Inter Milan Prediction – Can Inter Milan teach new-boys lesson?

It was a successful campaign for Inter Milan in Serie A last season as Monday night’s hosts not only grabbed the last remaining top four spot which guaranteed them Champions League football this season, but they did so from under their fierce local rivals, AC Milan’s noses.

Inter edged their crosstown rivals out by a single point but it was enough for Antonio Conte’s men to enjoy bragging rights for a while. A new season is now upon us though, and Inter will be keen to make a good start here, especially as this will be their first home match of the new Serie A season.

Overall results ended with Inter Milan losing just 1 of their last 9 matches of last season’s Italian top flight, that being a heavy 4-1 loss away at 2nd placed Napoli, but they finished with an unbeaten 5-match run on home turf at their Stadio Giuseppe Meazza to claim that all-important 4th place.

It’s been 7 years since Inter Milan last played Lecce but the hosts have strong history against their visitors as Inter have won the last 7 meetings at home on the trot against them.

Lecce Prediction – Can Lecce get off to a good start?

Monday night’s visitors, Lecce, also enjoyed a successful campaign last season which culminated in them achieving automatic promotion from Serie B as they finished runners-up to Brescia, missing out on winning the second tier league title by just 1 point.

Lecce start with a very tough challenge in this opening match of their Serie A campaign though as they make their way to Milan to face a strong Inter outfit who won’t have any Champions League distractions at the moment to hold them back.

Even though Lecce were promoted from Serie B last season in what was a hugely successful campaign, the visitors ended up with an indifferent away record that finished up on 6-5-7 28/30 which does look a tad inconsistent.

Indeed, switch to their results away from home and Lecce managed to record just 1 win out of their last 7 matches on their travels in the Italian second tier, so a trip to Inter Milan this Monday evening could be beyond them here.


Key-Facts – Inter Milan v Lecce

  • Inter Milan have lost just 1 of their last 9 matches overall in Serie A
  • Lecce have won just 1 out of their last 7 matches on their travels
  • Inter Milan have won the last 7 meetings on the trot at home against Lecce


Betting Tips Verdict

Inter Milan will be keen to open their account at home on Monday night and Lecce could struggle to break through.
