Leg 1 – AC Milan vs Cagliari – Milan win and Over 2.5 Goals @ 19/20

The Rossoneri hold a great record against the Sardinians, having won seven of the last eight games.

Cagliari’s last win at San Siro against AC Milan came in 1997 and since then the hosts have won 17 and drawn two.

But Stefano Pioli’s men are winless in the last four matches, that’s their worst streak since February 2023 when victory eluded them for five straight games.

AC Milan have sensibly slowed down in the last month, conceding five goals in their last two home games, as many as they let in the previous 10.

In the last four encounters they average two goals against per match, only Salernitana and Sassuolo, the two teams at the bottom of the table, have done worse.

Defence has been the hosts’ big issue this season, in fact they’ve shipped 42 goals in total (8th best record in Serie A), and could struggle to keep Cagliari at bay.

The visitors have scored five in their previous six matches, including two in their last trip to Milan when they drew 2-2 against champions Inter.

Claudio Ranieri’s men have drawn three of the last four but have only kept two clean sheets on the road.

Only three Serie A’s sides have conceded more than Cagliari’s 60 goals this season.

Leg 2 – Lazio vs Empoli – Lazio win @ 3/5

The visitors are only two points ahead of Udinese, currently occupying the 18th position in the table, and this trip to the ‘Stadio Olimpico’ look extremely tricky.

Empoli have failed to score in seven of the last nine games and have lost the last four to nil.

The Tuscan side have the worst attacking record in Serie A, with only 26 goals scored, and have drawn a blank in 20 occasions.

Since March, no other team playing in Europe’s top five leagues has failed to find the back of the net as many times as Davide Nicola’s men did.

Lazio, who have never lost at home to Empoli in 13 games (nine wins, four draws), will be encouraged by their recent record, ten points from the last four league games, and can make the most of home advantage.

Not only Igor Tudor’s side has won the last three matches played in front of their fans (against Juventus, Salernitana and Verona) but has also kept three clean sheets in the last six games, as many as they recorded in the previous 12.

Empoli have conceded in each of their last eight road trips, therefore a Lazio win, in a low scoring match, looks the most likely outcome.

The Biancocelesti have only scored 20 goals at home, that’s the fifth worst attacking record in the league.

Leg 3 – Atalanta vs Roma – Both Teams To Score – Yes @ 8/11

After the Europa League’s fatigues, both sides need to switch their attention to this crucial Champions League qualification six-pointer.

The hosts are in better form than the Giallorossi and, thanks to three consecutive wins, have reached fifth position. Atalanta still have a game in hand, but a win for Roma on Sunday would change everything.

The hosts are in great shape, having lost only one (2-1 against Cagliari) of their past seven league games.

Unlike other in previous seasons, Atalanta have been particularly strong at home this term. In fact, Giampiero Gapserini’s men have obtained 35 points in 16 matches played at the ‘Gewiss Stadium’.

Only in 1947/1948 they had done better (36 points) at the same stage of the season. Atalanta have only been defeated in Serie A two times in front of their fans (by Inter, Napoli) and failed to score only against Juventus (0-0 draw).

Roma looked tired last weekend against Juventus and could have lost the game if it hadn’t been for a couple of Svilar’s brilliant saves.

Probably having had to recover many points in the league since January is taking its toll on De Rossi’s men, who have only won two of the last six in Serie A.

This season the visitors haven’t won any of the big matches they’ve played away from home, as their only two successes against Italy’s top sides (Napoli and Lazio) have come at the ‘Stadio Olimpico’.

Atalanta has Italy’s third-best attack (63 goals) and has scored more than once in ten domestic games.

But Roma are unbeaten in seven away games and have only failed to score once since January.

Both Teams To Score – Yes has been a winning bet 11 of Roma’s 17 away games this season.

Leg 4 – Lecce vs Udinese – Under 2.5 Goals @ 8/13

The Salentini are inch closer to achieve salvation thanks to their excellent run that saw them losing only one of the last seven games. Before Luca Gotti replaced Roberto D’Aversa on the bench, Lecce had suffered nine defeats in 12 games.

On Monday a draw might be enough to guarantee they’ll play in Serie A also next season, whereas Udinese, who are two points adrift from Frosinone and Empoli, are desperate to achieve the fifth win of their season.

The Friulani have drawn 18 times so far and their record against teams in the bottom half of the table is very poor. They’ve collected just 13 points in 15 matches. Only Salernitana, who are already relegated, have done worse (nine points).

Five Lecce’s games under Luca Gotti (a former Udinese boss) have produced two goals or fewer and Udinese have drawn their last two matches by 1-1.

The visitors will play their next two games against the teams right above them, Empoli and Frosinone.

On this match day, Udinese have the advantage of playing on Monday and knowing already the result of their direct rivals to avoid relegation.

If neither of those two sides above Udinese win at the weekend, which is very likely, Fabio Cannavaro’s men will probably be happy with a draw.
