Reason For Inter Milan vs Sampdoria Predictions

  • Sampdoria have failed to beat a top-half side so far this season.
  • Inter have won 10 of their 13 meetings with sides in the bottom half of the table.
  • Three of Samp’s four meetings with top-four sides have seen them lose by 2+ goals.

Can Inter Respond?

Inter Milan have already swung back into action following their Coppa Italia semi-final loss to Napoli last weekend. Their 1-1 draw in Naples was a minor setback, but they did get a free midweek to prepare for this clash.

That break could help Inter here, while the three-month suspension of Serie A could have as well. The Nerazzurri sprung from the traps in August, but halfway through the season their team was clearly on the wane.

They went from one of the fittest, hardest running sides to a team who were just waiting for the summer break. This year that’s effectively come early, giving Inter the chance to return refreshed. Antonio Conte has also had time to tweak his side, putting more emphasis on the creative abilities of Christian Eriksen. We’re backing that to pay off for the hosts in our predictions.

Samp Sinking

While Inter are looking at this as a chance to start anew, Sampdoria are returning to battle relegation. Claudio Ranieri’s arrival hasn’t moved the team to safety quite yet, although the former Leicester boss has improved things at the Marassi.

Sampdoria are in 16th place and only a point above the bottom three after winning just before the shutdown. Samp have lost three of their last six, conceding at least four goals in each of those defeats.

Their problems mostly come against stronger sides, with 15th placed Torino the highest-placed opponent they’ve beaten on the road. Ahead of that, their record from eight games is seven losses and a draw. Meanwhile, Inter are unbeaten against teams from the bottom half (W10 D3). This seems like the perfect game for Inter’s return.

Changes for Conte

Inter will maintain their strike partnership of Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez in the restart but expect to see more from Eriksen. He’s now the focal point of the side in a number 10 role, which should add creativity to a team which needed a jolt a couple of months ago.

The idea of Eriksen supplying that front two is impressive, while it should really worry Samp. Inter have dispatched the lesser sides in the division with ease this term, scoring 11 times in four home clashes against sides towards the bottom.

Samp have lost by two goals or more in half their away defeats. Their last visit to a top-four side was a 5-1 thrashing by Lazio. Three of their four clashes with the top four so far saw them lose by two or more goals, while we expect this clash to go the same way. Inter with a one-goal handicap is our pick here, while we’re backing a comfortable 2-0 win in our correct score prediction.
