Inter Milan will be looking to make a winning start to its Serie A 2022-23 campaign, as it visits Lecce this weekend to face the newly promoted team.
Inter Milan made a good start to the last season and was sitting comfortably on the number one spot till the halfway mark. However, some rather inconsistent performances during the middle third of the season saw them relinquish the top spot, which was ultimately won by their neighbors AC Milan.
The inconsistencies have trickled down to the pre-season friendlies, as Inter has managed to win just 1 of the 5 it played. Simone Inzaghi has made some good buys in the form of pre-season transfers, to bolster his chances of winning the Scudetto for the 20th time. Joaquin Correa makes his way into the squad as an outright buy, while Romelu Lukaku, Kristjan Asllani, and Raoul Bellanova have been brought in on loan.
Lecce finished the 2021-22 season at the top of the Serie B table and was promoted to the top flight after a gap of 2 seasons. After winning 2 of its 4 pre-season friendlies, the club was expected to make a good start to the season. However, they crashed out of the Coppa Italia in the first round itself, losing 3-2 to fellow Serie B team AS Cittadella. Coach Marco Baroni has sought to strengthen his midfield and defenses with a host of new signings. But only time will tell if they are capable of bearing the onslaught from the top flight clubs.
Match prediction and football betting tips for US Lecce vs Inter Milano Serie A 2022-23. The match is going to be played at Stadio Comunale via Del Mare, Lecce, on 13th August 2022.
Both the teams have a fully fit squad available for selection for this opening game of the season. Marco Baroni is expected to go with a slightly defensive 4-3-3 formation for this game, while Inzaghi will be ready to attack with a 3-5-2 formation for this match.
Despite facing a rough patch in the past few weeks, we expect the visitors to bounce back and collect 3 points from this game.
Bet on Inter Milan to win.
3 of the last 6 head to head games between the two clubs have seen both the teams score. 2 of Lecce’s last 4 matches have seen goals at both ends. Similarly, 4 of the last 5 matches for Inter Milan have also seen both sides score. Hence, we predict that a BTTS bet can win here.
Lukaku had a frustrating season playing for Chelsea last season. He could manage just 8 goals in the 23 matches he played for the English club. Back to Italy on loan, Lukaku has 64 goals in the 95 matches that he has played for Inter Milan. We are therefore backing him to score at least once against the weak defenses of Lecce.
