While Juventus only registered a 1-0 win over Fiorentina in September’s Italian Serie A reverse fixture, there is so much evidence that the Old Lady are vastly superior to the Purples that one cannot resist headlining the champions at 17/201.85-1180.85-1.180.85 with BetVictor. According to one’s Italian Serie A collateral form analysis, Juventus boasts an incredible 2-0-17 advantage over Fiorentina – the two teams against which the Old Lady have fared worse than the Purples are third-ranked Lazio and bottom-of-the-ladder Benevento.
Of the last seven meetings of Juventus and Fiorentina across all competitions, six have resulted in victories for the Old Lady, including two in Florence. Fiorentina is a famous name in Italian Serie A but the Purples are living off their reputation because they are 0-5-4 in their nine matches versus the teams occupying the leading eight positions.
Another Italian Serie A side which one fancies to complete a league double is Atalanta, which will attempt to make it two wins from two clashes with Crotone this season. Atalanta is also trading at odds of 17/201.85-1180.85-1.180.85 with BetVictor to follow up its 5-1 home triumph over Crotone in September with a February road win.
All up, Atalanta enjoys a 11-3-5 Italian Serie A collateral form lead over Crotone but the difference between the sides is particularly stark when one just counts the results of games featuring the top 11 teams – the Goddess are 8-2-1 ahead of the Pythagoreans using that subset of data.
Atalanta is 6-2-0 in its eight Italian Serie A matches against bottom-six sides, whereas Crotone is 0-1-10 in its divisional games versus top-nine teams, including failing to score a goal in any of its four home dates with Napoli, Internazionale, Milan and Udinese. Indeed, Crotone has netted only two goals in its 11 aforementioned matches.
Since Crotone returned to Italian Serie A last season, it has lost each of its three games against Atalanta, including a 1-3 loss in last term’s corresponding fixture in which the Goddess led 3-0 before they had a men sent from the field.
Finally, one is going to advocate backing the draw at odds of 3/14.00+3003.003.00-0.33 with 888Sport in the late Italian Serie A match on Saturday which pitches top-of-the-ladder Napoli versus third-ranked Lazio.
Fourteen points separate Napoli and Lazio on the Italian Serie A ladder but one could argue that the Partenopei are not even superior to the White and Sky Blues. According to one’s Italian Serie A collateral form analysis, Napoli trails Lazio 7-3-9 but the Partenopei have outperformed the White and Sky Blues against more highly ranked opponents.
