Inter Milan vs Lazio (Serie A)

Inter Milan and Lazio will face off at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza for the Serie A on 19th May 2024, with the match scheduled to start at 19:00 local time (SGT). 

Match Overview

  • Date: 19th May 2024
  • Time: 19:00 SGT
  • Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan
  • Teams: Inter Milan vs Lazio

Team Performance and Key Players

Inter Milan: The Nerazzurri are on a high after a massive 5-0 victory over Frosinone. Their home form at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza has been nothing but impressive. Inter have made Giuseppe Meazza a fortress and are therefore very unlikely to lose. The team was recently crowned Serie A champions and will look to finish the season on a high note. Defender Francesco Acerbi is expected to be the only absentee due to injury. Key player and World Cup winner Lautaro Martinez is pushing for a recall to the starting eleven, bolstering their attacking options.

Hakan Calhanoglu has been a standout performer for Inter Milan this season. The Turkish midfielder has been a menace with his vision and goal-scoring ability. Since he joined from high-flying Bayer Leverkusen, his creativity and set-piece expertise made him a crucial asset for Inter’s midfield.

Lazio, also known as the Biancocelesti, demonstrated their quality with a 2-0 win over Empoli in their last game. However, their chances of securing a Champions League spot still are slim. The return of in-form midfielder Matias Vecino to the starting lineup will be a boost. However, they will miss the services of Luis Alberto and Mario Gila, both sidelined due to injuries.

Injury Updates

  • Inter Milan: Francesco Acerbi (out), Lautaro Martinez (pushing for recall).
  • Lazio: Luis Alberto (out), Mario Gila (out), Matias Vecino (returning).

Predictions and Betting Tips

Inter Milan is a favorite to win this match due to their strong home form and overall superior performance this season. Lazio’s vanishing hopes for a Champions League spot give them a strong motive, but their injury concerns make them the underdogs.

Our Sports Betting Pick

Punters might believe betting on Inter Milan to win is a no-brainer, given their dominant home form and Lazio’s injury issues. However, they have already secured the championship, and their opponent still has a strong motive to perform well. We will go with a draw this time. 

Villarreal vs Real Madrid (La Liga)

Villarreal and Real Madrid will play in a La Liga match this weekend. The game will take place at Estadio de la Cerámica and kick off at 1 a.m. SGT on Monday.

Villarreal Team News

Marcelino’s team finished fifth in La Liga last season, but they are currently eighth with 51 points from 36 games.

Villarreal comes into this match after a 1-0 away win against Girona, following a 3-2 home victory over Villa and a 3-2 away loss to Celta de Vigo. They are expected to line up in a 4-4-2 formation with Filip Jörgensen in goal, supported by Adria Altimira, Eric Bailly, Yerson Mosquera, and Jorge Cuenca in defense. Bertrand Traore, Santi Comesana, Dani Parejo, and Alex Baena will likely form the midfield, with Goncalo Guedes and Alexander Sorloth as the forwards.

Real Madrid

Real Madrid recently reached the final of the UEFA Champions League after a dramatic win against Bayern Munich. There, they will face Borussia Dortmund. Meanwhile, they have already secured the La Liga title after amassing 93 points from 36 matches, 17 points ahead of their archrivals Barcelona. Real Madrid has been lethal in front of goal this season, scoring 83 goals and conceding only 22.

They approach this match after a 5-0 win over Alaves, a 4-0 victory over Granada, and a 2-1 win against Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-final. Real Madrid is expected to use a 4-3-1-2 formation with Thibaut Courtois in goal, defended by Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, Nacho, and Ferland Mendy. The midfield will likely feature Federico Valverde, Eduardo Camavinga, and Toni Kroos, with Jude Bellingham as the playmaker and Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo as the forwards.

Key Insights

  • Villarreal has won 4 of their last 6 La Liga matches.
  • Villarreal has both scored and conceded 60 goals in 36 matches this season.
  • Real Madrid has lost just 1 of their 36 La Liga games this season.
  • Real Madrid has conceded only 22 goals this season.
  • Jude Bellingham has scored 19 goals and provided 6 assists in 27 La Liga matches for Real Madrid.

Our Sports Betting Pick

Real Madrid has already clinched the La Liga title and is focused on the grand Champions League final at Wembley Stadium on June 1, 2024.  However, they will want to maintain momentum. Therefore, a narrow win for the Madrid side is expected. 


Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk (Boxing)

The highly anticipated fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk is scheduled for Saturday night. For boxing fans in Singapore, the match will start at 4:00 AM SGT on Sunday.

Tyson Fury Analysis

Known as the “Gypsy King,” Tyson Fury wants to become the undisputed world heavyweight champion. Fury, who holds the WBC title, has a record of 33 wins, 0 losses, and 1 draw, with 24 wins by knockout. In his last fight, former UFC champion Francis Ngannou knocked him down, but he managed to secure a victory by split decision. Fury’s strengths include his sheer size, reach, and boxing IQ. However, his recent performance against the much more inexperienced Ngannou raised questions about his vulnerability.

Oleksandr Usyk Analysis

Usyk holds the IBF, WBA, and WBO titles and enters the fight with a perfect record of 20 wins, 0 losses, and 0 draws, with 13 wins by knockout. He recently successfully defended his title against Daniel Dubois, stopping him in the ninth round. Usyk’s strengths lie in his agility, footwork, and tactical approach. He has adapted well to the heavyweight division despite moving up from cruiserweight, creating a scary record with zero defeats.

Our Sports Betting Pick

The fight will be closely contested. If Fury can leverage his size and maintain pressure, he has a good chance of overpowering Usyk. However, if Usyk can effectively use his footwork and outmaneuver Fury, he could secure a victory. Given the expert opinions, a slight edge might be given to Fury due to his physical advantages, even though he is still reeling from his recent loss. 


Oklahoma City Thunder vs Dallas Mavericks (NBA)

The second round of the 2023-24 NBA playoffs continues, with the Oklahoma City Thunder hosting the Dallas Mavericks in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals.

Thunder vs. Mavericks – Analysis and Betting Trends

The Thunder started their postseason with five consecutive wins, including a 117-95 victory over the Mavericks in the opener. However, they lost Games 2 and 3, requiring a road win to regain home-court advantage. They achieved this with a 100-96 win in Game 4, tying the series.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led OKC with 34 points on 14-for-27 shooting, adding eight rebounds, five assists, two steals, and two blocks. Chet Holmgren scored 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds, hitting six of nine shots. Lu Dort, who has been defending Luka Dončić, contributed 17 points and eight rebounds. To secure the win, the Thunder overcame an 11-point halftime deficit with a 57-42 second-half scoring advantage.

Coach Mark Daigneault highlighted the team’s resilience: “There’s nothing comfortable about playoff games. I thought our ability to endure the early punches and not get back in the game for a long time was big time. In the fourth, the offense turned for us.”

The Mavericks missed a major opportunity. They led by double digits at halftime, 14 points in the third quarter, and eight points in the final frame but failed to close the game.

Our Sports Betting Pick

With the stage set for this crucial Game 7, betting trends favor the Thunder to win by 4.5 points, with the total score expected to stay under 212.5 points.
