Italy Serie A Betting Previews for 22.10.2017

Italy Serie A Betting Previews for 22.10.2017 (from www.betting-previews.com)

Event: Atalanta - Bologna Prediction: Atalanta -0.75

Atalanta again have doubts over the fitness of key attacking influence Gomez and after starting in the Europa League on Thursday night, he looks set to miss out. They have good news defensively, as Rafael Toloi is back from injury, creating the possibility of their strongest defensive unit. Some rotation is possible, with Gasperini looking to keep his players fresh and strong. Gasperini's side may have lost their last Serie A match, but they're playing with confidence and have belief after securing another Europa League win, while they have been playing well. Given a -0.75 AH, they'll be keen to beat that and get back to winning ways domestically, but freshness is on the side of Bologna and they've only won three of 14 Serie A home games by more than one goal in 2017. The 2.5 goal line looks fair considering the type of game this is likely to be, but five of Atalanta's eight matches to date have gone over the line on offer. They'll be playing to win throughout and will be the more attack-minded side, while they've shown under Gasperini they can create chances to threaten the line. Having played in midweek, they ideally won't want to be chasing a result late on.
Bologna are only expected to make one change from the win over SPAL last weekend, as M'baye now misses out through injury. Torosidis can come in at right back and ensure they can still start with the equivalent of their strongest XI, while Donadoni has confirmed that Destro is closing in on a starting line-up recall. Palacio should be preferred, being in-form, while Taider is a new absentee. Four games unbeaten and with three wins in a row, Bologna will believe they can triumph with the +0.75 handicap and get another positive result. They're enjoying a good moment and will focus on keeping it tight, looking to defend well, but at the same time trying to edge it. A draw would be a good outcome and as they've only trailed for 46 minutes all season, they are capable of getting something. With a draw being good and considering they don't tend to create too many opportunities or score a huge amount of goals, they'll look to keep it tight and staying under the 2.5 goal line will give them a better chance of getting something. Risks will only be taken if trailing and they may be able to finish stronger than Atalanta, but being behind isn't something they've been used to this season.
Although Atalanta are without a win in their last three Serie A fixtures, they'll go into the game on a high after another Europa League victory on Thursday night. There will be no shortage of confidence that they can get a positive result at home to Bologna. A return to winning ways in Serie A will be the aim as they look to start moving up the standings. Anything less will leave them disappointed, although Bologna are in good form, while Atalanta will feel the defeat at Sampdoria was an undeserved one last weekend.

Event: Benevento - Fiorentina Prediction: Fiorentina -1.00

Benevento have some big problems at the heart of their defence, as Lucioni is banned for failing a drug test, Costa remains out, and Antei is now banned after getting sent off at Hellas Verona. That leaves them short defensively, while D'Alessandro isn't able to return as hoped further forward. It will be a plus if Ciciretti can come back into the starting XI, but he's a doubt, which isn't ideal. The loss at Hellas Verona last time out was Benevento's eighth defeat from eight, so they're still yet to pick up their first ever Serie A point. They'll be hoping to do that to triumph with the +1 handicap, but as they're now five points adrift in bottom place, a win will be their desired outcome. They have less quality than Fiorentina and it'll be tough, but Baroni insists they aren't giving up. Benevento have only scored twice in eight games so far, so realistically a low scoring game that stays under the 2.75 goal line will optimise their chances of a first defeat avoidance. They have struggled defensively as well as an attacking force though, so could find it difficult to contain a Fiorentina side boasting more quality than them and keen to pick up three points.
Fiorentina may well be unchanged from the win over Udinese, as Pioli doesn't have any new injuries or suspensions to worry about and he looks set to have the same squad available to him, with Gil Dias and Saponara the only ones missing. Bruno Gaspar could come in for Laurini in a neutral move at right back, but other changes aren't expected, with Benassi again starting in a more familiar role. Only three points will be seen as a satisfactory outcome for Pioli's side from this fixture and they showed when winning 5-0 at Hellas Verona earlier in the campaign that they have the quality to overcome a -1 handicap and dispose of the teams battling relegation. However, consistency has been lacking and they do sometimes struggle to break teams down and create clear chances. Given the quality difference between the two sides, Fiorentina in theory should be able to win comfortably, possibly pushing the game over the 2.75 goal line. However, against hosts determined to get their first points on the board and given the inconsistency shown under Pioli so far, it's tough to say how the game will pan out and it may end up being closer than the quality gap suggests.
The win at home to Udinese last time out brought an end to their run of three games without a win and they'll now be looking to put together back-to-back victories for the second time this season. Against pointless Benevento, anything less would be frustrating. The win over Udinese will have boosted belief and they'll be confident that they can triumph here, although they have only won two of their last 12 away games in Serie A, dating back to last season, causing some doubts about their ability to get the job done.

