Fiorentina vs. Spal
Sunday, August 02, 2020 – 12:00 PM EDT
Spal were promoted in Serie A in 2016 and they are now returning to Seria B. They are expected to record their 28th defeat in 38 games before going back. In their 1st year in the Italian top-flight league (season 2017/18) they finished 3 points above the relegation zone and in the 2nd year (2018/19) they finished 4 points above the red zone. Last year they saved themselves in the last 4 rounds of the season winning 9 points in 4 games. This season is over for them sitting last in the standings with just 20 points earned in 37 games. They have the worst attack in the league with just 26 goals scored in 37 games winning just 5 games in the process.
On the other side, Fiorentina will be looking to cement a top half finish as they are sitting 10th in the standings with 46 points. Their Serie A odds opened up at -191 with Bovada. They are equal on points with Parma and Bologna and have just 1 point above Cagliari. They destroyed Bologna in the last round with Federico Chiesa scoring a hat-trick. His future looks set to be far from Fiorentina according to reports from several Italian news outlets. First on the list: Juventus. La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that La Viola have told Juventus they only want to negotiate a player plus cash deal for their striker.
We expect an easy away win as the difference in quality between the 2 teams is huge.

Parma vs. Lecce
Sunday, August 02, 2020 - 02:45 PM EDT
Lecce are still fighting for survival as they came behind to beat Udinese 2-1 in the midweek round while their direct opponents for a Serie A spot, Genoa, were trashed 5-0 by Sassuolo. Genoa are only 1 point clear of Lecce as they host Verona in their final fixture on the season. Lecce have the worst defense in the league with 81 goals conceded in 37 games. The 3 points are vital for Lecce but not only they must win this match, but they need Genoa to drop points against Verona. It will be very difficult, but hope dies last and we expect them to give their best and do their part of the job. Lecce's opening line with 5Dimes was at -156.
On the other side, Parma finished 14th last season on their return to Serie A but look set to improve this term, with the club potentially aiming to finish to their highest spot in the Italian top flight league since 2014. They have a decent squad with young and talented players. We don’t expect them to make it easy for Lecce, but we expect them to fight for the win and finish as high as possible. We expect them to find many gaps in Lecce’s defense who are forced to open up and attack from the 1st minute of the game so this should easily go over 2.5 goals.
