Bet Of The Day: Inter Expected To Dispense Of Genoa In Coppa Italia Tie

Beneamata favourites to win at San Siro...
Match Odds: Inter 1.57, Draw 3.50, Genoa 5.50 (Sportingbet)

Leonardo's renaissance at Inter continues this evening when the reigning Coppa Italia holders take on troubled Genoa at San Siro.

The Brazilian tactician has got off to a decent start, winning his first two games, but he'll be judged by silverware at the end of the season. Inter have plenty of catching up to do in Serie A and have a tricky rematch against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, so the Coppa Italia represents a genuine opportunity for a trophy.

Genoa traditionally don't cause Inter many problems, with their last victory against tonight's opponents coming way back in 1994. In the last four games against Inter they haven't managed to score.

More recently Genoa have endured another drought and are without a goal since December 5. In the cup they've only played lower ranked opposition and the trip to Milan will surely prove too much against a resurgent Inter.

The hosts are a short enough 1.57 to win which still represents a decent profit margin if they are victorious as expected. Better value can be found on Inter to win to nil at 2.20 and considering Genoa's problems in front of goal it looks a runner.
