Inter Milan Form & Team News 


Inter Milan have had a very busy summer. After qualifying for the Champions League last season, they brought in Antonio Conte to help them push towards winning the title and challenging Juventus this season. 

Diego Godin and Romelu Lukaku were both brought in as statements of intents by the Milan side. Godin is unlikely to start tonight but Lukaku is likely to lead the line for the Nerrazurri after impressing during his pre-season games at the club. 

Inter have had a good pre-season, picking up victories against the likes of PSG, Tottenham and Valencia and will feel strong coming into the new campaign. 

They are clear favourites for the game with bet365 offering a price of 1.25 to pick up a victory in their opening game.

Lecce Team News & Form 


Lecce sealed promotion to Serie A last season. The club couldn’t have asked for a trickier start to their new season though and they will be handed a free pass by their fans for this one. 

They have had a strong pre-season though and have won their last four matches. They won in the Copa Italia 4-0 against Salernitana last weekend. 

Diego Farias and Gianluca Lapadula will start up top for the team. The duo are unlikely to cause the Inter defence too many issues though. 

They have not played in Serie A for seven years. Their fans may take some hope from the fact that the last time they played Inter they won 1-0 back in 2012. They were hammered 4-1 in their last trip to the San Siro though. 

Lecce are priced all the way at 15.00 with bet365 to pick up the victory at the San Siro, which reflects the gap in quality between the two sides. 

Inter Milan vs Lecce Match Analysis - Statement of intent from Inter Milan 


Inter Milan will want to make a statement on the opening game of the season under Antonio Conte and they have been handed a golden opportunity against one of the newly promoted sides.

Lecce have had a strong pre-season and will want to impress on their Serie A return but they are likely to get rolled over by a strong Inter Milan side with relative ease. 

Inter Milan vs Lecce Tips - Win to Nil and Lukaku to get on the scoresheet

 
Inter Milan are currently priced at 1.25 to pick up the win in this match which presents very little value. They are available at a more generous 1.95 in the win to nil market, which is worth backing. 

Romelu Lukaku will also be a key figure for Inter Milan this season and he is available at 1.72 in the anytime goalscorer market and 4.00 in the first goalscorer market. All odds are from bet365. 

Verdict

Inter Milan will want to make a statement on the opening day of their season and should pick up a comfortable victory over newly-promoted Lecce.
