The Scudetto race goes down to the wire as we look ahead to this weekend’s Serie A finale in these Inter vs. Sampdoria predictions. The final day of the season sees Simone Inzaghi’s Nerazzurri welcome an inconsistent Blucerchiati to San Siro on Sunday, at the same time as local rivals Milan are away at Sassuolo.
Inter vs. Sampdoria odds
1 – Inter to win – 3/20
2 – Both teams to score – 23/20
3 – Over 3.5 goals scored – 3/4
4 – Inter to win by one goal– 17/4
5 – Ivan Perisic to score anytime – 7/1
Inter host Sampdoria on Sunday afternoon looking to retain the Serie A title. The Nerazzurri know that they will need to better Milan’s result in order to successfully defend the Scudetto, but will not find out whether they have succeeded until the final whistle.
The Nerazzurri go into Sunday’s game on the back of a four-match winning run, including their Coppa Italia victory over Juventus. For Sampdoria, recent results have also looked positive, with wins over Genoa and a surprise thrashing of Fiorentina ensuring that Marco Giampaolo’s side remain safe from relegation.
With so much to play for, the hosts will have to be in their very best form at the weekend and will be brimming with confidence after a dominant performance against Cagliari on Sunday. While claiming the Scudetto may be out of their hands, we back Inzaghi’s side to finish the season in style and beat Sampdoria.
Looking at past fixtures between these clubs, none of the six most recent have seen fewer than three goals scored, with an average of 3.8 per game over this period. As a result, we’re tipping a bet on over 3.5 goals scored. A safer option may be on a both teams to score bet, as Inter are notably without a clean sheet in their last six in all competitions.
It would be a surprise if the Blucerchiati do not put up a fight at San Siro, as Sampdoria tend to perform well against their recent opponents. The reverse fixture between the sides ended 2-2, while both sides won at home when the teams met last season. Despite Inter’s status as favourites, a punt on the hosts to win by just one goal could well be a shrewd move.
In most fixtures, Lautaro Martinez is one of the favourites to open the scoring, and he may do again this weekend. However, on what’s set to be his final outing for Inter, we’ve highlighted the odds on Ivan Perisic ending his time in Milan with the opening goal of the game.
