Read on for this week’s Serie A Matchday 6 betting advice, soccer analysis, and free soccer picks for the weekend fixtures involving Inter Milan, Torino, Sampdoria, and AC Milan.
Inter Milan vs. Torino FC
Saturday, September 10, 2022 – 12:00 PM EDT at San Siro Stadium
Serie A Trends
- Inter Milan is undefeated in 8 consecutive Serie A home meetings
- Inter Milan has won by 2 goals or more in their previous 6 Serie A home fixtures
- Torino has scored at least 1 goal in their last 8 Serie A away games
- Over 2.5 goals have landed in Torino’s last 3 away games and Inters most recent 12 overall
Low Mentality for the Nerazzurri
It hasn’t been a joyous week for Inter Milan players, coaches, or fans. Losing the Derby della Madonnina and their opening Champions League fixture has put an added dampener on their season efforts before they welcome an improving road team to the San Siro on Saturday.
Simone Inzaghi couldn’t overcome his team's Rossoneri rivals after surrendering a 1-0 lead that ultimately ended in a 3-2 loss.
Then, straight into another massive matchup against Bayern Munich, the Nerazzurri delivered minimal threats as the German side took an easy 3 points with a 2-0 scoreline.
While they’re also sitting eighth in the Serie A division, the pressure is on for Inzaghi to increase productivity before the club begins weighing up its options for a new head coach.
Torino Rising From the Ashes
Ivan Juric took a struggling Torino squad last term and has built them into a strong, extremely difficult-to-defeat team.
Following their season-opening defeat to the current league leaders Atalanta, Torino has bounced back with 3 consecutive wins and a fifth-place position in the standings.
However, their successes have notably come from newly promoted Serie B squads. However, this doesn’t change their goal-scoring efforts, landing at least one goal in the net from all but one game versus Lazio.
Inter Milan vs. Torino FC: Odds and Prediction
The available Serie A odds at Bookmakers Review expect a walkover from the home side, but Torino’s road efforts have been notable of late.
With both teams rarely struggling to find goals, the over 2.5 goals is a wager that makes a lot of sense.
Score Prediction: Inter Milan 2 - Torino 1
UC Sampdoria vs. AC Milan
Saturday, September 10, 2022 - 02:45 PM EDT at Luigi Ferraris Stadium
Serie A Trends
- AC Milan is undefeated in their previous 21 Serie A meetings
- AC Milan vs. Sampdoria has seen under 2.5 goals in 3 consecutive games
- Sampdoria has won just 1 of their last 8 Serie A games
Scudetto Defense Could Be Worse
While the defending Serie A champions would have hoped for a 100% beginning to their season, winning 3 and drawing 2 isn’t the worst start to their Scudetto defense.
After a successful derby meeting with Inter last week, Stefano Pioli will happily visit a struggling Sampdoria squad who’ve looked fragile since the opening weekend.
Rafael Leao has been a sniper for Pioli’s squad as Milan is averaging 2.29 points per game in 2022, with Manchester City and Liverpool being the other European clubs who’ve achieved greater.
Leao has 10 goals and 9 assists during this time, proving he is the most valuable member of the team.
Relegation Battle Begins
Unlike their weekend opponents, Sampdoria has suffered in the final third with a mere 2 goals scored this term.
Due to their lack of goal scoring, the Ligurian outfit is now sitting on two points with a depressing position in the relegation zone just above Cremonese and Monza.
Marco Giampaolo and Sampdoria are one of six teams who remain winless in a Serie A game this term, as he’ll prepare for a visit from his old club on Saturday.
Giampaolo’s men also boast the most defeats from the top five European leagues in 2022 thus far (16).
UC Sampdoria vs. AC Milan: Odds and Prediction
The current Serie A odds expect an easy outing for AC Milan, and I wouldn’t be surprised at a routine victory for the defending champions either.
It’s never easy to regain 100% fitness following a midweek encounter. Still, with the dying confidence in Sampdoria and their lackluster attack force, Pioli can mix and match his talent-rich squad to keep Milan unbeaten.
Score prediction: Sampdoria 0 - AC Milan 2
