  • The struggle to avoid relegation is pretty fierce in Serie A right now. Chievo look set to drop with just one win and 10 points to their name this season, but six teams have a chance to fill out the bottom two. One of those teams is Udinese. Udinese have pulled themselves out of the relegation zone over the last month, but they are out of the frying pan and into the fryer with back-to-back games against Juventus and Napoli. They were throttled by Juventus last weekend, and they are favored to fall against Napoli too.   More

    Inter Milan vs SPAL Preview

    By Jonathan Willis Staying in Italy’s top flight for another year would be huge for SPAL. The small club has only been in Serie A for two seasons in the last half-century, and a third season would go a long way to stabilizing the finances of a team that has declared bankruptcy twice in 15 years. Currently, SPAL sit in 16th place in the table, but they can’t breathe a sigh of relief just yet. Empoli are just a point behind them in 17th and Bologna and Frosinone are within five and six points respectively. That means a road result against Inter Milan on Sunday would be huge.   More

    Cagliari vs Inter Milan Betting Preview

    By Jonathan Willis The goal for Inter Milan at this point is simple, finish in the top four and ensure a spot in next year’s Champions League. Although the club is still alive in the Europa League and can that way, it would be easier to maintain their place in Serie A then beat out 15 other teams for the Europa League title and a bid into the Champions League as a result. Internazionale currently sit in third place in the table with 47 points, but city rivals AC Milan are just two points back and AS Roma sit three points behind. They are looking to avoid any slip-ups, but they have a tricky road test off the Italian mainland against Cagliari this week.   More

    Sampdoria vs Cagliari Preview

    By Jonathan Willis Sampdoria would love to make it back to European competition, but their chances of that happening are starting to wane. The Genoese club has fallen to 10th place in the Serie A table after three consecutive losses, and they are still looking for their first points in the month of February. They still have time to make up ground and sit just five points behind 6th place Atalanta, and Sampdoria are out to narrow the gap when they host Cagliari this Sunday.   More

    Fiorentina vs SPAL Serie A Preview

    By Jonathan Willis Fiorentina are looking to make it back to European football after a two-year absence. Fiorentina have been a middle of the table team in Serie A for the last few years, and they are in the middle of the table again this year. They are in 10th place right now, but there have been indications that the team is ready to rise. They will look to start their ascent this Sunday when they head on the road to take on SPAL. Fiorentina are slight favorites in this game.   More

  • Juventus are closing in on a record eighth straight Serie A title. The Italian giants have yet to lose this season, and they are nine points ahead of Napoli in their hunt for their 35th scudetto. They are an astonishing 20 points ahead of third place Internazionale, and the fact that you could get them at -200 to win the Serie A title at the start of the season looks laughable in retrospect considering their additions. Juventus will look to keep it going this Sunday when they travel to face Sassuolo.   More

  • Lazio have spent this week cursing their luck. They are in eighth place with a 9-5-7 record, but they are just three points behind AC Milan for fourth place and a potential spot in next year’s Champions League. The Eagles were nearly level with Milan coming into this Monday’s match against Frosinone though. They took on undefeated league leaders Juventus over the weekend, and it looked like they would pull off a stunning upset for a while. Lazio went up 1-0 after an Emre Can own goal, and the Canaries held that lead late. Unfortunately, they couldn’t hold on and allowed an equalizer and conceded a late penalty to miss out on a result.   More

    Juventus vs Sampdoria Serie A Preview

    By Jonathan Willis It’s been all Juventus once again in Serie A play. The Italian giants look set to win their eighth straight league title, and they are on pace to post their best record ever. They became the only team in Italian football history to top 100 points in a season five years ago when they finished with a   More

  • AC Milan’s shocking loss to Olympiakos last week could end up being the straw that broke the camel’s back. The defeat sent AC Milan crashing out of the Europa League prior to the knockout rounds, and that was exactly what the cash-strapped club didn’t need. They will only see 3 million Euros from their appearance in the competition, and UEFA has already seized the other 12 million Euros due to Milan for violating UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations. It’s not a great spot to be in after all the club has went through over the last five years, and that will hurt them in their hunt to make the Champions League once more. This weekend, they will be taking on Fiorentina and they are aiming to stay in the top four.   More

    Serie A SPAL vs Chievo Verona Preview

    By Jonathan Willis There’s a lot at stake for SPAL this Serie A season. The small club has one of the most colored histories of any team in Italy. SPAL have twice declared bankruptcy and twice risen from the ashes over the past 13 years, and their most recent return has been worthy of a Hollywood film. After being   More

    Juventus vs Inter Milan Preview

    By Jonathan Willis It’s Juventus’ title to lose. Juventus are heavy favorites per the Serie A futures odds to win their eighth straight league championship this year. They continue to set the bar higher and higher, and they are currently eight points ahead of second-place Napoli more than a third of the way through   More

