellow Cards Forecast Neither team is known for excessive roughness on the field (only one yellow card was shown in the first round), so my bet is on total warnings under 3.5. Score Forecast My prediction for the exact score is a 1:3 win in favour of Napoli.

Today as part of the 26th round of the Italian Serie A, Fiorentina will host Lazio on their home turf. A week ago, the "violets" divided the points with the relegation-haunted Empoli, whereas the Biancocelesti managed to achieve a victory away from home against mid-table dwellers Torino. Fiorentina Considered a serious contender for a European competition berth this season, Fiorentina currently holds the 8th position in Serie A, falling 3 points short of the top six. The Tuscan side has significantly slowed down recently: in the last seven rounds, they have won only once, drawn twice, and lost four times. Following their defeat from Bologna (2:0), the whites and violets last weekend came to a tie 1:1 with a sinking Empoli. Under the guidance of Vincenzo Italiano, they took the lead thanks to a goal from Lucas Beltran. Still, M'Baye Niang restored parity on the scoreboard with a penalty in the second half. In general, the hosts' home performances are average: they have collected 23 points from 12 home games (only the seventh-best in the division), scored 22 goals, and conceded 12. Qualifying for the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia, Fiorentina also got into the round of 16 in the Conference League, set to face a tough challenge in the duel with Maccabi Haifa. The team's coaching staff laments over the absences of Dodo and Castrovilli, as well as the backup goalkeeper Kristensen. Koffi Djidji, a centre-back, will also likely miss the fixture. The attacking duo will be constituted by Beltran (6 goals) and this winter's recruit Belotti (1 goal in 4 matches). Faraoni (Verona) also joined the "violets" during the winter transfer window as a defender. Several players left Florence this winter, including winger Brekalo (Hajduk Split) and defender Yerry Mina (Cagliari). Lazio Since the last season, Lazio has somewhat slowed down, and currently, the Eagles are 7th in Serie A, being 2 points behind the upcoming opponent. Having beaten Bologna at home last weekend (1:2), the charges of Maurizio Sarri got an advantage over Torino (0:2) last week accurate shots from Matteo Guendouzi and Danilo Cataldi settled everything in the second half. Securing a win in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Bayern Munich (1:0), in the Coppa Italia semi-finals, they will have to face Juventus. It is paramount to note that Lazio performs commendably in away games: in 13 matches, they gathered 19 points (the fifth-best tally in the division), scored 18 goals, and let in 17. Patrick (defender) and Rovella (midfielder) continue to be absent in the visitors' squad. Additionally, key winger Dejan Kulusevski is in the infirmary recovering. Recently, Ciro Immobile scored his 200th goal for Lazio in all competitions since moving from Sevilla in the summer of 2016 and took the lead in the race for the Capocannoniere title he will certainly start on Monday. Assisting him on the flanks will be Brazilian winger Felipe Anderson (3 goals and 6 assists), and experienced Pedro is also available. Luis Alberto commands the midfield for the Romans, while Matias Vecino fortifies the defensive midfield position. This winter, the team underwent little changes: only rarely-used midfielder Savic was loaned out to Rennes. Head-to-head The Biancocelesti have carried off victories in 19 out of the past 28 matches against Lazio, including a 0:4 triumph at the Artemio Franchi last season. The first leg concluded in a minimal victory for the Eagles (1:0). Match prediction FiorentinaLazio Despite ambivalent recent performances, Fiorentina, in case of success, could overtake Lazio in the table and edge close to the European competition zone. However, achieving this will be extremely challenging: the Eagles have triumphed thrice in their last four fixtures in all competitions and are practically devoid of personnel issues. My prediction is for Lazio to win or draw (as has happened in all five previous H2H encounters).

