Serie A Predictions, Picks, and Best Bets for Monday, June 22, 2020

Defending champion Juventus returns to action on Monday in one of three Serie A games taking place on June 22. There are countless top-flight clashes lined up in Italy over the coming weeks, so buckle up and enjoy the ride!

Here are Monday’s fixtures in full.

  • Lecce vs. AC Milan
  • Fiorentina vs. Brescia
  • Bologna vs. Juventus

Bottom-of-the-table Brescia will be hoping to claim a positive result in Florence, with Fiorentina still not safe from relegation. Milan visits lowly Leece, while Bologna hosts the league leader.

Keep reading for my predictions for every Serie A game on June 22. I also share the top betting picks for Monday’s matchups at the end of this post, so make sure you stick around for those.

AC Milan to Beat Lecce

It’s been another disappointing season for the red and black half of Milan. Believe it or not, the 18-time Serie A champion hasn’t finished in the top four since all the way back in 2012/13, and barring a miraculous turn of events, it doesn’t look like Stefano Pioli is going to be able to guide the club back into the Champions League this term.

However, a run of two defeats in nine games leading up to the stoppage has lifted Milan up from mid-table and into contention for a spot in next season’s Europa League. Victories over Cagliari, Udinese, Brescia, and Torino since the winter break have given the team hope, but Milan is still years away from competing with the country’s elite side once again.

Lecce currently occupies a relegation place, although that is not as bad as it sounds. Second-bottom SPAL is seven points behind the Wolves, and Lecce is level with seventeenth-place Genoa on 25 points. Sure, it’s been a poor campaign for the Wolves. But having won three of their previous five games, there is still hope.

Having said that, an embarrassing 7-2 defeat to Atalanta just days before the shutdown exposed Lecce’s weaknesses. Milan is nowhere near the force they once were, but Pioli’s men should be able to take advantage of Lecce’s weak backline.

Fiorentina to Beat Brescia

Fiorentina has to be one of the most inconsistent teams in Serie A this season. Manager Vincenzo Montella was sacked with the club sitting fifteenth, but new boss Giuseppe Iachini has only been able to lift the Florence outfit two places since taking over in December.

There have been minor improvements under Iachini, but the team has struggled for wins. Fiorentina has only lost two of their nine league games since Iachini took charge, but four draws during that period have prevented the club from steering clear of the drop zone altogether. Still, the visit of Brescia provides Fiorentina with the perfect opportunity to get some points on the board.

It’s safe to say that Brescia is destined for relegation. The Lombardy club is already on their fourth manager of the season and will resume the campaign nine points from safety. Youngster Sandro Tonali — who is wanted by just about every major European club — has been a bright spot in an otherwise gloomy season, but the midfielder won’t be able to save Brescia on his own.

Fiorentina hasn’t had a good campaign by any stretch of the imagination, but it feels like Brescia has already accepted relegation. Fiorentina is expected to claim all three points on Monday.

Juventus to Beat Bologna

At this stage of the season, Juventus usually has the title wrapped up. But the Bianconeri hasn’t had things all their own way in 2019/20. Yes, Maurizio Sarri’s men are still top of the table. But they will restart the campaign just one point ahead of second-place Lazio.

However, despite some rare company in the title race, Juventus is still enjoying a fantastic campaign. With three defeats in 26 league games this term and 11 victories from their previous 13 outings, Juve remains a force to be reckoned with.

Meanwhile, Bologna has continued to impress under Sinisa Mihajlovic. The former Milan boss guided the club to a respectable tenth-place finish last term, and a similar outcome is on the cards this time around. Three straight victories between January and February lifted the club to seventh, but a three-game winless run before the break saw Bologna drop back down into mid-table.

Bologna still has faint hopes of qualifying for Europe. But due to the congested nature of the Serie A standings, the club isn’t completely safe from relegation. Juventus should claim a fairly routine win at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.

Serie A Picks for Monday, June 22

I have chosen to feature bets from two of Sunday’s Serie A games that I believe offer excellent value.

Lecce vs. AC Milan – AC Milan to Win and Under 3.5 Goals (2.40)

Milan heads into this matchup as the clear favorite, and rightfully so. But odds of 1.57 for the away win don’t exactly get me excited. Considering that Milan is one of the lowest-scoring sides in the division, I recommend adding the under 3.5 goals market into the equation to significantly boost the odds.

It’s worth mentioning that only three teams have scored fewer Serie A goals than Milan in 2019/20. I’m confident that Pioli’s side will beat Lecce, but I don’t see it being a high-scoring victory.

Fiorentina vs. Brescia – Fiorentina to Win Half Time/Full Time (2.30)

I don’t think Brescia will be very motivated for this game. The bottom club has a mountain to climb in order to avoid relegation, and it feels like the three-month lay-off has only delayed the inevitable.

On the other hand, Fiorentina will be eager to hit the ground running when the campaign gets back underway. The home win is at 1.44, but I’m backing Fiorentina to fly out of the blocks and win both halves at the far more attractive price of 2.30.

There are still 12 full rounds of fixtures remaining in the 2019/20 Serie A season. If you plan to wager on the Italian top tier for the rest of the campaign, make sure you use the best soccer sportsbooks online.
