Ace Football presents detailed betting tips on the upcoming Serie A games of the weekend.

As we prepare for another weekend of Serie A football, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming matches.

Let’s check out three betting tips for Matchday 31 of Serie A.

Expect goals when Lazio host Sassuolo

Enjoying an impressive run of six unbeaten games, Sassuolo climbed up to sixth place on the table before the international break. They have scored more than twice in all of their seven games across all competitions, showcasing their much-improved attacking form.

This weekend they will face Lazio, who have struggled to keep up with competition from their city-rivals, Roma, in recent weeks. A 3-0 defeat in the Rome derby saw the Eagles slip past Jose Mourinho’s side on the table.

We expect Lazio to push for a home win against Sassuolo to bounce back from the derby defeat. However, that will most likely result in goalscoring chances for the guests’ in-form offensive line.

Don’t expect goals when Verona host Genoa

Despite continuing their attacking struggles, Genoa have been extremely difficult to beat in recent weeks. The 19th-placed side have remained unbeaten in their last seven games, winning on only one occasion.

They have managed to keep a clean sheet against the likes of Atalanta and Inter, collecting precious points in their duty to get out of the relegation zone. This weekend, Genoa will meet Verona, who have seen their attacking line suffer a dip in form in recent weeks.

The Yellow and Blues have scored only once in their last three games, failing to win any of them. We expect Genoa to make it difficult for the hosts to find the back of the net on Monday.

Back both sides to score when Spezia meet Venezia

One of the bottom-of-the-table fixtures of this weekend will see Spezia host Venezia on Saturday. Both sides are on terrible runs of form but have delivered consistent attacking stats against teams of their own calibre.

Spezia have won only one league game since January 23, while their opponents have lost four of their last five matches. The hosts of the upcoming game will look to distance themselves from the relegation zone. However, for Venezia, it is all about escaping the bottom three.

We expect Spezia to find the back of the net at their home stadium. However, their defensive instability convinces us that Venezia will have enough goalscoring chances on Saturday.
