Over 2.5 Goals

Inter Milan have put their foot down in their quest to land the Serie A title in recent weeks and successive victories over rivals Juventus and Roma would have sent confidence levels at the club skyrocketing. Salernitana meanwhile, have claimed one point from the last 18 on offer and they could be set for another evening of struggle here.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Inter odds-on favourites to prevail

  • HOME: 1/6 (1.17) – 85.7%
  • DRAW: 13/2 (7.50) – 13.3%
  • AWAY: 20/1 (21.00) – 4.8%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Inter Milan’s form in Serie A has been imperious this season and the Nerazzurri showcased their class again in recent wins over Roma and Juventus. Inter have won nine of their 11 Serie A home games this term, while Salernitana have lost seven times in 11 assignments on their travels.

Last five H2Hs: Inter hold the upper hand

Inter thumped Salernitana 4-0 when the teams last met in September and that was the Milanese giant’s fourth win in five meetings with their less-illustrious rivals. Three of those victories were my meaty margins of four goals or more and Inter could run riot against a poor Salernitana outfit again on Friday.

Player to watch – Marcus Thuram

French forward Marcus Thuram scored the ninth goal of an increasingly productive campaign in Serie A when he found the net against Roma last week, and the 26-year-old will be eager to breach double figures with another strike against Salernitana on Friday evening.

Thuram’s creativity could be key

Alongside being a fine finisher, Thuram is both creative and unselfish in the final third, and the ex-Gladbach man has chipped in with seven assists in the Italian top flight this season. His eye for a pass could make him a useful option in the individual assist markets this week.
