Serie A has been shredding its defensive reputation over the last few years, but this campaign is a real highlight with some fantastic attacking talents across Italy’s top flight. With the league’s strikers in fine form, we think there are a few strong candidates to score in this weekend’s biggest games.
We’re casting an eye across Sunday’s action, looking at four of the six games which feature our picks to score anytime. On top of those individual selections, we are going with a fourfold anytime goalscorer accumulator, which can be found at 10.5/1 with BetVictor.
Juventus vs Sassuolo – 11:30am, Premier Sports 2
Of course, that suits Maurizio Sarri, who wants a team who can share out the goals. He’s trying to get his team to click like his Napoli side, who had threats all across the pitch. Of course, they still need a focal point in attack, but it needs to be a player who is perfect for their new style. Sarri is getting the best out of players like Gonzalo Higuain, while he’s seen Paulo Dybala produce some brilliant football. The Argentine is shining under Sarri, with three goals in three games. He’s stepping up in a big way, so Dybala is our first tip to score.
Lazio vs Udinese – 2pm
Immobile has scored seven times in his last seven meetings with Udinese, while the forward has scored seven times in his last six club games. We expect Immobile to add to his brilliant record so far, especially against a side who are looking far too weak at the back. The striker has only failed to score once across his last 11 matches for Lazio, so we think he’s worth backing to score on Sunday.
Inter Milan vs SPAL – 2pm, Premier Sports 2
Martinez and Lukaku combined well in their midweek Champions League win, while the Argentine has played a key role in helping Lukaku to make a strong start. The Belgian has 10 goals to his name in Serie A. He’s scored seven of those in his last six Serie A games, so we are backing Lukaku to build on his brilliant start at San Siro. He’s known as a player who thrives against the weaker sides, while he won’t find as many as bad as SPAL.
Napoli vs Bologna – 5pm, Premier Sports 2
Mertens has scored 11 league goals against Bologna. He’s only one of four players to have scored more than 10 goals against a single opponent in Serie A. To make things even more impressive, he has scored those goals in his last six appearances against Bologna. The forward has scored in each of those six matches, so we think he’s a great pick to score against a Bologna side who can’t stop leaking goals. They’ve let in 1.8 goals per game on the road, so we’re going with Mertens to score any time in this clash.
