BOLOGNA – SIENA 1(0:0.25)AH @ 1.90 + Di Vaio Anytime goal @ 2.90 2/10
Bologna lost the last three matches and with this negative trend they collected seven defeat in the last nine matches. For Emiliani it’s time to return to the win. The next match will see Bologna challenges with the Siena, another relegation candidate.
In the last match against Roma Bologna played a good match, in spite of the defeat, they had some good occasion to keep at least a point but two penalties against close them all the possibilities.
Siena won against Lazio an important match to continue their run for the safety, two points divide them from the last safe position (occupied by Bologna).
Both trainers will recover important players, for Mihajlovic Moras and Valiani should be in the initial XI while Giampaolo has to choose the attack line.
These are the possible line ups:
Bologna (4-3-1-2): Antonioli; Zenoni, Britos, Moras, Lanna; Mingazzini, Mudingayi, Amoroso; Bombardini; Marazzina, Di Vaio.
Siena (4-3-1-2): Curci; Zuniga, Portanova, Brandao, Del Grosso; Codrea, Vergassola, Galloppa; Kharja; Calaiò, Maccarone.
An home win is possible here (Di Vaio should return to score ), my choise is 1(0:0.25)AH 6/10
In Rome it’s derby time. This match is fundamental for the Capitale, it’s a very hot day, a win here for one of two teams can give a sense to the season.
After a good series of win, Lazio is now at the third defeat in a row and an eventually positioning in the Uefa place is become very difficult, against Siena Lazio highlighted their character. This team have great potentiality but too often his players perform lazy match; their attack line is one of the strongest in the serie A scenario but at the end they scored less then 40 goals.
Rome won against Bologna but didn’t convince at all, two penalties made easier their match but they showed once again how Totti is fundamental for this match.
For Lazio only Inzaghi should be out for this match and for the match Rossi seems to have intention to put his team on the field ina a 4-4-2 configuration.
On the other hand for Roma will miss Cicinho, Aquilani and Vucinic while Totti is in a strong doubt due the knee injury (50% is the possibility to see him on the field).
The possible line ups could be:
Lazio (4-4-2): Muslera; Lichtsteiner, Siviglia, Rozenhal, Kolarov; Brocchi, Ledesma, Matuzalem, Foggia; Pandev, Zarate.
Roma (4-2-3-1): Doni; Motta, Mexes, Panucci, Riise; Brighi, De Rossi; Taddei, Perrotta, Baptista; Menez.
For me Roma is the better team on the field but the derby is a strange match, my idea is that Roma should play without Totti and for this eason I think that Lazio could finish the first half in advantage. In this condition Totti should play in the second half and, as usual, Rome will benefit from the presence of “Capitano” recovering the match.
These are my choices
1ht / Xft @ 12 1/10
1ht/ 2 ft @ 35 1/10
Both teams will score? Yes @ 1.76 6/10
Napoli-Atalanta 1@ 1.95 8/10
Napoli needs points here, no other way if not a win. Donadoni changed some things in the squad but, in my opinion, Napoli is still far from the fantastic team we saw in the first part of season.
The strange is that when on the bench there was Reja he had a lot of alternative solution in terms of players but he put always the same men, now with a coach without a close vision there are a lot of injured: Gargano, Maggio, Aronica, Iezzo, Contini for this match.
Atalanta away from home continues to destroy the very good home trend, 9 points in 14 matches. The last internal defeat against Fiorentina highlighted the not good moment for the Del Neri’s team, 4 points in the last 6 matches is a very poor win for this team.
The latest news says: Lavezzi and Blasi will be available for the match while Gargano, Maggio, Aronica, Iezzo, Contini are all out; Ferreira Pinto, Coppola, Cerci, Peluso are out for Atalanta; Cigarini and Guarente are available while Doni could be on the field.
Napoli (3-5-2): Navarro; Santacroce, Cannavaro, Rinaudo; Grava, Pazienza, Blasi, Hamsik, Mannini; Zalayeta, Lavezzi.
Atalanta (4-4-1-1): Consigli; Garics, Talamonti, Manfredini, Bellini; Defendi, Guarente, Cigarini, Padoin; Doni; Floccari.
Considering the latest matches played by Napoli I think (hope) that an home win is probable.
Lecce-Sampdoria 1(0:0)AH @ 1.88 6/10 + Over @ 2.25 4/10
The situation for Lecce is very hard, 24 points, two less than the last position available for the safety. If we exclude Reggina and Torino, all the direct concurrent for the survival are in good form and the threshold for the safety is growing up match after match. In this contest the match against Sampdoria is of fundamental importance to stay in the relegation battle.
Sampdoria is a lunatic team, they alternate important to a very poor matches and above all on the road this team have demonstrate to be weak, only two wins in 14 matches until now.
For this match Mazzarri will have to solve problem in the defensive line where Raggi and Campagnaro (two important players) will be out.
For Lecce shouldn’t be changes in the last week team with the only exception of Castillo in the attack line.
Lecce (4-3-1-2): Benussi; Angelo, Fabiano, Esposito, Ariatti; Munari, Giacomazzi, Vives; Caserta; Castillo, Tiribocchi.
Sampdoria (3-5-2): Castellazzi; Gastaldello, Lucchini, Accardi; Padalino, Sammarco, Palombo, Franceschini, Pieri; Cassano, Pazzini.
An home win here and a Over is my choices.
Chievo-Milan 1(0.75:0) @ 1.75 5/10
