Inter Milan Face Lecce In Serie A Showdown
While the Premier League may have been underway a few weeks ago, the rest of Europe is only just starting to catch-up. As such, this weekend has served as the reintroduction of Serie A to the world as Italian teams across the division attempt to make a statement. The game we’re going to be taking a look at today will be contested between Inter Milan and Lecce, which is pretty easily one of the biggest David vs Goliath encounters of recent years. Either way, we’re intrigued to see what happens at the San Siro.
Inter are widely considered to be one of the most intriguing teams in Europe this season, following a transfer window in which they’ve shown interest in a series of big names – signing quite a few of them in the process. In terms of team news the expectation is that Diego Godin will miss out through a muscular injury, which could leave a pretty significant hole at the back for them. In terms of debuts we are set to see Stefano Sensi, Nicolo Barella and Romelu Lukaku all make their presence known to the Inter fans as they begin a brand new chapter for the club.
Lecce were promoted as a result of finishing in second place in Serie B last season, and while they aren’t being given much of a chance whatsoever, momentum is an important thing in this game. Plus, nobody really expects anything from them here anyway, so anything they can achieve will be viewed as a bonus. The club are set to add a few new faces with more experience to their squad before the window closes, but with no major injury concerns to worry about, Diego Farias and Gianluca Lapadula are expected to start up top.
Inter Milan vs Lecce Betting Prediction
We’re excited to see what Lecce can bring to the table here, but we can’t imagine they’ve got enough in the tank to even remotely trouble Inter Milan across 90 minutes. There’s a very good chance that Inter could be challenging for the title this season, and if that proves to be the case, they need to put together a convincing win here. We think they’ll take a little while to get into their rhythm, potentially even all the way through until half time, and then they’ll come out firing before putting at least two or three goals past the newly promoted side.
