Exciting and thrilling Italian Serie A is back in action this weekend, and we get to see the current champions Inter Milan host Genoa in one of four opening day games. The game is set to take place at Giuseppe Meazza, which is popularly known as San Siro.
Inter Milan vs Genoa Preview
Having won last season’s Scudetto, Inter Milan is one of the favorites to win the league this season. However, with the loss of the team’s number one talisman last season, Romelu Lukaku, the team might find it a bit harder to retain the title. Although they easily cruise through their various club-friendly fixtures, the Italian Serie A is a different ball game.
However, we believe that with Lautaro Matinez, Alexis Sanchez, Arturo Vidal and new signings like Edin Dzeko and Hakan Calhanogu, they can continue their impressive run of form. Another significant change in the Inter Milan team is the manager, Simone Inzaghi, having just spent two seasons in charge after Antonio Conte left.
Genoa had a mixed run last season, which got them to finish 11th on the log. Although it was a lot better than their 2019/2020 season, where they finished 17th, barely escaping relegation, they will be looking to do better. As a result, what better way is there to make an impact than beating last season’s champions? Although they did not play many friendlies, they only lost one game to FSV Mainz, a top Bundesliga team.
Since 2012, Inter Milan and Genoa have battled it out up to 18 times, and in those times, Inter has claimed the victory 11 times, with the team sharing the spoils twice. With that, Genoa has only won 5 of the last 18 matches against Inter, and the final victory came in 2018 with Genoa at home. Since then, Genoa has lost five back-to-back games to Inter at home and away at San Siro.
Match Predictions and Betting Odds
Going by the current head-to-head between both teams, it’s most likely that Inter gets the victory, which increases the winning tally to six straight games. We expect to see a cagey match, but in the end, we believe that Inter Milian will come out victorious without conceding. Therefore, our prediction is 2-0 in favour of the home team.
Except you are a fan of either team, the game’s outcome doesn’t matter; we expect an enjoyable 90+ minutes of football from both teams.
