Inter Milan were the biggest losers in last week’s round of fixtures after a surprise loss to Sampdoria left the I Nerazzurri as the only side in Italy’s top ten not to pick up at least a point.
The defeat leaves Inter occupying sixth place in Serie A trailing Atalanta by three points and just one point ahead of city rival’s AC Milan.
However, a trip to strugglers Crotone on Sunday should give Inter boss Stefano Pioli ample opportunity to get back to winning ways.
Crotone sit in the final relegation place five points from safety, although they do come into the game after claiming only their fourth win of the season last time out against Chievo.
That win looks as good as it is going to get for the minnows with Inter a wounded animal ready to pounce for the three points.
Inter’s superiority is reflected in their price of 4/13 for the win with the home side out at 35/4. However, the best value lies in Inter to claim the away win and prevent Crotone from scoring at home at 21/20 with us.
Atalanta’s fine form has continued with back to back wins over Pescara and Genoa respectively lifting the Goddesses to fifth and with an outside chance of sneaking a Champions League spot for next season.
On Saturday, they host a Sassuolo side who have failed to live up to last season’s expectations after finish the previous campaign in sixth.
Currently holding fifteenth place in Serie A, safety is assured for the Black and Greens but head coach Eusebio Di Francesco will be eager for his side to finish the season strongly.
On current form, Atalanta should have no problems disposing Sassuolo at home at 20/43 with us especially when you consider the last time Sassuolo scored more than once in a game was back in mid-February.
Get on an Atalanta win with the Goddesses the first team to score at 4/9 with Comeon!
Week 31 rounds out with a cracker as fourth place Lazio host third place Napoli on Sunday night.
The gap in the table between the two stands at four points and with the final Champions League berth up for grabs for next season, this game has added impetus for both sides.
Lazio cannot afford to lose if they are to finish in the top three whereas Napoli cannot afford to lose if they are to finish second.
Something will have to give with an expectant Atalanta waiting in the wings in fifth.
Both sides have won one and drawn one in their last two fixtures proving the sides are very evenly matched.
All of this points to an entertaining draw at the Stadio Olimpico at a decent 12/5 with us.
Inter Milan are out for revenge and they should get it against relegation threatened Crotone this Sunday.
Inter to win and prevent low scorers Crotone from finding the back of the net is 21/20 with Comeon!
