These Inter vs. Spezia predictions see the Nerazzurri feature in their first home match of the season. Simone Inzaghi’s side are overwhelming favourites despite struggling in their opening game against Lecce.
Inter vs. Spezia odds
1 – Inter to win – 1/5
2 – Both teams to score – 19/20
3 – Under 2.5 goals scored – 1.38
4 – Over 10 corner in the game – 23/25
5 – Lukaku to score anytime – 4/6
Inter look to recover from a stuttering start to the 2022-23 season as they prepare to host Spezia on Saturday afternoon. The Nerazzurri will be hoping this campaign is better than the last in which they not only failed to retain the league title but saw the Scudetto go to city rivals Milan.
Sunday’s narrow win over newly promoted Lecce will hardly be inspiring for Simone Inzaghi as his side required an injury time goal from Denzel Dumfries to secure all three points. The Dutchman is expected to start this Saturday however in a stronger Inter line-up.
Spezia also won their first game of the season by a single goal and have strengthened defensively over the summer brining in a new first-choice goalkeeper and centre-back. That having been said, this weekend’s visitors have not managed to beat Inter in their last four games and all signs point towards home win this weekend.
Despite their dominance Inter have only kept one clean sheet in these last four meetings and looked defensively frail in their opening game of the campaign. As a result, a bet on both teams to score at the San Siro this weekend could well pay off.
This having been said, Spezia are hardly known for their goal-scoring exploits, finishing last season with the fifth-worst record in Serie A. Luca Gotti may be concerned that rather than reinforcing his front line the club have purchased last season’s loanees outright.
With the Aquilotti managing just one goal against Empoli and Inter struggling to unlock Lecce fans might be in for a low-scoring encounter on Saturday, with a bet on under 2.5 goals likely to pay off. On this theme, a corner rate of over 10 goals may be another solid wager as frustrated forwards look to shoot on sight.
If any player is to break the deadlock at the San Siro, our money would be on Romelu Lukaku. The unwanted Chelsea man scored on his return to Inter and looks a much happier player than last season at Stamford Bridge.

Inter team news
Simone Inzaghi has retained faith in Samir Handanovic in goal with Andre Onana still waiting for his start in an Inter shirt. Robin Gosens has finally claimed the starting left wing-back spot following the departure of Ivan Perisic which Romelu Lukaku has slotted straight into his old position up-front.
Spezia team news
Luca Gotti has wasted no time with introducing his summer signings with Barlomiej Dragowski and Mattia Caldara both expected to start on Saturday. Spezia fans will hope to get a glimpse of Daniel Maldini who has joined on loan from Milan but failed to make an appearance against Empoli.
