Sampdoria vs Inter predictions and betting tips on February 13, 2023
On February 13, Luigi Ferraris (Genoa) will host the match of the 22nd round of the Serie A, in which Sampdoria will compete with Inter. The battle will start at 20:45 CET.
The team did its best to stay in the Calcio in recent years. Moreover, being under the rule of Giampaolo, it made its way into European competitions. The return of this mentor, however, became unsuccessful, and at the beginning of the following season the management broke up with Marco. Still, there is no doubt that the troubles are not only connected to him. Stanković had been the coach for a long time, but he did not solve the disastrous situation. The previous hopes appeared when, after a long pause, “the Samp” started January with a 2-1 victory in the battle against Sassuolo. Still, the higher mentioned success was followed by the “dry” defeats, and the project was finally put an end to. The team was close to win in the struggle with Monza. However, that match ended in a 2-2 draw – it conceded a goal from a penalty in the 9th added minute of the game.
The club has got good chances to repeat the results of the previous season, which was the first one for Simone Inzaghi in Milan. It has already been able to defend the title in the Super Cup, defeating Milan once again – this time with a 3-0 score. Speaking about the Champions League, the Italian grandee achieved the play-offs after the difficult match in the group – it even earned 4 points in the struggles with Barcelona. The Coppa Italia is also successful: “the Nerazzurri” have recently knocked out Atalanta in the quarter-final. At the same time, the club is staying in the familiar 2nd place in the Calcio. Only Napoli, which suffered from a single defeat made by “the Black and Blues”, is higher in the standings. However, they also had some misfires, which, to tell the truth, were more than enough. For example, the giant missed the victory over Monza and lost to Empoli in January. At the same time, 6 previous rounds of the Serie A were won. There was a victory in the derby among those matches – “the Rossoneri” were stronger last Sunday by means of the only goal scored by Lautaro Martinez.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Inter has got the only misfire in 4 previous head-to-head matches – that happened in Genoa in 2021, when the battle ended with a 2-2 draw. The other 3 games brought a victory to “the Nerazzurri”, including a 3-0 one at the beginning of the following season.
Bookmakers are sure in the victory of Inter. Taking into account the difference in class, it is reasonable to bet on “the "Nerazzurri” with “a -1 goal handicap” (odd: - 1.72).
