Inter a different team at home

However, despite Inter having just one win from their last six outings in all competitions, their home form has been sensational, and this could play a huge part in proceedings on Wednesday night.

The Nerazzurri have won their last six league matches at the Giuseppe Meazza with the last five all coming at the concession of no goals, leaving an Inter win to nil a tempting price at 4.35.

Goals have been hard to come by between these two sides with the last three meetings producing just one strike, so backing under 2.5 goals at 1.90 looks to be a smart bet.

Juve to land Boxing Day punch

Defending champions Juventus face a tricky trip to Atalanta on Boxing Day before the action concludes when Inter play host to title-challengers Napoli.

It has been a near-perfect title defence from Juventus so far with 16 wins and a draw recorded from their 17 league matches, and that impressive start has seen the Old Lady open an eight-point lead at the top.

Max Allegri’s men, who are just 1.06 favourites to lift the Serie A trophy, have again built their success on a rock-solid backline this season and only conceded eight goals in the league so far – the second-best defensive record in Europe’s top-five leagues behind only Liverpool.

Defence key for Juve

Juventus’ last six league victories have come to nil – the most recent a 1-0 success at home to Roma – and you may feel there is some value in backing the visitors at 2.70 to win to nil at Atalanta on Wednesday.

The league leaders’ are also on a 21-game unbeaten run away from home, with five of their last six wins on the road coming at the concession of no goals at all, and it looks hard to back against their price of 1.83 to claim the spoils once again.

Red-hot Ronaldo the one to watch

Looking at potential goalscorers for the Old Lady, it is hard to ignore the in-form Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portugal international has scored seven goals from his last six away matches and he has 11 in total for the season, leaving him second in the league’s overall scoring charts.

Atalanta will be hoping to spoil the party and they have shown decent form in recent weeks, with two victories – against Udinese and Lazio – picked up from their last three outings.

La Dea’s recent home form also makes for good reading with three wins from four, and they could be worth a double-chance punt at 2.05, having drawn the last two league matches against Juve at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.

Napoli to endure Milan frustrations

The final Boxing Day game kicks off at 7:30pm with Inter playing host to second-place Napoli. Carlo Ancelotti’s men will likely find themselves 11 points adrift at the start of the game and that gap could remain the same by the end of the 90 minutes.

Napoli, who are 7.50 to lift the title, have won their last four Serie A matches – scoring eight and conceding just once – and that has extended their unbeaten league run to an impressive 10 games.

Their away results also make for good reading with four straights wins picked up on the road, and the price of 2.70 for the visitors to make it five on the bounce appears to provide some value.
