Juve have the title wrapped up and they are just W1 D2 L2 in their last five league games. They suffered a 2-0 away defeat against Roma last weekend. It’s no surprise though that they aren’t at their most competitive with the season over for them. Their home form for the season in the top flight is W15 D3 L0 so they do have the target of defending their undefeated home record. Juventus have won five of their last six on home soil, their most recent game there ending in a 1-1 draw against Torino.
Juve have averaged over two goals per home game, while they have conceded at well under a goal per game on average on home soil. In total Juventus have taken a clean sheet in 44% of their home games this season. Home and away combined though they have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last six played. Juventus have been leading at the halftime break in 10 of their 18 home games, and they have scored in each and every home game played. Juventus boast the best home record in the top flight.
Atalanta earned a 2-2 draw in the league at home against Juve in December
Atalanta beat Juventus 3-0 in this season’s Coppa Italia
Juventus are W34 D12 L5 in the overall head to head against Atalanta
Juventus are on a ten-match winning streak at home against Atalanta in all competitions
Atalanta are on a huge run of form at the moment. They are undefeated in their last eleven league games played now and in their last five on the road. They have won their last four top-flight games and are now standing on the brink of Champions League football next season. They still have a little bit of work to secure that and a win here guarantees that. Atalanta have a huge positive on their side in that they aren’t facing a Juventus who are in competitive mode and Atalanta are the top scorers in this season’s top flight. Their overall away record is a brilliant W10 D3 L5.
Atalanta have scored an average of 2.2 goals per away game this season and 72% of their road fixtures have made it over 2.5 goals. They have won four of their last five on the road (D1) and the draw in that sequence was at Inter Milan. In total, they have taken a clean sheet in just 17% of their road fixtures and six of their ten road victories have been by a margin of at least two goals. Atalanta have scored 65% of their away goals in the second period of games, while they have conceded 62% of their away goals after the halftime break. Only Juventus and Napoli have produced better away record than Atalanta have done this season in Serie A.
Atalanta should have a good chance at picking up a win in Turin. This is some perfect timing for them to be going to Juventus. Atalanta have been in great form and have the scoring power to make a good case for themselves. Atalanta to win.

Juventus will take another big step towards wrapping up the league title early in Serie as they host AC Milan on Saturday. A win here and a loss for second-placed Napoli on the weekend would leave Juve one point from retaining the title. AC Milan have a tough trip to Turin, made worse by them having fallen out of form. Read our Juventus v AC Milan betting tips for more.
AC Milan 17/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 29th, 2019 at 6:35 p.m.)
League leaders Juventus have won their last two league games after having suffered their only league defeat on the season against Genoa on March 17th. That loss was out on the road so it leaves the Old Lady undefeated on home soil this season with a W13 D2 L0 record in Turin. In their home games, they have averaged 2.2 goals per game and have been watertight at the back. Juve have conceded just nine home goals all term with a clean sheet having been earned in 53% of their fixtures.
Moise Kean has taken over the goalscoring headlines with four goals in his last four league outings. He has scored three in his last two home appearances a well. Interestingly Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t scored in the league in any of Juventus’ last six games. Because of how good their defence has been, only 53% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. 8 of their 13 home wins have been by at least a two-goal margin. Juventus have been winning at half time in 10 of 15 home games.
Juventus won 2-0 at the San Siro in the league this season against Milan
Juventus also beat them 1-0 in the Super Cup in January
Milan have lost their last six against Juve in all competitions
Milan have scored just one goal in their last five games against Juve
AC Milan are still tracking for a top four finish this reason, but they have slipped out of form. They were on a great five match winning streak before a loss against rivals Inter in mid-March and that knocked them back. They are now only with one point from their last three league games, earned in a draw against Udinese in midweek. AC Milan have struggled against the stronger sides this season. They are D1 L4 from their five games played against the three sides currently above them in the table.
The away form of Milan is at W5 D6 L3 and they have scored at an average rate of 1.3 goals per away game. They have done well at the back, counting only 12 goals in their 14 away games. They have tallied up a clean sheet in 29% of their away fixtures. AC Milan have only suffered one defeat in their last eight away games. That loss was at Sampdoria in their last road game. All three of their away defeats this season have been by a one-goal margin. They have been level at half time in 8 of their 14 away fixtures.
