AC Milan At The Top
When AC Milan defeated Inter, nobody thought that win would change the leader board as it has. AC now sits in the top position ahead of Inter Milan with just two points. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic back in the team and Olivier Giroud on the attack, the team is all but perfect.
AC Milan will be difficult to beat this season. Their next game will be an away game against Cagliari, and it is sure to be an action-packed game with the odds firmly in Milan’s favour, but you can use Pick6 – Predict Correct Scores to make your predictions and place bets.
Juventus Is Not Out Yet
Juventus sit in the fourth position with 62 points, there is only 6 points difference between them and the leaders AC Milan. We say only because anything is possible even though they are fourth. Juventas are real contenders for the title, they have won the cup for four seasons, and they are consistent, if nothing else.
At the beginning of this campaign, they were sitting at the top of the league with 19 points after playing 9 games. We would love to confidently say that Juventas can easily win the next eight games. But this team is not the Juventus of old, not the Juventas who won the 2017 season even with Max Allegri back at the helm.
On top of that, they have been plagued by injuries since the start of the season. We hope Juventas can give us some of that spitfire playing we know them for and climb up the rankings again despite all the doom and gloom.
Napoli, The Dark Horses
Napoli has been impressive this season, not only in Serie A but also in the Champions League, with an excellent performance against Manchester City and Villarreal. With Marek Hamsik, Edinson Cavani, and Gokhan Inler in top form, they are ticking all the right boxes.
New coach Walter Mazzarri will want to make a name for himself, and what better way to do that than snatching the Scudetto from AC Milan’s reach. This is a squad Diego Maradona himself would have been proud of. Even if Napoli doesn’t win this season’s Scudetto, it is still refreshing to see them with the top contenders.
Inter Milan’s Fading Star
Simon Inzaghi’s side now has to claw back to the number one spot. Looking at their opponents’ list, we hope that Simon has a few aces up his sleeve. After their loss in the derby, Simons boys seem to have lost their confidence in the early stages of this campaign. They need some big wins to lift their spirits and get them back on the winning track again.
With only two points behind AC Milan, so should they win and not concede any goals against Spezia and AC Milan lose 2-0 to Genoa, we would see a new leader on the board on Saturday morning.
Upcoming Fixtures To Note
Spezia play Inter Milan at 19:00
Milan takes on Genoa at 21:00
Cagliari vs Sassuolo 12:30
Udinese vs Empoli 14:30
Napoli vs Roma 19:00
With Roma waiting in fifth place, any slip up from the top four teams will give them a place in the top four or top three. With players like Giroud, Ibrahimovic, and Osimhen in top form and playing stellar football, the next fixtures will be action-filled and exciting. Napoli’s Osimhen has declared they will fight till the end, and we are sure the other teams echo the same fighting spirit.
If the rankings were to remain, we would be in for a derby final. It’s still too early to predict the final yet, but the final on 22nd May could indeed be down to the wire.