Today within the 26th round of the Italian Serie A, Roma will host Torino. The Giallorossi achieved success on the continental arena last Thursday, while the Bulls couldn't even hold a draw at home against Lazio.. Roma As they strive for a Champions League spot, Roma currently sit 6th in Serie A, with a game in hand and trailing the 4th place by 4 points. The Roman club is still far off the leaders, but their form has notably improved since the appointment of Daniele De Rossi in January. In particular, the Giallorossi have won 4 of their last 5 league matches, losing only once at home to the leading Inter (4-2). Just last weekend, they responded with a triumph over Frosinone (0:3), and this week Roma had to work hard to overcome Feyenoord in the Europa League playoffs (1:1 away and 1:1 at home, advancing on penalties). Santiago Jimenez scored in the very beginning, but soon the Romans quickly equalised thanks to a goal from Lorenzo Pellegrini, after which the home goalkeeper, Mile Svilar, saved penalties from David Hanko and Alireza Jahanbakhsh. Roma have unsurprisingly transformed their Olimpico into a real fortress, accumulating 27 out of 41 Serie A points at home. The Roman side still remains without forward Tammy Abraham who has been injured for several months now. Adding to this is the uncertainty over the participation of experienced Chris Smalling. Recent Africa Cup of Nations champion with the Ivory Coast, defender Ndika, played for the Italian squad last week. Since De Rossi's arrival, team captain Pellegrini transformed, scoring 4 goals and providing 3 assists in his last 7 matches. We are likely to see Lukaku (9 goals) and Dybala (8 goals and 6 assists) leading the lines. Among the new acquisitions this winter are left-back Angelino (Galatasaray), defender Dean Huysen (Juventus), and Tommaso Baldanzi (Empoli). Torino Torino currently sits 10th in Serie A, 5 points behind the 6th spot. The Piedmont side still harbours hopes of reaching the European spots by the end of the season. However, last week Ivan Juric's charges suffered a loss at home against direct competitors - Lazio, with a 2:0 scoreline. Thus, the Bulls ended their positive streak of 6 undefeated matches in the championship (3 wins and 3 draws). Mario Hila was sent off in the late second-half, but the result was already decided: precision strikes from Matteo Guendouzi and Danilo Cataldi made all the difference. It's noteworthy that Torino's away performance is somewhat weaker than at home: In 12 matches, they've collected just 13 points, scored 9 goals, and conceded 14. Having exited the Coppa Italia, the visitors can now solely focus on their domestic campaign. The Turin side remains without key defenders Buongiorno, Rodriguez, and Schurr, as well as centre-back Voevod, who haven't fully recovered from health concerns. Going forward, Duvan Zapata (7 goals and 3 assists) plays a pivotal role and is slated to start on Monday. Defender Lovato (Salernitana) and Masina (Udinese) joined the club this winter and will solidify the defence. On the other hand, attacking duo Okerere (Cremonese) and Kabić (Red Star Belgrade) I still not settled in Turin and are unlikely to start. Head-to-head Torino hasn't been victorious in any of the last five clashes with Roma. The first-leg match ended in a 1-1 draw. Prediction for the match Roma - Torino Having had an emotional evening on Thursday in the Europa League tie against Feyenoord, Roma could possibly be emotionally drained come Monday evening. Torino, having had the whole week to prepare for their trip to the Olimpico, still harbour hopes of a top-six finish. Considering this, I'll risk betting on a guest handicap 2 (+1).

On Sunday, the 25th of February, as part of the 26th round of the Italian Serie A, Cagliari will host Napoli on their home pitch. While Francesco Calzone's charges managed to salvage a draw in the opening 1/8 final of the Champions League against Barcelona, the Islanders are lingered in the relegation zone, bereft of any wins for five sequential matches. Predicted Line-ups Cagliari:Scuffet; Zappa, Mina, Dossena, Augello; Nandez, Makoumbou, Jankto, Luvumbo; Gaetano; Lapadula.Napoli:Meret; Mazzocchi, Rrahmani, Jesus, Rui; Anguissa, Lobotka, Traore; Politano, Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia. Stadium The clash will play out in Cagliari at the Unipol Domus stadium. Cagliari Cagliari, currently lodged in dire straits after their return to the elite division, is presently in the 19th place in Serie A, straggling in arrears of the critically important 17th spot by one point. Claudio Ranieri's squad is crystallised in stagnation, having only won one out of the last 10 matches, thrice settling for draw and succumbing 6 times. Following four consecutive losses against Frosinone, Torino, Roma, and Lazio, Cagliari snatched a draw away against direct rivals for survival Udinese (1:1), with the loaned Napoli player Gianluca Gaetano distinguishing himself with a goal. The upcoming March matches against Empoli and Salernitana could potentially delineate the fate of the tricoloured squad, although, after an exemplary series of four wins and two draws at home, the hosts lost their last two matches on Sardinian land. Napoli One of the season's biggest disappointments in Italy Napoli is utterly trashing the current campaign. The reigning national champions have practically forfeited the chance of breaking through into the Champions League quarterfinal (trailing the fourth-placed Bologna by 13 points), but can still harbour hopes for a spot in the following season's European cup (trailing the sixth place by 5 points). Furthermore, the Southerners have emerged triumphant from just 2 of the last 8 matches, managing to scramble for a draw thrice and capitulating thrice. After a loss to