Inter Form & Team News

Inter had a spectacular season last year as they won the league title in some style with 12 points clear of their city rivals AC Milan. They had won 28 matches, drew seven and lost just three matches, accumulating 91 points in the process. They had scored the second highest number of goals with 89 goals, just one goal behind Atalanta. They had played six pre seaon matches, where they won five matches convincingly and won the other in a tense penalty shootout. In those six matches, they had scored 25 goals and conceded just two goals including five clean sheets. They would want to carry this form and momentum going into the new season of Serie A.

With 24 goals last season, Romelu Lukaku was the leading goal scorer for Inter. Even Lautaro Martinez also chipped in with 17 goals. Lukaku was the leading assist provider for them with 11 assists under his belt. They have let go of two of their star players in Romelu Lukaku and Acharf Hakimi to Chelsea and PSG respectively. They were also spot on in buying replacement for the released players with Edin Dzeko, Denzel Dumfries and Hakan Calhanoglu. They have signed these three for just nearly 14 Million Euros.

Our Tipster’s Angle

By considering the Inter’s domination over Genoa over the years, this could be a walk in the park for them. Also, with a rock solid Inter defense, they are highly likely not to concede any goal in this match. And also might end up scoring a lot of goals.

Tip 1: Total Goals Over 2.5

In the last six head to head matches, a total of 21 goals were scored at an average of 3.5 goals per match. Also, over 2.5 goals were scored in five of those six matches. In the last nine matches that Inter had played across competitions, over 2.5 goals were scored in as many as eight of those matches. Even in six of those nine matches, Inter alone had scored over 2.5 goals. Genoa on the other hand have seen over 2.5 goals in six of their last nine matches across competitions. So, over 2.5 goals could be a feature of this clash in Milan. And the odds available for the same is 1.54 at the Casumo sportsbook.

Tip 2: Inter -1.5

In the last six head to head matches, Inter has won all six matches and also have kept clean sheets in all six matches while scoring as many as 21 goals. Also, Inter have won all their last six matches by at least two goals. The last three head to head matches hosted by Inter ended in 3-0, 4-0 and 5-0 in favor of the hosts. Inter have successfully covered the spread in seven of the last nine matches that they have played across competitions. In the last five matches that Inter played recently in the pre season friendlies, they kept clean sheet in all five matches and covered the -1.5 spread in all five matches as well. So, it is very likely that, Inter will come out on top and cover the spread as well at 1.85 odds available at the Casumo sportsbook.


With that being said, Inter is more likely to open their account with all three points here at home. While Genoa will be hoping not to dent their goal difference so early in the season. Summarizing a couple of bets mentioned above:

  1. Total Goals Over 2.5 @ 1.54
  2. Inter -1.5 @ 1.85
