Sports Innovation previews the Serie A match between Hellas Verona and Inter Milan and offers team stats and betting tips with the latest odds.
Inter Milan continue their Serie A title defense by paying a visit to Hellas Verona for their second match of the season.
Simone Inzaghi’s side made a statement of intent in their season opener by thrashing Genoa 4-0. Inter may have lost key players this summer, but that changes nothing. They’re determined to build on last season’s success and will hope to prove so again on Friday night.
The same can’t be said for Verona, though. Eusebio Di Francesco had a forgettable debut last weekend as his 10-man squad fell to a 3-2 loss to Sassuolo, who exposed their lingering defensive issues.
Let’s have a look at the form of both sides and the stats from their previous encounters to come up with a reasonable betting prediction.