Juventus are so strong on home soil and they have positive head to head form going against AC Milan from recent meetings. With Milan just out of form and having struggled to make an impact in big games, a home win to nil fits.

Tthis is a big one to look forward to as it is between the top two in Serie A. Juventus hold a massive thirteen point lead over Napoli and so this really isn’t about title points. It’s about pride. Read our Napoli v Juventus betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 27th, 2019 at 10:34 p.m.)
Napoli produced a 4-0 win over Parma last weekend which moved them onto a seven-match undefeated streak in the top flight. They are W2 D3 in their last five played actually with each of those draws being 0-0 results. Their home form has been fantastic this season at W10 D3 L0 and so they should rightly fancy their chances in this one. Napoli have been watertight at the back having conceded just the seven goals in their 13 home games. That is a clean sheet in 62% of their home fixtures this season.
Napoli haven’t conceded in five league games currently. In attack, they have scored an average of over two goals per game. In their earlier meeting with Juventus this season, they were brushed aside in a 3-1 defeat. A win here really won’t make much of a dent in the lead the Juve have over them. It will further strengthen Napoli’s shot at a second place finish in the league though. Both teams have scored in just 38% of Napoli’s home games. They have opened the scoring in 9 of 13 home games and Juventus are the only ones who beat them in home form and defensive record this season.
Juventus took a 3-1 home win over Napoli in September
Napoli are W2 D1 L1 in their last four at home against Juve in all competitions
Juventus have won three of the last five league meetings (D1 L1)
Both teams have scored in five of the last seven meetings
Juve still have not lost a league game this season. They are currently on a three-match winning streak in the league at the moment. They have earned a clean sheet in each of those as well. Juventus have scored at least two goals in all but one of their last eight league games. It is just impressive reading wherever you look. Out on their top-flight travels, this season Juventus are W11 D1 with Atalanta being the only ones to avoid defeat at home against Juve this season.
Juventus have scored an average of just over two goals per away game this season. They have only conceded seven goals away from home, taking a clean sheet in 58% of their away games. 58% of their road games have gone over 2.5 goals. Juventus have been level at the break in seven of their away games. The Old lady have struck the back of the net in all league games played this season. 68% of their away league goals have been after the half time break this season. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in four of his last five league appearances.
There are not going to be many occasions this season that you will see Juventus as underdogs for a league game. They are here and they should be under threat by Napoli. However, Napoli haven’t been prolific in front of goal recently and a Juventus Draw No Bet at 6/5 isn’t a bad shout at all* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 27th, 2019 at 10:34 p.m.).

Juventus are the runaway leaders of the Serie A title race, holding an eight-point advantage at the top of the pile. They have yet to suffer a league defeat this season. It is Roma who are coming to challenge them in Turin on the weekend. Can the Old Lady keep their hot winning form going? Read our Juventus v Roma betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 19th, 2018 at 5:51 p.m.)
There was yet another win for Juventus last weekend as they collected a 1-0 success at Torino in the Italian top flight. That was their seventh straight victory. This season they have gone W15 D1 L0 in Serie A. Their one failure to win a league game this season was in a 1-1 home draw against Genoa back in October. This season in their home games they have averaged exactly two goals per game in the league. Only 38% of their league games in Turin have gone above 2.5 goals this season. That’s partly down to them only conceding four home goals this season.
