Champions Internazionale make their 2021-22 Serie A bow when clashing with Genoa this weekend, with Antonio Conte no longer in charge of the Milan side, while Romelu Lukaku has recently left the San Siro to sign for Chelsea. It is clear that Inter are financially troubled right now and it might be a meek defence of their Scudetto that was won against the odds last season.

Indeed, there has been an exodus of players including the departure of Achraf Hakimi to PSG, with Simone Inzhagi now tasked with repeating the magic trick performed by Conte and it might be tough considering that Lukaku leaves a big hole up front.

We’re expecting this to be a relatively tight clash considering that Genoa aren’t going to be in the mood to roll over and have their tummies tickled. Davide Ballardini’s side finished eleventh last term and they always aimed to keep things tight when they took to the road.

A point would be an excellent outcome for Genoa who will hope to weather a potentially early storm, while a bet on two goals or under also covers the possibility that Inter can win this game 1-0 or 2-0 and get off to a winning start.
