Inter Milan vs Sampdoria Prediction. While hoping for AC Milan to lose their match against Sassuolo, Inter Milan will look to win at home to Sampdoria in an attempt to defend the Serie A title in the final week of the 2021/2022 league season.
Crazy Ball – A shock 2-1 loss to Bologna at the end of last month proved big for Inter Milan who are now two points behind AC Milan in the Serie A title race this season with the league only one game left to play.
So, while they lost head to head against their city rivals, Simone Inzaghi’s men’s only hope of retaining their title is to win over Sampdoria at the Giuseppe Meazza while expecting AC Milan to lose their game against Sassuolo.
But Sampdoria can also put up a tough fight for the reigning champions as they will enter this match with high confidence after beating Fiorentina 4-1 in their last game last weekend.
Currently the visitors sit 15th in the table with 36 points from 37 games after winning 10, drawing six and losing 17, with them only able to move up a maximum of one place in the final week of the Serie A season.
Inter Milan won 22 times against Sampdoria, lost six and drew 12 in their most recent 40 meetings. The two teams drew 2-2 in September 2021.
Simone Inzaghi doesn’t have any problem with the fitness of his players here.
Omar Colley, Sebastian Giovinco and Stefano Sensi are still injury problems for Sampdoria.
Inter Milan XI (3-5-3): Samir Handanovic; Milan Skriniar, Stefan de Vrij, Alessandro Bastoni; Denzel Dumfries, Nicolo Barella, Marcelo Brozovic, Hakan Calhanoglu, Ivan Perisic; Lautaro Martinez, Edin Dzeko
Sampdoria XI (4-1-4-1) : Emile Audero; Bartosz Bereszynski, Alex Ferrari, Maya Yoshida, Tommaso Augello; Thomas Rincon; Antonio Candreva, Morten Thorsby, Ronaldo Vieira, Abdelhamed Sabiri; Fabio Quagliarella
Inter Milan have a good record playing at the Giuseppe Meazza, being unbeaten in 33 of their last 35 home games in Serie A, while they have also won seven of their last eight home games against Sampdoria in all competitions.
Sampdoria have had a poor record away from Luigi Ferraris having failed to win nine of their last 10 away games in Serie A and they are not the favorites to stop Simone Inzaghi’s men from progressing here.
Score Prediction: Inter Milan 2-0 Sampdoria
