Black and Greens Travelling Means Both Teams to Score
Eric Roberts 2017-02-03 in Football Tips
Sassuolo’s Italian Serie A away games have been full of goals and one thinks that backing both the Black and Greens and Genoa to score in their clash on Sunday is the best way to approach the coupon as a value-seeking punter.
There have been 41 goals in Sassuolo’s 11 Italian Serie A road matches, with eight of them going over two and a half goals. However, the statistic that one really likes is that 10 of Sassuolo’s 11 Italian Serie A away games have not featured a clean sheet – the only team not to score when the Black and Greens have paid someone a visit was second-bottom Palermo in August.
Boasting Italian Serie A’s third best road attack and second worst road defence, Sassuolo lends itself to a bet on both sides to score whenever it travels. Genoa has scored in seven of its 10 Italian Serie A home matches and it has kept just three clean sheets in front of its own supporters. In all, both teams have scored in six of Genoa’s 10 Italian Serie A home games.
With odds of 18/251.72-1390.72-1.390.72 available with 888Sport, backing both Genoa and Sassuolo to score in the clash between the 16th- and 15th-ranked sides respectively stands out as being a wager worth making one’s headline pick.
Pescara has not won an Italian Serie A match on the field of play – officials awarded it three points because Sassuolo fielded an ineligible player – and, according to one’s collateral form analysis, the gap between the Dolphins and Lazio is enormous – Sunday’s favourite holds a 16-0-3 advantage that more than backs up how the ladder looks to the naked eye. Backing Lazio at odds of 31/501.62-1610.62-1.610.62 with Marathonbet is another attractive Italian Serie A investment.
Lazio has, generally speaking, performed well against Italian Serie A’s non-title contenders – the White and Sky Blues are 12-3-3 versus the 15 teams below it on the ladder, including 8-0-0 against the bottom eight sides. Lazio notched three unanswered goals in 10 second-half minutes to beat Pescara 3-0 in the reverse Italian Serie A fixture five months ago, long before the Dolphins were resigned to their fate. Pescara is doomed to Italian Serie A relegation, sitting a huge 12 points away from 17th-placed Empoli.
Finally, speaking of Italian Serie A relegation candidates, Sunday sees Palermo host Crotone in a game that both teams simply must win to give themselves a realistic chance of getting out of trouble. The bet that appeals, therefore, is both sides to score at odds of 1/12.00+1001.001.00-1.00 with BetVictor.
Palermo has been abysmal in its 10 Italian Serie A home matches, collecting only one point. However, Palermo has scored in 11 of its 12 Italian Serie A away games so there are grounds for believing that the Pink and Blacks will find the back of the net in front of their long-suffering fans, particularly if they adopt a positive approach – they have no choice given the state of the ladder.
Crotone has kept just one clean sheet in its 21 Italian Serie A matches but it has scored in each of its nine games versus teams positioned lower than 12th on the ladder. One was expecting most bookmakers to be keen to duck both sides to score because of the situational factors at play so one was surprised to see odds of 101/1002.01+1011.011.01-0.99 on offer at 188Bet. Some bookmakers are quoting as low as 3/41.75-1330.75-1.330.75 .
