Serie A Predictions, Live Stream and Odds 2020-21

2021-22 season of Serie A already began, the fans returned to the stands. Up to 50 per cent audience are allowed in the stadium for each game. Though things are getting better, Italy is still processing the aftermaths of the pandemic.

The top flight of Italian football enjoyed a different version last term. Vintage powers Inter and AC Milan fought hard for glory and usurped Juventus in the first half. While AC Milan withered away, Inter held the ground. Other clubs like Napoli and Roma took a breath of fresh air.

However, off the field scenarios are far from the on-screen reality. Like Ligue 1 and Laliga, Serie A has its fair share of problems. Just when the league was getting interesting, Romelu Lukaku moved to his former side Chelsea. Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus’ star striker, is looking for a new home. Juventus, who are devastated by economic difficulties, are also open to ease off the £900,000 weekly wage bill. Similar to Lionel Messi situation in Spain, the transfer of Ronaldo will take a toll on the broadcasting income for Serie A.

Predictions

Serie A resumed after the winter break under another Covid scare, four of the Round 20 matches were suspended consequently. Inter were crowned the winter champions as Napoli and AC Milan faltered a little. Atalanta remains in the thick of the race while Juventus have nearly caught up with the top four. Here’s BettingPremier’s take on this weekend’s matches:

AC Milan vs Juventus

AC Milan and Juventus lock horns with each other at San Siro Stadium on Matchday 23 of the Serie A campaign. The Rossoneri could have stood alone at the summit of the standings but the 15th-placed Spezia came back from behind and inflicted a 2-1 shocking defeat to Milan at San Siro the gone weekend. Stefano Pioli’s men are now two points short of city rivals Internazionale with the latter having a game in hand. The race for the scudetto is getting more fierce and AC Milan cannot afford slip-ups of the sort – despite the referee’s mistake – in the second half of the season if they have plans to win the league. Ballo-Toure is on international duty, as is Kessie.

Juventus’ hopes of lifting the Italian Super Cup aloft was crushed by Alexis Sanchez who found a 121st-minute winner for Inter Milan in the Italian Super Cup. In Serie A, the Bianconeri beat Udinese 2-0 following the 4-2 dramatic win in Rome to stay within touching distance of fourth-placed Atalanta. Unbeaten in the last eight matches that include five clean sheets means the Old Lady is trending in the right direction. The Rossoneri will likely snap Juve’s eight-game unbeaten run in what is one of Italy’s biggest derbies.

Inter Milan vs Venezia

Inter Milan play host to Venezia this Saturday at San Siro on Matchday 22 of the Italian campaign. Head coach Simone Inzaghi added his first to the silverware collection in the Nerazzurri dugout as they beat Juventus 2-1 in the Italian Super Cup final gone week. Internazionale’s eight-game winning streak in Serie A was snapped by Atalanta on Matchday 22 as goalkeepers Musso and Handanovic stole the limelight with incredible saves to keep the score 0-0. The fact that Atalanta were without eight starters should be concerning for the defending champions. Inter are two points clear of AC Milan at the roof of the standings with a game in hand. Correa will be on the sidelines due to a muscle injury.

The newly-promoted Venezia do not look like they will be staying in the top flight for long. The Winged Lions shared the spoils 1-1 with Empoli last time out to go winless for the eighth straight match in the league and remain just above relegation places. Nani had a promising debut, how he blends in remains to be seen. Ebuehi is unavailable as he is on international duty. Inter Milan will rout the visitors to pull further clear at the top.

Napoli vs Salernitana

Napoli meet Salernitana at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona for a Matchday-23 fixture of the Italian campaign. The Parthenopeans are desperately trying to regain the lost momentum and reclaim the top spot in the race for the scudetto. Napoli beat Bologna 2-0 thanks to the brace by the Mexican winger Hirving Lozano and closed in on the Milanese clubs at the helm. Victor Osimhen returned after the facial fracture. The squad is thinned out by the Africa Cup of Nations as Kalidou Koulibaly, Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Adam Ounas are representing their respective countries. The Gli Azzurri are looking to sign Getafe left-back Mathias Olivera in the January transfer window. The bottom-side Salernitana went into the Lazio game in high spirits behind the 2-1 win over Verona but were defeated 3-0 by the Biancocelesti. Ciro Immobile found a brace for Lazio. Salernitana’s hopes of remaining in the top tier have virtually ended having lost 16 of the 21 matches played thus far. The Garnets are a heavily injured squad with eleven questionable players. They don’t have the amenities to stave off a defeat in Naples.

Lazio vs Atalanta

Atalanta take on Lazio at Stadio Olimpico this Sunday on Matchday 23 of the Serie A season. Atalanta demolished Udinese 6-2 to start the year and made a statement of intent. La Dea held Inter Milan to a goalless draw on Matchday 22 and broke the defending champions’ eight-game winning streak despite having been a heavily depleted side. Atalanta have been playing consistently great football over the past couple of years but apparently they are for real this time around. They are now four points short of third-placed Napoli with a relatively tough stretch on the horizon. If La Dea can make it to the other end with decent outcomes they will be posing a much bigger threat for the Milanese clubs and Napoli in the final quarter of the season. Lazio picked up their third victory in five matches by beating Salernitana 3-0 on the road. Ciro Immobile is in such great form that he could take his team up the standings if he gets adequate support. Pedro is on the sidelines with a calf injury. Atalanta are the favourites to win this clash.
