Ace Football presents detailed betting tips on the upcoming Serie A games of the weekend.
As we prepare for the opening 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 the first matchday of the Serie A campaign.
Expect Goals on both sides when Monza take on Torino
Torino came into the new season on the back of a 3-0 win over Palermo in Coppa Italia’s first round.
Having scored in all but one of their pre-season games, Torino will most likely score against their newly-promoted rivals.
However, their recent defensive stats convince us that Monza might find enough chances to score in their first match of the season.
The hosts have scored at least three goals in all of their last six matches, and we back them to find the back of the net on Saturday.
Don’t expect goals when Milan host Udinese
Milan will start their Scudetto-defending campaign with a match against Udinese.
The two teams’ attacking stats during pre-season suggest we might see many goals on Saturday. However, paying attention to their defensive stability indicates otherwise.
Milan will most likely push to start the season with a victory. But we don’t expect them to risk too much for a statement win.
Having conceded only one goal in their last three games, the Rossoneri are confident enough to defend a possible one-goal lead against their in-form opponents.
Goals likely on both ends when Samprodria face Atalanta
Two friendly games against Newcastle and Valencia exposed Atalanta’s defensive problems before the new Serie A season.
La Dea will go into their season opener against Sampdoria as clear favourites. However, we expect the hosts to put enough pressure on Atalanta’s backline in the upcoming game.
We expect the guests to push for outscoring their opponents. However, Sampdoria’s consistent goal delivery in recent weeks convinces us we will see many goals on Saturday.
