Football Italia’s Susy Campanale takes you through the best Serie A tips of the week…

For more than 20 years, Susy Campanale has been at the forefront of Italian football coverage for Football Italia. With a unique level of experience and expertise covering Serie A, Susy casts an expert eye across the latest round of action and picks out the best Serie A tips of the week, exclusively with Eurotips.

Antonio Conte marches on towards the Scudetto, laughing off the complaints about his defend and counter approach. If it works, then why should he care?

That kind of solidity at the back would be a godsend for sides like Atalanta and Juventus, who can’t seem to stop leaking goals, which makes their head-to-head in Bergamo a fascinating prospect. At the same time, Napoli struggle to raise their game in the big fixtures and I see another very tight affair with Inter.

Although I was tempted to tip Torino, it has to be said that Roma have shown a surprising ability to grind out results even after their Europa League quarter-final with Ajax, so we look to a match Cagliari simply cannot afford to lose.

Thriller for third place

Atalanta vs. Juventus – Sunday April 18, Gewiss Stadium, Kick-off: 2.00pm

Watch live on Premier Sports/Streaming

These teams always put up a fascinating fight, let alone when they are going head-to-head for third place and potentially even more. When Atalanta’s last seven competitive games provided a total 27 goals and Juventus failed to keep a clean sheet in the same period, you can expect some entertainment, with Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel front and centre.

Tight Inter

Napoli vs. Inter – Sunday April 18, Stadio Maradona, Kick-off: 7.45pm

Inter have made it abundantly clear they have every intention of boring us to death on their way to this Scudetto. They’ll defend and counter against relegation strugglers Cagliari, let alone away to a Napoli side who will go all-out for the win. It ended 1-0 the last time they met and I wouldn’t be surprised at a repeat here. Gennaro Gattuso’s men rarely manage to raise their game for the big fixtures.

Cagliari’s last chance

Cagliari vs. Parma – Saturday April 17, Sardegna Arena, Kick-off: 7.45pm

Watch live on Premier Sports/Streaming

It’s still entirely possible, even likely, that both these teams will be relegated at the end of the season. However, of the two, Cagliari are the much stronger side, both in general and this weekend, taking injuries and bans into account. It’s probably going to be tight and ugly, but the Sardinians simply cannot afford to miss out on a victory here.

Best bet for Cagliari vs. Parma: Cagliari to win at 6/5 on 888 Sport
