We are going to make predictions for only Seria A and Copa Del Rey as matches for today are very few.
Top 5 Picks with Reasons
1. Lazio will be motivated to beat Empoli
Having achieved a back to back victory against Genoa and Venezia, Lazio will be in high spirit to keep pushing for a place in the champions league qualification at the league table and will put in their best to achieve a 3 straight winning. Their defender Francesco Acerbi’s availability is still uncertain. Lazio has no other injured player ahead of this match.
Empoli are incosistent at the moment though they are not doing bad. They have had only one loss in their last 6 Seria A matches. One key fact here is that they have lost to Lazio in all their last six meetings. For this match, they will miss the service of the central midfielder, Nicolas Haas.
Predictions: Lazio will win, Over 2.5 goals may be seen in this match
2. Sassuolo are expected to beat Genoa despite their flaws
Sassuolo has been inconsistent recently. They suffered their first defeat against Bologna in their last match and will hope to make amends against a struggling Genoa. They will miss the services of Obiang and Matheus Henrique who have been ruled out while Filip Djuricic remains doubtful.
Genoa on the other hand have a good home record but performs very poor away. They have not been able to win any of their last 6 away matches in Seria A. As for the missing players, Sturaro is suspended, Caicedo, Rovella, and Vanheusden were all injured while Serpe and Criscito have contracted corona virus
Prediction: Sassuolo will win
3. AC Milan to win or draw against AS Roma
AC Milan lost form recently but won their last match against Empoli. They are loosing their first position stand at the Seria A table and can’t afford further damage to their scudetto title dream. They will be very hopeful of going back to winning ways against AS Roma. The worst case scenerio today will be a draw. Kjaer, Pellegri, and Plizzari were all sidelined due to injury. Rafael Leao and Rebic are still uncertain.
AS Roma seems to have had a resurgent as they had a back to back win against Spezia and Atalanta. However, they played out a draw against Sampdoria but will hope to cause an upset against AC Milan today. El Shaarawy and Spinazzola will miss this match due to injury while Borja Mayoral contracted corona virus. Tammy Abraham is still uncertain.
Predictions: AC Milan to win or Draw. Both teams to score may as well come on board
4. Juventus to have a narrow win againat Napoli
Juventus with their decent performnces recently are heading to top four of the league table. They have won their last 3 home matches and will hope to extend their winnings to 4 as they welcome Napoli who are struggling at the moment. Danilo is injured. Arthur, Ramsey, Chiellini, De Winter, and Pinsoglio have all contracted corona virus.
Napoli had a good start to the season but has slacked a little recently. They have only won 2 of their last 6 Seria A matches and shockingly lost to Spezia at home. We think their poor form will continue when they visit Juventus at Allianz Stadium today. Mario Rui has been suspended Elmas and Lozano have contracted corona virus. Key striker Victor Osimhen will also miss this match due to corona virus infection and face injury.
Predictions: Juventus to win, Under 3.5 goals is also a good bet here
5. Atletico Madrid to eliiminate Rayo Majadahonda in Spanish copa del Rey
Rayo Majadahonda is a third-division side and they shocked football fans by eliminating Malaga in their previous copa del Rey match. This will give them motivation to cause an upset against Atletico Madrid. This will also be a much bigger task for them. Manuel Sanchez is expected to put up another wonderful performance tonight.
Atletico Madrid are performing very bad away from home and have not been able to win their last 3 matches away. Tonight is a different game as they face a third-division side full of inexperienced but talented young players. Copa del Rey round of 16 is at stake here and Diego Simeone that i know very well will go for nothing less than a comfortable win. Joao Felix, Herrera and Koke’s availability are uncertain due to the controversies surrounding their covid 19 status.
Prediction: Atletico Madrid will win
