Serie A is back with a host of exciting matches after the World Cup break.
Following a long pause due to the World Cup, Serie A finally restarts this Wednesday. Ten matches will take place on January 4th as the Italian top flight enters its 16th matchday.
Let’s check out three betting tips for the upcoming Serie A games of this week.
Goals likely when Lazio take on Lecce
Lazio hope to remain in the top four as they start the second half of the Serie A season.
This week, the Biancocelesti will take on Lecce, who come into the game on the back of two consecutive wins.
Given Lazio’s current attacking form, we expect them to find enough goalscoring chances against their opponents. However, Lecce’s consistency up front suggests they will also manage to find the back of the net, at least once, in the upcoming game.
Back Sassuolo to beat Sampdoria
Sassuolo ended the first half of the season with a frustrating run of four winless games. They will return to action with a match against Sampdoria, who are eager to get out of the relegation zone as soon as possible.
We expect Sassuolo to push for the home victory. Their improved attacking displays show they have what it takes to put pressure on their opponents’ backlines.
On the other hand, Sampdoria’s poor defensive numbers don’t suggest they can prevent Sassuolo from outscoring them on Wednesday.
Don’t expect goals when Torino face Verona
Verona have slipped to the last spot on the Serie A table after a horrible before the World Cup break.
The Yellow and Blues are struggling with serious goalscoring problems. However, their defensive displays convince us that they can control threats from Torino’s out-of-form attacking line.
On the other hand, Verona themselves have rarely managed to score in their away games this season. Therefore, we expect to see both sides take conservative approaches to the game.
