Italian Serie A News, Results, Analysis and Features on Football Soccer

Fancy a flutter on the Italian footie this weekend? Good! I co-host the Italian Football FanCast which is the finest Italian football podcast on the world wide web, allow me to give you some predictions for this weekends fixtures, perhaps you’ll make some money out of it.


Juventus vs Roma – AWAY VICTORY

Oh dear oh dear, Juventus are officialy in crisis. Roma and Napoli have put them outside the top 4 and I expect Claudio Ranieri’s boys to turn the screw putting Juve into a whole world of pain on Saturday. Ranieri was unceremoniously sacked by the Bianconeri when he was doing a much better job than Ciro Ferrara, he will be looking for revenge. Luca Toni has taken the capital by storm, I expect him to have a good game and continue his quest for a place in Italy’s world cup squad.

Udinese vs Sampdoria – AWAY VICTORY
Sampdoria have squandered a fantastic start to the season and have been off colour recently. Maybe this is the perfect game for them to sort themselves out. Udinese are famously inconsistent, despite possessing Antonio Di Natale, one of Serie A’s most lethal hitmen. 2 points from there last 5 games is an awful return. Samp curiously have the same record but I believe have more quality. It’s time for them to show it. A player with a point to prove is Antonio Cassano, he hasn’t been at his magical best recently and is definately a player who can make a difference.

Siena vs Cagliari – AWAY VICTORY
Siena are bottom of Serie A and have had two tough visits to Milan, unluckily losing to Inter and being steamrollered by a Ronaldinho inspired rampant Rossoneri. A defeat could possibly see Alberto Malesani lose his job, which would be a shame as his team have tried to play football. Cagliari have been one of the surprise packages of the season and are looking strong. 18 points separate the sides, there is definately a gulf in class which will be seen on the day.

There are plenty of other tasty fixtures in Serie A, one of the Europe’s strongest leagues and some say the prettiest to watch. Whether your having a flutter or not, enjoy your calcio
