When Antonio Conte and Romelu Lukaku left Internazionale at the end of the Scudetto-winning campaign, there was a feeling that the cash-strapped champions might struggle to emulate the previous season’s achievement. However, Simone Inzaghi’s team have punched above their weight this term and they have accrued 53 points from their first 22 games played this season.

Having won sixteen of their twenty-two games, Inter now clash with Milan who sit four behinds behind them in the standings and will be determined to leap on to the coat tails of the Serie A trailblazers in an attempt to become their title rivals. The Serie A betting odds suggests that it will be a tough ask.

Inter Big Betting Favourites to Beat Milan

Inter Milan are a best price 1/4 on the Serie A outright betting market which gives you an idea of how likely they are to claim the title. They are four points clear of Napoli and Milan having played a game less and they also have a superior goal difference which effectively gives them half a point more at this point in time.

Since Saturday 16 October when Inzaghi’s team lost 3-1 at Lazio, there hasn’t been a Serie A defeat for Inter and there are sure to be lots of football accumulator tips that include the Italian champions when it comes to this clash. Two weeks ago, the team came from behind against Unione Venezia and it felt like a seismic moment for a team to keep daylight between them as the chasing pack.

There are a couple of evergreen forwards who are sure to be popular goalscorer bets, with Alexis Sanchez having rediscovered his mojo for Inter and the Chilean could be joined in attack by Edin Dzeko, with the Bosnian popping up to score the winner in his team’s most recent victory.

Are Milan a Good Bet to Open Up Serie A Title Race?

Milan might have to adopt an attacking approach in order to get the better of their rivals and the Serie A betting odds indicate that they’re the outsiders to win this clash. On the flip side, the Rossoneri have landed eight victories in their eleven away clashes this season and there wasn’t much between the two sides when they clashed in November.

On that occasion, the scoreline was 1-1 and Milan actually outscored Inter when it came to shots on target, with Stefano Pioli’s side having seen their title challenge falter just before the winter break thanks to a 2-1 home reverse against Spezia and then a goalless draw against Juventus.

At least against Juve, the Rossoneri had four shots on target compared to the Turin side drawing a blank, with that being despite Zlatan Ibrahimovic being injured early in the clash. The difficulty is also how they manage to find the net against opponents who have conceded just seventeen goals in their 22 matches played.