Milan (1:0), the white and blues tied 1:1 with Genoa at home last weekend. This led to the sacking of the head coach Walter Mazzarri, who was inducted midway through the season. Under the leadership of Francesco Calzone, Napoli held Barcelona to a draw in the first match of the Champions League 1/8 finals (1:1): Victor Osimhen returned the favour in the second-half for Robert Lewandowski's goal. It is noteworthy that the Azzurri have remained barren across five away matches before their expedition to Sardinia a catastrophe for a club of this calibre. Napoli's line-up omits captain Di Lorenzo, who was booked with a yellow card last round. Head to Head Cagliari has only bested Napoli in one of the last 25 matches, losing 17 times. Additionally, the first-round encounter ended in a climactic 2:1 victory for the white and blues. Match Forecast: Cagliari vs Napoli The draw against Barcelona should instil some confidence in the visiting squad, and the managerial shuffle should invigorate the players. The Neapolitans urgently need to accumulate points, or else they run the risk of forfeiting a spot in the European Cup next season. Cagliari has been running a temperature lately, remaining starved of victories throughout the latest five rounds. My forecast a Napoli victory. Total Forecast With Osimhen back in action, Napoli should regain much-needed firepower upfront; plus, the options of Kvaratskhelia, Simeone, Politano, and Raspadori are still available. I place my stakes on Napoli's individual total over 1.5 goals. Corners Forecast Napoli averages 6.2 corners per game, and against a compactly defending Cagliari, attacking from the flanks should be substantial. I am waiting for at least five corners delivered by the visiting squad. Booking Forecast Cagliari racks up merely 1.9 yellow cards per game, Napoli marginally more than 2. I confidently bet on the total bookings under 3.5. Score Forecast I place my wager on the exact score 1:2 in the favour of Napoli.

Today as part of the 26th tour of the Italian Serie A, Lecce will host Inter on their turf. While the Nerazzurri edge ever closer to the Scudetto, the hosts have lost five out of their last six matches and are only four points ahead of the relegation zone. Lecce Lecce sit 13th in the Serie A table, a mere four points clear of the relegation zone. The team from Apulia had a solid first half of the season, but their performance has fallen sharply recently: the hosts have lost 7 out of their last 9 games, managing a single victory, and not managing to score in eight of them! After an unexpected victory over Fiorentina (3-2), the red-yellows consecutively succumbed to Bologna (4:0) and Torino (2:0)second-half goals were scored by Bellanova and Duvan Zapata. After Lecce's final February encounter with Inter, the team will face a crucial trio of matches against Frosinone, Verona, and Salernitana, which could determine their survival in the top-flight division. Moreover, it should be noted that the hosts perform quite admirably on their home ground, collecting 19 points from 12 home fixtures, scoring 15 goals and conceding 17. Lecce's key winger Banda (2 goals and 4 assists) is still not fully recovered from his injury. The same goes for defender Dermaku and goalie Brankolini, while Pongracic and Dorgu are suspended. Right back Zhandri, who was previously serving a suspension, is available to play this Sunday. During the January transfer window, the club parted ways with several bench players, whereas young Argentine striker Pierotti (Coln) moved to Italy, although he is yet to make his debut for his new club. Inter Inter is making a fabulous impression this season and is firmly progressing towards the Scudetto. Currently, the team from Lombardy is leading Serie A, one game in hand and a 9-point lead over closest pursuers. Accumulating a whopping 63 points, the Milan team has only had a better score at this stage of the campaign in 2007. Since the start of the championship, the Nerazzurri only lost once, at the end of September. During the winter, the visitors have been in excellent form, winning their last six matches, defeating Verona (2:1), Monza (1:5), Fiorentina (0:1), Juventus (1:0), Roma (2:4), and Salernitana just last weekend (4:0). Inter, who won the Italian Super Cup at the end of January, overcame Madrid's Atletico in the first round of the Champions League last week (1:0) thanks to a late strike from Marco Arnautovic. By scoring in 19 consecutive Serie A away fixtures, Simone Inzaghi's protgs could for the first time in the club's history reach the 20th mark. Inter's squad remains without centre-back Acherbi, experienced right-back Cuadrado, and midfielder Sensiall injured. Marcus Thuram has joined them in the infirmary, having sustained an injury in the Champions League. Nerazzurri boast the Serie A's best attack and defence, with forward Lautaro Martinez impressively topping the scoring charts (20 goals). Hakan alhanoğlu (9 goals and 3 assists) masterfully orchestrates the team's midfield, ably aided by Barella and Mkhitaryan. During the winter transfer window, winger Buekenen (Brugge) joined the Lombards, while reserves Agoume (Sevilla) and Salsedo (Lecce) moved on loan. Head-to-Head In their last 15 encounters with Inter, the Salentini managed just one victory, losing 11 times. The first-leg duel ended with a 2:0 victory for the Milanese. Match prediction: Lecce - Inter The Via del Mare is a stronghold against any visiting team. However, Lecce is deep in crisis, suffering five losses in their last six rounds. The visitors, on the other hand, are full steam ahead towards the coveted Scudetto, leaving no stone unturned. Inzaghi's deep bench allows him to seamlessly rotate the squad amid a tough schedule; thus, we confidently anticipate a Nerazzurri triumph.

