Free online soccer betting tips for Inter – Genoa

Champions Inter Milan face Genoa at the Stadio San Siro in a game from the first round of the Serie A 2021/22 season. This will be official debut for the Nerazzurri’s new head coach Simone Inzaghi. Let’s preview it in these free online soccer betting tips.


It was a really turbulent summer for Inter Milan so far. The club won the Serie A title for a first time since 2010, but the head coach Antonio Conte had to leave the team because of some serious conflict with the board. Conte didn’t agree with the board’s decision to sell some key players in order to generate money. That’s why he resigned and he got replaced by Lazio’s manager Simone Inzaghi. He has some serious challenge ahead of him now – to keep the team at the top of the Calcio.


Right now Inter do not have the funds to make any major signings, but they still managed to do some transfer business. The club paid 16 million euro to Standard Liege for the Belgian centre-back Zinho Vanheusden while Parma’s Matteo Darmian also arrived at the San Siro. Surely the most interesting transfer was another one, though – the arrival of AC Milan’s former midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu on a free transfer. You can bet Milan’s fans are not happy with the decision Calhanoglu took for his future – joining the local rival. With him the Nerazzurri got an excellent set piece taker – something which would be useful for the team.


Because of their financial problems, partly due to the COVID-10 pandemic, Inter Milan had to say goodbye to one of their best players – the right back Achraf Hakimi. He was terrific for the club last season, but Inter were unable to refuse PSG’s 60 million offer for his services. The fans were furious with the club’s decision to sell to Moroccan international, but sometimes the directors have to take unpopular measures to secure the club’s financial health.


At the same time the Nerazzurri generated 19 million euro with Matteo Politano’s sale to Napoli while Antonio Candreva moved to Sampdoria for 2.50 million. Players like Joao Mario, Ashley Young, Dalbert, Daniele Padelli and Sebastiano Esposito left the club for good, too.


What worries the fans right now is the rumours of a possible sale of Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian super star is one of Inter’s most influential players and he was absolutely crucial for winning the Serie A last season. It’s being rumoured that Inter could decide to generate some cash by selling Lukaku which would be another huge hit for their ambitions. So far the Belgian striker remains a player of the Nerazzurri, but you know what the proverb says – when there’s a smoke, usually there’s a fire, too. Lukaku’s future remains a little bit uncertain at the moment.


Inter Milan already played their first friendly match for the summer. The team faced the Swiss side Lugano and made a 2-2 draw. Lugano got ahead in the result with two goals advantage, but the Italian champions equalised thanks to the strikes of Danilo D’Ambrosio and Martin Satriano. It was Simone Inzaghi’s unofficial debut for the club. He chose a 3-5-2 formation, but many of his first team players were still unavailable to play. This was a good chance for Inzaghi to test some young players in the squad such as Lucien Agoume, Martin Satriano, Facundo Colidio, Mattia Zanoti, Franco Carboni and others.


Most likely Simone Inzaghi will keep using the 3-5-2 formation. Not just because it was Antonio Conte’s title-winning formation, but also because these tactics are really preferred among the managers nowadays. Inzaghi used the formation in the first friendly match, but let’s see if he will continue doing it in future as well.


Here’s one thing you should remind you – Inter basically lost another player during the Euro 2020 this summer. This is the Danish international Christian Eriksen who nearly died during Denmark’s first game against Finland. It’s still not clear if Eriksen is going to play football again, but most likely it’s never going to happen. This means that Inter can’t use him or sell him anymore which is another bad news for the Nerazzurri. Eriksen didn’t really impress with Inter’s shirt so far, but he was a player who could generate some money on the market.


Genoa will start another campaign in the Serie A with the same mind in goal – avoid relegation. Davide Ballardini remains the head coach after being appointed in December. The 57-years old manager reached the goal he had last season – the keep the club in the Serie A. It was only normal for him to continue.


Genoa do not have the funds to make any transfer deals right now, but they still found a way to sign some new players. The goalkeeper Alberto Paleari arrived from Cittadella for 2 million euro while Aleksander Buksa, Lorenzo Andrenacci and Stefano Sabelli all arrived at the Luigi Ferraris as free agents.


Genoa already played two friendly games this summer, and won both of them. In their first one the Grifoni secured a 5-0 win against Stubai while in the second one they scored four times against Wacker Innsbruck II.


Genoa do not have any stars in their team, but they still have some experienced players they can rely on. Players such as Domenico Criscito, Milan Badelj, Valon Behrami, Stefano Sturaro and Mattia Destro. But they realise really well that surviving in the Serie A for another season won’t be easy at all.


These are the free online soccer betting tips for the Serie A clash between champions Inter Milan and Genoa. This should be a very good opportunity for the Nerazzurri to start their 2021/22 season in the best way possible – with winning three points. The head coach Simone Inzaghi will be motivated for a positive start as well. He knows how difficult it would be to replace Conte, but he already accepted this job – now everything is in his hands.