  • There is a clear delineation of power in Serie A through the first third of the season, and it will be interesting to see if that holds over the course of the campaign. Juventus are head and shoulders in front of the pack, but a second tier has emerged that is breaking away from the rest of the teams in Serie A. Napoli and Inter Milan are currently in second and third place in the table, and they have five points on the rest of the field headed into this weekend’s matches. There is a crowded field looking to catch them behind those two, and AS Roma will have a good chance to narrow the gap at home against Inter Milan this weekend.   More

    Serie A Lazio vs AC Milan Preview

    By Jonathan Willis There are going to be plenty of ramifications when Lazio and AC Milan square off on Sunday evening in Italy’s capital. Lazio and AC Milan are out to grab spots in the Champions League after missing out and being sent to the Europa League instead last season, and Lazio are currently sitting in fourth   More

  • It’s a great time to be an Inter Milan fan. Inter Milan are in a great position to advance in the Champions League despite being drawn into a group with Barcelona and Tottenham, and they are currently in second place in Serie A. They are out to keep the good times rolling against Atalanta on Sunday morning. Atalanta are currently sitting in 10th place, and they have been playing very good football in recent weeks to move up the standings.   More

  • If you squint at the records a little bit, you might think that Lazio and SPAL are the same team. After all, these are the only two sides in Serie A that have yet to draw, and their records are the inverse of each other. However, while Lazio’s 6-0-4 record has them in a comfortable spot in fifth place in the league, SPAL’s 4-0-6 record has them in 15th place coming into this match. No matter what happens here, the two side’s will continue to have inverted records after the game which is an interesting little tidbit to note.   More

    Serie A - AC Milan vs Sampdoria Preview

    By Jonathan Willis Sampdoria are off to a great start this year. They are in fifth place in Serie A, and they are looking to return to European play for the first time in four years. The club already has some quality results this season, and they are looking to chalk up another result against a blue blood when they face AC Milan on Sunday. AC Milan are all the way down in 12th place, but they are just three points back of Sampdoria and they could pass a lot of teams with a win.   More

    Serie A Frosinone vs Empoli Preview

    By Jonathan Willis Last season was a great one for both Frosinone and Empoli. Both clubs have been in the lower tiers of Italian football for much of their history, with Frosinone only spending one season in Serie A and Empoli spending just 12 seasons in the top flight prior to this year. Empoli and Frosinone both   More

    Odds to Win Serie A Update

    By Jonathan Willis It seems a mere formality that Juventus are going to win their eighth straight Serie A title this season. We’re only a little more than 20 percent of the way through the regular season, but Juventus are already six points clear of their closest competitor. To add even more distance, Juventus beat that same competitor, Napoli, by a margin of 3-1 just a couple weeks ago, and that has given them a pretty strong edge in terms of goal differential too.   More

  • Two teams that are off to surprisingly good starts will face off in the Serie A Game of the Week in the United States this Sunday. Genoa are starting to cautiously think about a spot in Europe after a great start to the season. They are sitting in sixth place with 12 points through the first month of play, and they have a goal scoring machine in Krzysztof Piatek.   More

    Serie A Chievo Verona vs Torino Preview

    By Jonathan Willis These are harrowing times for Chievo Verona. The club’s rags-to-riches success story is in danger, and they face an uphill battle to avoid relegation. Chievo Verona have been the darlings of Italian football, Serie A for the last two decades. They were founded in the early 1930s and played only at the regional level for more   More

    Serie A Frosinone vs Juventus Preview

    By Jonathan Willis This Sunday, we will see the best team in Italy take on the worst team when Juventus travels to play Frosinone. Juventus is on top of the Serie A table with the full 12 points through four matches, and the kings of Italy are well on their way to an eighth straight domestic title. On the other end of the spectrum,   More

  • Sassuolo have proven that they belong in Serie A over these last six seasons. The club was promoted to the top flight of Italian soccer for the first time ever back in 2013-14, and they have been out to prove their place since that year. They made it into European play for the first time ever as the result of their 2015-16 domestic campaign.   More

  • There’s plenty of reason for optimism at Napoli, even though everyone just assumes Juventus will claim their eighth straight Serie A title. Napoli finished with 91 points last season, a total that would have been good enough to win the league in most years. They finished just four points behind the eventual champions and were well ahead of the rest of the pack.   More

  • Lazio must be wondering what they did to upset the Serie A schedule makers. The Rome-based club opened their season with Napoli last weekend, and they will face Juventus on the road this weekend. Juventus and Napoli finished last season as the top two teams in Italian soccer and playing these teams in back-to-back weeks to start the year hardly seems fair.   More
