There are seven Serie A fixtures for fans to get excited about on Wednesday, with plenty to catch the eye at both ends of the table.
Draw Likely in Turin
The early match sees Juventus in fourth host ninth-placed Atalanta with both sides sitting in unfamiliar league positions.
There is a suggestion Juve are finding form, the Bianconeri’s 3-0 win at Barcelona the highlight of their 10-match unbeaten streak, while La Dea head west on the back of two successive victories to zero.
Rumours of unrest are doing the rounds in Bergamo, with talk that talismanic captain Papu Gomez is set to be moved on, but Gian Piero Gasperini has shown time and again that he can live without his best players.
The 62-year-old also knows how to set his side up against the Bianconeri, drawing their last two trips to Turin. Considering Juve are still to truly hit their stride, the
3/1 on another share of the points looks reasonable.
Expect Festive Fireworks at the Meazza
Of the six games at 19:45, second-placed Inter Milan against Napoli in third jumps out from the docket.
Antonio Conte and Gennaro Gattuso are two of the most combustible coaches in Europe, but both will be pleased by how things are turning out for their teams.
Conte may have seen his Nerazzurri eliminated from the Champions League, but they have won their last four in the league. That being said, their two clean sheets in the league this season came on the road and they face a team with 12 away points from a possible 15.
The Partenopei have not won away at Inter since 2017, but will be confident of ending that run on Wednesday.
Both have cause for optimism but look tough to split and instead, the goal markets may be worth perusing.
More Away Day Joy for Milan
Our final selection could have come from a number of fixtures, with arguably the value shot of the night being the
9/5 for Sassuolo to win at Fiorentina.
The romance surrounding Cesare Prandelli’s return to the Viola hotseat is yet to be matched by results and they face a Neroverdi side who have collected 13 points from a possible 15 on the road this season.
However, there is one club who have been perfect away from home this season and that is current leaders AC Milan.
Only Lille have beaten the Rossoneri since the restart in June and the consistency developed under Stefano Pioli has generated genuine belief they can win a first Scudetto since 2010-11.
Coincidentally, it was Wednesday’s opponents Genoa who were the last team to beat Milan domestically, winning 2-1 at the San Siro on March 8th but they find themselves 19th in the table and having won only once at home this season.
To make things worse, Zlatan Ibrahimovic could return for this one after being seen back in training following a hamstring injury.
Genoa have scored in their last four at home so may be good for a goal, but it is hard to ignore Milan, so an away win and both to score at
33/20 or the same result but with over 3.5 goals at
11/5 seem handy outcomes.
