Inter started the league season with little success, but Simone Inzaghi’s side looked very solid in the first two rounds, beating Lecce (2:1) and La Spezia (3:0). However, the Nerazzurri were unable to overcome a stronger Lazzio – the Romans won 3:1 on home field. Inter won their third win in a row over Cremonese (3:1) in the next meeting.
In the derby against FC Milan, the Nerazzurri managed to open the scoring, but then the Rossoneri quickly seized the initiative and eventually brought the match to a 3:2 victory. In that way, Inter suffered their second defeat in the league. Another fiasco awaited the team in the middle of the week: they failed to stop Bayern at home (0:2) in the first leg of the Champions League. The second defeat in a row, and already the third of the season, puts the position of coach in jeopardy.
Torino, led by Ivan Djuric, failed to achieve their goals last season and did not make it to the European Cup. However, this season the Bulls are likely to set themselves the same ambitious goals – they have had a relatively successful start to the championship. Having beaten Monza 2:1 in the first leg, the Turin side secured a nil draw against Lazio in Rome.
A second straight away win was achieved in the third round: Cremonese (3:1) didn`t pose a problem for the Bulls. However, it was not possible to build on this success – Torino showed good football in Bergamo but lost 1:3 to Atalanta, suffering their first defeat of the season. A 1:0 win over Lecce in the last round helped the Bulls to reach the coveted sixth position.
Inter lost two matches in a row, in the league and the Champions League, their third loss of the season. Next Tuesday, the Nerazzurri will face the Czech Victorias in the Champions League, so Inzaghi will not be without rotation. At the same time, it is unlikely that the team will neglect the league game, where the situation needs to be rectified right now.
The hosts’ mentor has quite a solid reserve team at his disposal, so the rotation will not weaken them too much. Inter’s motivation will clearly be off the charts. Torino, for all their merits, can hardly expect to win points today – Inter are angry, motivated and superior in class, and the Bulls have not beaten their opponents in the last six meetings.
Inter have the opportunity to make a point-by-point rotation, without much loss in quality, so it is unlikely that the intense schedule will prevent the team to play at least 70% of their potential, if not at full strength. Given that the Nerazzurri are currently eighth in the table and suffered a derby defeat against AC Milan, there will clearly be no problem with motivation, the favorite is unlikely to limit himself to a minimum victory.
Our second bet would be a two-goal win for Inter. Such a bet in PariPesa can be placed for 4.33
