Atalanta can take a step towards securing more Champions League football next season with a home win here. It doesn’t look like they’ll catch Inter above them in third, but with Roma just one point behind them they’re going to be desperate to put some light between themselves and the chasing Romans.
Sassuolo are seven points above safety so look like they’ll be fine, but one or two bad results and they could well get dragged into a relegation dogfight.
Atalanta are strong at home, having lost just four times this season in the league, Sassuolo on the other hand have won only three on their Serie A travels this season.
Atalanta’s scoring record is mighty at 2.75 goals per game and 1.58 conceded, Sassuolo are averaging just 1.08 goals on the road and conceding 1.42. We like the look of Atalanta to Win & Over 2.5 Goals here, a bet that would have won in the previous three meetings between the pair at the Gewiss Stadium.
Valencia find themselves six spots behind the European places and welcome an Osasuna side who haven’t won at the Estadio de Mestalla since 2004.
Valencia haven’t lost a single home match in La Liga this season, however with seven draws they’ve obviously dropped points there.
Osasuna have won just three times on their league travels, drawing six and losing five. With the vistors having such a terrible record away to Valencia, we have to fancy the home side here. Especially considering as they’ve won four out of the last five matches at home, while Osasuna have lost three of their previous five away matches.
This will be the second match since the restart of the Turkish Super Lig, where there are still four teams in with a shout of landing the league title.
Galatasaray in fourth on 50 points find themselves nine points behind Basaksehit, but will move up to third should they win here. The home side have lost just one of their 14 home league games this season, while Gaziantep have won just three on their travels in the league.
Galatasary have the fewest goals conceded average in the league at 0.57 goals per game and the away side are averaging just 1.0 goals per game, they have failed to score in three of their last five away matches. Thanks to the good odds available, as well as Galatasary’s Clean Sheet record, we’re backing the home side to Win to Nil here.
Inter had given us a good first half of the season and most thought they were going to be Juventus’ main title rival, but far too many draws against lesser sides saw them fall out of the race though. However, they look nailed on for Champions League football next season and are in with a good shout of winning this season’s Europa League.
Back to this match though, Sampdoria have a terrible record at the San Siro for Inter matches, they’ve won just one of 10, while Inter have won six. Over 2.5 goals have been seen in half of the last 10 meetings between the side, while Both Teams To Score has landed in seven of those. Inter’s home record has seen them lose just of one of their previous 12 games, Sampdoria on the other hand are pretty bad on the road, scoring victory in just three of 11 matches on their travels.
Inter are massive favourites so there’s no value there, Inter to Score Over 1.5 Goals, while short odds, is tempting though and we are taking that to close out our accumulator.
