The Italian Serie A has become one of the most exciting and entertaining football leagues in the world in recent years. Famed for being defensively astute and producing some of the most domineering defenders in the past, the Italian Serie A has now evolved. There are more teams preoccupied with an offensive mindset.
Atalanta, Sassuolo and Lazio are clubs that continue to thrill football lovers with their innovative and expressive styles of play every game week, scoring goals in droves.
Inter Milan is close to putting a halt to Juventus’ utter domination of the league this season. However, they face stiff competition from City rivals, AC Milan, who are rejuvenated under Stefano Pioli.
The Bianconeri (Black and Whites) under rookie manager, Andrea Pirlo has failed to reach the heights that saw them win 9 consecutive league titles.
There are just 12 games left to the end of the season. Hence, there have been observed stand-out patterns to help punters cash in big in Serie A.
Crotone To Concede Over 2.5 Goals
Newly promoted Crotone is currently at the foot of the Serie A table having garnered just 15 points from 26 games.
Serse Cosmi’s side is currently where it is because of its atrocious defensive record. The Rossoblu (Red and Blues), as they are fondly called have scored 28 goals in the league this season which is a decent output for mid-table clubs. However, they have conceded 64 goals in return- the worst in the division.
Nigeria international, Simy Nwankwo has scored 10 league goals for the Kroton-based outfit. However, the defence has been porous.
In 26 matches involving Crotone this season, 19 of them have ended with over 2.5 goals scored.
For any punter looking to stake in the Serie A, betting on over 2.5 goals in games involving Crotone is a must-have.
Over 5.5 Corners For Napoli
The corner bet is a very rewarding option for punters who bet on football.
Napoli has dropped down the pecking order in the past few seasons. The Partenopei (Parthenopeans) are seventh on the log in Serie A and risk missing out on qualification for the UEFA Champions League.
Gennaro Gattuso possesses some of the most enterprising forwards in the league like Dries Mertens, Lorenzo Insigne and Victor Osimhen. These players look to commit opposing defenders using their trickery and pace, hence, resulting in the concession of corners.
This season, Gattuso’s men have won an average of 6.2 corners in Serie A. Therefore, punters can earn great returns by backing Napoli to win at least 6 corners in Serie A.
Over 1.5 Goals In Matches Involving AC Milan
This option is a particularly common one for football punters. Similarly, Serie A is one of the best markets for the over 1.5 goals bet.
AC Milan are reborn under Stephano Pioli. The Rossoneri (Red and Blacks) impressively began the season with a 15-game unbeaten start to the league. They are in second place, six points behind leaders, Inter Milan.
The addition of 39-year old Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Anton Rebic has helped to solve the scoring problems they faced last season. The Swede has scored 14 goals so far in the league.
The former league champions are more organized at the back and almost guaranteed to score in every match.
100% of the league matches featuring AC Milan have finished with at least over 1.5 goals.
Inter Milan To Win Second Half
Inter Milan is the current leader of the Serie A this season with 62 points. With none of the chasing-pack able to achieve consistency, the Scudetto is theirs to lose.
Antonio Conte has structured his team to be very difficult to beat. His trademark 3-5-2 formation allows his wing-backs to advance as forward as possible and send in crosses into the box.
The Nerazzurri (Black and Blues) boast of two of the most lethal strikers in the country. Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez have combined to devastating effects this season with 31 goals in between them.
Nicolo Barella has been the revelation of the season for the Milan team. His energy, technical ability and linkup play have been central to Inter’s attacking prowess.
Conte’s in-game management has helped Inter turn the screw in the second half of matches when things are not going as planned. They have recorded 19 second-half wins in 26 matches this season.
Goal/Goal (G/G) In Matches Involving Sassuolo
Sassuolo is one of the teams that play an eye-catching brand of football in Serie A. The Neroverdi (Black and Greens) love to build possession from the back and exploit the spaces in the opposition’s defence.
For a club with limited resources, coach Roberto De Zerbi has been able to improve his players through his innovative coaching style. This makes him one of the most exciting coaches in Italy.
However, due to the team’s style, Zerbi’s men risk turning over possession in dangerous areas of the pitch and conceding in effect.
This season, Sassuolo have scored 40 goals and conceded 39. They score and concede at almost the same rate.
In 25 matches played in Serie A, the small club from Emilia-Romagna has recorded an interesting tally of 18 G/G matches.
For punters interested in the Serie A market, this option is a must-have.