Juventus have won 50% of their home games to nil and they have been leading at the half time break in five of their eight home fixtures (D3). They have posted a W7 D1 record in their eight home games this season. The Old Lady haven’t conceded a goal in any of their last five league games home and away combined. There are some obvious choices in the goalscorer markets. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in four of Juve’s last five games. Seven of Juventus’s last nine league goals have been scored by either Ronaldo or Mario Mandzukic
Juventus took a 1-0 home win over Roma last season
Juventus have won their last three home games against Roma by a 1-0 scoreline
Roma have won just one of the last five league meetings (D1 L3)
Juventus are unbeaten in eight league home games against Roma
Juventus have a clean sheet in four of their last five home games against them
Roma beat Genoa 3-2 on home soil last weekend in the Italian top fight and that was a win that they needed. They were winless in three before that. Overall they have only gone W2 D4 L2 in their last eight Serie A games so have been struggling a bit. They have won just two games on their travels in the league as well (D3 L3). Roma have not won away at any side currently in the top half of the table. Across their away fixtures in the Italian top flight this season they have scored eight goals and have conceded nine. Just 25% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals
Roma are winless in four road games (D3 L1) at the moment. Looking at their overall form home and away they haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last eight games. 67% of the goals that they have conceded on their travels have been in the second half of games. But as a positive, they are the fourth-top scorers in the league, but the bulk of those have been delivered at home. 72% of their league goals have been scored at home. Roma have opened the scoring in four of their eight road games
Juventus have been in tremendous form this season and Roma don’t look good enough to avoid defeat in Turin. Given the recent run of results that Juve have posted over them, a repeat 1-0 scoreline in Juve’s favour looks solid.

There is a top three clash in Serie A on Friday night as league leaders Juventus play host to third-placed Inter Milan. While this is a top three clash Inter are a massive eleven points behind the leaders and even at this stage look to have far much to do to catch up. Still, they will be looking to become the first side to beat the Old Lady in the league this term. Read our Juventus v Inter betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 5th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
Juventus picked up a good 3-0 road win at Fiorentina last weekend. That was their fifth league win on the bounce. It extended their unbeaten form for the league season too out to W13 D1 which is pretty impressive. In Turin, they have a W6 D1 record, the only failure to win there was a 1-1 draw against Genoa in late October. On home soil in Serie A Juventus have averaged over two goals per game. They have only shipped the four home goals against them as well. Juventus have a clean sheet in 43% of home games this term.
Juventus have earned a clean sheet in each of their last three league outings home and away combined and at home, less than half of their games have gone over 2.5 goals. The Old Lady have hit the back of the net in all of their league matches this season, scoring at least two in each of their last five alone. They have also been leading at the halftime break in five of their seven home games. Cristiano Ronaldo is on a three-match scoring streak in the Italian top flight.
There was a 0-0 draw between them last season in this corresponding fixture
Juventus are unable in six home games against Inter in all competitions
Both teams have scored in just two of the last eight in all competitions
In the last six league meetings, Juve are W3 D2 L1 against Inter
Just two of the last six league clashes have gone over 2.5 goals
Inter failed to earn maximum points last weekend as they were held to a 2-2 draw at Roma. They have gone W9 D2 L3 in Serie A this season which has been a great return from them. Away from the San Siro their record is W4 D1 L2 but are winless at D1 L1 in their last two. That was after winning four away games on the bounce. Inter have conceded six goals in their last road games and that was after only conceding two in their previous five. Out on their travels, Inter have come up with 12 goals in their 7 games and 71% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals.
Inter have scored 67% of their away goals in the second half of games and they have shipped 75% of away goals after the halftime break. Their scoring form has been consistent this season as they have gotten on the scoreboard in each of their last ten league games (home and away combined). They are on a six-match scoring streak away from home in the league too. Each to their last five games home and away have made it over 2.5 goals. The only side to have conceded fewer goals in the league than Inter this season is Juventus. Only two teams have scored more than they have.
Juventus to win to nil at 6/4
Under 2.5 goals at 10/11
* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 4th, 2018 at 6:34 pm)
It is just so hard to oppose Juventus, even in top clashes like this. They are so immensely strong in the league on home soil, that even Inter are probably going to struggle. Juve knows how to handle themselves in top matches like this. Home win to nil.
5th December 2018 / lee - Category: European Football Betting
Basically at this point punters are probably just waiting to see when it is that the winning streak of Juventus comes to an end. They are eight wins from eight games played so far. They go up against Genoa on the weekend who are next in line to try and stop the dominance of the Old Lady. Read our Juventus v Genoa betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 17th, 2018 at 9:00 p.m.)
When will Juventus fail to win a league match? No-one has stopped them in their opening eight games of the season and that includes second-placed Napoli and fourth-placed Lazio who have both failed against them already. Juventus have scored at least two goals in each of their four home games in the league this season.
