Serie A Matchday 23 Predictions

Inter win to nil (-125)

Inter now have the second-best defensive record in Serie A this season after conceding just one goal in their last eight matches.

Their 0-0 draw with Atalanta brought their nine-game winning streak to an end, but they were tired after their extra-time victory over Juventus in the Supercoppa Italiana a few days earlier, and they should now return to winning ways.

The score finished 2-0 to Inter when these teams met in Venice earlier this season and Simone Inzaghi's men should be capable of a similar result this weekend.

Venezia have the second-lowest goals tally in Serie A this season and their expected goals figure of 19.76 shows they do not create enough chances, so Inter should win this and keep yet another clean sheet.

Atalanta (+120)

Lazio are now just seven points behind Atalanta in the Serie A table after winning three of their last five games.

However, they have a poor home record against Gian Piero Gasperini's men. It finished 4-1 to Atalanta when these teams met at the Stadio Olimico last season, and Atalanta have not lost there since 2017.They are ruthless on the counterattack, which makes them a very dangerous team away from home, when the impetus is on the opposition to attack.

As such, Atalanta have the best away record in Serie A this season, with nine wins, two draws, and zero defeats from 11 games. They should overwhelm a weak Lazio defense.

Napoli win to nil (-120)

Napoli are the only team in Serie A with a better defensive record than Inter this season. They beat Bologna 2-0 on Monday and their previous game was a 1-0 victory over Sampdoria.

That has reignited Napoli's title challenge. Star striker Victor Osimhen is now back from a nasty facial injury that kept him out since November, and that should give the club a boost.

Salernitana are bottom of the Serie A table, with 16 defeats from 21 games. They have only scored 13 times this season, which is the lowest tally in the league, and they lost 1-0 to Napoli earlier in the campaign.
