Italian Serie A Betting at 22Bet


Napoli Preview – Partenopei out to prove midweek loss was a minor setback?

A rare league defeat for Gennaro Gattuso and his team on Thursday night, but an incredibly damaging one all the same. It meant Atalanta strengthened its grip on the fourth and final Champions League spot following their 2-0 victory in Bergamo, as two second-half goals accounted for a Napoli (6th – W13 D6 L10) side that had been in outstanding form beforehand but, crucially, now trail the top-four by 15 points.

It is another quick turnaround, though, with less than 72 hours between their midweek defeat and Sunday’s Naples encounter with a Roma outfit only three points and one position better off in the Serie A table. Victory for I Partenopei would see the sides move level on points, in what is now a four-horse race (the other teams being AC Milan and Hellas Verona) to secure a top-six finish and qualify for next season’s Europa League.

Despite the midweek reverse, Gennaro Gattuso deserves a tremendous amount of credit for transforming the fortunes of a beleaguered outfit who, at one stage, appeared destined to finish in mid-table. Napoli have won seven of their last nine fixtures in Serie A, losing only twice in that time, while in Naples it is three wins from the last four having beaten the likes of SPAL (3-1), Torino (2-1) and even leaders Juventus (2-1).


Napoli & Both Teams To Score



Roma Preview – Advantage in fifth suddenly precarious after dip in form?

A disastrous restart for Roma (5th – W14 D6 L8). After scraping a narrow win at the Stadio Olimpico against a struggling Sampdoria embroiled in the Serie A relegation battle, the Giallorossi have since suffered back-to-back 2-0 defeats at the hands of AC Milan and Udinese to drop right out of top-four contention. Now they have a fight on their hands ensuring they don’t miss out on qualifying for next season’s Europa League.

The top six sides are all guaranteed a place in Europe next season, with those in fifth and sixth dropping into the Europa League. Roma are currently in pole position, however, their advantage is certainly precarious, with AC Milan in seventh now only five points further back and no doubt galvanized by what they’ve seen recently from Paulo Fonseca’s inconsistent charges.

The Roma boss has now overseen seven defeats in his last twelve Serie A games (W4 D1 L7) at the helm since the turn of the year. They’ve kept just a single clean sheet in this run, conceding on average 1.91 goals per game, while their only wins have come against teams currently residing in 9th, 16th, 17th and 18th. So these are undoubtedly worrying times, for a team now under even greater pressure as those beneath them close in.
