Serie A Round 17 Previews

Inter Milan vs Udinese
Inter Milan were able to get a positive result in the Derby d’Italia but another tough match of its them in the form of a fresh Udinese outfit. After having been able to come away from the shadows of AC Milan’s spending spree in the summer, Inter Milan are starting to make a tilt for the title. Even though there have been some disappointing results in the last couple of weeks, Inter Milan have been the team to beat of late. Udinese will be providing a tough test then their league position suggests, as the team has been going through a good run of form of late.

Torino vs Napoli
After having surprisingly beaten Lazio in the latest league match, Torino are coming into the game with plenty of zing behind them. Napoli have been going through a stuttering spell and it has led to a drop into the second place. The team have to recover quickly in order to avoid missing out on the league title once again. Recent mediocre results have allowed Inter Milan to go top of the table. After having dominated the campaign for most of the season, Napoli appear to be suffering from the options of key players. This will be the biggest test of Napoli in the coming weeks.

Hellas Verona vs AC Milan
Hellas Verona aim to become the latest team to beat AC Milan. In the midweek Coppa Italia match, the two teams came up against each other. Even though Milan were able to rest a number of key players in that cup match, it would have been still competitive for Milan. The was a managerial change at Milan in the last few weeks but it is yet to take its shape and form of positive results. Hellas Verona appear to be going down to the second division if the points tally remains as far as before. The biggest advantage for Hellas Verona maybe home advantage of the game.

Bologna vs Juventus
Juventus are in danger of losing their stranglehold on the league title as the club continues to trail Napoli and Inter Milan when it comes to the league position. Juventus certainly need to fear against this opponent, as they were able to get points against Inter Milan in the recent league game. Dropping more points is not the solution for Juventus in order to catch the leaders, while Bologna come into the match looking to make headlines with such high-profile scalps. Yet, the team are stuttering in the bottom half. More than just draws, Bologna need to pick up victories in bulk numbers.
