SPAL vs. Inter Predictions and Preview
After a slow start to the season which saw them pick up just four points in their opening four matches, Inter have turned a corner and are now in a rich vein of form.
Alongside a winning start to their return to the Champions League, beating Tottenham 2-1, they also secured gritty victories over Sampdoria, Fiorentina and Cagliari in Serie A.
After an impressive start to the season, in which SPAL beat both Bologna and Parma 1-0, their form has nosedived with four defeats in five including three in a row.
With just five goals in seven league games, including failing to score in three of their last five outings, the hosts are out of form.
The away side are favourites to win this encounter at odds of 7/10, with SPAL priced at 17/4 and the draw available at 11/4.
These games tend to produce few goals – just four went in across the two meetings last season – so under 2.5 goals in this encounter at 9/10 appears to offer value, with under 1.5 goals at 11/4.
A ‘double chance’ on SPAL to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 5/4 while an Inter win/draw outcome is at 2/11.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 17/10.
One to watch for SPAL: Former Milan forward Andrea Petagna has already netted twice for SPAL this season, more than any other teammate after spending two seasons at Atalanta.
One to watch for Inter: Mauro Icardi opened his account for the season with his strike in last week’s win over Fiorentina as he seeks to replicate his 29 Serie A goals last term.
Long shot: SPAL have scored just five goals in seven league games while Inter have already registered two blanks. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are available at 12/1.
