All Eyes on Matches that can Decide Serie A Winners this SundayPublished April 18, 2021 by Florin P
Current leaders and the runners-up try to make a decisive push for the trophy in the strongest European football leagues.
Arguably the most exciting matches of the day will be played in the Italian first division. The hopes of some teams chasing an elusive title will be shattered on this day, while others will stay in the race. At the bottom of the standings, the stakes are just as high, as the specter of relegation is looming large.
Napoli Poses the Last Major Challenge to Inter Milan
Inter Milan have all but secured the trophy and they have a single major obstacle to overcome. Napoli a serious contender for this team but even a defeat on the road will not jeopardize their chances. The hosts are incredibly motivated to pick up all three points, as they need victory to secure a Champions League berth. They will throw everything they’ve got at the visitors and if they win, punters will cash in on odds of 2/1. Inter would settle for draw, but a victory for the visitors is priced at 13/10 by bet365 Sports.
Torino Aims another Upset against Tired AS Roma
Torino effectively shattered the chances of Juventus to win the championship this season. They will try to cause another upset by preventing AS Roma from winning on the road. Even though they are a mediocre team the season, they are well-positioned to deny the visitors the three points. That’s because AS Roma played in the Europa League midweek and will have a hard time rebounding for this fixture. The odds on the hosts to win stand as 23/10, while bet365 Sports offers even odds on the visitors to prevail on Sunday.
Last Hope for Juventus and Atalanta Title Hopes
Juventus and Atalanta play a game that is more likely to determine the final hierarchy on the podium. That’s because Inter Milan are simply too far away and the odds of overtaking them are slim. Even so, the two teams involved will throw everything they’ve got to claim victory and won’t settle for a draw. Not surprisingly, 888 Sport offers identical odds of 17/10 on either team to prevail. The head to head record favors Juventus, but Atalanta is the team in better form, so this match can literally go either way.
AC Milan Takes on Genoa Ready to Secure Second Place
AC Milan have allowed their sizable advantage to go to waste and have only theoretical chances of winning the trophy. As long as they are still in the race, they will keep trying and the first proof of commitment will come on Sunday. In the first match of the day scheduled at 11:30 AM UK time, they take on Genoa. The visitors haven’t won consecutive games since January and are priced at 5/1 by 888 Sport. The same bookmaker offers significantly lower odds of 1/2 on the home team to pick up a win.
