Cremonese vs Inter: predictions and betting tips on the Serie A match on January 28, 2023
On January 28, Giovanni Zini Stadium (Cremona) will host the match of the 20th round of the Serie A, in which Cremonese will compete with Inter. The battle will start at 18:00 CET.
The club has finally been able to remind about itself. The last time “the Gray and Reds” played in the Serie A was in the 90s of the previous century. However, the mentor who achieved that result, Pecchia, made a decision to stay in the second division of Italy as the coach of Parma. As a result, the project was headed by Alvini, but the newcomer of the Calcio could not win under his rule. Nevertheless, the specialist was fired only after the pause, when there had already been new defeats, not only to Juventus, but also to Verona and Monza. Ballardini, who had replaced him, started with a sensation: heading the team, it turned out to knock Napoli out of the Coppa Italia. That happened on penalties, despite the fact that the outsider finished the game in Naples in the minority! Then, the team did not lose in the match with Bologna. Still, there was also a draw, 1-1, thus, there is no possibility to win even with a new mentor.
The team made a lot of misfires at the beginning of the season. From the end of August to the beginning of October, there was a period with 4 defeats in 6 rounds of the Serie A. At that very time, only the merits of 2021/2022 saved Inzaghi at his position in the club. But then, to tell the truth, there was only a single failure until the middle of the winter. It gave an opportunity to return to the familiar group of leaders of the Calcio (simultaneously, a serious punishment for Juventus helped all competitors). Do not forget that in the autumn, the Italian team won the run with Barcelona for the right to reach the play-offs of the Champions League. And in January, the success came back to the Serie A: the team won the struggle with Napoli – a 1-0 defeat became the first one for “the Parthenopeans” in the draw, and on January 18, the neighbouring Milan was also defeated – a 3-0 score in the Super Cup of Italy. Then, the club did not get any points in the match with modest Empoli – that misfortune can somehow be explained by the early removal of Skriniar.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
In August, the teams played their first official head-to-head match since 1996. That game resulted in the home 3-1 victory of Inter.
Bookmakers are waiting for Inter to be rehabilitated for the failure in the previous round – we bet on the guests’ success with “a -1 goal handicap” (odd: 1.833).
