Napoli were left licking their wounds after Atalanta inflicted defeat on the Partenopei at the weekend thus allowing daylight to appear between themselves and rivals Roma.
As if it was just meant to be, this weekend sees Napoli travel to the capital to face Roma in what is a must win game for Maurizio Sarri’s men if his side harbour any hopes of overhauling Roma and claiming the runners up spot in Serie A this season.
The gap between Roma in second and Napoli in third stands at five points leaving the ball firmly in the Roman’s side of the court.
With Juventus once again appearing unstoppable in the league, who finishes second takes its own pride of place and will be an important factor for next seasons Champions League seeding’s.
Roma are 11/10 for the win which is a tempting prospect with home advantage whereas Napoli are 47/20 to get back to winning ways.
However, this match represents the two highest scoring teams in the league with a total of 117 goals between them so far this campaign.
This means we are in for a real treat and action should be in abundance. Over 3.5 goals looks almost assured and at 29/20 with us and could be a great way to ensure a profitable weekend.
All eyes may be on Roma’s game with Napoli but it is Atalanta who have caught the eye this season. Sat in fourth place in Serie A, the Goddesses have lost just once in their last ten and are enjoying a four-game winning run (including that victory over Napoli last time out).
Head Coach Gian Piero Gasperini has inspired his side from mid-table mediocrity to genuine Champions League contenders in one of the biggest shocks in Italy this season.
On Sunday, Fiorentina are the visitors to Atalanta’s Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia with plenty up for grabs.
Fiorentina sit in eighth place and will be targeting a late charge for a European slot for next season and come into the game after an entertaining 2-2 draw with Torino last time out.
Fiorentina’s stuttering form leaves them out at 3/1 to claim the win with Atalanta looking more likely for the three points at 20/23 with us.
However, the draw at 5/2 would leave both sides relatively happy to be over a tricky hurdle unscathed.
Leaders Juventus travel to Udinese on Sunday fully expecting to collect another three points on their quest to land a 33rd Serie A title.
Udinese have lost their last three in row and expect that to become four after the Old Lady has left town.
Udinese have little hope at 6/1 to cause an upset whereas Juventus at 20/43 offer little in the way if value.
The best tip here is to get on a Juventus win and prevent a low scoring Udinese from finding the back of the net at 21/20 with us.
Arguably the biggest game in Europe this weekend sees heavyweight hitters Roma and Napoli face off in Italy’s capital.
Over 3.5 goals at 29/20 with us looks assured with both sides having shared 117 goals so far this campaign.