Event: Spal - Sassuolo Prediction: Sassuolo +0.00

SPAL look set to have the same squad available as they had for the defeat at Bologna last week, with none of their absentees being significantly missed. Few changes are anticipated from Semplici, but Borriello is predicted to start in attack, boosting their goal threat. Oikonomou, Mattiello and Rizzo are also pushing for starting berths, but if any of them come in they'd represent neutral changes. Semplici's side have only once beaten the 0 handicap on offer since earning promotion to Serie A, while they've lost five of their last six games and therefore don't go into this clash in the greatest shape. They'll be up for the game though, being their second regional derby in a row, and will be hungry to get points in their bid for survival. They will have a go, but avoiding defeat is key. They have struggled to create clear openings in many of their matches, making the 2.25 goal line seem fair, but they have shown promise at home on a couple of occasions. If they edge in front their attention will likely switch more to lead protection, becoming more cautious, but they'll face pressure, while they will have to take risks and potentially make the game more open if they fall behind.
Sassuolo aren't able to recall any of their injured players, so their defensive options are again depleted and a 4-3-3 shape is again looking probable. Pol Lirola should start to give them a slight boost at right back, while Bucchi may decide it's time to relaunch Falcinelli in the centre forward position again, having preferred Matri of late. They can play close to their strongest team overall. Bucchi is coming under pressure, as it's been a disappointing start to his reign and so far they've only once overcome the 0 handicap on offer to take three points. A win is the only outcome that will fully satisfy and they generally do okay away to bottom half teams, but results haven't been good overall this season, so confidence has taken a hit. They'll look to have a go as the away side. Sassuolo possess a bit more attacking threat than SPAL and will be playing to win, potentially making the game a bit more open than the 2.25 goal line suggests. However, goals have been a problem this season, with them yet to score more than one in a game and struggling to break sides down. If ahead they'll continue countering, whilst they'll take bigger risks if trailing, needing to avoid defeat.
It's been a disappointing start to the season for Sassuolo and having only won one game and picked up five points, they sit second from bottom in the table. That signals a worse start to Bucchi's reign than expected and they really need to start winning matches. The aim will be to win away at SPAL, with a draw not really satisfying their needs as they try to pull away from the relegation zone. Confidence isn't great and Bucchi is coming under some pressure, but he insists that his players deserve more for their efforts so far this season.

Event: Torino - AS Roma Prediction: AS Roma -0.50

Torino could well be unchanged from the draw at Crotone, but they continue to be weakened up top by the injury to their main goalscorer Belotti, whose absence is a big blow. Umar looks set to continue, although a change to 4-3-3 isn't out of the question. Lyanco remains out, so Moretti continues in defence with no real weakening attached, while there's a chance of Barreca and Acquah returning. After a good start to the season, Mihajlovic's side have stuttered in recent weeks, with their last three results all disappointing. They'll be looking to bounce back, but face a tough challenge versus Roma, with them being +0.5 underdogs. A win will be the aim, but a draw wouldn't be bad, with them still in touch with the other teams chasing Europe. They're not in the best form, but have belief. Their home matches usually sees goals at both ends, while of their eight games to date, five have actually gone over this high 3.25 goal line. They carry a goal threat, albeit a reduced one without Belotti, but their defensive concerns persist, with them conceding at least two in their last five outings, suggesting the line could be surpassed. This could well turn into an open, end-to-end clash.
Roma have positive team news as they welcomed Strootman and El Shaarawy back into their squad for the midweek Champions League draw at Chelsea and both could start, although Lorenzo Pellegrini is a good alternative to Strootman in midfield. Manolas is out, as is Fazio, weakening the defence, but their strongest XI is available otherwise, with Florenzi likely to be at right back. Di Francesco's side will be hungry to get their Serie A campaign back on track after losing at home to Napoli, but they go into this game with their belief boosted again, having done well at Chelsea in their midweek European match. Only a win will fully satisfy and they have been strong on their travels for a long time now, so attacking and overcoming the -0.5 AH to take three points is possible. Roma are yet to concede away in Serie A, but with freshness on Torino's side and with the hosts an attacking threat, another clean sheet may prove tough to come by. Meanwhile, Roma certainly have goals in them and they'll look to take the game to Torino, just as they did Chelsea in impressive fashion midweek. The 3.25 goal line could be threatened and it's likely to be open up with an early goal.
Roma were disappointed to lose at home to Napoli last time out in Serie A, but the away draw at Chelsea in the Champions League in midweek will have given everyone a lift and they once again travel with belief and a positive mindset. The midweek performance felt a bit like a coming of age. They'll be hungry to extend their 100% record on their travels in Serie A and they won't be truly satisfied to come away with anything less, having already dropped points in relation to their rivals at the top. They'll travel with confidence and with determination to pick up a big win.

