Juventus Certs To Collect Again, As Prohibitive Serie A Odds Reflect
Juventus look primed to continue their dominance of Italian football by lifting the Serie A trophy for an eighth consecutive season at the end of the 2018-19 campaign, writes Nick Dorrington. They are now unbackable favourites in the Serie A odds (see comparison tables above).
Juventus were pushed all the way by Napoli in last season’s title race but look set for a more comfortable run-in this time after opening up a sizeable advantage atop the table by going undefeated, with 17 wins out of 19, through the first half of the season.
Eight consecutive wins at the start of the campaign set the tone. Napoli have more or less maintained the pace they set last season. That has not been enough to compete with a Juventus side who even have a solid chance of beating their own Serie A record points total (under the 20-team format) of 102, set in the 2013-14 season.
The summer arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus brought more widespread attention to Serie A, whose ‘90s lustre faded in the wake of the Calciopoli match-fixing scandal early into the new millennium. While new viewers have not been treated to a particularly compelling title race, there are plenty of other interesting battles up and down the league.
Inter Milan are pretty comfortably placed to finish third, but behind them there is an intriguing scrap for the fourth and last Champions League qualifying place, with as many as four or five teams in the running.
Capital rivals Lazio and Roma are among them. Roma finished third last season but haven’t been quite as impressive this time around. Lazio, who missed out on the top four on the final day of last season, have improved sufficiently to close the gap between the teams to the point to which it is very difficult to separate them.
Milan came home sixth last season and after another summer of heavy investment have inched a little closer to a genuine top-four challenge. While they are certainly likely to be in with a shout up until the final weeks of the campaign, the two Roman clubs are probably still better-placed to last the distance.
So, perhaps, are Atalanta. They finished fourth in the 2016-17 season, and Gian Piero Gasperini continues to do excellent work at the helm of the Bergamo-based team. Very solid underlying statistics suggest they certainly shouldn’t be discounted. Indeed, at more favourable Serie A odds than some of the established names in the top-four race, they might represent a good outside wager.
If any of them are able to sort out their consistency issues, a challenger could even emerge from the likes of Fiorentina, Sampdoria and Torino.
At the other end of the table, Chievo are some way adrift at the bottom after accumulating just eight counting points during the first half of the campaign. While Crotone were able to pull off a miracle escape in the 2016-17 season after securing just nine points at the same stage, it is difficult to see Chievo replicating that despite an uptick in results since Domenico Di Carlo became their third coach of the campaign in mid-November.
Pre-season favourites in the Serie A relegation odds, Frosinone have also done little to provide any confidence that they will be capable of defying those expectations. That would likely leave just one relegation place for the league’s remaining eight teams to avoid.
A very solid first half of the season has probably given newly-promoted Parma sufficient breathing room to think they can avoid an instant demotion back to Serie B. An entertaining Sassuolo side can also be expected to finish much closer to the top 10 than the bottom three. Cagliari and Genoa, the latter now under the command of former Italy national team boss Cesare Prandelli, also have enough quality to avoid a relegation fight.
Udinese are on the cusp of that same classification, which will likely leave Bologna, Empoli and SPAL to battle it out against the drop. Empoli’s superior attack might just be enough to see last season’s Serie B champions extend their top-flight stay into a second year.
