Inter win with handicap (-1)

Sampdoria is one of the contenders for relegation to the second division. The team is second to last with 10 points and the lowest goal difference, which will make it even harder to save the club.

Even the appointment of a new coach after the 8th round – Dejan Stankovic – did not help to shake the players and stabilize the game in defense (xga = 27.71 – 5th from last). But worst of all, “sailors” can be creative in front of other people’s gates. In terms of expected goals scored (xg = 17.78) they are 3rd from the bottom of the league.

The main right midfielder, who is in the top 3% of players for passing to promote attack, will miss the upcoming match due to rejection of yellow cards.

Inter almost lost any real chance of winning the Scudetto. In Serie A, there is only one fight for one of the places in the strongest quartet, which will give the right to participate in the prestigious European tournament next season. A slight advantage over their rivals is unlikely to let the black and blue team breathe, so I expect maximum focus from them.

In terms of expected goals scored (xg = 35.21) and conceded (xga = 18.07), the Nerazzurri are ranked 2nd and 3rd respectively, indicating an excellent team record.

This calendar year, Inter played poorly against simpler teams. What is worth losing with Empoli (0-1) and drawing with Monza (2-2). But I’m still betting on the favorite to win. Now the strategic task for him is to get the maximum number of points before the Champions League play-offs.
