Betting preview, odds and tips for Serie A matchday 26
Napoli’s top-of-the-table clash with Juventus and the Derby della Capitale between Lazio and Roma dominate proceedings in Serie A this weekend.
Both matches should be high on quality, controversy and have no shortage of talking points. You can watch the pair of them via our streaming service if you bet on either match. But let’s talk odds first…
Napoli v Juventus (7:30pm, Sunday)
Three 0-0 draws in five league matches have put pay to any hope Napoli had of catching Juventus at the top. Now it looks as though Carlo Ancelotti’s men will have to settle for second once again.
A positive result isn’t beyond them at the weekend at least. Gli Azzurri have lost once in 25 league matches at the Stadio San Paolo and have taken points on four of Juve’s last five visits to Naples.
They’re 27/20 to win outright or 4/11 on the Double Chance. Arkadiusz Milik could be key to their chances. The Polish hitman has 15 goals this term, including four in his last three home matches in Serie A.
Lazio v Roma (7:30pm, Saturday)
Derbies don’t get much more intense than Lazio v Roma. This one has added importance with both clubs fighting for a Champions League spot.
The ‘visitors’ hold the current advantage behind AC Milan, although a win for the ‘hosts’ will put them back in the mix. The bad news for Lazio backers is that they’re woefully out of form.
Not only are they four without a win, they’ve also got a rotten record as the home side in this fixture, failing to beat Roma since 2012 in Serie A. Eusebio Di Francesco’s men are 7/4 to keep that run going.
AC Milan v Sassuolo (5pm, Saturday)
Encounters between Milan and Sassuolo aren’t usually dull. The pair have shared two 4-3s, a 3-2 and a 4-1 in their 11 Serie A meetings so far. Both Teams to Score again this time around is 20/23.
Gennaro Gattuso’s men are in much better form than their opponents and could move up to third with a win at the San Siro. They’re 1/2 to do just that, and 13/10 to do so with Over 2.5 Goals in the match.
Krzysztof Piatek is the go-to-man for the hosts. Another Pole tearing it up in Serie A, the 23-year-old has seven goals in his last seven matches. He’s 7/10 anytime and 16/5 for his third brace in that run.