On Sunday, 25th February, within the framework of the 26th round of the Italian Serie A, Juventus will host Frosinone on their ground. The Turin club has managed to amass only two points in the last four matches of the championship while the visitors lost their third consecutive match last week, conceding goals from all and sundry. Juventus Long-time rivals with Inter for the Scudetto, Juventus is experiencing a serious dip, which has all but nullified the bianconeri's hopes for the title. The 'Old Lady' still holds the 2nd position in Serie A, but, with one game in hand, they're lagging 9 points behind the leading nerazzurri. They also have a nine-point buffer from the fifth-placed team, essentially guaranteeing them a Champions League ticket. That said, the hosts have not won any of their last 4 Serie A matches (2 draws and 2 losses). After defeats to Inter (1:0) and Udinese (0:1), the zebras last weekend drew with Verona (2:2): Dusan Vlahovic converted a penalty and Adrien Rabiot celebrated his 199th match for the club with a goal. In the immediate future, the Turin club will face clashes with Napoli, Atalanta and Lazio in the domestic cup, so Allegri's charges need urgently to restore their reputation. Juventus' squad still lacks defender De Sciglio, Perin and Moise Kean. This is reinforced by the injury of key defender Danilo; not to mention long-term suspensions of midfielders Pogba and Fagioli. Dusan Vlahovic (13 goals and 3 assists) returned to the pitch last weekend after a minor injury and scored instantly the Serb is sure to lead the line again this time. This winter, the 'old lady' signed defender Thiago Djalo (Lille) and promising attacking midfielder Carlos Alcaraz (Southampton), but both players are currently on the bench. Frosinone Since returning to Serie A, Frosinone has logically been battling to maintain its elite status. At the moment, the team holds the 15th position in the league table and is 3 points from the relegation zone. In recent weeks, the canaries have sharply decelerated: in the last 12 rounds, they've only won against sinking Cagliari (3:1), drew twice and lost 9 times. Thus, Frosinone suffered 3 consecutive losses: from Milan (2:3), Fiorentina (5:1) and Roma last weekend (0:3). Since the beginning of December, the yellow-blue team has lost the most matches in the Italian championship (nine, along with Salernitana) and conceded the most goals (31). Fans will like the following fact even less: Frosinone is the worst Serie A team in terms of performances away from home (only 3 points gained in 12 matches). Frosinone's line-up this weekend is still weakened by personnel losses: defenders Bonifazi, Marchizza and Oyono, new signing Gedjmis, as well as Kalaj, Lusuardi (defenders) and Kuni (forward) are injured. Key defender Romagnoli has returned from suspension and midfielder Barrenechea and forward Sule (10 goals and 2 assists), loaned from Juventus, will be responsible for creativity in attack. Luca Garritano could also enter the field, as could the recovered Nadir Zortea. During the January transfer window, the canaries strengthened with defenders Bonifazi (Bologna) and Valeri (Cremonese), along with forward Seko (Torino). Head-to-Head Frosinone not only lost the last five direct encounters with Juve but also all nine of the most recent matches against the Serie A top two. The first-round duel ended with a 1:2 victory for the Turin outfit. Prediction for the match Juventus - Frosinone Failing to win in the last 4 rounds, Juventus craves to redeem itself in front of its fans. There's hardly a better way to do this than with Frosinone's visit to Turin. The "Canaries" are in crisis and have lost three matches in a row, and their away form is downright horrid. I expect no sensation here and back a convincing victory for the favourite with -1,5 handicap.

