Keep reading to gain insights and make informed predictions about the potential outcomes of these matches. Buckle up and get ready for an action-packed weekend! alternativesRoma vs Verona | Saturday, January 20

Roma is going through a challenging phase, with no wins in their last three matches and a managerial upheaval. Jose Mourinho’s recent departure from the club has left a void yet to be filled, with names such as Antonio Conte, Graham Potter, and Daniele de Rossi being considered.

Despite this, the team’s home record remains impressive, with only one loss, three draws, and nine wins across Serie A and the Europa League. Their defensive prowess has been particularly impressive, conceding just four goals in the past 11 matches. The stats back this up, with the team allowing an average of only 0.61 xGA per match during this period.

On the other hand, Verona struggles in the offensive department, with an average of only 0.94 xG per match, the 4th fewest in the league. Their away record isn’t inspiring either, with just seven goals scored in ten games. However, they managed to limit their opponents, not allowing more than three goals to any team this season.

Given the current scenario, it seems that Roma can take advantage of Verona’s offensive struggles and secure a much-needed win. For those looking for a safe wager, check out the FanDuel Sportsbook, where Roma’s wins and under 3.5 goals are priced at even money. This could be a prudent bet, considering Verona’s trend of low-scoring games against top-tier sides away from home.

Frosinone vs Cagliari | Sunday, January 21

Frosinone comes into this match following a heavy 5-0 loss to Atalanta, bringing their defense into focus. The team has struggled to maintain a clean sheet, allowing at least two goals in their last five contests. Despite that, their offensive game seems robust on home ground, averaging 1.70 goals per match this season. Interestingly, Frosinone has seen Over 2.5 goals in eight of their home games, making it a team to watch for the BTTS + Over 2.5 combo prop.

Conversely, fresh off their win against Bologna, Cagliari seems equipped to get on the scoresheet. Their offense might not be their strongest suit on the road, with only six goals in ten away games, but their statistics against lower-ranked teams suggest considerable potential. They’ve averaged 1.23 xG per match against bottom-half teams, hinting at a likely goal against Frosinone.

However, with Cagliari conceding goals in nine straight-away matches after their 0-0 draw at Torino and both teams desperate for a win, this clash has all the ingredients for a high-scoring, open contest. For bettors, the combo prop of BTTS + Over 2.5 could offer value for this fixture.

Lecce vs Juventus | Sunday, January 21

Lecce will play host to Juventus on Sunday, Jan. 21, an encounter that promises to be a challenging game for the home team. Lecce has shown resilience on home turf with just two losses in ten matches this season, but their performance has been bolstered by overachieving their xG data, which doesn’t bode well in the long run. In contrast, Juventus has been in stellar form defensively. The Bianconeri have allowed only eight goals in their last 19 contests, with 11 clean sheets to their name.

On the offensive front, Juventus doesn’t need to rely heavily on their attack to win games due to their strong defense. The reverse fixture saw Lecce manage only two shots, suggesting they might struggle to penetrate Juventus’ defense again. Given these dynamics, betting on Juventus to secure another classic win seems wise. For the more conservative bettor, backing Under 3.5 goals could be profitable, considering Juventus’ tendency towards low-scoring games.
