The 2022-23 Serie A season begins at pace this weekend and these Lecce vs. Inter predictions form part of a packed weekend in the Italian top flight. Inter will be looking to start the season positively, after missing out to rivals Milan in title race in 2021-22,with Lecce back in the big time after winning Serie B.

Lecce vs. Inter odds

1 – Inter to win – 4/13

2 – Inter over 1.5 total goals – 4/11

3 – Total goals scored over 2.5 – 6/10

4 – Both teams to score – 21/20

5 – Inter to win 3-1 – 11/1

Inter’s frustration at not retaining the Serie A title in 2022 will form a major motivation for them this season.

Simone Inzaghi’s side dropped off top spot at the start of February, and Milan simply picked up the momentum from there, as the holders were unable to wrestle back control in the final weeks of the campaign.

Inter’s reaction has been to bring Romelu Lukaku back to the club, following his key role in their title win in 2021, but their preseason form has been mixed.

Two wins and two draws, plus a defeat to La Liga giants Villarreal, have not boosted early season optimism to a significant degree but they will be confident of a positive result against their promoted hosts.

Lecce picked up two wins from four in preseason with Marco Baroni’s side already knocked out of the Coppa Italia after defeat to Serie B side AS Cittadella last weekend.

Inter’s slight edge in preseason, and their talented squad, make them favourites to win in Stadio Via del Mare, and get the campaign off to a strong start.

Inzaghi is confident his side can score goals on the opening weekend, after netting 10 goals in five preseason games, but they failed to keep a clean sheet in each of those matches.

That defensive fragility will open the door for Lecce to at least threaten, after they scored in three of their own four warm up matches, plus two in the home defeat to AS Cittadella.

Inter should have little issue in racking up goals on the opening weekend, but their defence needs to improve, if Inzaghi is serious about mounting a title challenge in 2023.