On Friday, 23rd February, as part of the 26th round of Italian Serie A, Bologna will host Verona on their home ground. The fourth consecutive victory for Thiago Motta's charges last weekend keeps their Champions League dream alive, while the Mastiffs desperately need all three points in their survival battle. Expected Lineups Bologna:Skorupski; Posch, Beukema, Lucumi, Kristiansen; El Azzouzi, Ferguson, Freuler; Orsolini, Zirkzee, Saelemaekers.Verona:Montipo; Tchatchoua, Magnani, Dawidowicz, Cabal; Duda, Daniel Silva, Suslov; Folorunsho, Noslin, Lazovic. Stadium The duel will take place in Bologna at Renato Dall'Ara stadium. Bologna This season under the stewardship of Thiago Motta, Bologna has become a tough nut to crack in Italian football. The team currently occupies 5th place in Serie A and, with 1 game in hand, has amassed as many points as fourth-place Atalanta thus the hosts can aspire for Champions League participation next autumn. After 4 rounds without victory, the Rossoblu resumed their winning march, prevailing in the last four encounters: Motta's charges won against Sassuolo (4:2), Lecce (4:0), Fiorentina (2:0) and Lazio last weekend (1:2) with El-Azzouzi and Zirkzee on the scoresheet. It's important to note that Bologna is the absolute best Serie A team this campaign when playing at home: gaining 32 points in 13 round, scoring 24 goals, and conceding 7. Verona Similar to last season, Verona is fighting to avoid relegation from Serie A, and currently sits in 18th place in the standings with 1 game in hand and the same points tally as Sassuolo, who are above. Since the end of August, Marco Baroni's wards have achieved only 2 victories against their basement rivals (Cagliari and Empoli). Unable to win in the last five rounds (3 draws and 2 losses), the Mastiffs, meanwhile, showed character: after a loss to Napoli (2:1), Verona shared points in Monza (0:0) and drew with Juventus last weekend (2:2) Folorunsho and Noslin were the scorers. The Yellow-Whites have a disappointing away record this campaign: garnering only 6 points in 13 rounds, with 9 goals scored and 18 conceded. Head-To-Head In the first leg, Bologna drew 0:0 in Verona, however, at the end of October, the Rossoblu defeated the Mastiffs 2:0 in the Italian Cup. Match Prediction Bologna vs Verona Bologna is thirsty to extend their winning streak to five matches, and the hosts have every chance to do so they face crisis-ridden Verona, who only have one victory to their name in 2024. Moreover, the Rossoblu is the absolute best Serie A team in home games this season. My prediction is a triumph for the favourites. Match Goals Prediction Bologna scores almost 2 goals per home game while conceding 0.5. It is unlikely that the Yellow-Whites will shine in attack, I am placing my bet on "both teams score: no". Corners Prediction Bologna will hold the initiative and attack more, spurred by the race for the Champions League zone. I am betting on the favourites to win the corner count with a handicap of -1.5. Yellow Cards Prediction Both teams earn more than 2 yellow cards per game on average throughout the season I'm betting on the total warnings over 3.5. Score Prediction I am betting on the exact score to be in Bologna's favour; 2:0.

On Sunday, 18th February, as part of the 25th round of the Italian Serie A, "Monza" will host "Milan" on their home turf. Since making it into the elite division, the hosts haven't managed to score a single point against the "Rossoneri", who last week practically secured their progression into the 1/8 finals of the Europa League. Projected Line-ups "Monza":Di Gregorio; Izzo, Mari, Caldirola; Birindelli, Gagliardini, Pessina, Zerbin; Mota, Colpani; Colombo. "Milan":Maignan; Florenzi, Gabbia, Thiaw, Hernandez; Adli, Reijnders; Okafor, Loftus-Cheek, Leao; Jovic. "Monza" Positioned in the lower half of the league table, "Monza" holds the 11th spot in Serie A and is gearing up for the final stretch of the season without the threat of relegation. This is reflected in the team's recent results: the red-whites have won only 2 out of their last 9 matches, drawn thrice and lost 4 times. After a narrow victory over "Sassuolo" (1-0), they were forced to accept draws in matches against "Udinese" (0:0) and "Verona" (0:0) - two clubs in a battle for survival. No other team from the bottom half of the Serie A table has let in as few goals this campaign as "Monza" (28). In fact, even "Milan" has only conceded one goal less. "Monza" has to come to terms with the injury of key forward Caprari as well as Vignato being sidelined. "Milan" Even though "Milan" has fallen out of the championship title race, the club has firmly established itself within the top four, giving them the right to participate in the Champions League. The Lombards are ranked 3rd in Serie A, 10 points clear of the 5th place and only 2 short of a second-place "Juventus". Their current unbeaten streak of 9 matches in the championship (7 wins and 2 draws) attests to the excellent form "Rossoneri" has amassed. After drawing at home against "Bologna" 2:2, they overcame "Frosinone" (3:2) and "Napoli" (1:0) last weekend. This week, "Milan" easily defeated "Rennes" in the first playoff match of the Europa League (3:0), thanks to goals from Rafael Leao and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. The team sheet is still missing defenders Calabria and Tomori, as well as Kalulu and Pobega - all of them injured. Head-to-Head In the first leg, the "Rossoneri" clinched victory with a score of 3:0 - their third in three recent head-to-head matches with their Sunday opponent. Match Prediction: "Monza" - "Milan" "Monza" no longer has any real tournament motivation and is playing out the championship for the sheer sake of it. Granted, the "Rossoneri" are more exhausted - but with a deep bench and their leaders back in action, Pioli can rotate his squad without trauma. Coming from a six-match unbeaten run in all tournaments, the visitors are likely to scoop all three points tonight. Total Goals Prediction "Monza" has managed just two goals in their last five rounds. Therefore, a safe bet would be to place the individual total for the home side under 1 goal. Corner Kicks Prediction "Milan" surpasses its opponent in class and will be attacking more - accordingly; the visitors should claim superiority in corners. Yellow Cards Prediction "Monza" will have to foul more frequently in order to hold back the star-studded "Rossoneri" attack (victory by yellow cards). Score Prediction My bet is on an exact score of 0:2 in favour of "Milan".

