US Sassuolo Calcio vs. Inter Milan FC

Saturday, October 08, 2022 – 09:00 AM EDT at MAPEI Stadium

Serie A Trends

  • Sassuolo are unbeaten in 6 of their last 7 Serie A fixtures
  • Inter Milan’s previous 8 Serie A away games have seen both teams score
  • Inter Milan has lost 3 consecutive Serie A away meetings

Champions League Confidence Boost

Following a triumphant UEFA Champions League success over the Spanish giants Barcelona midweek, Inter Milan returns to domestic action in hopes of transferring their UCL confidence boost to Sassuolo and diminishing a poor away record they’ve endured during the 2022/23 Serie A season thus far.

Still on the hunt for an away victory this term while losing four of their eight league encounters so far, the Nerazzurri haven’t had a worse beginning to a season in eleven years.

However, a first-half stoppage-time belter from Hakan Calhanoglu saw Inter claim the second position in their UCL group, providing Simone Inzaghi’s men with a much-needed turnaround in form.

Sitting in the ninth position of the Serie A standings, level on points with Sassuolo, puts Inzaghi’s reign as manager under threat. A 2-0 loss to this weekend’s opponents back in February will give the former Lazio boss much to think about when organizing his starting line-up.

Current Serie A Standings Are a Rarity

After 9 Serie A matchday’s on any given season, it’s a rarity to witness Sassuolo sitting above one of Calcio’s most formidable squads.

But currently, Sassuolo is in eighth, one place above Inter, and will be looking to capitalize on the underwhelming season their Saturday opponents have encountered thus far.

Sassuolo’s success has predominantly relied on their defensive structure this term, and a previous 5-0 dismantling of Salernitana saw the Black and Greens extend their clean sheet record to five games this season, a clean sheet record that is two above their entire record from last term and one of Europe’s best.

Sassuolo vs. Inter: Odds and Prediction

The Serie A betting odds favor Inter Milan with a -137 moneyline, but this wager is too risky despite their midweek success over Barca.

The Nerazzurri are undoubtedly capable of taking all three points at the MAPEI Stadium, but more trustworthy betting value can be found.

Expecting both teams to score is an exciting wager when evaluating Inter Milan’s incapability to stop the opposition from scoring this term, conceding in their last 8 away trips.

In addition, AC Milan has been the only team to prevent Sassuolo from scoring on home turf this season.

Score Prediction: Sassuolo 1 - Inter Milan 2

Getafe CF vs. Real Madrid CF

Saturday, October 08, 2022 - 03:00 PM EDT at Coliseum Alfonso Perez

La Liga Trends

  • Getafe are unbeaten in 15 of their last 18 La Liga home games
  • Getafe have been conceding 1.75 goals on average in their La Liga home meetings
  • Both teams have scored in Real Madrid’s previous 7 La Liga fixtures
  • Real Madrid has won their last 6 away games in all competitions

The Title Chase Is On

Following a 2021/22 La Liga season where Real Madrid was unmatched by their archrivals Barcelona, a revamped Blaugrana squad took first position from Los Blancos last weekend when Carlo Ancelotti couldn’t guide his men beyond 1-1 scoreline against Osasuna.

While a need for concern isn’t necessary, losing points to the likes of Osasuna will be seen as a waste of opportunity.

That said, Real have still won 10 of their last 11 games in all competitions this season, and a Champions League schedule was likely hindering the mind of Ancelotti.

The schedule isn’t going to get any easier with a UCL meeting against Shakhtar and the El Classico against Barcelona four days after.

A Lack of Consistency

Sitting in 14th position of the La Liga table, Getafe struggles to find consistency after taking a mere 7 points from seven meetings this term.

Quique Sanchez Flores will understand the task of facing Los Blanco this weekend, but the Deep Blue Ones can find solace in knowing they have a fresher squad without European duties on their calendar.

Despite their current table positioning, Getafe has lost just 1 of their last 3 domestic fixtures against Real Madrid and defeated the Spanish giants 1-0 last season.

Also, Los Blancos have collected just one point from their previous two visits to the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

Getafe vs. Real Madrid: Odds and Prediction

Unsurprisingly, the La Liga betting odds are heavily juiced in Real Madrid’s favor, but we can’t justify the -222 price tag enough to place this wager in our betting slips.

Elsewhere, we can find great value in expecting three or more goals. Getafe has the potential to harm Los Blancos during this fixture, but we also know that Ancelotti’s men will want to avoid surrendering more points to Barca.

Therefore, a 2-1 or 3-1 scoreline in favor of the visitors can give us an excellent betting position with over 2.5 goals.

Score prediction: Getafe 1 - Real Madrid 2

Soccer Pick: Over 2.5 Goals (-125) [1.25u wager returns 1u of profit] at Everygame
