Inter Milan’s struggled to win their first game of the season and will hope to change that in their next Serie A match against Spezia at the Giuseppe Meazza on Saturday afternoon.
The Nerazzurri will be hoping that this season is better than the last, when they not only failed to retain the league title but also lost the Scudetto to city rivals Milan.
Simone Inzaghi will be disappointed with his team’s narrow victory over newly promoted Lecce on Sunday, as it took an injury time goal from Denzel Dumfries to secure all three points. Hence, the Dutchman is expected to start this Saturday in a stronger Inter lineup.
If there is one player who can ensure a win at home, it is Romelu Lukaku. The unwanted Chelsea player scored on his return to Inter and appears to be a much happier player than he was at Stamford Bridge last season.
Spezia won their first game of the season by a single goal as well, and they have strengthened their defence over the summer by bringing in a new first-choice goalkeeper and centre-back.
Having said that, Spezia are not known for their goal-scoring exploits, having finished last season with the fifth-worst record in Serie A. Luca Gotti may be concerned that, rather than strengthening his front line, the club has purchased the loanees from last season outright.

- Under 2.5 @ 3.19
- 2ND HALF – OVER/UNDER – OVER 0.5 @1.07