On Sunday, 18th of February, the 25th round of Italian Serie A will bring a host match for "Empoli", who are facing "Fiorentina". As of February, the hosts are getting the hang of it, having avoided defeat for four consecutive league matches. On the contrary, "Viola" has clinched victory in only one out of the last six encounters across all tournaments. Predicted Line-ups "Empoli":Caprile; Ismajli, Walukiewicz, Luperto; Gyasi, Grassi, Maleh, Cacace; Zurkowski, Cambiaghi; Cerri."Fiorentina":Terracciano; Faraoni, Martinez Quarta, Ranieri, Biraghi; Duncan, Arthur; Gonzalez, Beltran, Sottil; Belotti. "Empoli" This season, "Empoli" is struggling, currently holding the 16th spot in Serie A, with a slim 2-point margin above the drop zone. After a streak of disappointing results, the incumbent manager Aurelio Andreazzoli was dismissed in mid-January. These changes pay off as the team hasn't lost in the last 4 matches (2 wins and 2 draws), propelling them out of the danger zone. Last weekend, Davide Nicola's side triumphed over "Salernitana" with a 1:3 score. At the home ground, Stadio Castellani, "Azzurri" has acquired a meagre total of nine points and has shown the lowest home goal tally, netting only eight times (while conceding 17). "Fiorentina" "Fiorentina", aiming for a European spot this season, currently sits at the 9th position in the Serie A leaderboard, one unit short of the 6th place. Sadly, their form in early 2024 has been disappointing with 4 rounds without a win (1 draw and 3 losses). Last weekend, they routed "Frosinone" with a 5:1 score. This week, the "Violas" suffered another loss from "Bologna" with a score of 2:0. On a positive note, the white-purple strokes are relatively solid on the road, amassing 14 points from 12 away games (seventh in the league), scoring 14 and conceding 16. In addition to reaching the semifinals of the Coppa Italia, "Fiorentina" advanced to the 1/8 finals of the Europa League. Direct Encounters "Empoli" has only lost one of the last six matches against "Fiorentina", which includes a 0:2 win in the first round of this season in October. Match Prediction for "Empoli" vs "Fiorentina" Despite lagging 16 points behind their upcoming adversaries, I reckon that "Empoli" could persistently fight for points this weekend. The hosts sorely lack a potent striker, although "Viola" themselves aren't in their prime currently. Why not confirm the season's second triumph over "Violas" now? My bet would be at least a draw for the home side. Over/Under Goals Prediction In their last five games, "Fiorentina" managed to scrape only three goals and struggles to create in offense throughout February. I am placing my bet below the TO of 1.5 goals for the visitors. Corner Kicks Prediction One thing's for certain: "Violas" will snatch possession and try to impose their own style upon the rival. I favour Vincenzo Italiano's charges to outscore in corners. Yellow Card Prediction Both teams received an average of two cautions per game this season. Thus, I confidently opt for TU of 4.5 yellow cards in total. Score Prediction My bet is on a precise score of 1:0 in favour of "Empoli".

