Inter Milan prepare to go up against Sampdoria at the San Siro on Monday night and a victory will be crucial for the home side in their aspirations of a European placed finish.
Inter Milan Match Betting News
Inter have been completely transformed following the arrival of Stefano Pioli and in a season which initially looked hopeless under Frank de Boer, the Nerazzurri are instead challenging for a place in one of the Champions League spots.
Inter’s charge was halted a bit before the international break following a 2-2 draw against Torino but Pioli’s men’s attacking prowess means that they still stand a very good chance of catching 3rd place Napoli in the table.
In order to do so, Inter will have to win as many games as possible though and three points against Sampdoria at the San Siro on Monday night will be of paramount importance. Ionut Radu is the only injury doubt for Inter ahead of the game.
Sampdoria Match Betting News
Sampdoria have performed much better during the current campaign under Marco Gaimpaolo as compared to last year and Blucerchiati are strong contenders to finish in the top half of the table this season, which will represent a major achievement.
However, Sampdoria’s fine run of eight matches without defeat was ended by Juventus last weekend and it will be interesting to see if Gaimpaolo’s men will be able to deliver a response when they face another giant in the form of Inter Milan on Monday.
Patrik Schick, Luis Fernando Muriel, Angelo Palombo and Emiliano Viviano are the players struggling with injury problems heading into the encounter against Inter.
Inter Milan vs Sampdoria Match Prediction
Sampdoria had managed to claim a 1-0 victory over Inter Milan the last time these two sides squared off against each other and given Blucerchiati’s fine form at the moment, one can expect another close encounter this weekend as well.
However, Inter are a very strong side at home and one should expect them to be able to blow Sampdoria away with their dangerous looking attacking lineup.
