Spal vs Inter Milan – Serie A: Spal is currently on the relegation zone, sitting in 18th place with only 16 points.
This team has returned to the Serie A this season, after several years where they didn’t take part in this competition.
Their task of staying on this division will not be easy at all, since they lack collective quality, especially on defence, since they have already conceded 39 goals in 21 matches.
On the attack, things aren’t so bad, since they have 22 goals scored, mainly thanks to their best player Mirco Antenucci, who has scored 4 goals on their last 6 matches.
On the last 11 games, the team only got 1 win, getting 5 draws and 5 losses on the other matches. Therefore, in this match they are expected to be audacious offensively, but with a lot of difficulties to stop the opposing attack.
Inter is in 4th place with 43 points, only having a 3-points advantage over the powerful Lazio that occupies the 3rd place.
Right now, the team is on its worst streak of results, being winless for 6 consecutive matches, including cup matches.
Despite that, my perspective also looks onto their opponents and the truth is that Inter played against the strongest teams in Italy during this period, such as Lazio, Roma, Fiorentina and AC Milan (in the cup),
and they have gotten 3 consecutive draws against those teams, only losing in extra-time against AC Milan. With this transfer window, Luciano Spalletti has mostly been tidying up the team.
Mauro Icardi is the 2nd best goal scorer in the Serie A with 18 goals, and he is 2 goals away from the leader, having a good chance to score one or two more goals in this match. He is a very mobile striker who has very good finishing.
Spal vs Inter Milan – Betting Tip and Prediction:
These are two very different teams in terms of quality, skill and also standings. If at the start of the season proved they were up to the task of contending for the title,
with these 3 consecutive slip-ups, they’ve jeopardized those chances, and they will still fight until the end for 3rd place, while on the opposing side we’ll have a team that is only fighting to avoid relegation, and that would love to get a draw here, since it would be very valuable for them.
I expect a strong start from Inter, since the 1st minute, and always with their attacking style, even after being in the lead, while Spal will try to hold on to the 0-0 draw, something that will be very difficult, thanks to Inter’s offensive quality.
