Inter’s title hopes suffered a big setback last week so they’ll be looking to get back to winning ways when hosting Sampdoria on Saturday. The visitors are only  point above the relegation places.

Inter Milan Preview – Can Inter put last week’s defeat behind them and close to within three points of Juve?

Last weekend’s clash with Lazio had the look of being an important match in terms of Inter’s title challenge and Antonio Conte will just be hoping that his team have enough time to recover from that defeat. Despite taking the lead against their title rivals, Inter were second best for long spells and eventually went down 2-1 to fall to third in Serie A. Juventus’ win on Saturday means they are six points adrift of the champions – making tomorrow’s match a must win.
Lazio also play again before Inter kickoff and can pile even more pressure on the Milan club if they take three points away to Genoa.
Our betting prediction:
Inter win and Over 2.5 goals

Bet at Betway

It’s not yet at the critical stage for Conte and Inter but the margin for error are so small this season that they now need to string a run of wins together. This match at home to Sampdoria is the only league match before they face off in their biggest and toughest test of the campaign – away to leaders Juventus.
This title is still within reach for Inter but they have to take three points here and at very least avoid defeat when they travel to Turin next Sunday.

Sampdoria Preview – Are Samp capable of getting a resultto boost their hopes of survival?

Claudio Ranieri was brought in as boss of Sampdoria back in October to ensure the club’s safety and if the season was to end today then he would have achieved that. However, the experienced coach knows full well there is a lot of football to be played and Samp have a lot of work still to do. Last weekend’s 5-1 thumping at home to Fiorentina was the latest reminder of that. That result leaves them one point above their arch rivals Genoa in what is looking like a three-way fight with themselves and Lecce for that third and final relegation spot.

The second Genoa derby takes place at the beginning of May and is looking like a game which could have huge bearings on both Sampdoria and Genoa’s futures.

Last weekend’s defeat to Fiorentina was the second 5-1 loss of 2020 so far for Sampdoria. Add that to a 4-2 reverse at home to Napoli and it’s easy to see where their problems lie at the moment. Ranieri will be taking some comfort from the fact that the last time they played at the San Siro they were able to keep a clean sheet against the other half of Milan.

They will certainly take something similar on Sunday evening.

Inter Milan vs Sampdoria Betting Advice

It was Inter who came out on top when the sides clashed earlier in the season and if they fail to do the double over Sampdoria then they really are up against it in the battle for this season’s Serie A title. A big issue for Inter of late is the number of home draws. It’s three in their last five league games at San Siro and a big reason why they are trailing in the title race.
Key Facts – Inter Milan vs Sampdora Betting Tip
  • Defeat to Lazio last Sunday means Inter come into this game in third spot and six points behind Juventus
  • Sampdoria are just a point above the bottom three after a 5-1 home defeat against Fiorentina
  • It was a comfortable 3-1 victory for Inter when the teams met back in September


Sampdoria have won away to Inter only once in the last 24 years so it’s fair to say it’s not a fixture they relish. I fully expect Inter to get their title charge back on track here. Six of the last eight meetings between the two teams have went over 2.5 goals and that’s the selection for tomorrow’s game.
