Serie A Preview: Can Inter use Spurs win boost to beat Sampdoria?

Richard Marsh | 20 September 2018

Tips and odds for this weekend’s Italian fixtures

After success in the Champions League on Tuesday night, Inter Milan will be looking to continue their form when domestic duties resume this weekend.

The San Siro outfit scored twice late on to beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in midweek, bringing joy to the side after a difficult start to the season.

I Nerazzurri are only 15th in Serie A after four matches, and head to high-flying Sampdoria on Saturday. The Coral News Team have previewed that game and the weekend’s other headline games…

Sampdoria v Inter

Inter have enjoyed an inconsistent start to the campaign. They beat Bologna comfortably, but lost to Sassuolo and the newly-promoted Parma.

Luciano Spalletti’s men are odds-on at 10/11 to beat Sampdoria. The Genoa outfit have already beaten Napoli and drawn with Fiorentina this season, however.

There’s 29/10 about the home side proving victorious, with 13/5 about the draw. At full strength Inter are the better side though, if they can shake off their inconsistencies.

They won both meetings last season too, including a 5-0 hammering at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris. Mauro Icardi scored four in that match, and the Argentine is in great form after his excellent strike versus Spurs.

Frosinone v Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo will be the centre of attention once again this weekend. Juventus’ new striker bagged his first goals for the Old Lady last weekend, only to be sent off in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Juve and Ronnie will be hoping to maintain their perfect start to the season though when they head to minnows Frosinone.

The home side are in just their second season of Serie A football. They’re yet to score a goal and have collected one point from their opening four games.

Juventus are a confident 1/5 to maintain their winning run. Frosinone are an unlikely 16s, though Juve’s last trip to the Stadio Benito Stirpe ended 1-1. Another draw this Sunday is 11/2.

Best of the rest

Surprise package of the season SPAL face a tricky trip to Fiorentina on Saturday. They’re 24/5 for a fourth win of the campaign.

On Sunday Napoli will look to keep pressure on Juventus, but Juve’s Turin rivals Torino stand in their way. Coral are 5/6 about Carlo Ancelotti’s men proving victorious.

AC Milan are 21/20 to defeat Atalanta, while Roma are 7/10 to win away at winless and goalless Bologna.