With an eye on a Champions League return next week we are looking at a Juventus 2-0 correct score option at 5/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). They took a comfortable 3-1 win over second-place Napoli in their last home game.
Four of their eight wins in the league this season have been by a 2-0 scoreline so there is a trend there. Cristiano Ronaldo has made a solid start for them but probably not quite as prolific as the club and fans would have hoped.
Still, we aren’t going to oppose him as the 2/1 first goalscorer favourite for the match* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). The other sensible option for the game from a betting perspective is probably Juventus to win to nil.
Genoa are charged with a tricky return to action then. They lost 3-1 at home against Parma just before the international break which leaves them at W4 D0 L3 for the season. Two of those three wins have been away from home. Their away success came against Frosinone, the side currently second from bottom in the table. Genoa actually haven’t been a goal-shy side, they have done well going forward and are the current top scorers in the bottom half of the table.
The problem is, they have the joint third-worst defensive record in the entire league. Still, we are going under 2.5 goals at 6/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). In their three league defeats alone this season they have conceded twelve goals. There is a clear trend with them. They have lost all of their games against sides currently in the top half of the table. They have won all games against sides currently in the bottom half.
These two met three times last season and Juventus won all meetings across Serie A and the Coppa Italia. They are currently on a four-match winning streak against Genoa. At home they have won their last five in a row in Serie A against Genoa, not conceding a single goal in any of those games. Both teams have scored in just two of the last eleven meetings.
Business as usual it is likely to be for Juventus as they continue to outclass the rest of the division. There is Champions League action coming up in the week, so we can see them conserving. A comfortable 2-0 win here looks solid.
17th October 2018 / lee - Category: European Football Betting
It has been a stunning season from Juventus who are seven wins from seven league games this season and they just are not showing any signs of slowing up. The league leaders make a trip to Udinese on the weekend. Udinese are struggling with three losses in their last five. Read our Udinese v Juventus betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 4th, 2018 at 1:53 p.m.)
Udinese have had their struggles this season and they are W1 D1 L3 in their last five games. So they are not in hot form at all. They have lost their last two, reverses against Lazio and Bologna. Their overall home form is W1 D1 L1. Across those games,, they have both scored three and conceded three. So it’s all very average from them really. All three of the goals which they have conceded at home this season have cropped up in the second half of matches. So there could be a push towards a half-time draw perhaps which is at 11/8 odds* (betting odds taken from October 5th, 2018 at 2:46 pm). They have not been trailing at half time in any of their home games thus far.
To back the half-time draw there is a key stat. Juventus have been drawing at halftime and winning at full time in 6 of their last 8 matches. So that is an eight-match winning streak that they are on in the top flight, seven of them from the start of this term. It’s been pretty amazing stuff and after missing midweek Champions League action through suspension, they get Cristiano Ronaldo back for this. He is the 9/4 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken from October 5th, 2018 at 2:46 pm).
In a big show of power, they put a 3-1 win on the board over second-placed Napoli last weekend to open up a six-point lead at the top of the table. Juventus have collected three clean sheets this season in the league, two in their last three. They have netted exactly two goals in five of their six league outings this season. In the bet365 correct score market a Juventus 2-0 option is at 5/1 odds* (betting odds taken from October 5th, 2018 at 2:46 pm). 71% of their away goals have been after the break.
Juventus won both meetings in Serie A last season against Udinese and they are unbeaten in their last five games against them in the Italian top flight. The Old Lady are unbeaten in their last eight away games against Udinese as well, winning five of those.
We don’t see any reason yet to not back Juventus to win a Serie A match. They are on a different level and we can see them delivering the good again. It wouldn’t be a big surprise if they collected the win to nil either.
5th October 2018 / lee - Category: European Football Betting
This has been a tremendous start from Juventus who have won all six of their games this season. They are just motoring along but they will get their toughest test of the season yet. Second-placed Napoli comes for a visit and they have shown up well with wins in five of their six games. Can they stop Juve’s momentum? Read our Juventus v Napoli betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 26th, 2018 at 11:44 p.m.)
