Back Napoli and Juventus to win this weekend

Serie A returns with an exciting round of action, and Chloe is back with another three selections for the upcoming matches in Italy’s top flight…

Goal fest at the Mapei

Sassuolo v Spezia

Live on BT Sport Extra 3

There should be a high scoring encounter at the Mapei Stadium on Friday night, with Sassuolo having seen over 2.5 goals in 20 of their last 23 games in Serie A, while three of Spezia’s last four away games have also gone over that total.

Recent encounters between these two sides have been full of goals too, with their last three meetings seeing them share no fewer than 12 goals, and Sassuolo have notably scored two or more themselves in each of their last five Serie A matches.

With all that in mind, the tip here is to back Sassuolo to win and over 2.5 goals which is available at odds of 2.56/4.

Udinese under pressure

Napoli v Udinese
Saturday March 19, 14:00

With his team sitting second and just three points behind Milan, Luciano Spalletti will hope to see Napoli keep their good form going with a win over Udinese on Saturday afternoon. The Partenopei have lost just one of their last 10 games, while the visitors here have managed just one win in their last 12 away matches.

It is worth noting that there have been under 2.5 goals scored in 5 of Napoli’s last 6 home games, and that Udinese have found the net just once in their last five away games.

Armed with that knowledge, the tip here is to back Napoli to win to nil, a market that is currently available at odds of 2.47/5.

Juventus to bounce back

Juventus v Salernitana
Sunday March 20, 14:00
Live on BT Sport 2

When you’re rock bottom of Serie A and have just one win in the last 18 rounds of action, the idea of a trip to Juventus Stadium cannot be fun, yet that’s exactly where Salernitana find themselves this weekend.

However, Juve have a number of injuries to key players, and those absences have meant Max Allegri’s side have seen under 2.5 in each of their last nine home games. Therefore, the tip here is to back Juventus to win and under 2.5 goals, a market available at 3.185/40.
