Inter vs. Venezia Tips, Preview and Predictions

Inter Venezia New Eurotips

Serie A champions Inter Milan continue their title defence when they welcome Venezia to San Siro on Saturday evening. The Nerazzurri dropped their first points in the league since early November last time out, but will be confident of an immediate return to winning ways against the struggling Leoni Alati.

Last time: Hakan Calhanoglu put Inter into a first-half lead in late November’s reverse fixture at the Stadio Pier Luigi Penzo, before a Lautaro Martinez penalty secured a 2-0 victory for Inter in the final minute of the game. 

Inter v Venezia Predictions and Preview

Inter’s eight-match winning run in Serie A came to an end when they shared a goalless draw away to Atalanta on Sunday. The result was far from disastrous though, and took the Nerazzurri to 13 without loss in the league. Simone Inzaghi’s side have looked superb for a few months now, and they start this game top of the table following Milan’s last-gasp defeat to Spezia on Monday. 

The San Siro outfit have a game in hand over their local rivals too, while Venezia also have a game to make up on their fellow relegation candidates. Even so, Paolo Zanetti has a real job on his hands to keep the Arancioneroverdi in Serie A. I Lagunari have only tasted victory four times in 21 fixtures so far this term, with the visitors surely set for their 12th defeat of the campaign this weekend. 

Inter vs. Venezia full time result odds

Zanetti’s cause isn’t helped by the absence of Michael Svoboda due to suspension, although Tyronne Ebuehi is the only other absentee for the visitors. He’s away at the Africa Cup of Nations, meaning the visitors have no injuries to contend with at present. Inter are also faring well on the fitness front though and Inzaghi could have a full complement of players available for this game, further enhancing the home team’s prospects. 

Inter vs. Venzia to win to nil odds

With the hosts such strong favourites in this Inter v Venezia preview, we’re looking for some value on the home win. The Nerazzurri have only conceded one goal in their last eight matches, while Venezia are scoring at an average of less than a goal a game. We’re backing against both teams scoring on Saturday at 7/10, while a Nerazzurri win to nil is priced at 4/5

Inter vs. Venezia correct score odds

The Arancioneroverdi are conceding at a rate of 1.8 goals per game on their return to the top flight this season. This visit to the champions is a tougher game than usual though, with Inter the top scorers in Serie A after finding the back of the net 51 times across their opening 21 matches. That’s an average of 2.4 goals per game, with a 3-0 home win looking appealing at 6/1 in these Inter v Venezia predictions. 

Inter vs. Venezia first goalscorer odds

Lautaro Martinez is in great form for Inter right now. The Argentine has six goals in his last nine Serie A appearances, taking him to 11 for the season in the league. He also scored the equaliser from the penalty spot in Inter’s dramatic Supercoppa Italiana victory over Juventus last week, and will attract plenty of attention at 3/1 for the first goal. If you’re looking for big odds in these Inter v Venezia tips, a scorecast of 3-0 to Inter with Martinez netting first comes in at 27/1