This is the best start to a league season that Juventus have made in 88 years. It has been six wins from for them after they produced another three points in a midweek win over Bologna. It’s been so impressive from them and they have scored exactly two goals in each of their last five games. They netted three in their season opener. This one does have a pretty reasonable chance of going over 2.5 goals which is at 17/20 odds* (betting odds taken on September 27th, 2018 at 7:15 pm).
Cristiano Ronaldo has three goals for the season and he is the top scorer on home soil for Juventus this season. He wasn’t on target in midweek but Ronaldo is a 13/5 first goalscorer option for this game* (betting odds taken on September 27th, 2018 at 7:15 pm). It is times like this when he is often the difference maker. Two of their three home games have been 2-0 successes. But because Napoli are a genuine threat the Juventus 2-1 option in the correct score market has appeal at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on September 27th, 2018 at 7:15 pm).
Napoli have had a good start to the season under new head coach Carlo Ancelotti. They have won five of their six games. They will go to Turin on the weekend on the back of a three match winning streak. Their only setback of the season happened back at the start of September when they suffered a 3-0 loss against Sampdoria on the road. They have scoring power in them do Napoli. They have scored exactly three goals in half of their league games this season. Lorenzo Insigne has weighed in with five league goals, three of them away from home for Napoli this term. Insigne is at 10/3 in the anytime goalscorer market.
Last season they were the biggest threat to Juventus in the Scudetto and that is likely to be the way again this term. This would be a huge three points for them if they could land another success in Turin. Both teams to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on September 27th, 2018 at 7:15 pm). Last season in the top flight Napoli posited fourteen wins and lost just the one road game in at tremendously impressive record. A win on the weekend puts them level on points with Juve at the top.
Last season the two of them traded 1-0 away wins in Serie A. In the last six league meetings things are even between them with three wins each interestingly enough. In Turin, though Juventus have won four of their last five (L1) against Napoli. Both teams have scored in eight of the last eleven meetings across all competitions.
Napoli have done well this season and although their one defeat has happened on the road, we are going to back them to avoid defeat in this one. We are going to back the draw in the match outright as the Juventus winning streak has to come to an end and Napoli are the team most likely to do it. Draw.

Juve powered their way to more points over the weekend to make it five wins from five in Serie A this season. Cristiano Ronaldo scored for the second consecutive league game for them. They get a home fixture against Bologna in midweek and with the visitors struggling in the bottom three, it could be more of the same from Juve. Read our Juventus v Bologna betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 24th, 2018 at 6:34 p.m.)
Juve have made it five wins from five in their Serie A title defence this season. Cristiano Ronaldo was on the scoresheet again for the second league game running for them as they got a couple of late goals against Frosinone on the weekend. So far they have averaged just over two goals per game this season in the top flight and a Juventus 2-0 correct score is at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 6:34 p.m.).
The Old Lady have scored at least two goals in all but one of their last ten league home fixtures. Juventus are now undefeated in 36 of their last 38 home games in the league and they have won nine of their last ten against Bologna in all competitions. It is some pretty strong form that they are carrying and Cristiano Ronaldo is the 15/8 first goalscorer option* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 6:34 p.m.).
Bologna are sat down in the bottom three in the table and they got their first win of the season over the weekend as they posted a 2-0 home win over Roma, which was actually a really good result for them. That was actually their first goals of the season as well after firing blanks in their first four games. Bologna have failed to score in six of their last seven away matches in the league and in all but one of their last nine away games, Bologna have seen under 2.5 goals. We are going to support that option for this game and under 2.5 goals, which would support our Juventus 2-0 pick, is at 7/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 6:34 p.m.). We really don’t see Bologna having a big impact in this game and can’t even see them getting on the scoresheet.
Juventus are on a four-match winning streak against Bologna and they have scored at least three goals in four of their last six games theme (W4 D2). They have scored exactly three goals in each of their last three home games against Bologna. Juventus are unbeaten since a 2-0 loss against Bologna back in 2011. Juventus have also collected a clean sheet in six of their last nine games against them.
Another win for Juventus is likely to be on the cards. We are going to settle on the 2-0 correct score option for them. The trend is more, but this is a busy run of games for Juventus and a comfortable 2-0 looks around the right mark.
