Place: Italy. Milan. San Siro Stadium.
Date: on the 26th of August, 2018 (Sunday)
Match start: 19:30 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Championship of Italy. Serie A. 2nd round.
Inter Dortmund (the head coach Luciano Spalletti)
Manchester United, England and the Italian Inter became the main “birthday men” of last week-end among top Champions League clubs. Undoubtedly, in frames of the away match between Nerazzurri and Sassuolo all expected that the guests will win.
Alas! So well-known current coach of the black and Blues Luciano Spalletti has unexpectedly decided to make absolutely unnecessary rotation of the starting lineup and has brought the quartet of frankly weak players into the starting lineup. Especially the right winger Matteo Politano and the center forward Lautaro Martinez, who have got incredibly low marks for the primitive football, were out of the game. And the tandem of holding midfielders – Matías Vecino and Marcelo Brozović – was rather weak.
Having got advantage in the middle of the field, the hosts have very actively spent the first half of the match. And though after a break, at last, Ivan Perišić has joined the game but guests were already losing with the score (1:0).
Torino (the head coach Walter Mazzarri)
Other underdog of the new season will be the closest rival of Nerazzurri. It is the second by its status club from Turin. However unlike frankly weak Inter, the team of Walter Mazzarri has made very good impression during last home match with Roma (0:1). And the productive shot of Edin Džeko which has been missed at the beginning of the match is a factor of elementary luck, rather than initial advantage of Roma.
Now the team has come on San Siro where the team demonstrated good results during the matches against the hosts of the stadium. It is necessary to remind you that one more host of the stadium is AC Milan. What is going on? In four previous matches of the current rivals on home arena Inter has managed to win only one victory (0:1, 1:2, 2:1, 1:1).
Bookmaker coefficients on the match Inter vs. Torino
And during the last Milan meeting of the team of Luciano Spalletti and at that time the team of Siniša Mihajlović which has taken place on the 5th of November, 2017 the hosts of San Siro only by miracle have avoided one more defeat on the 79th minute, after the direct shot of Eder (1:1). Though in that match, as well as now, an initial favorite was the Black and the Blues: Inter – 1.50, Torino – 7.00.
We will sum up the result! In the previous round the hosts and the guests of the forthcoming match have made completely opposite impression. And therefore now, bearing in mind such high coefficient of Torino, it is much more interesting to play against the initial favorite. We present to your attention a wager on the team of Walter Mazzarri.
