Verona vs Inter Milan
Italian Serie A
Date: 3 May 2023, Wednesday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
Lautaro Martinez initiated a phenomenal second-half comeback for Inter Milan in a huge 3-1 victory over direct top-four rivals Lazio in the first game of Sunday’s Serie A schedule.
The Argentinean forward came on from the bench to bag two goals for I Nerazzurri and help them break into the top-four in the Serie A table.
It was the third win on the spin for Simone Inzaghi’s men who seem to have found the right spell of form just ahead of the most important part of the season.
Inter also eliminated Juventus with a 1-0 victory in the Coppa Italia semifinal last week at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. They have bagged three goals in each of the previous two league outings against Empoli and Lazio.
I Nerazzurri will come into mid-week’s clash against relegation-threatened Verona in the highest of spirits and we can only expect them to maintain the scintillating run of form on Wednesday evening at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
Verona are also in a desperate need for points while sitting third from bottom and being level on points with Spezia in the safe zone.
Nevertheless, the team led by Marco Zaffaroni missed a huge chance to move into safe waters at the weekend when they only drew 1-1 away at the likes of Cremonese who are seven points behind them in the red zone.
It was not the very best of Verona’s displays as their equalizer (through Simone Verdi) came only after Cremonese’s red card at the hour-mark of the affair.
On a positive note, Verona are unbeaten in four successive league games going into this tie.

Verona vs Inter Milan Prediction
Verona are undefeated in four consecutive league games and they desperately need points but it is very hard to expect salvation in the clash against the in-form Inter Milan. The visitors seem to have found the right attacking momentum and we see them as massive favorites here.
The away win is the main pick at the 1.66 odds, while you can alternatively take the 2.50 odds offered for Lautaro Martinez to score anytime following his brace in the weekend’s win over Lazio.