On Sunday, the 18th of February, as part of the 25th round of the Italian Serie A, Lazio will play host to Bologna. Last week, the biancocelesti pulled off a real sensation, defeating Bayern Munich (1:0) in the first 1/8 final match of the Champions League, while the rossoblu also clinched a victory on Wednesday moving two points ahead of the hosts in the league table. Predicted Line-ups Lazio:Provedel; Lazzari, Patric, Gila, Marusic; Guendouzi, Cataldi, Alberto; Isaksen, Immobile, Anderson. Bologna:Skorupski; Posch, Beukema, Calafiori, Kristiansen; Aebischer; Orsolini, Ferguson, Fabbian, Saelemaekers; Zirkzee. Lazio Lazio, which finished second place in Serie A last season, is not having as successful a run this campaign, but remains hopeful for a Champions League qualification. Currently, the biancocelesti rank seventh in the league table, trailing the top four clubs by five points. Following a five-match unbeaten streak (four wins and a draw), Maurizio Sarri's charges succumbed to Atalanta (3:1). However, they quickly redeemed themselves before their fans last weekend by defeating struggling Cagliari 3:1. This week, Lazio delivered a surprise, overcoming Bayern Munich in the first 1/8 match of the Champions League (1:0): Dayot Upamecano was shown a red card and conceded a penalty kick successfully converted by Ciro Immobile. Thus, the capital club achieved its first ever streak of three consecutive home victories in the Champions League without conceding a goal. In the national championship, Lazio also performs successfully at the Olimpico: just two losses in 11 Serie A matches. Bologna Since the appointment of Thiago Motta as head coach last season, Bologna has been aiming to establish itself among the top teams of Italy. The rossoblu's results are very promising: the visitors currently sit fifth in Serie A and have an equal number of points with Atalanta, which sits fourth implying a Champions League qualification is closer than ever. After a four-match winless run (2 draws and 2 losses), in the last three matches Bologna has won against Sassuolo (4:2), Lecce (4:0) and Fiorentina this week (2:0). However, away from home the team has recorded only one win, seven draws and suffered three losses, suggesting that Bologna performs much less confidently on the road. Riccardo Orsolini's ninth goal last Wednesday not only secured the rossoblu's victory but also made him the club's top scorer this season. Previous Encounters Lewis Ferguson scored the only goal immediately after the break in November, which gave Bologna a win on home ground against Lazio. Prediction for the Lazio vs Bologna Match Lazio's mental fatigue following the Champions League could play into the rossoblu's hands. Bologna rarely succeeds away from home, but the team has recently regained form, and previously injured key players have returned to action. I'll take a risk and bet that the visitors will at least avoid defeat this Sunday. Total Goals Prediction In six out of the seven previous head-to-head encounters, at least one team did not manage to score. Lazio have conceded only seven goals on home turf, while they themselves have only netted twelve goals in eleven matches. My prediction is a total of under 2.5 goals. Corner Kicks Prediction Lazio averages more than five corners per match, while visitors average just 3.8. I expect a victory in corner kicks from the Romans. Yellow Cards Prediction Both records show an average of 2.5 yellow cards per match, and considering the stakes, neither side will cool down the heat of the action. I'll bet on a total of over 4.5 bookings. Score Prediction I'm betting on a final score of 0:0.

On Saturday, 17th of February, Napoli will host Genoa in the 25th round of the Italian Serie A. Napoli's recent defeat by Milan left them far behind the top four in the league, while their guests unexpectedly ended an impressive unbeaten streak a week ago. Predicted Lineups Napoli:Gollini; Ostigard, Rrahmani, Natan; Di Lorenzo, Anguissa, Lobotka, Rui; Politano, Simeone, Kvaratskhelia.Genoa:Martinez; De Winter, Bani, Vasquez; Sabelli, Frendrup, Badelj, Malinovskyi, Spence; Gudmundsson; Retegui. Napoli The reigning champions of Italy have not lived up to expectations this season. The team from the south of the Apennines quickly fell out of the race for the Scudetto, and the azure will have to make a considerable effort to secure at least a ticket to the European competitions. Presently, Walter Mazzarri's charges occupy the 9th place in Serie A and, with one game in hand, they are 3 points behind the 6th position. After a series of disappointing results, the "partenopei" showed a slight improvement in their form, going three rounds without defeat (2 victories and 1 draw). This positive trend was interrupted last weekend when Napoli lost to Milan by a score of 1:0. Moreover, the Neapolitans haven't known victory in their last five away games since November, which is the worst record for the club in the past few decades. The hosts will bear in mind the upcoming visit of Barcelona to the Stadio Maradona next week in the Champions League round of 16. Genoa Having returned to the elite division this season, Genoa has shown more than worthy results and stands at a reasonable distance from the