Serie A kicks off again!

19.06.2020

The Serie A, Italy’s highest football division, kicks off again after months of forced absence. This opens up yet another betting market for our sports bettors. As one of Europe’s Big Five, this exciting competition is rife with fascinating options to make a lot of money with some clever bets! We’ll be looking into some of the most important games in the league’s upcoming matchday. The Serie A is far from over, so let’s figure out some smarter bets to place right away!

Atalanta – Sassuolo (Sunday June 21, 7.30 p.m.)

The 2019-2020 season marks the season that Atalanta proved itself to be a force to be reckoned with. The team from Bergamo currently sits in a comfortable fourth place with 48 points. That’s not enough for the outsider to lay a credible claim on the title anymore, but speaks volumes of its persistent ambitions to play European football. With 70, Atalanta also has the highest goal difference in Serie A.

Sassuolo, on the other hand, only leads the second half of the table from its eleventh place. With 32 points so far, it finds itself among similar teams with a similar points total. A victory could potentially see Sassuolo rise up to an eighth place, or fall down to a thirteenth place, depending on results elsewhere. However, away against a well-oiled offensive machine like Atalanta, it will be a hard to make a stand…

Inter Milan – Sampdoria (Sunday June 21, 9.45 p.m.)

Thanks to Belgian international Romelu Lukaku, Inter Milian is back in killer form. Internazionale is firmly holding on to the third place in Serie A at the moment, and can virtually still make the title race all the more interesting, as there are still 39 points to be made across 13 games left. As it now stands, Inter is 9 points off leader Juventus, so every victory counts for Romelu Lukaku and teammates…

Sampdoria, the sixteenth out of twenty teams in Serie A, is not the biggest opponent for Inter Milan, at least not on paper. The team from Genoa will need to bring its best football to the pitch if it wants to make a point to the teams below fighting against relegation. In the end, however, a victory for Sampdoria seems highly unlikely. Of course, we won’t know until after the game!

Bologna – Juventus (Monday June 22, 9.45 p.m.)

With Bologna, we have one of those teams that have to compete with Sassuolo to hold their ground in the middle of the Serie A rankings. Tenth with 34 points, a victory could see it move up to a seventh place. Victory here would pave the way to even loftier ambitions, as a potential sixth place could mean European football. However, Bologna has to host Serie A powerhouwe Juventus for its upcoming game…

Star-studded Juventus is leader in Serie A; however, it has SS Lazio breathing down its neck with only a single point less (63 versus 62). Juventus surely has the talents in its team to create some distance with a stellar performance against a weaker opponent. However, The Old Lady lost the Coppa d’Italia to rivals SSC Napoli… Will they strike back with a vengeance against Bologna, or fail to deliver once more?