Event: Udinese - Juventus Prediction: Juventus -1.25

Udinese have a full complement of players available, as Larsen and Behrami are both fit again after injury, boosting their options. Both come into contention, with it 50/50 between Larsen and Widmer to play right back, while their strongest XI is possible. Danilo should start at centre back in a plus, but Lasagna may drop down to the bench if Delneri opts for a bit more caution with his selection. Delneri's side are underdogs at home to the reigning champions and have a +1.25 AH, which is a handicap they've only lost with on one occasion, at Roma, despite losing six of their eight matches so far. They'll look to defend well and will need to be organised to stop Juventus, but they'll be up for the game and won't just sit back. Despite the quality gap, they could make it a close contest. Despite a disappointing start overall, Udinese have found the net in all of their fixtures to date, suggesting some potential in the game surpassing the 2.5 goal line, as a home goal could be key if that's to happen. Delneri's side will have belief, having caused Juventus some problems in recent seasons, but rather than opening the game up it suits them more to keep it tight and low scoring.
Juventus will have key player Dybala back in from the start after he was only a substitute in last week's defeat to Lazio. Meanwhile, in other good news, Pjanic returned to Champions League action midweek and will start, strengthening the midfield, where Marchisio is also an option again. Matuidi misses out though, while Rugani will start at centre back, with their strongest defensive unit likely. After dropping points in their last two Serie A outings, Juventus will have a steely determination to get back on track with a win. They'll certainly settle for winning by one goal, but the plan will be to overcome the -1.25 handicap and win more comfortably, possessing the quality to do so as well. Their recent performances raise some doubts, but Allegri's side can never be written off. Their three away games to date have gone over the 2.5 goal line, while seven of their eight Serie A matches have this season, with them still scoring goals, but needing to score more due to them uncharacteristically conceding goals too. They're yet to keep an away clean sheet this season, but if they do the game could end under the line, as they'd become less attack-minded if 2-0 up.
Juventus were disappointed to lose to Lazio last time out in Serie A, ending their long unbeaten run at home, but having reacted to beat Sporting CP in midweek in the Champions League, another win will be the target in Udine, with anything less being a disappointing outcome. They've slipped to five points behind leaders Napoli and will be keen for the gap to not get any bigger, while it's only their last two Serie A outings where they've dropped points, so there's not cause for major concern. They'll believe they can come out on top.

Event: Lazio - Cagliari Prediction: Lazio -1.75

Lazio could potentially name the same XI which impressively won at Juventus last weekend, ending their long winning run at home, and de Vrij and Immobile will come in and strengthen them at both ends of the pitch after being rested in the Europa League midweek. Some rotation is possible though, with Inzaghi hinting at rests for Bastos, Radu, Milinkovic-Savic and Lulic. Felipe Anderson remains out. On a high after a good week in which they've won away at Juventus and Nice, Lazio will be hungry to carry on their impressive run and they're showing the quality to suggest they can beat the -1.75 handicap against out of form Cagliari. They'll look to attack and goals are running through the side, so if they get in front they'll look to add more, but simply winning by a one goal margin satisfies. Given how they'll approach the game and look to put the visitors under pressure by pouring forward, the 3.25 goal line could be challenged, while having put four past Milan and six past Sassuolo, they could even beat the line singlehandedly. Them conceding would improve the prospect of overs though, and they have only kept two clean sheets in their eight Serie A games to date.
Cagliari have Diego Lopez in charge for the first time following the sacking of Rastelli and he'll have close to a full squad available, although goalkeeper Cragno misses out. Rafael could play without really weakening, although there are a few unknowns for the line-up, as Diego Lopez looks to put his own stamp on the team. Their strongest outfield team is a possibility. The hope is that the new coach will give them a lift, but being on a four game losing streak, Cagliari make the trip lacking confidence, while it's not clear how the players will react to Rastelli's sacking. A result looks unlikely, while they've already lost 3-0 at both Juventus and Napoli, showing that even with a +1.75 AH Cagliari could be up against it against a Lazio side that are flying. Cagliari have failed to score in three of their four recent defeats and know that opening up will play into Lazio's hands, given the attacking quality they possess, so they'll attempt to keep it tight and under the 3.25 goal line. They aren't a team that can really rely on defensive solidity however, so the line could be threatened, which will likely spell more bad news for the visitors.
Following three straight wins in Serie A, five straight wins in all competitions, Lazio are on a real high. They are playing with confidence and belief, while wins at Juventus and Nice in the past week mean they go into this Cagliari clash with momentum and with a positive mindset. Inzaghi is doing an excellent job and his team are challenging the top teams, so they'll believe they can pick up another three points to keep their positive run going. They won't be satisfied with less and will be determined to avoid complacency.
