Simone Inzaghi’s side have been Serie A leaders for a long time but suffered a relegation in February. There was only one win in a month (2-0 against Roma) in seven games. The result sees Milan find themselves just ahead of the Nerazzurri. Now, the Black and Blue have amassed 81 points from 37 games played. There have been 81 goals scored (the most in the league) and 32 conceded (the fewest in the league). The hosts are now in good form, having won nine of their last 10 games.
Last Sunday, Milan defeated Cagliari 1-3 away, before that they won the Italian Cup (2-4 defeating Juventus). The visitors’ attacking duo of Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez have scored 34 goals in the league this season. Only holding midfielder Roberto Gagliardini is sidelined.
The Genoese have not had a very successful season, sitting 15th in the league standings. They only avoided relegation last season. In 37 games, they scored 36 points, scored 46 goals, and conceded 60. The visitors are not in the best of form: In their last seven games, they have suffered four defeats. The top scorer is forward Francesco Caputo, with 11 goals under his belt.
Last Monday the Bilo-Syni thrashed Fiorentina 4-1 at home, with a phenomenal display of goalscoring. On the other hand, their away performance has been poorer, with just one win in 11 games. Manolo Gabbiadini is sidelined. The main centre-back Omar Colli is suspended.
The teams have already met each other in the first round of the current national championship, and then everything ended in a draw 2:2.
Inter vs Sampdoria
The visitors escaped relegation to Serie B last round and now have no tournament objectives. In addition, the Genoese are performing poorly away from home: only 1 win in the last 11 outings. Such a mid-table side shouldn’t be a problem for an extremely motivated Inter, who still have a chance at the Scudetto. For that, the Milanese need to win on their own and count on a Rossonerri defeat. All the leaders are in place, so we’re betting on the home side to win with a -2 handicap.
