Expert previews and predictions for six Serie A matches on matchday 21.

Serie A's Matchday 21 promises thrilling football action with key fixtures that could reshape the league standings. As teams clash for dominance, we bring you expert betting tips and predictions, diving into the dynamics of the games.

Here are the previews and predictions for six Serie A matches scheduled for January 20-21:

1. Frosinone vs Cagliari (January 21)

Frosinone, currently 15th, is aiming to break their five-game losing streak. They've been stronger at home, with a record of five wins, two draws, and three losses. Meanwhile, 17th-placed Cagliari is on a three-match unbeaten run, but they struggle on the road, still seeking their first away win. The prediction is a win for Frosinone. 

2. Lecce vs Juventus (January 21)

Juventus, eyeing the top spot, faces Lecce, who has only won one of their last nine matches. Juventus has been strong defensively, allowing only eight goals in 19 matches, excluding a four-goal exception. Lecce has had difficulty scoring at home, and the prediction leans towards Juventus winning while keeping a clean sheet.

3. Salernitana vs Genoa (January 21)

Bottom-placed Salernitana, with the worst defence in Serie A, faces Genoa, undefeated in their last five matches thanks to a strong defence. Genoa, moving up the table, is expected to be too robust for Salernitana, making Genoa win the prediction.

4. Roma vs Verona (January 20)

Post-Mourinho, Roma under new manager Daniele De Rossi needs a win after their seventh league defeat. Despite a tough run of fixtures, Roma's history of scoring at home and the return of Paulo Dybala from injury boost their chances against a Verona team that has sold many key players. The prediction favours a Roma win with over 1.5 goals.

5. Udinese vs AC Milan (January 20)

AC Milan, unbeaten in the last five Serie A games, travels to face Udinese. The match is expected to be high-scoring, with both teams having a history of games with over 2.5 goals. While Udinese has drawn 12 times this season, they've struggled defensively, suggesting a prediction of over 2.5 goals for this match.

6. Empoli vs Monza (January 21)

Empoli, undergoing their third managerial change of the season, has not won a game since October and struggles offensively. New manager, Davide Nicola, is tasked with turning around their fortunes. Monza, on the other hand, is expected to challenge Empoli given their current form, making Monza the prediction to win this match.
