If you need any more convincing punters, then read on as our football experts reveal individual reasons why each featured team in this treble is nailed on to win!
Genoa v Juventus
Scudetto holders and Serie A leaders Juve beat Genoa home and away last term en route to a third league title in a row. They also won away in the port city during the previous season, so make for worthy odds-on 4/9 favourites for another three points.
Midfield maestros Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal were both on target against Genoa in 2013/14. The former’s sharp dead ball brain means he should always be considered in the anytime market at 14/5.
Vidal, meanwhile, is back in favour and shorter at 7/4, because of his box-to-box brilliance and he netted last time out against Palermo. Prolific and recalled Argentina international striker Carlos Tevez is also an anytime threat at 21/20.
Roma v Cesena
Rudi Garcia’s Giallorossi are on a run of three straight wins against newly-promoted Cesena and have a 100 per cent home league record this term, which is why they are overwhelming odds-on 1/5 favourites for victory.
Club legends Francesco Totti and Daniele De Rossi have scored previously when paired with this opposition. Roma skipper Totti, who seems to get better with age, is a 3/1 shot to net the opener, while vice-captain De Rossi is a 14/5 chance in the anytime market.
Cagliari v AC Milan
The Rossoneri are on an incredible streak of 23 matches unbeaten (winning 18) against Sardinian side Cagliari since 1998. Based on that superb stat alone, Milan are magnificent value at 6/5 to beat them again.
Filippo Inzaghi, who currently coaches the San Siro giants, is among a scorers list for this fixture that reads like a who’s who of top talent to have plied their trade in Italy. Giampaolo Pazzini netted in this fixture last term, as Milan did the double over Cagliari, and is tempting at 5/1 to grab the last goal.
