Josip Ilicic, Cristiano Ronaldo, Joao Pedro Galvao, and Romel Lukaku will undoubtedly prove themselves in the fight for the title of the best player of the season.

Bookmakers, experts, and fans make forecasts for the games and results of the championship, based not only on personal preferences. Predictions on Serie A are taken into account today:
- the championship’s previous seasons results — the winner, the number of titles for the team, the total number of goals;
- the matches’ statistics for the current season, the teams’ position in the standings table, the history of the confrontation between the teams;
- the specifics of the coaches’ strategy and tactics — how fast the clubs start to attack, at what point in the championship the players lose form, whether the team can play under constant pressure, in what period of the match the team is more active;
- the position of the top players, the nuances of their game;

On our website, soccer forecasts Serie A combines critical points of analysis, information from insiders, assessment of bookmakers. Based on last season’s data, we have analyzed the main betting markets in Serie A for this season.
Number of goals scored in the match
All three last seasons of Serie A show an increase in performance. The championship bypasses all European leagues by the average number of goals per game — 2.96. In many ways, this high figure is due to the motivation of Italian players. All team members, regardless of the position in the standings, seek to beat the opponent at any cost.
The highest rates in “more / less than 2.5” or total are likely to show derby and matches between favorites of the games: Inter, Milan, Juventus, Lazio, and Napoli. We recommend you to check the tournament table before placing a bet of this kind. There is a high probability that a market bet “more / less than 2.5” will be successful in matches between teams that are at the same level (at the top or bottom of the table — not so important).
The average score in a match
Five seasons in a row, the most frequent outcome of matches in Serie A was 1-1. It was repeated in 227 games. Last season, 11.6% of matches were played with a 1-1 score.
From 2015 to 2020, 182 Serie A games ended with a score of 2-1, 171 games — with a score of 1-0.
The statistics are not always able to bypass the unpredictable Italian football, but you can rely on these figures when choosing a betting market.
Home and away matches
44% of games in the season Serie A 2018 / 2019 were won in home games, 28% — away. The trend of home wins has been maintained for the last five years. Thus, in about 6 out of 10 games played at home, the team wins. Of course, this figure depends a lot on the team experience and its squad, but statistically, it can be taken into account in the forecast of the match.
Key and stellar players
Italian football also has a strong tendency to win the team when the top player enters the field. Pay attention to the team lineup, injuries of players previously received, at what point in the match the coach usually leads the most influential players.
In our forecasts, we always take this point into account, because a star player is able to pull a team out of stress on the field.
The best team in Serie A
It’s one of the favorite chances for Nigerian fans. Prediction of the final results of the championship or the top four is based on the team’s motivation, its shape against the background of other European competitions in which it participates, the main roster, and potential replacements.
The current holder of the Juventus title has already become the champion of Italy 8 times in a row. It is reasonable to assume that this season too, the club hopes to save a series of victories and get the cup for the 36th time. Besides, the team plays in the Champions League together with Napoli, Atalanta. Milan and Internationale play in the Europa League in parallel with Serie A.
This year the experts are inclined to win Juventus but do not deny the severe opposition from Inter Milan and Napoli.
Choose your betting market based on the highest probability of forecast, bookmakers’ analysis, and their conditions. An additional opportunity to predict the results is a computer prediction. The computer analyzes the results of previous matches of the team and provides a statistically sound forecast. In such a prediction, pay attention to the criteria that the computer analyzes. It must take into account not only the winning and losing statistics and technical details of the game, but also additional parameters. The more comprehensive the data coverage of the computer, the more accurate the forecast is.