relegation zone. The Genoese occupy the 12th position overall in Serie A, holding a comfortable 10-point lead over Verona. Last weekend, Alberto Gilardino's team suffered a heavy defeat from Atalanta (1:4), thus, the "griffins" broke an 8-match unbeaten streak in the championship (3 victories and 5 draws). Genoa has collected 12 points out of the possible 36 away from home, and they have to continue their four-match unbeaten run away from home in Napoli. Having been knocked out of the Italian Cup in early December, the team is now exclusively focused on the championship. Head-to-Head Napoli has not lost any of the last three head-to-head encounters with Genoa in the championship, including a 2:2 draw in the first half of the current season. Prediction for the match Napoli vs Genoa Napoli often stumbles at home this season: the team is only 12th in the overall standing on this indicator and has collected 17 points in 11 home games. Genoa, on the contrary, has proved its worth after being promoted and has a good chance of taking points from Napoli. With the hosts already preparing for the Champions League round of 16 against Barcelona, we bravely bet on Genoa's handicap 1. Prediction for Total Napoli has scored only 2 (!) goals in the last four matches and it can't be said that the finishing let them down too much. My prediction the individual total of the favourites is under 2 goals. Prediction for Corners This is where the hosts will certainly outperform the opponent, namely in the number of corners given. I bet on the victory of the azure in corners -1.5. Prediction for Yellow Cards Genoa collects an average of 2.5 yellow cards per match and arrives in Napoli intending to break the pace of the game as often as possible. I bet that the guests will meet this warning indicator. Prediction for the Score I'm betting on the exact score of 1:1.

On Friday, 16 February, within the framework of the 25th round of the Italian Serie A, Torino will host Lecce at home. Last weekend, the "bulls" missed their chance to beat Sassuolo and get closer to the European zone, while the visitors suffered their 10th defeat in the championship, losing to Bologna with the score 4:0. Projected line-ups Torino:Milinkovic-Savic; Djidji, Lovato, Rodriguez; Bellanova, Ricci, Ilic, Lazaro; Vlasic; Zapata, Sanabria.Lecce:Falcone; Venuti, Pongracic, Baschirotto, Gallo; Kaba, Ramadani, Oudin; Almqvist, Krstovic, Banda. Stadium The match will be held in Turin at the Olimpico Stadium. Torino Torino still remains a contender for a finish in the European zone and ranks 10th in the Serie A standings, having one game in hand and trailing 5 points behind the 6th place. Although Ivan Juric's team does not impress with its play, few of the white-brown opponents find it easy in head-to-head battles. Over the last 10 rounds, the hosts lost only to Fiorentina (1:0), winning four times and drawing five times. After their victory over sinking Cagliari (1:2), the Turin side lost points in the matches against Salernitana (0:0) and Sassuolo (1:1) last weekend. The only home defeat in the current campaign the "bulls" suffered from future champion Milan's Inter, and overall, they have gained 20 points in 11 home matches. Moreover, the hosts conceded only six goals on home soil, which is the best result in the league. Lecce Currently, Lecce ranks 13th in the Serie A table, five points clear of the drop zone. The Apulians will have to make a considerable effort to avoid relegation, especially as their recent form is not very encouraging. Recently, the visitors ended a six-match winless streak (1 draw and 5 defeats) with a home victory over Fiorentina, with a score of 3:2. However, they suffered another setback last weekend: Lecce lost 4:0 away to Bologna. The guests' away performance also forebodes nothing good on Friday: after a December draw with Empoli, they suffered five defeats in a row. Moreover, the visitors gained only five points in 12 away matches, surpassing only Frosinone and Cagliari in this respect. Head-to-head battles The "Maruni" will try to make up for their painful debacle against Torino in the first round with a score of 0:1. Moreover, the "bulls" have come out on top in the three most recent head-to-head duels. Prediction for the match Torino - Lecce Torino rarely stumbles at home and will do its utmost to narrow the gap to the European zone this coming weekend. Little doubt arises about the fact that the hosts surpass their opponent both in experience and in performer selection. Lecce plays dreadfully away from home and has been in a crisis in recent weeks. My prediction the favourites will chalk up a run-of-the-mill victory. Prediction for the total Torino has only conceded 6 goals at home this campaign and is known for their very solid defence. It makes sense to bet on "both to score: no". Prediction for corner kicks The hosts will dominate and attack more, while Lecce will be satisfied with a draw from a tournament point of view. I expect the "bulls" to win in terms of corner kicks. Prediction for yellow cards Both teams earn 2.5 yellow cards per match, so confidently place your bet on the total number of cautions being over 3.5. Prediction for the score I'll place a bet on the exact score of 1:0 in favour of Torino.
