The Italian top flight is nearing it’s end and it looks like it will be the best season finish in years. Besides Inter, who will be champions, the rest of the European spots are up for grabs. In the last round, all teams playing for a UCL or UEL spot won their fixtures, all except Roma who lost to Inter. With things as they are, the holding champions might not even be able to reach a UCL spot. Atalanta, Napoli and Milan are all above them and to make things worse even Lazio is making a late challenge for a UCL spot. It seems like we won’t know which teams will feature in the UCL and UEL until the very last game of the season. However, for now, Juventus are the ones that find themselves in an awful position. Not qualifying for the Champions League would be a massive failure.
Bitcoin Betting will be popular for sure as predicting these games is tough. We can’t even imagine how the table will look after the last round. Below, we will cover the three fixtures that could make the biggest impact on the table. First, we have Atalanta in an away fixture against Genoa. The hosts guaranteed their safety in the last round so Atalanta are strong favorites to win. Next, we have the derby of the round between Inter and Juventus. The hosts don’t have anything to play for but they would love to mess things up for one of their biggest rivals in Serie A. Lastly, we have Napoli away from home against Fiorentina in a fixture they must win if they hope for UCL football next season. For more information about Serie A, check their official website.
Serie A Predictions & Bitcoin Betting Tips
Genoa vs Atalanta
The hosts confirmed their Serie A (SA) status with a midweek win at Bologna (2-0) to continue their run of scoring first and avoiding defeat this season (W7, D5, L0). Despite being rated as huge outsiders here, Genoa will try to build on their surprisingly strong home record against current top-four sides (W1, D1, L1), but must be careful in the latter stages considering all five of the goals conceded in those games arrived beyond the 50th minute. The hosts suffered their first home loss since the middle of December last time out here (W4, D7), with three of their last five home matches featuring both teams score before HT. Genoa are aware of the importance of a good start too, as 72.22% of their SA matches at the Luigi Ferraris have witnessed the same HT/FT result.
A 2-0 win over Benevento extended Atalanta’s unbeaten SA run to ten matches (W8, D2) and kept them three points above the fifth-placed side. Expected to continue their successful run here, ‘La Dea’ are unbeaten in all 15 away league matches they’ve played against teams outside the current top four (W9, D6). Only one side has seen more than Atalanta’s nine HT/FT away victories, but no other team has failed to win more than their three away league matches when leading at HT (D3). However, Atalanta have kept a joint-second league high 13 HT clean sheets on the road, suggesting they are no strangers to strong starts.
With Genoa securing survival in the last round, they will come to this match with no pressure. Atalanta, on the other hand, need to win here because they face Milan in the last round. If they drop points in both games, Atalanta could lose their UCL spot. They have to win against Genoa even though they have been unable to do that in the last two meetings against them. Nevertheless, with Genoa having nothing to play for, Atalanta should be able to secure the points. For that reason, we are are backing a -1.75 Asian Handicap outcome @ 1.75 odds.
Genoa vs Atalanta
Juventus vs Inter Milan
Despite winning midweek, Juventus remain outside the Serie A (SA) top four heading into this Derby d’Italia against title-winning Inter Milan. An inability to close out matches has been a major hindrance, and Juve have averaged just 1.20 points per fixture across their 15 SA games this season that ended with a margin of under 1.5 goals separating the teams (W3, D9, L3) – the lowest such average amongst the division’s top-nine sides. Juventus have lost just twice at home in SA during 2021 (W10, L2), but a 3-0 defeat vs AC Milan in their last match here will have been hugely disappointing. They do possess the derby bragging rights with a seven-game unbeaten H2H home run in SA (W5, D2), and scoring first could help extend that, as Juve are unbeaten when netting the opener in league home action this term (W10, D1).
Newly-crowned champions Inter are unbeaten in 20 SA games (W16, D4), and will test Juve’s opening goal record as they’ve picked up a league-best average of 1.60 points per game when trailing 1-0 so far (W4, D4, L2). Much of that ability to launch a comeback is down to strong showings late on, and Inter have subsequently netted 48.78% of their league goals after the 60th minute. Having stopped Juventus’ nine-year Scudetto dominance, Inter are hunting a SA double over their rivals for the first time since 2003/04. A ten-game unbeaten top-flight away run coming into this clash is promising (W6, D4), albeit that’s come about despite leading at HT just three times during that period.
Inter don’t really have anything to play for but they would love to ruin Juventus’s season even further. If they cause them to drop points, Juventus will surely be out of the Champions League next year. The first time they met this season, Inter won the fixture. However, they played twice in the Italian Cup after that and it was Juventus who did better there. So, anything can happen in this one but Inter are definitely the ones that are in better form. For that reason, we are backing a Both Teams to Score outcome @ 1.60 odds.
Juventus vs Inter Milan
Fiorentina vs Napoli
The hosts are now safe in the Italian top-flight, after constructing their first unbeaten run of five Serie A (SA) matches this term (W2, D3). However, the inquest has only just begun, and weak second-half performances remain a real issue, as no SA team has attained less than their meagre tally of six second-half wins (2H: W6, D15, L15). The hosts possess a balanced SA home record (W6, D6, L6), but have been devilishly frustrated in previous clashes against other current top-five sides here (D1, L3), conceding a first-half opener in all three losses. Striking first may be crucial, as Stadio Artemio Franchi is one of only two stadiums yet to see a first goalscorer lose this SA campaign (W12, D5).
UEFA Champions League spot chasers Napoli recently became the first Italian team to reach 100+ competitive goals this term, and have opened the scoring in seven consecutive SA matches (W5, D2). The ‘Partenopei’ tend to start well, and have scored over 1.5 first-half goals in four of their last five outings. Napoli have won all seven applicable top-flight away matches when leading at HT, including the last three in a row, so this match may be decided quickly. Additionally, each of their last four SA away victories have been attained by at least a two-goal margin, and Napoli have also kept a clean sheet in four of the last five such outings.
Napoli are a side that can’t afford to drop any points because chances are Juventus will take their spot on the table. On top of that, Lazio are making that challenge as well. Fiorentina are statistically safe from relegation and they can’t really move up on the table. This means Napoli will be motivated more to win this fixture. With that being said, we are backing an Away Side Victory @ 1.55 odds.
