Lecce vs Inter Milan

Expect an electrifying atmosphere at Stadio Via del Mare as Lecce and Inter square off against each other in a highly-anticipated Serie A clash. The Giallorossi suffered yet another dip in form, with the team losing to both Bologna and Torino in the previous two league matches and it is no wonder the bookies see them as big underdogs in Sunday’s encounter. As both Patrick Dorgu and Marin Pongracic are banned for the match, home win should not be considered.

The Nerazzurri, on the other hand, are on the right track to win the Scudetto, with the team sitting in top position in the standings nine points clear of second-place Juventus. Inter are more of a team than Lecce and despite their Champions League duties, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Simone Inzaghi’s troops. Francesco Acerbi and Juan Cuadrado should be the only absentees in the away team.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have installed Inter Milan as overwhelming favourites with a win priced at 9/20 by QQjili. An unlikely victory for Lecce is valued at 7/1 by WJpeso casino while a draw is set at odds of 7/2 by KKjili

Lecce x Inter Milan

Head to head

Inter Milan have a 20-4 advantage with three draws from 27 previous matches against Lecce. The Nerazzurri have also won the last two meetings and claimed a 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in November.

Players to watch

Lautaro Martinez is showing no signs of slowing down and has found the net eight times in the last 10 Serie A matches. The striker now has 20 Serie A goals this season and is priced at 6/5 by Jbet88 to maintain his scoring run.

Inter Milan have also been solid at the back, keeping clean sheets in six of their last seven matches. Stefan de Vrij has impressed at the heart of that defence and can lead the Nerazzurri to another clean sheet at 11/10 with Coral.

Recent Meetings

On top of form, Inter Milan have tradition to back them up in this matchup. I Nerazzurri won four and drew one of the previous five meetings with Lecce.

Inter Milan celebrated a 2-0 win in the reverse game in December last year at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

Only one of the previous four H2H matches between these counterparts provided three or more goals.

Lecce vs Inter Milan Prediction

Lecce have been struggling badly to keep things quiet at the back of late. They shipped two or more goals in each of the last five league affairs. It is by no means the kind of form you want to have ahead of the clash with the division’s deadliest attacking line. Inter Milan will enter this on the back of nine consecutive wins across competitions. They’ve kept their net untouched in six of the last seven affairs along the way. I Nerazzurri limited Atletico Madrid to zero shots on target on Tuesday night in the UEFA Champions League. This should be as one-sided affair as one can imagine. You can back Inter Milan to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the lucrative 2.20 odds.

Simone Inzaghi’s attacking options became limited with the injury to Marcus Thuram. Inter Milan will have a tough game against Atalanta on Tuesday evening. We would not be surprised to see Inzaghi giving a rest to his top scorer Lautaro Martinez. Marko Arnautovic and Alexis Sanchez may be handed starts on Sunday at Stadio Via del Mare. We see big value in backing Arnautovic to score anytime at the 2.60 odds.
