We’re marking the start of Italy’s domestic campaign with a near-22/1 acca from Sunday’s fixtures in the first of our weekly Serie A predictions.
Don’t fret if one of the legs lets you down because bwin’s five-team acca insurance ensures we refund minimum £5 stakes as a Free Bet up to £25 when a five-fold is placed on the same day and a single selection goes astray.
Roma to win at Torino @ Evens
The Giallorossi did the double over Torino in this competition last season, prevailing 3-0 on home turf in March after a 1-0 road victory in October. Overall, Roma finished a rock-solid third, six places and 23 points above their opponents, as well as reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League. A decent showing at the International Champions Cup should help them get off to a flying start this term.
AC Milan to beat Genoa @ 53/100
Gennaro Gattuso’s side also mixed it with some of Europe’s elite clubs over in the USA this summer, drawing with Manchester United and beating Barcelona either side of a narrow loss to Tottenham. The Rossoneri have again made some bold moves in the transfer market, with Gonzalo Higuain the most eye-catching recruit, and we reckon they could be a team to follow early on in our Serie A predictions.
Inter Milan to win at Sassuolo @ 31/50
Luciano Spalletti did okay when finishing fifth in his first campaign and has now cleared out the dead wood to free up room for some astute signings. Belgian midfielder Radja Nainggolan comes in from Roma, while getting Croatia full-back Sime Vrsaljko on loan from Atletico Madrid is a real coup. Holland defender Stefan de Vrij is another rock-solid recruit and bidding for Luka Modric shows just how ambitious this club is.
Bologna to beat Spal @ 6/5
Spal just managed to survive a relegation battle last season, as a late surge of three wins in four games helped to keep them up, but we fear they will struggle to score goals in the upcoming campaign. Leonardo Semplici is hoping that a loan move for Andrea Petagna will pay off, but the Atalanta striker has flattered to deceive since coming through AC Milan’s youth system.
Empoli to beat Cagliari @ 11/10
Empoli ran away with Serie B last season, eventually finishing 13 points ahead of Parma at the summit. It was a shame to lose Alfredo Donnarumma after he netted 23 times in that campaign, but Italy B forward Antonino La Gumina is a strong replacement and 26-goal striker Francesco Caputo is still there to lead the way up front. Cagliari struggled on the road last term and are worth taking on here in our Serie A predictions.
