Another season, another Scudetto for Juventus, or at least this is what we expect. With 8 rounds to go, they are 4 points clear at the top of the table. With just 2 defeats all season, the leaders have the best attack and the best defense in Serie A with 70 goals and just 16 conceded. On the other side we are talking about Benevento, the last team in the standings with no chance to avoid relegation, the worst defense in the league with 69 goals conceded, a team with 25 games lost. It’s true, Benevento enter this match on the back of a great 3-0 win, but that was against their relegation rivals Verona. Juventus are low on confidence losing 0-3 on home soil against Real Madrid in the Champions League 1st leg quarter-finals. This is a must win for the visitor, and they will definitely try to maintain their lead and secure their 1st spot in the standings. Bet on the match at BMR’s green-listed bookmakers.
Best pick for the match: Juventus to win with -1.5 AH at 1.7 with Unibet.
Eighth-placed Fiorentina are sitting just 4 points behind the European spots. They are enjoying an amazing period with 5 consecutive wins, from which in 4 they’ve managed not to concede. They are fighting for a top 6 finish with AC Milan and Atalanta, and they enter this match full of confidence and ready to extend their impressive run. AS Roma are unbeaten in their last 4 matches and they are sure about their Champions League spot for next season sitting 3rd in the standings with 60 points earned in 30 rounds. They failed to pull off the upset against Barcelona in the mid-week, losing 1-4 on the road in the UCL quarter-finals 1st leg. We expect a match dominated by the hosts but in which Fiorentina should have enough to contribute on the scoreboard.
Best pick for the match: Both teams to score at 1.75 with Betfair.
Udinese’s problems could be about to get bigger, given that they’re not a team capable of grinding out draws. The have a leaky defense holding them back and we don’t expect them to find their best shape in this match. They are coming after 7 consecutive defeats, scoring just 2 goals in the process, but fortunately for them they don’t have relegation issues as they are sitting 9 points above the danger zone. Lazio are unbeaten in their last 7 against Udinese, winning 6. Udinese’s players are already in vacation and they are not interested to win points and perform the way they did in the 1st half of the season, so we expect them to have the same fate against Lazio and lose their 8th match in a row. Lazio are eager to win finish the season in top 4 as they are sitting just 2 points behind 4th-placed Inter. This is a must win for away side, and despite playing in the Europa League on Thursday against Salzburg they will definitely use their best starting XI against Udinese.
