Serie A Preview

The Serie A action continues this weekend and all eyes will be on Turin on Friday, as Torino welcome Frosinone to the Stadio Olimpico.

More woe for Frosinone

Il Toro came home ninth last season and have endured an inconsistent start to the campaign, winning just twice. The most recent of those positive results came last weekend, as they triumphed 1-0 at Chievo and Walter Mazzarri will be keen to make home advantage count.

Frosinone’s second trip to Serie A has been tough to date, taking just one point from their seven games and they currently sit 19th. That solitary point came against Bologna in August and there has been little to smile about since.

One goal all season does not bode well for Il Canarini and it is no surprise that Torino are just 1.33 for the result. A draw can be backed at 5.15, while those looking for a surprise may look to back the away victory at 10.75.

With home advantage on their side, it seems tough to look past Mazzarri’s men. They have managed just six goals in seven games and in a tight affair, the home victory to zero at 2.00 seems the right answer.

No Udine worries for Juve

Despite being without the suspended Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus had no issues in midweek as they crushed Young Boys 3-0 in the Champions League.

Saturday sees them return to domestic action with a trip east along the A4 to 14th place Udinese.

The Zebrette are still adapting to life under Julio Velazquez and have won just twice this season, losing 2-1 in their last two outings. A 2-1 win for Juventus is 9.25 but despite having a perfect record this season, things have not always been easy for the Bianconeri.

Juve have been drawing at half-time before going on to win after 90 minutes in six of their last eight in all competitions, and that could be a market to look for here at 3.85.

The Bianconeri have not lost at the Stadio Friuli since 2010 and while they may not have it all their own way, a 10th win from as many competitive fixtures this season should be on the agenda.

Clean sheet kings Genoa can do it again

Genoa have a happy knack of beating the teams below them at home and often do so keeping a clean sheet.

In fact, they have won each of their three outings at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris this season. The last two of those have come to zero and contributed to them sitting sixth in Serie A.

Sunday’s opponents Parma have shown encouraging signs on their return to the top flight after a tumultuous couple of decades, winning three of their last four. They too have proved defensively adept, not conceding in any of those victories and provide value at 4.45 to claim the points.

A tight game appears most likely in Liguria, with under 1.5 goals having the potential to tempt some punters at 3.20 but just like on Friday, the home win looks the best option.

Genoa are incredibly reliable at home and a third straight victory to zero on their own turf tempts at 3.60.
