I’m confident this will be a high-scoring affair with goals on both ends.
Both teams have scored in six of the last eight Inter’s home matches, whilst Rossoneri are in decent goalscoring form having netted eleven goals over the last five fixtures across competitions. BTTS – Yes will be my man bet here.
I will follow my 2-1 or 2-2 scoreline hunch and hit the goals market to take over 2.5 goals. With Romelu Lukaku on one side and Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the other, we’re in for an exciting Derby Della Madonnina. Good luck!
