Ace Football presents detailed betting tips on the upcoming Serie A games of the weekend.
As we prepare for another matchday of the Serie A season, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming matches.
Let’s check out three betting tips for matchday 18 of the Serie A campaign.
Goals likely on both sides when Torino take on Spezia
After two consecutive Serie A draws, Tornio returned to winning ways with a Copa Italia win over Milan on Wednesday.
The game, once again, showed Torino’s impressive attacking consistency. Having scored in all but one of their last 13 games, Tornio will most likely find the back of the net against Spezia.
However, Spezia’s impressive attacking numbers in recent weeks, combined with their record in away games, convince us that they will also score on Sunday.
Back Udinese to beat Bologna
Udinese haven’t won a Serie A game since October 2, but we expect them to get back to winning ways against Bologna.
The eighth-placed side have shown consistent improvement in their attacking displays lately, scoring consistently in their recent home games.
On the other hand, Bologna have returned from World Cup with more defensive issues. Back-to-back defeats against Roma and Atalanta have also exposed Bologna’s poor attacking form.
The guests might find a few counter-attacking chances against Udinese. But the hosts’ recent displays suggest they will manage to outscore Bologna.
Expect goals when Lazio face Sassuolo
Lazio have failed to win any of their last three Serie A games, putting their fifth spot in serious danger.
However, they have mostly dropped points due to defensive issues rather than chance-creating problems. Having scored three goals in their last two games, Lazio will have no problem penetrating Sassuolo’s backline.
However, their defensive issues, combined with Sassuolo’s solid displays at home, suggest the hosts will also have a good chance of scoring in the upcoming game.
