Serie A Tips: Back Roma and Inter to win

Can Edin Dzeko fire Inter to another win?

Serie A continues apace with an exciting weekend of action so Chloe Beresford is back with three selections for the upcoming matches in Italy's top flight...


Lecce looking good

Hellas Verona v Lecce
Saturday January 21, 14:00

Hellas Verona come into this game in woeful form, winning just one of their last 13 games and just one of their last six at home.

The Gialloblu have just nine points thus far, their second lowest tally ever at this stage of the season. Their opponents are on a six-match unbeaten run, their longest positive streak in the top flight since way back in 2004.

With that in mind, the tip here is to simply back Lecce to win, a bet which is available at odds of 3.39/4 on the Betfair Exchange.

Roma to squeeze past Spezia

Spezia v AS Roma
Sunday January 22, 17:00
Live on BT Sport 1

AS Roma are unbeaten in their last five league games and go into this one aware that they have never lost to Spezia, recording three wins and a draw in their four meetings thus far.

No side has earned more points than Jose Mourinho's men (25) against teams in the bottom half of the table this term, and Spezia - who have failed to win any of their last five home games - currently occupy 15th place.

With the Giallorossi having seen under 2.5 goals in five of their last six outings, the tip here is to back AS Roma to win & under 2.5 goals at 3.7511/4.

Supercoppa winners to keep winning

Inter v Empoli
Monday January 23, 19:45
Live on BT Sport 1

Having routed crosstown rivals AC Milan 3-0 in the Supercoppa Italiana final on Wednesday night, Inter will return to Serie A action in good spirits and that could well be bad news for Empoli.

The Tuscan minnows currently sit 12th in the table and have failed to win any of their last five away games, while fourth-placed Inter have won eight of their nine home games this term. It is also worth noting that the Nerazzurri have won each of their last nine meetings with Empoli, out scoring them by 20 goals to seven. Back Inter to win both halves at 2.8815/8.
