Sampdoria vs Inter Milan Prediction

Inter Milan are one of the most in-form teams in Europe at the moment. Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku are in excellent form and possess the ability to single-handedly change the outcome of a game.

Sampdoria have been highly inconsistent this season and have conceded more goals than they have scored. They are expected to struggle against Inter, who have scored 40 goals in just 15 games this term.

We predict that another huge win is on the cards for Inter Milan, keeping the pressure on rivals AC Milan at the top of the table.

Prediction: Sampdoria 1-3 Inter Milan.
