Daniele Fisichella Serie A Tips

It was another profitable week for our Serie A Best Bets column with two of the three tips coming good.

For Matchday 25, Daniele Fisichella has picked out his three Best Bets and put together, they make-up our Saturday Football Betting Tips from Italy's top-flight...

Saturday Football Betting Tips:

  • Back Both Teams to Score in Napoli vs Genoa @ Evens
  • Back Juventus or Draw and Under 2.5 Goals via #PickYourPunt in Hellas Verona vs Juventus @ 5/6
  • Back Atalanta to Win & Over 2.5 Goals in Atalanta vs Sassuolo @ 4/5

Juventus unexpected defeat against Udinese propelled Inter seven points clear at the top of the table. Is the title race still alive? The Bianconeri now need to look over their shoulders, as AC Milan are just one point behind them. In the meantime Napoli continue to struggle and Atalanta have won five on the spin.

  • Osimhen’s lateness keeps champions on their toes
  • Disastrous fortnight might have cost Juve the Scudetto
  • It’s always tough without Berardi

Napoli vs Genoa (Saturday, time: 14:00)

The end of Napoli’s painful goals drought (no goals in seven of their last 10 matches) might not be near. In fact last year’s top goalscorer, Victor Osimhen, who’s been absent for the last month and a half, due to the AFCON, will allegedly return to town only on Friday.

The last time the Nigerian striker featured with the club he got sent-off at the Olimpico in the 2-0 defeat to Roma and without him Napoli have only won two of the last eight games.

Last Sunday the Partenopei collected their eighth Serie A defeat which pushed them closer to the bottom three than the top of Serie A’s table.

Napoli’s home form has been extremely inconsistent: they’ve only kept three clean sheets in 14 games in all competitions and lost six times. Saturday’s opponent, Genoa, who held Napoli to a 2-2 draw back in September, are often a tough nut to crack for Italy’s top sides.

They are unbeaten in four away matches and have scored in six of the last seven on the road. Both teams have scored in five of Genoa's last seven Serie A away games, and, despite Osimhen absence, I fancy this very option at Evens.

Verona vs Juventus (Saturday, time: 17:00)

One draw and two defeats in the last three games have all but ended Juventus’ hopes to fight for the title till the end of the season.

The absences of Dusan Vlahovic and Danilo on Monday against Udinese can only be used as a partial excuse. Juventus once again produced too little up front (they had zero shots on target in the second half) and lacked energy and creativity.

It looked like the defeat against Inter had deflated Massimiliano Allegri’s men who, many times already, this season found it difficult to unlock lower-table but organised sides.

Verona have collected five points in the last six games and all their three defeats (against Inter Milan, Roma and Napoli) have been slightly unlucky.

Based on the results at the Bentegodi the Scaligeri would be outside the relegation zone, they’ve scored in eight of the last nine home games but since 2022/2023 they’ve only won one match (2-1 vs Roma earlier in August) against Italy’s top-seven.

Juventus have recently struggled to take the lead away from home: they have not scored in the first 45 minutes against Inter, Lecce and Salernitana and needed two late goals to beat Monza and Frosinone.

However the Bianconeri have won the last three matches against Verona by 1-0, so this might be another cagey affair: Juventus or Draw and Under 2.5 Goals pays 5/6 via our #PickYourPunt feature.

Atalanta vs Sassuolo (Saturday, time: ex 19:45)

Since the end of December, no other side (apart from AC Milan, which has played one more game) has done better in Serie A than Atalanta.

Over the last six league games Gianpiero Gasperini’s team numbers are stronger than Inter’s ones: sixteen goals scored (two more than Simone Inzaghi’s men), and only three conceded (compared to Inter’s five).

The return of Ademola Lookman from AFCON is a great news for the hosts who can count also on a Charles De Keteleare (six goals and six assists) who looks a transformed player compared to last season, as well as other in-form forwards like Miranchuk, Pasalic and record signing Bilal Toure, who scored his first goal for the club last Sunday.

Sassuolo have already been beaten twice by Atalanta this season: 2-0 at home in Serie A and 3-1 in Bergamo in Coppa Italia.

Last weekend they managed to held Torino to a 1-1 draw but remain only one point above the drop.

The visitors have never won (one draw, seven defeats, and only six goals scored) this season without their best player, Domenico Berardi (nine goals and three assists).

The Italian international won’t return until the end of the month as Sassuolo, who have only kept one clean sheet this season and have got the second-worst defensive record away from home (26 conceded), might be in for a tough night.

I believe Atalanta will continue to win, and I like the match result Atalanta and Over 2.5 goals at 4/5.
