The UEFA Champions League is back in action this week and Inter Milan will face FC Porto. Inter Milan will be hosting the game at San Siro for Porto and will be getting good support from their home fans. Porto will be coming to play at San Siro after hosting Rio Ave for a Primeira Liga fixture.
Inter Milan are currently in the second spot in the Serie A point table with 44 points and 14 wins. It’s unlikely they have any chance to win the Serie A title as they are 18 points behind the league leaders Napoli.
On the other hand, Porto are currently in the second spot in the Primeira Liga point table five points behind the top position. And top bookmakers in India have some amazing odds for the European leagues.
Inter are coming out as a strong team and considering the absentees in Porto, we predict a win for Milan by 2-1.
The betting tip is...
Inter Milan to beat FC Porto 2-1
Inter Milan are not having the best of their time in the ongoing Serie A league and Champions League. The primary concern for the team management is the consecutive failure of Romelu Lukaku. Except for Martinez, no other player is stepping up to score goals. Inzaghi will be concerned about the declining form of his attackers and goal scorers.
Joaquin Correa is out of action because of his thigh injury and Inzaghi will be replacing him against Porto.
Predicted Lineup: Onana,Skriniar, Acerbi, Bastoni, Darmian, Barella, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Dimarco, Martinez, Lukaku
Porto have completely turned their gameplay and now they are just five points behind being the league leaders. They are currently sitting in the second spot with 46 points. The recent win against Sporting and Vizela has helped them to secure hopes to win the Primeira Liga title this year as well.
Brazilian duo Gabriel Veron and Evanilson are facing ankle and muscle injuries respectively and won’t be part of the starting XI.
Predicted Lineup: Costa, Mario, Pepe, Marcano, Sanusi, Franco, Grujic, Uribe, Pepe, Taremi, Galeno
We expect a close contest between the two sides. On paper, Inter are a superior force to the Portuguese champions.
