Inter Milan to Win and Over 2.5 Match Goals

Reason for tip

Inter have won six of their last nine competitive games, while five of their seven matches this season have contained over 2.5 goals. Viktoria Plzen were beaten 5-1 by Barcelona last week, and have seen three goals or more scored in six of their last seven European ties.

Inter Milan 2-1

Reason for tip

Inter have Serie A’s second-strongest attack according to both goals (12) and expected goals (11.4) this season, but 11 of their last 14 competitive games have featured goals at both ends. The hosts have scored eight goals in their last four matches and should carry a goal threat of their own.

FK Viktoria Plzen vs Inter Milan Predictions

  • Inter Milan have won six of their last nine competitive games.
  • The Nerazzurri have seen over 2.5 goals scored in five of their seven competitive games this term.
  • Viktoria Plzen were thrashed 5-1 by Barcelona in their Champions League opener.
  • The hosts have seen over 2.5 goals scored in six of their last seven European contests.

Nerazzurri aiming to get off the mark

Inter Milan were comprehensively outplayed by Group C favourites Bayern Munich in last week’s Champions League opener, and need to get back on track when they head to the Czech Republic to face Viktoria Plzen. Simone Inzaghi’s men cut a poor run short with a last-gasp win over Torino on Saturday, and are strong favourites to beat a side who were thrashed 5-1 by Barcelona last week.

Indeed, Inter had lost three of their previous four games before downing Il Toro, though all of Lazio, AC Milan and Bayern have significantly greater firepower than Viktoria. Though they have not played with much fluency this term, Inter have still lost just four games since mid-February, and have scored multiple goals in nine of their last 12 matches. In Serie A, meanwhile, only Napoli (13) have outscored Inter (12) or bettered their tally of 11.4 expected goals (12.6 xG) this season.

Viktoria Plzen, meanwhile, were well beaten by Barcelona at Camp Nou last Wednesday, but their domestic form suggests they should always retain a goal threat; the Czech champions have scored eight goals in their last four outings, while over 2.5 goals have been scored in six of their last seven European contests. When they last made the Champions League’s group stages in 2018-19, meanwhile, there were 23 goals scored across their six games, seven for and 16 against.

Inter can edge entertaining affair

Across the Champions League’s opening matchday, Inter (11) and Viktoria (10) were the two teams to give up the most shots on target. While both faced particularly strong opponents, Inter’s defensive vulnerability and both teams’ need for a win means an away victory featuring over 2.5 goals could be a decent play.

Meanwhile, a 2-1 away win could represent a decent correct score prediction; 11 of the Nerazzurri’s last 14 games have featured goals at both ends.
