Gameweek 25 sees a host of exciting mid-week games set to whet your appetite. With AC Milan getting back to winning ways, the pressure is back on Inter to make sure that they stay clear of their arch rivals back in second. While both Juventus and Atalanta will be hoping to close in on the gap on the top. Let’s get straight to it.
Tuesday 2 March
After losing 4-1 to reigning champions Bayern Munch, the hosts were again disappointing on the weekend when losing 2-0 away from home to Bologna. They face a Torino side who haven’t tasted defeat in their last six games, drawing five and winning one of them. With Lazio wanting to get back to winning ways and with Torino trying hard to keep their undefeated record intact, it’s going to be hard to split them. I’m tipping the half time draw at 13/10.
Juventus were disappointing in their last game when conceding a late equalizer to be held away at Hellas Verona. They face a Spezia side who put in a strong second half performance to claw back a two-goal deficit to earn a point against Parma. With the Old Lady back at home they should be quite hard to oppose. Add the hosts to all multiples!
Wednesday 3 March
Sassuolo host Napoli in this encounter, the hosts come into after drawing 1-1 to Bologna while the away side come into this full of confidence after winning their last two on the bounce. With Napoli just 3 points of the champions league places, their willingness to win this should be much greater than their hosts. Back the away side!
High-flying Atalanta host basement dwellers Crotone in this contest. With Crotone losing their last six on the bounce and with the hosts winning their last four games in the league their does only look like on result here. Take the hosts on the handicap (-2) at 12/10.
AC Milan 8/10
AC Milan got back to winning ways in their last encounter with a hard-fought win away at Roma. They face an Udinese side who also got back to winning ways in their last encounter with a 1-0 win to Fiorentina at home. With AC Milan still within touch of the table, they should be able to win this.
The home side are winless in their last three encounters and they face a Sampdoria side who are winless in their last two games. Genoa should just hold the edge as they are at home, but it promises to be a tight encounter as the away side will also be trying to get back to winning ways. The draw is the selection.
Fiorentina and Roma both went down by a goal each in their last encounters. Fiorentina went down to Fiorentina whilst Roma went down AC Milan. With Roma within touching distance of the top and with them having much more fire power, they should be able to win get back to winning ways here.
Hellas Verona 13/10
The home side are winless in their last eight games and they face a Benevento side who are undefeated in their last three games in the form of Hellas Verona. The away side managed a late equalizer in their last game against the reigning champions. With the away side looking more progressive, they should be able to get the job done here.
Cagliari host Bologna in this encounter after a good 2-0 defeat to Crotone last time out, Bologna were also ultra-impressive against Lazio last time out, winning by the same score line. With Bologna 10 points clear of Cagliari on the table after an impressive performance last time out, they should be able to win this.
Thursday 4 March
Inter Milan 1/4
Relegation battlers Parma take on table toppers Inter Milan in this clash and with Parma’s last win coming in November last year, this really should be a walk in the park for Inter Milan who have won their last 3 games on the bounce. Take Inter on the handicap (-2) at 17/10.
TREBLE @ 7/1
Napoli Win 1/1
Roma Win 1/1
AC Milan Win 8/10
