Inter Milan vs Venezia: prediction for the Serie A match
Inter Milan easily crushed Venezia in their first meeting this season. Do the visitors have a chance on January 22? Our prediction is in the article below.
Inter Milan are enjoying life on top of the log with a total of 50 points to their name. Their closest pursuers, AC Milan, are two points behind, but the Nerazzurri have a game in hand. Earlier this week, Simone Inzaghi's men defeated Empoli in the round of 16 of Coppa Italia (3:2 ET) and advanced to the quarter-finals of the tournament.
Venezia looked decent in the first half of the season.Paolo Zanetti's charges have avoided the relegation zone and currently are occupying the 17th line of the Serie A standings. The Winged Lions have not been impressive lately, and in the last round of games they earned only one point from a 1:1 draw with Empoli. Venezia haven't won in eight straight matches.
This score was recorded in 2 of the last 6 games of Venezia.
In 2 of the last 3 away games, Venezia conceded in both halves.
In 2 of the last 3 home games, Inter conceded in the first half.
Inter need to keep the title challengers at a distance, that's why they will be looking to get a victory in the upcoming fixture. The Nerazzurri are in great form and have superior quality in each line. Venezia regularly make mistakes on the defensive and we doubt they can put up a fight against the league leader.
Our prediction - Asian handicap(-2) to Inter Milan
Inter have the best attack in Serie A - Venezia won't keep a clean sheet. But Zanetti's side can catch the hosts on counterattacks and score a goal or maybe two.
Second bet - both to score
