Serie A season 2018-19 preview

Date and time: October 17, 5pm

Location: San Siro

Serie A returns with a bang on Saturday evening, with the Milan Derby at the San Siro. Both sides have made a strong start to the season, with AC Milan winning their first three games. They sit two points ahead of Inter, who have drawn once in the opening weeks.

Both of these sides will be keen to make a push for Champions League football at the very least this season, and there is a chance to lay down an early marker in this one.

Inter have won the last four games between the sides, with Romelu Lukaku scoring the winner last time out. The Belgian could well be the difference again here; we think Inter will edge this one again. Back them at 13/10 with Bet365.

Why are we backing Inter here?

Their recent derby record plays a huge part, as does Lukaku’s presence. But AC Milan will be confident of getting a win here too, because they have been in such good form.

Five of Inter’s last six games have involved over 2.5 goals, as have three of Milan’s last four. That is certainly a good bet at 8/11 with Bet365.

What other markets are worth a look?

Back Lukaku to score anytime and between two and three goals in the match, both at 21/20 with Bet365.

Odds correct as of 15/10/2020
