Walter Mazzarri's men were left frustrated against both Atalanta and Udinese last week but Al Hain-Cole expects them to return to form against a porous Amaranto defence
Walter Mazzarri's men picked up just one point from presentable-looking games against Atalanta and Udinese at the San Siro last week but are 10/11(1.91) favourites with William Hill to return to winning ways in this one.
However, the hosts recorded just their fourth home win of the season in their last match on home soil and are available at 7/2 (4.50) to move out of the relegation zone with another victory.
Domenico Di Carlo’s team held AC Milan to a 2-2 draw in front of their own fans earlier in the season and you can get odds of 21/10 (3.10) on them similarly frustrating their local rivals on Monday.
Despite a frustrating week, Mazzarri will not be too downcast after his team’s performances against Atalanta and Udinese, where bad luck and excellent opposition goalkeeping stood between them and maximum points on both occasions.
In fact, the Nerazzurri can now look to consolidate their position in fifth place after Parma lost against Lazio on Sunday, while Fiorentina's draw at Sampdoria means that fourth is still very much up for grabs.
Fortunately, the lack of cutting edge that has hampered Inter over the past couple of games should not be much of an issue against the second worst defence in Serie A, who have failed to keep a single clean sheet in their last 19 games.
Having conceded just four times in their last eight games themselves, the visitors must surely be backed at 10/11 (1.91) to grab the majority of the goals, boosting their European credentials in the process.
That bet looks particularly attractive considering that they have come out on top in 10 of the previous 12 encounters with the Amaranto, including each of the last five.
