Walter Mazzarri has seen his side slip adrift of the Champions League places after failing to win any of their last four Serie A games, but is slight 13/8 (2.63) favourite with BetVictor to collect all three points in his first ever derby in charge.
Meanwhile, opposite number Massimiliano Allegri is under increasing pressure as his team sits disappointingly in mid-table, with odds of 7/4 (2.75) available on him earning some much-needed breathing space with a first win in five against the local rivals.
The teams shared a 1-1 draw in last season’s corresponding fixture and you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them collecting a single point for the eighth time respectively this league campaign.
Having played out just one goalless draw in the last decade, matches between these historic rivals can usually be relied upon to live up to the hype, and this clash promises to be no different.
As the league’s highest scorers with 36 goals to their name in 16 fixtures, the Nerazzuri will be confident of causing problems for an opposition defence that has conceded more goals than anyone but the current bottom four.
However, after conceding nine goals in their last three games themselves - including two in a cup tie against Serie B Trapani - the hosts may struggle to contain an attack that has scored at least two goals in six of their last seven Serie A away matches, meaning there should be no shortage of goalmouth action.
A bet on over 2.5 goals would have paid out in each of Inter’s last three games and nine of the Rossoneri’s last 10 on the road in the league, so must be safe at 31/40 (1.78) when they come face-to-face.
With both sides as porous at the back as they are prolific in attack at the moment, odds of 10/3 (4.33) are also worth a pop on them cancelling each other out, having each recorded score draws in three of their last four league games.
