What you need to know about the Italian Serie A
Serie A is the top Italian football league. Every season, it sees the best 20 clubs in the country compete to win the Italian championship since 1898. The serie A is exciting and probably the most unpredictable of the top 5 championships. We’ve summarised the main key facts and football tips for you.
Key facts about the Italian football league
Long regarded as the least spectacular championship in the early 2000s, the Italian football league has evolved in recent years. Studies of the last few years have shown that it has even become the most prolific competition with an average of 2.95 goals per game. A consistent figure which demonstrates that the new philosophy on the boot is turned towards the offensive.
Regarding the results, the 1-1 and 2-1 are the most common scores with nearly 11% of the matches ending up in each of those results. Finally, note that studies also showed that 31.5% of games in Italy usually end with away wins, against 21% in draws and 47.5% with home wins.
Serie A football tips
One of the interesting figures you should keep in mind when placing a bet on the Serie A is the number of games ending up with at least one goal from the visiting team. During the last few seasons this represented as much as 65.3% of the games, more than in any other European championship. A trend confirmed by close to 6 out of 10 games ending up with at least one goal scored by each of the two teams.
This Serie A’s unique specificity makes it the perfect championship to bet on +2.5 goals per game – which materialised in 56.4% of the games in the season 2016-2017!
A fantastic opportunity given the odds this type of bet can offer.
Finally, note that close to 1/4 of goals are usually scored after the 75th minute, a bet which is usually offered by bookies around 1.80.
